Prince Louis set to attend special Christmas service with Queen for first time

Prince Louis is set to take part in a Royal Family Christmas tradition for the first time this year and will be joined by the Queen and other leading royals for the big day.

Every Christmas the Queen gathers her family at their Sandringham Estate in Norfolk to celebrate the festive season.

On the day itself, the royals will attend a service at St Mary Magdalene Church where Louis could make his debut this year.

His elder siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, previously joined their parents Prince William and Kate Middleton at the Christmas church service in 2016, reports My London.

As the tradition couldn’t go ahead last year due to Covid, the Royal Family will resume their usual plans and head to Sandringham with the Queen this year.

As a result, it is expected that Louis will make his first appearance alongside his parents, siblings and the rest of his family at the church.

This is not the only important tradition Louis is yet to check off as he has also never been on an official royal tour, despite being significantly over the average age to do so.

His older brother George was only 10-months-old when he travelled to Australia and New Zealand in 2014.

When his older sister Charlotte was born in 2015, she and George both travelled to Canada in 2016 and to Poland and Germany in 2017 with their parents.

Even Louis' younger cousin Archie Mountbatten-Windsor has been on his first official tour.

He joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in South Africa in 2019 before they stepped back from their senior royal duties and relocated to the US.

The Cambridge family were due to carry out another visit to Australia at the beginning of 2020 to visit towns ravaged by the bush fires, but couldn't due to Covid.

Louis is also yet to make his debut as a pageboy at a royal wedding, despite the fact that his brother and sister have taken on the important roles several times.

His siblings were among the wedding parties at the ceremonies of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Harry and Meghan as well as Pippa Middleton and James Matthews.

Louis' uncle James Middleton got married earlier this year in France but it is not known if the little Prince acted as pageboy.
