The Prince’s birth was registered on May 1, 2018

All births in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland must be registered within 42 days of the child being born, and that’s true for members of the royal family as well. According to the official website of the royal family, Prince Louis’s birth was registered at Kensington Palace on May 1, 2018, and was witnessed by a Registrar from the Westminster Register Office.

Here we see the Cambridges arriving—Louis in his mum’s arms, and Prince William leading his two older children Princess Charlotte and Prince George.
