Prince Louis, the youngest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, has been relatively out of the public eye since he was born in April. But today, his royal mom gave fans a rare but brief update on her little one.

“Louis’ getting bigger, I can’t believe he’s like seven months, he’s getting to be a big boy,” she told well-wishers during her visit to Leicester with Prince William today, according to People.

Kate also shared how her other two kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are doing ahead of the holidays. “They’re doing well, thank you,” she told a fan. “They’re getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and the Christmas trees are going up.”

We can only imagine how cute the Cambridges’ Christmas card will be this year, now with Louis in the picture.

The last time we saw the royal kids together was for their grandfather Prince Charles’ birthday portraits, which were released earlier this month. In the sweet family photos, the trio appears with their family—including Duchess Camilla and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex—in the gardens of Clarence House. In another candid shot, little Louis even grabs his grandpa’s nose.

During her walkabout today, Kate also opened up about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s future baby, who’s due next spring. When asked if she was excited for the new addition, she said, “Absolutely. It’s such a special time to have little kiddies. And a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’ll be really special.”

Earlier in the day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid their respects to the victims of the helicopter crash outside the Leicester City Football Club (LCFC) stadium. After the visit, the couple received special gifts for their kids: little LCFC jerseys with their names monogrammed on the back.

Prince William, classic dad jokester, quipped that his brood would be fighting over the presents.
