Prince Louis will have two new family playmates to have fun with soon

Prince Louis has two potential playmates coming very soon...

Prince Louis already has his big brother and sister Prince George and Princess Charlotte to play with but if he wants someone who is closer in age to him, he just has a wait a little longer before he has two new friends.

Prince Louis is the youngest of Kate and William's three children and although Princess Charlotte has taken to being a big sister like a natural, there is a three year age gap between her and Louis, and there is five years between Louis and Prince George.

So while the Cambridge children will undoubtedly have a close bond, Princess Charlotte and Prince George might want to enjoy games that are a little too advanced for Prince Louis to get involved with at the moment.

Luckily though, if Prince Louis wants to play with someone who is a little closer to his age he'll have two candidates coming very soon.

Mum Kate's sister Pippa Middleton is due to give birth to her first child with husband James Matthews in the next few months.

Pippa has decided to follow Kate's lead and hasn't discovered if she is expecting a little boy or girl yet.

So Prince Louis will have to wait in anticipation like the rest of us until the baby is born to see who will be joining his social circle.

The youngest of the Cambridge's children won't have to wait as long for their second playmate's arrival. Spencer Matthew's son is due to be born any day now and would make a brilliant friend for Prince Louis as their families cross over.

Spencer is Pippa's husband's brother, so Pippa and James's children and Spencer and Vogue's children will be cousins.

Although Prince Louis won't technically be related to Spencer's son, it's likely that they'll get to play together quite often as Kate and Pippa are incredibly close and they'll want to make sure their children have a close bond.

Spencer is also keen for his son to have a close bond with his brother's little one. Speaking on This Morning about his niece or nephew's arrival, Spencer said: 'I think it will be great for the kids to kind of grow up together and such, and we feel very blessed.'
