Despite giving birth to Prince Louis so recently, Kate Middleton has attended two major royal occasions.
Kate attended Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle, as well as the Trooping the Colour for The Queen’s official birthday celebrations.
However, it’s been claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge could now resume her maternity leave, meaning it’s possible she could be out of the public eye until October.
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told the Express: “Kate will be resuming Royal duties after taking extended maternity leave as expected after Louis’s birth, probably in the autumn.”
Biographer Duncan Larcombe added: “It is traditional for new Royal mums to take a six-month break from official engagements.

“The wedding doesn’t count because it was a family affair but other than that, she will pick and choose her engagements.
“If she wanted, Kate could disappear into the background until October!”
It’s been reported that Prince Louis did attend Trooping the Colour but he was hidden from view.
It is believed that the tiny tot was there with the rest of the family, but rather than be stood outside for the crowds to see he was most likely kept inside with the children’s nanny.
Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who is tasked with looking after the three children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is believed to have been keeping a close eye on Louis while Princess Charlotte joined the rest of the clan outside.
Back in 2015, when Princess Charlotte was six weeks old, she too was kept inside during the Trooping, so it’s expected that the same thing happened for Louis.
Prince George left people in hysterics during the Trooping of the Colour, as his cousin was forced to cover his mouth to stop him chattering away.
