Kate reveals that Prince Louis is on the move at V&A Dundee opening



A baby prince is on the loose! The Duchess of Cambridge shared an update on Prince Louis to the crowds in Dundee, Scotland.

Speaking to the crowd gathered outside the V&A Dundee on Tuesday, Kate told them that Prince Louis, who just turned nine months old, is a fast crawler and that she’d love to bring Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the museum.

Royal photographer Mark Stewart overheard Kate sharing these updates on the Cambridge children.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Dundee to officially open the V&A Dundee Museum and to later meet with Michelin employees that will be affected by the upcoming tire plant closure.

“Last February, I was delighted to become Patron of The V&A in London,” Kate said in a speech at the museum’s opening.

“Now, nearly a year later, I’m thrilled to be standing in a brand-new V&A: one which has been built for the city of Dundee and for Scotland, and which is already picking up international awards. In its first four months alone, it welcomed over 360,000 visitors – a truly remarkable feat.”

Kate told schoolchildren gathered outside to meet her and William that she’d “never seen a museum like this” before.

“I have been captivated by the breath-taking architecture and the sheer range of design on display,” Kate said.

“But most of all I’ve been moved by the passion of the people who work here, and the dedication of all those who have helped make this important project succeed.”

The Japanese architect who designed the V&A Dundee, Kengo Kuma, was also on hand for the opening, and Their Royal Highnesses met with him following a tour of the facilities.

Kensington Palace noted that Kate’s visit builds upon her “keen interest in promoting the visual arts, and highlighting the value that public institutions like V&A Dundee can offer local communities, particularly in terms of increased accessibility to worldclass art and design.”
