Almost 3 year old not napping suddenly

My boy will be 3 in October. Suddenly in the past two weeks, he has stopped napping. He stays quiet by himself in his bed and plays, but just doesn't fall asleep. He'll stay like this for an hour or two, depending how long I want to wait for him to fall asleep. He's not overly cranky come late afternoon, which makes me think he may be dropping his nap altogether. The problem is at night, he won't be asleep for more than 10 hours...sometimes it'll take him an hour and a half to fall asleep at night. We have the same soothing routine for naptime and bedtime, and we keep a strict schedule on time for both.

Could he be possibly be dropping his nap for good already?

My kids all dropped napping before age 3. It was tricky to go anywhere late afternoon or early evening, then they would fall asleep in the car. But my kids went down at 7, and got 12 hours at night.
