Prince Louis, the youngest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, once again managed to steal the royal show during the King and Queen’s Coronation Procession. The four-year-old reportedly received the loudest cheer from the crowds as he waved from the window of his parents’ carriage during the procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.
Despite being fourth in line to the throne behind his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as well as his father Prince William, Prince Louis has proven to be incredibly popular with Britons. This is largely due to his adorable and mischievous antics at royal events, such as the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which went viral on social media.
During the historic occasion of King Charles’ Coronation, Prince Louis once again stole the spotlight from the newly-crowned monarch and Queen Camilla.
While the King and Queen’s Gold State Coach was undoubtedly spectacular, it was Prince William and Kate’s carriage that shone the brightest once Prince Louis peered out of the window and waved at the crowds.
According to reports, one woman even cried out “Oh Louis!” as the carriage passed by, highlighting the young prince’s immense popularity with the British public.
The Coronation Procession, which took place on May 6, saw King Charles and Queen Camilla travel in the King and Queen’s coach, followed by a carriage carrying the Prince and Princess of Wales and their children. The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and their two children were in the carriage behind them, while the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Anne’s husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, sat in the last carriage.
As for Prince Louis, his endearing presence at the event once again proved why he is one of the most beloved members of the royal family. Despite his young age, the prince has already captured the hearts of millions of people around the world, and his future within the royal family looks brighter than ever.
