How Prince Louis stole the show in 2022

Prince Louis has earned himself a legion of fans with his antics in 2022.

Wales’ youngest child, aged four, has a knack for stealing the show at royal engagements – and he was in particularly good shape for the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

Louis is seen covering his ears angrily during a flyover in Trooping the Colour, and his seven-year-old sister, Charlotte, scolds him for waving too much at a carriage procession.

But the real climax came a few days later, when the young prince sat with his family in the royal box to watch the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee pageant.

Here, FEMAIL recaps Prince Louis’ best moments from the past year.

Charlotte takes her out on a royal carriage ride

There was another hilarious moment on June 2, when Prince Louis, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte arrived at the palace with their mother and Queen Camilla.

The three kids were waving joyfully at the waiting crowds as they made their first appearance in their carriage — but Charlotte wasn’t shy about correcting her younger brother.

When George, age nine, and Charlotte both stopped to wave, Louis continued, smiling, to the waiting crowds who had queued to catch a glimpse of the royal family.

But Charlotte quickly discovered her brother’s misstep, and thrust his hand into his bosom to put an end to the enthusiastic offer.

Later, Prince Louis followed in the footsteps of his older brothers as they bowed their heads to salute as the royal motorcade returned to Buckingham Palace.

I grew up holding my father’s hand

It was a few months before Prince Louis’ actions made headlines again.

This time around, the young royal stole the spotlight when he was dropped off for his first day at school.

The Prince and Princess of Wales were taking Louis, his brother George and sister Charlotte “to settle in for the afternoon” at Lambrook School in Berkshire when their youngest decided he was too old to hold his father’s hand.

Prince William has been pictured holding Princess Charlotte’s hand on his left side – vying for the attention of his youngest with the other.

But Louis apparently was not interested, and simply ignored William’s efforts.

William gave in after a few moments, instead gently stroking the back of his son’s head – which Louis then flicked.

refusing to stand up for a family Christmas card

The Prince and Princess of Wales shared their annual Christmas card last week, which showed the royal family and their three children walking hand in hand.

That is, other than Prince Louis, who seemed to decide not to hold his older sister’s hand in the casual photo.

Kensington Palace shared the photo with the caption: “Sharing a new photo of the family for this year’s Christmas card!”

The Christmas photo shoot, which was taken privately at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk earlier this year, was taken by one of their favorite and trusted photographers, Matt Porteous.

She pictures the family earlier in the year, all dressed in casual clothes – with both William and Kate in jeans and all three children in fair-weather shorts.

Louis was happy to hold his mother’s hand – but he didn’t get along with his sister.

People on social media found the photo funny for this reason, with one writing: “Of course Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis don’t hold hands.”

Another said, “As a younger brother I can totally relate to him.”

After a year of mischievous antics – and legions of new fans – we can’t help but wonder what Prince Louis might be up to in 2023.
