Prince Louis' Antics During the Coronation Had Royal Fans in Stitches | “True Star of This Family”
King of expressions and funny antics, Prince Louis was the hero at King Charles III's coronation ceremony. The little royal lad appeared visibly bored during the ceremony that lasted nearly two hours. It was a long day that took a toll on everyone, including the 5-year-old who left royal fans in stitches.
Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest son has quite a reputation for his balcony antics at royal events and he often steals the show. This time, too, he didn't disappoint and the much-anticipated royal ceremony had a hint of "comedic relief," thanks to Prince Louis. The newly-crowned King and Queen of England appeared as the successors of your highness, late Queen Elizabeth waved to the public from the balcony of Buckingham Palace in London. They were joined by Prince William, his wife and three children.
The youngest lad watched the ceremony of his grandfather being crowned the king. But he frequently yawned during "important" moments, awkwardly moved his hands when he spoke and pointed something out to his parents by saying, 'Look, over there.' LOL. This isn't all. The young royal had his unique style of waving at the balcony. He first tapped his hands down to mimic the sounds of the drums marching on the sides of the balcony and waved his hands from side to side when his father, William told him to 'wave.' The poor boy looked visibly absent (mentally) throughout the ceremony.
The royal fans took to social media to share a laugh at his relatable antics because the coronation ceremony was surely an ordeal for the youngster. Twitter was flooded with comments, with one user, @isaguor writing, "From the first time Prince Louis stepped out onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace, he has been and always will be the main character on the balcony." Another user, @ChidiNwatu said, "Prince Louis: The true star of this family."
@RashidLui commented, "Pretty sure my kid wouldn't just be yawning." Another user @ICailie quickly replied, "They will be dozing off like every normal kid." Like seriously. How much can we expect from a young boy like him? Twitter agreed. A hilarious comment by @amcbluewave read, "Louie's is like 'I am not the heir, I am not spare and I don't care!'" LOL. @LucieStools wrote, "Louis behaved as long as he possibly could." And we couldn't agree more because his fun moments made the Coronation worth watching.

HAHA! Young King Charles and Prince Louis have a lot in common! 🤣🤣🤣— Prince & Princess of Wales (@TribesBritannia) May 3, 2023
But this isn't new. In 2019 when Prince Louis made his first balcony appearance, he wooed the royal fans with his behavior at Trooping the Color. And in 2022, the young royal was hailed the "real star" at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. He lived up to his 'reputation' at King Charles III's Coronation as well. Prince Louis was away for the rest of the event after the coronation reached the 90-minute mark. However, he returned for the National Anthem and sang with friends and family.
