The 4-year-old son of Kate Middleton and Prince William displayed some non-regal behavior during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday. A video of him putting his hand over mother Kate Middleton’s mouth has gone viral on social media.
When the Duchess of Cambridge, who is 40, tried to stop him, the boy made a series of faces, poking his tongue out and putting his thumb to his nose while wiggling his remaining fingers. Naturally, cameras were pointed at them and captured the whole thing.
Later, Louis decided to stand up on his chair and threw a cushion, which is when Kate made the wise decision to take a break for a spell with her son. Retired rugby player, Mike Tindall also noticed Louis’s behavior and he jokingly told Louis that he was watching him.
The 4-year-old also took time to give his mom a big kiss and spend part of it sitting on his grandfather Prince Charles’ lap. This was not the first time that Louis showed such a rambunctious spirit in public.
Last Thursday, at the Colour Ceremony, he and his siblings, Prince George and Prince Charlotte, looked on at the procession through the Palace windows. Louis stole the show with a spirited salute.
He then went to the balcony as the royal family gathered to wave, barrelling past his 96-year-old great-grandmother for a prime viewing position. Louis was seen making a host of animated faces including an over-the-top reaction to loud airplanes flying overhead which entailed a scream, hands over his ears, and eyes screwed shut.
At the end of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, Louis joined his parents, siblings, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and the Queen on the Buckingham Palace balcony. However, this time his mother took no chances as she stood directly behind her son.
