Prince Louis of Wales may only be five years old, but he has already captivated the British public with his lively and mischievous manner.
As seen in the recent Channel 5 documentary “The Fab Five: The King’s Grandchildren,” royal experts have crowned Louis as an online sensation thanks to his hilarious facial expressions and spirited hijinks at major royal events.
Prince Louis of Wales’ antics
During Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022, Prince Louis won over fans worldwide with his antics on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
Images of him squeezing his ears shut and screaming loudly as RAF planes flew overhead instantly went viral across social media.
Former royal correspondent Emily Andrews noted how the young prince’s amusing mannerisms have become ubiquitous memes.
Perhaps Louis’ most iconic moment was at the Platinum Jubilee parade on The Mall when he put his hand over his mother Kate Middleton’s mouth as she tried to discipline him.
This prompted King Charles III himself to take over watching the rambunctious child.
Author Ingrid Seward reflected on how Louis appeared “a real handful,” leading Kate to temporarily place him in his grandfather’s care.
However, political commentator Ayesha Hazarika said this only showed the close bond between Charles and his grandson.
Even Princess Charlotte, known as the most mature of the Cambridge children, cannot always rein in Louis’ spirited behavior.
But that’s precisely why he has become a sensation both in the UK and around the world.
