This month’s Platinum Jubilee events celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s long and storied reign, but she wasn’t the only royal in the spotlight. Her great-grandson Prince Louis made headlines for his hilarious antics — as did the reaction from his sister, Princess Charlotte.
Princess Charlotte had a hilarious reaction to Prince Louis’ behavior
Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte are the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, as is Prince George, their oldest son. All three kids were highly visible at various Platinum Jubilee events, from the Trooping the Colour to a pageant.
Louis quickly captured hearts — and headlines — as fans watched his animated waving, bored expressions, and constant movement. Though the prince was mostly left to his own devices while the rest of the royal family smiled for the cheering crowd, his sister took matters into her own hands.
As the family watched the Jubilee pageant, Louis kicked back in his seat and put his feet in Charlotte’s lap. However, his older sister wouldn’t stand for that behavior. In a clip posted to Hello!’s Instagram account, the young princess shoves her pesky little brother’s feet off her lap before turning back to the pageant.
“Don’t worry Princess Charlotte, we all know how annoying younger siblings can be,” the outlet captioned the video.
People soon filled the comments section with their thoughts on the funny situation and praised the princess for standing her ground.
“Hahahaha she’s gonna be something when she grows up being the only little princess they have,” one follower commented.
Another wrote, “Charlotte is such a character. Love her.”
Others laughed about Prince Louis’ hyperactivity. “It’s gonna be a long day for His mommy and daddy,” someone joked.
Another laughed, “Kate’s got her hands full with that one. Reminds me of young Harry.”
The world saw Prince Louis act like a typical child at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations
Even though Louis wasn’t exactly on his best behavior, fans of the royal family loved seeing the 4-year-old let loose and act like a normal kid in boring situations.
According to one source, Louis’ behavior was entirely in line with his everyday personality.
“He’s a cheeky monkey — a typical third child,” a royal insider told People. “It’s nice that the world got to see him enjoying himself.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton were in on the joke
Though some observers thought Prince Louis’ parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, might be embarrassed that their youngest child was acting up on such a big stage, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed they were in on the joke with a series of tweets.
“What a fantastic weekend of celebrations,” the royal couple posted to their official Twitter account. “Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends, and loved ones has been extremely special.”
They posted a series of photos of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and finished the thread with a final observation:
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…,” accompanied by the eyes emoji.
While the world is more focused on Prince Louis’ behavior, the video clip of Princess Charlotte reacting to her little brother’s behavior shows he isn’t the only young royal with a mind of their own.
