Why Prince Louis was the star at King Charles’ coronation – 12 unmissable photos

Prince Louis may be the youngest member of his family, but he has a big personality which he wasn’t afraid to show during King Charles’ coronation. One year ago, on 6 May 2023, the then five-year-old joined his parents Prince William and Princess Kate and his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Westminster Abbey for the historic occasion.  Louis was spotted attending the ceremony for a short time before quietly leaving midway through the two-hour event alongside his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. This marked the first major formal event attended by the youngster, who did not attend his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in 2022. His exit was planned due to his young age, offering him a break from the cameras, but he later rejoined the festivities for the King’s Procession and Buckingham Palace balcony appearance. While the focus was firmly on King Charles and Queen Camilla, who were crowned in front of 2,000 guests at the country’s first coronation to be staged in 70 years, Louis couldn’t help but win over the hearts …

The ‘cheeky’ gift from Prince Louis that put a spring in King Charles’ step

Stay ahead of the curve with our weekly guide to the latest trends, fashion, relationships and more Stay ahead of the curve with our weekly guide to the latest trends, fashion, relationships and more King Charles shared a sign that he had a real “spring in his step” on his return to public duty yesterday (30 April). The King, 75, subtly let royal fans know that he is feeling good by wearing a pink T-rex tie – reportedly a gift from one of his grandchildren – on his visit to a cancer treatment centre in London. According to commentators, it is likely a gift from Prince Louis, six, who reportedly has a penchant for dinosaurs. Royal expert Robert Hardman told the MailOnline: “His tie said it all. It has been a favourite since he became King, appearing on away days, at Palace receptions and even a trip to church. “Featuring a blue dinosaur pattern on a pink silk background, it is a cheeky play on his official ‘Charles III Rex’ cypher.

Christopher Intagliata/NPR It was the early 1970s in Los Angeles, high-rises had begun to dot downtown, the city was a center of pop culture, music and film. A twenty-something Louis Sahagún had just dropped out of junior college and was looking for work when he came across an opening for a utility worker at the Los Angeles Times, the city’s daily newspaper. Sahagún got the job and swept the lead dust around the printing machines, but it was the environment of the buzzing newsroom that widened young Sahagún’s eyes. “Even the other utility men and women, the floor sweepers … they were an exciting, incredibly diverse group of folks,” he told NPR. He recalls meeting an anarchist poet over lunch with fellow utility workers: “I was electrified by the idea that I worked shoulder to shoulder with a person like that.” The atmosphere inspired Sahagún to further his education, and eventually he worked his way up to becoming a staff writer at the …

Prince Louis’ adorable request to Strictly stars during visit | Royal | News

Strictly Come Dancing head judge Shirley Ballas has revealed Prince Louis made an adorable request when visiting the show with his mum Kate Middleton and sister Princess Charlotte. The six-year-old enjoyed a spontaneous behind-the-scenes tour of Elstree studios in Hertfordshire last December that left them enchanted with the production’s inner workings. During their visit, the Royal family received a firsthand glimpse into the life on a television set. This included a moment of stepping into the judges’ shoes under Shirley’s own guidance. As a charming memento from their visit, each family member also got a gift. Speaking to The Sun, Shirley expressed her admiration for the Royal youngsters: “They are beautiful. When they visited we had these crowns on set, so I thought it would be a nice idea to give the little girl a crown and I got him a nice box of sweets.” However, showbiz being unpredictable as usual, the thoughtful presenting of gifts didn’t go quite as expected. Despite appreciating his box of sweets, Prince Louis was captivated by Princess Charlotte’s crown …

Prince Louis 6th birthday photo by Kate Middleton released

LONDON — A usually anodyne royal tradition, the release of a birthday photo, attracted unusual attention Tuesday, when Kensington Palace shared a grinning close-up of Prince Louis to mark his 6th birthday. The photo was taken by his mother, Catherine, Princess of Wales, and it was the first image by her that has been released since undisclosed editing prompted photo agencies to retract one royal family portrait and issue caveats about others. “Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis! Thank you for all the kind wishes today,” the Tuesday post read. The image included a camera emoji and was attributed to Catherine. Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis! ????
