With his parents and siblings, Prince Louis enjoyed a hectic – but enjoyable – spring and early summer. He not only got to attend his grandpa King Charles’ coronation, but he also got to wave to members of the public from the Buckingham Palace balcony during the Trooping the Colour celebrations, as well as march with his siblings.
The baby prince, who celebrated his birthday a few weeks ago, has been seen heckling his mother and making numerous funny faces throughout his childhood. He has become a fan favourite, and we are excited to see what the future holds for him.
Having said that, one royal expert has issued a disturbing message.
In April, Prince Louis became five years old. The baby prince has quickly become one of the most popular young royals in the eyes of the people, trailing only his two brothers, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and father, Prince William, in the line of succession.
Nonetheless, royal analyst Daniela Elser takes a different stance, delivering a stark warning about how it may influence his future.
“Put that kid in public, perhaps near a military parade or on Buckingham Palace’s balcony, and the five-year-old will guarantee Fleet Street’s photo editors a cheeky, charming shot,” Elser said. “Oh, it’s an adorable image, and you’d have to be Cruella de Ville without the Dalmatians not to be charmed and delighted by it.”
“But, looking at that Glasto flag, I believe we’ve reached a tipping point – Louis has gone from royal kidlet to pop culture caricature, from child to entertaining character.” Except he’s a boy, not a never-ending meme.”
Furthermore, the royal expert stated that if Louis is constantly portrayed as a comedic character, we may end up with “another Prince Harry.”
“We owe it to Louis not to make a joke out of him, not to make him a punchline or a cartoonish figure,” Elser said.
“And if we fail, 30 years from now, it will be him sitting on a couch, pouring out his hurt feelings to Oprah’s hologram.”
What are your thoughts on this? Should Louis’ photograph be avoided at all costs, or is it simply a part of his life? Please share this article with your friends and family on Facebook and let us know what you think!
