CORONATION – The king of grimaces, it’s him. Whether sticking his tongue out at his mother or covering his ears on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee last year, Prince Louis has never disappointed his court. And once is not custom, the 5-year-old boy managed to appease his audience this Saturday, May 6, during the coronation of his grandfather, King Charles III.

Already, on entering Westminster Abbey in London, where the ceremony was held, the king’s grandson was photographed yawning.

According to DailyMail, Louis was also seen kicking, causing his mother, Princess of Wales, to whisper to him to calm down. The prince then slumped in his seat, groaning, demonstrating that the two-hour ceremony was perhaps too taxing for a five-year-old child.

The complicity between Louis and Charlotte also melted Internet users on Twitter, who found them ” too cute ” And “crunchy”.

His facial expressions and theatrical expressions during the aerial parade, the last highlight of the day, definitely won over the public. “Prince Louis is an icon, as always on the balcony”, writes a user, recalling the scene a year earlier, during the Queen’s Jubilee.

While Louis and Charlotte were in attendance for the coronation, their 9-year-old older brother Prince George, now second in line, was alongside his grandfather as page of honor – in charge, in particular, of keeping the train of the king.
