Prince Louis pulls Kate Middleton's arm outside church service

Prince Louis was not having it.

The 4-year-old royal was spotted tugging on Kate Middleton’s arm in a valiant attempt to get her to stop talking and move on as her mum greeted well-wishers outside St Mary Magdalene church on Christmas Day.

The outing marked the first time the youngest child of the Prince and Princess of Wales joined his parents and siblings – Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte – for the royal family’s traditional church service.

Although Louis apparently attended the service last year, COVID-19 precautions prevented the royal from his traditional walk to the service, beyond saying hello to members of the public lined up outside.

Louis is the family that stole the show during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

The youngster made a series of memorable faces during an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the Trooping of the Color ceremony.

He then exhibited some decidedly unrealistic but totally age-appropriate behavior when he was caught putting his hand over his mother’s mouth while watching the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

He also managed to get into a fight with cousin Lena Tindall, who refused to share candy with him.

William and Kate apparently recognized the star from the Jubilee celebrations.

In a summary of Instagram photos from the four days of festivities, they wrote: “We all had a great time, especially Louis… 👀”.

Louis wasn’t the only junior royal to make his Christmas walk debut this year.

Zara and Mike Tindall brought their daughters – Mia and Lena – along for the ride, although their 1-year-old son, Lucas, stayed home.

Princess Beatrice attended with her stepson Christoper Woolf and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, while their 1-year-old daughter Sienna stayed at home. Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie was also there along with her husband Jack Brooksbank. They also left their 1-year-old son, August, at home.

It’s certainly a bittersweet Christmas celebration for the royal family, as it’s the first since Queen Elizabeth II passed away in September aged 96.
