Royal fans speculate whether Prince Louis was left at home due to Jubilee antics

Royal fans are speculating over whether Prince Louis was left at home for the Queen's funeral today (Monday, September 19) because of his cheeky antics during the monarch's Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this year.

Prince William and Kate Middleton chose to only bring two of their children to today's service – Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven.

The decision to leave their youngest Louis, four, at home is thought to have come after the Prince and Princess of Wales had conversations with their children beforehand.

However, speculation is rife that there may have been other factors impacting the decision given that Louis famously misbehaved during the Jubilee celebrations in June.

In pictures that have since gone viral, the young royal was seen making a range of cheeky gestures including poking his tongue out during the Trooping the Colour and putting his hand over his mother's mouth.

He was also spotted holding his hands over his ears and yelling as jets roared past Buckingham Palace.

One royal fan joked alongside snaps of Louis: "People thinking Prince Louis isn't there because he’s too young. The real reason: High chance of chaos."

Sharing the picture of Louis covering Kate's mouth, another added: "Prince Louis would have caused absolute chaos if he was brought to the funeral, and he would have probably gone viral like this."

"You just know they put the Emoji Movie on channel 5 for Prince Louis cos they couldn't risk bringing him along to the funeral [sic]," a third joked.

While a fourth said: "Prince Louis would have been a riot at that funeral."

Following his Jubilee antics, Kate and William even joked about Louis' behaviour in a statement.
