Prince Louis is reportedly struggling to understand the loss of Queen Elizabeth as Princess Catherine revealed he’s ‘asking questions’ now.
- The Princess of Wales is said to have shared how her eldest son Prince George is “now realizing” how important Queen Elizabeth was.
- Whilst Prince Louis is supposedly struggling to fully comprehend his great-grandmother’s passing and is “asking questions” about Balmoral.
- This royal news comes as we revealed the special jewelry choice that united Catherine, Meghan, Sophie and Zara at Queen Elizabeth II's funeral.
On Monday, September 19th the Royal Family said a final farewell to Queen Elizabeth II as she was laid to rest in St George’s Chapel following a poignant State Funeral that was watched by millions. Two of the Queen’s great-grandchildren, nine-year-old Prince George and seven-year-old Princess Charlotte, had special roles in the funeral procession at Westminster Abbey and attended the services to pay their respects to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. Now it’s been suggested that their younger brother Prince Louis is struggling to fully comprehend the significance of the Queen’s loss.
As reported by the Evening Standard (opens in new tab), the Princess of Wales recently reflected upon how her two sons are coping with the death of their extraordinary great-grandmother and Prince Louis is apparently "asking questions".
The day before Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, King Charles was joined by other senior royals including the Prince and Princess of Wales as he hosted a reception for dignitaries from across the Commonwealth at Buckingham Palace. Princess Catherine is said to have spoken with Australia’s Governor-General, David Hurley and opened up about her sons.
Recalling this conversation, David claimed that she revealed Prince George is “sort of now realizing how important his great-grandmother was and what is going on”.
Whilst four-year-old Prince Louis is reportedly struggling to understand in quite the same way as his older brother.
“The younger one is now asking questions like, ‘do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral’ and things like that, because she’s not going to be there?” the Governor-General went on to allege.
The Wales family is understood to have regularly spent time with the late monarch at her beloved Scottish home, Balmoral Castle, during her summer breaks there, as did many of the Queen’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren over the years. These summer trips are likely part of incredibly precious memories of the late monarch for her family as they grieve her loss.
Whilst her youngest son might not have fully realized the significance of the Queen’s loss like Prince George, during a walkabout in Windsor on September 10th. Here Princess Catherine revealed Prince Louis’ sweet first words after hearing the sad news of his great-grandmother’s passing.
As reported by The Independent (opens in new tab), royal well-wisher Banita Ranow claimed the Princess was “welling up” as she explained that “Louis said, ‘at least Grannie is with great-grandpa now’.”
Following the Queen’s State Funeral and Committal Service the national mourning period has now come to an end, though the Royal Family will remain in official mourning until seven days afterwards.
