Prince Louis’s ‘cheeky’ encounter with doting royal fan on Christmas walkout laid bare


Prince Louis made his first public appearance on Christmas Day this year.

Prince Louis was described as “cheeky” by a seasoned royal fan. The younger son of Prince William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales, stole the heart of 42-year-old Gemma Clark, who had the chance to meet some of the royals attending the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church on Sunday.

Speaking of her encounter with the Waleses, the royal well-wisher said: “I love them to bits, especially the children, the children are amazing.

“Prince Louis – I love Louis. He’s always cheeky, that Louis is, but I love him.”

Louis appeared at ease as he stopped exchanging a few words and smiles with royal fans lined up outside of the Sandringham chapel.

Princess Anne absent from Sandringham Christmas service but for good reason

Princess Anne was notably absent from the royal family’s annual Christmas church trip in Sandringham, however the Princess Royal had a very good reason for not attending.

In fact, the boy seemingly lost track of his mum Kate as he was intent on observing and interacting with the crowd.

A royal fan named Karen Anvil shared on Twitter a brief clip showing the boy running back to his family after noticing he had remained a few metres behind.

In the video, Louis carried both Ms Clark’s gnome and another gift handed him by royal fans.

Ms Clark, who travelled to Sandringham from Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, with her 72-year-old father Paul, also brought flowers for Kate.

While she had never met Prince Louis before, Ms Clark is the royal fan who received a hug from Princess Charlotte during her first-ever Christmas walkabout in 2019.

At the time, the royal fan had given the girl a pink inflatable flamingo, which clearly positively impressed the child.

Ms Clark’s royal day also included meeting King Charles – who she described as “absolutely gorgeous”.

“The King is absolutely gorgeous, I like King Charles III, I think he’s going to be an amazing King, I really do.”

Charles led a large number of royals from Sandringham House to the nearby chapel – including Prince Andrew, who has only made a few public appearances in the past three years.

A few hours after this walkabout, the royals and the country came together to watch the first-ever Christmas broadcast by the new monarch.

Recorded at St George’s Chapel on December 13, the King’s speech focused on the value of “selfless dedication”.
