Afraid he’s going to steal the show?! The Prince and Princess of Wales have not decided whether Prince Louis will attend King Charles’ coronation
The Prince of Wales and Princess of Wales were reported to be “undecided” on whether Prince Louis would attend King Charles’ coronation.
King Charles will be crowned on May 6, 2023 at Westminster Abbey, where 2,000 guests will witness the historic ceremony.
Earlier this week, the monarch confirmed that his grandson Prince George will be one of his pages of honor – along with teenage Lord Oliver Cholmondeley and the Queen’s grandchildren.
However, the Prince and Princess of Wales have not officially announced if their youngest son will also be attending.
Talking to New York Posta palace source said Prince Louis may not be watching the ceremony from inside Westminster Abbey – after his spirited outbursts during last summer’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

“It’s only four, after all,” said the insider.
According to the insider, the royal couple planned for Princess Charlotte, seven, to join them in watching the ceremony.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson told the newspaper: “The Prince and Princess of Wales will make a decision about Prince Louis’ attendance closer to that time.”
This week it was revealed that the Prince and Princess of Wales and their three children will join King Charles and Queen Camilla on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the coronation.
The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh will also appear on the balcony alongside Charles’s sister Anne and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Lawrence, to watch the RAF fly.
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent, 87, and his sister, Princess Alexandra, 86, will also attend to thank you for their loyalty to the Queen and their decades of work with the royal family.
This past June, Prince Louis delighted royal fans with his antics at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
After his animated appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the Queen, during which he was photographed covering his ears from the noise of planes in the sky, royal fans dubbed him “a little rock star.”

Days later, the youngest children of the Prince and Princess of Wales gave an equally moving performance at the Platinum Jubilee Pageant outside Buckingham Palace.
At times, he is seen clench his fists, stick out his tongue, wave his arms in the air, put his hands over his mother’s mouth and stand in his seat to get a better view of the scene.
However, the Prince and Princess of Wales made the decision not to allow Prince Louis to attend his great-grandmother’s funeral last September.
Ahead of the funeral, a source told the Daily Mail that the royal couple had discussed whether Prince George and Princess Charlotte should accompany them to the funeral.
They said: “As parents, they have thought long and hard about whether their children should accompany them.
“Of course little Louis is very young, but they think George and Charlotte are capable of it.”
