The faces of little Louis and the love of mother Kate, in Westminster

Little Louis, youngest of the princes of Wales, is the favorite of the photographers who cover the Royal House. Louis, 5 years old, has not been separated from his mother for a second and has followed the solemn ceremony very quietly, but with a surprised face and open mouth. And he has left us the most tender images.

Sitting next to Louis is his sister, Charlotte, 8 years old. The little boy amused himself by looking at the laying, the superb roof of the abbey, his mother and his grandfather, who was being crowned with all the pageantry, symbology and pomposity of the moment.

It has been the most tender, simple and close anecdote among the 2,000 guests who attended the ceremony. The cameras love Louis’ little faces.
