Judi explained: “It always seemed to be the underlying shyness that made the older siblings more reserved in public, but for Louis, there seems to be less of a filter when it comes to acting like a happy, playful and spontaneous four-year-old.
“He looks less keen to stay close to his parents when there are other friends around. He walked off ahead to get next to Camilla after the church service, grinning up at her as though expecting her full attention, and he is open about sharing his feelings via his body language, unlike George and Charlotte who are now old enough to understand the need for masking and etiquette.”
Kate was the parent-in-charge of Louis this Christmas at Sandringham and her body language suggested she was combining “some proactive behaviour with a desire to see her son feeling as free to enjoy himself as possible on this exciting day”.
The Princess’ grip on Louis’s hand looked firm enough to allow her to keep him close, although he arrived with enough scope to walk behind his family and enjoy the excitement of the crowds, Judi explained.
