Prince William and Princess Catherine’s younger son Prince Louis might not have attended the Coronation Concert on Sunday night, but he was more than prepared for an exciting day with the Scouts on Monday morning.
For his first-ever royal engagement, five-year-old Louis wore a striped polo shirt, shorts, and a hat. During one of the adorable exchanges with his mother Catherine, Louis’ adorable nickname was also made known.
The touching moment happened as the Prince and Princess of Wales, along with their three children, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, visited the 3rd Upton Scout Group in Slough.
Princess Catherine once toasted marshmallows over an open flame with some kids, among her own. The royal mother-of-three could be heard encouraging Prince Louis as she handed him a stick to toss while also saying, “Pop that in the fire, Lou Bug.”
The Princess of Wales then displayed her hands-on parenting skills by gently reminding the young Prince, “What do you say?” as a member of the group handed Lou Bug his very own s’more to eat. He timidly smiled and said, “Thank you.”
Louis’ hilarious response after consuming the sweet treat proved that the sticky s’more was a hit!
In order to participate in the Big Help Out, Princess Catherine and her family joined the Scouts and other volunteers. Princess Catherine is a co-president of the Scout Association.
The family worked on sanding, painting, and resetting a path in addition to helping with the Scout Hut renovation. Prince Louis even got to sit on his father Prince William’s lap while he operated an excavator.
George, Charlotte, and Louis participated in a variety of activities, such as finger painting and archery, and seemed ecstatic to have the opportunity to spend the day as Scouts.
Louis was even questioned by a volunteer who said, “You might want to be a painter when you grow up?” The young prince answered, “No, a fighter pilot.”
The volunteer exclaimed, “Just like your father and grandfather!”
According to scoutmaster Simon Carter, “Prince Louis was very excited. At the conclusion, they were each given a Big Help Out badge, and as a result, each received a Scouts scarf. He was the one who stole the wheelbarrow and fled. He was the one digging in the sand, working hard, and taking action.
