The royal photographer “fought” to capture Prince Louis’ wild antics at the anniversary

The fight is royal.

Prince Louis acted out his antics for the camera during Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebrations last weekend.

So much so that he made it difficult for royal photographer Chris Jackson to photograph the young king during the celebrations.

The 4-year-old was quite the superstar at the celebrations to commemorate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, as he made many funny faces at various events.

Taking to his Instagram Stories, Jackson – who has been photographing the British royal family for over two decades – admitted he had a hard time photographing Louis because he was too busy cackling to get a good picture.

“I was struggling to keep the camera steady as I was giggling while taking these photos, what a character,” he wrote, per Hello! Magazine. “Thank you everyone for all your comments and kind messages over the past few days. First of all, thanks for following,” he added.

Louis’ shenanigans were a hit throughout the four-day party, starting with the June 2 flyover at Buckingham Palace, when he was seen covering his ears and making cheeky faces.

During the event, Louis’ parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, tried to calm him down and distract him from the noisy planes circling above the balcony. The 96-year-old monarch even chatted to her great-grandson and watched him go a little mad at the event.

Louis was once again the center of attention at Sunday’s parade. The tot turned it upside down for photographers as he stuck out his tongue and shook his face.

He later sat on his grandfather Prince Charles’ lap so he could try to gauge his interest in the party.

In some circles, the little prince’s whims even raise the question: is he a spoiled brat or just a normal 4-year-old?

Kaitlin Soulé, a licensed family and marriage therapist in California and author of “A Little Less of a Hot Mess: The Modern Mom’s Guide to Growth & Evolution,” told The Post that Louis’ manners were “completely normal and developmentally appropriate.” be.

“For kids his age, part of their developmental role is to push boundaries and figure out how to get on in the world. And you can’t do that without crossing borders,” she explained. “They really learn from us and mimic our behavior and I’m sure he’s been silenced many times. They really learn from our behavior.”
