LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: As Queen Elizabeth II's funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, saw the presence of the entire Royal family, prominent world leaders and thousands of mourners, Prince Louis was not in attendance. Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest child, 4, gave the ceremony a miss as he is too young. It was also explained by Middleton that the tiny tot was struggling to understand the Queen’s death.

The internet, however, couldn't overlook the absence of Prince Louis, who stole the show with his adorable antics at Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee celebration in July 2022. During the golden procession, Prince Louis was spotted on the balcony of Buckingham Palace screaming and covering his ears as planes flew over their royal palace. Given his past history, many Twitter users wonder if Prince Louis was forced to miss Elizabeth's funeral due to his mischievous behavior during the four-day ceremonies over the summer.

What happens after the Queen's funeral? Here are the protocols to be followed by the Royal family


One tweet stated, "Prince Louis seeing his entire family on iPlayer and wondering why they were getting suited and booted this morning whilst he was still in his pyjamas eating Rice Krispies #queensfuneral" while another missing Prince Louis wrote, "Prince Louis sitting at home watching the funeral knowing he's the only one in the family with personality. #queensfuneral."



Another user believes the real reason behind Prince Louis' absence is his "high chance of chaos". "People thinking Prince Louis isn’t there because he's too young. The real reason: High chance of chaos #queensfuneral" while another responded, "Would have been interesting to watch his reactions! He'd have been up and down those steps multiple of times and ending up sitting on Charles lap!"


One individual wrote, "Prince Louis would’ve added some entertainment to the funeral." Another said, "Prince Louis when he is told to not destroy the palace while the family was at The Queen's funeral."



Prince Louis' older siblings, Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, attended their grandmother's procession at Westminster Abbey walking alongside their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales. 


The Queen was put to rest on Bank Holiday Monday, September 19 after spending four days in state at Westminster Hall. David Hoyle, the Dean of Westminster, officiated over the service and various hymns were chanted, including 'The Lord's My Shepherd, I'll Not Want', which was previously sung at the wedding of the Queen to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947. 


The Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Moderator of the Free Churches, and the Archbishop of York all read prayers. The service was concluded with the customary lament 'Sleep, Dearie, Sleep' played by the Queen's Piper, Paul Burns. The Queen's coffin was escorted in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch and finally to Windsor Castle where she was laid to rest, following the conclusion of the service.
