Royal Photographer Admits He ‘Struggled’ Trying to Take Pictures of Rowdy Prince Louis

<p>Royal fans got quite a treat in June 2022 during <a href="https://ift.tt/Hpba8SX Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee</a>. In addition to all the public festivities that were held to celebrate the monarch’s incredible 70 years on the throne, one of her great-grandsons showed off his big personality. </p> <p><a href="https://ift.tt/a2khGfu Louis</a> nearly stole the show from the moment he stepped onto the <a href="https://ift.tt/ZrKy8jL Palace</a> balcony with his family by making <a href="https://ift.tt/38WDyCm faces and covering his ears</a> during a flyover. Following the Trooping the Colour parade, Louis was a little superstar during the Platinum Pageant too. But at least one royal photographer “struggled” to get pictures of him. </p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="809" src="https://ift.tt/whIYr8U" alt="Prince Louis, who a royal photographer "struggled" to get a picture of, perked up with his arms out next to mom, Kate Middleton, at the Platinum Pageant" class="wp-image-3134590" srcset="https://ift.tt/whIYr8U 1200w, https://ift.tt/ImZuRxg 150w, https://ift.tt/NqVPpRO 640w, https://ift.tt/caUB6Op 768w, https://ift.tt/6OKBj3z 1024w, https://ift.tt/scgbAGQ 89w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Prince Louis perked up with his arms out next to mom, Kate Middleton, at the Platinum Pageant | Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <h2 id="h-photographer-says-you-never-know-what-to-expect-when-taking-pics-of-royal-children">Photographer says ‘you never know what to expect’ when taking pics of royal children</h2> <p>Chris Jackson is a Getty Images royal photographer who has covered numerous royal weddings, births, christenings, and royal tours. He’s also an author and has won several awards including Royal Photographer of the Year in 2010, 2015, and 2016. </p> <p>Jackson says he never knows what to expect when taking pictures of the youngest royals. </p> <p>He previously told <a href="https://ift.tt/wz6HEQP" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Us Weekly</a>: “I just love that you never know what to expect with the sort of younger members of the royal family and that’s what makes it fun. I suppose that translates for a lot of what I do because you don’t control what’s going on in front of you. And so you have to learn to expect the unexpected and [keep] on [your] toes and that adds an element of luck and the element of, you know, some days you get the photo [and] some days you don’t.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="918" src="https://ift.tt/FvKTHpg" alt="Prince Louis making a face while holding onto his mom during the Platinum Pageant" class="wp-image-3134524" srcset="https://ift.tt/FvKTHpg 1200w, https://ift.tt/Mv7PpNk 640w, https://ift.tt/bWZlxVn 768w, https://ift.tt/bwJ3GlF 1024w, https://ift.tt/ZsK8OF1 435w, https://ift.tt/0ctS5zU 260w, https://ift.tt/EfhdM7Y 280w, https://ift.tt/t7jlieP 78w, https://ift.tt/aTvj3QF 150w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Prince Louis making a face while holding onto Kate Middleton during the Platinum Pageant | Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <h2>Getting photos of rowdy Prince Louis wasn’t easy</h2> <p>Jackson, who is married to Kate Middleton’s fashion adviser Natasha Arche and has three children of his own, explained why it wasn’t easy getting shots of rambunctious Prince Louis during the Platinum Pageant. </p> <p>The photographer took to his Instagram Stories and admitted that he had a difficult time shooting Louis because he was laughing so hard at the prince’s antics.</p> <p>“I was struggling to keep the camera still as I was chuckling whilst taking these photos, what a character,” Jackson wrote per <a href="https://ift.tt/W7o8rJH" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Hello! Magazine</a>. </p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="759" src="https://ift.tt/4Ztc1JL" alt="Kate Middleton laughing with her youngest son Prince Louis during the Platinum Pageant" class="wp-image-3134497" srcset="https://ift.tt/4Ztc1JL 1200w, https://ift.tt/JtNB5Kr 640w, https://ift.tt/hxTzQ3J 768w, https://ift.tt/oJ8cysM 1024w, https://ift.tt/tJbxfgS 95w, https://ift.tt/T2NLbWe 150w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Kate Middleton laughing with her youngest son, Prince Louis, during the Platinum Pageant | Chris Jackson – WPA Pool/Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <h2>Was Prince Louis being bratty or just acting his age?</h2> <p>When the Jubilee events concluded, Prince William and Kate Middleton posted a thank you message to everyone who came together to celebrate the milestone writing: “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis” with an eyes emoji. This led some to question if the youngest Cambridge child was being bratty or just acting like any 4-year-old kid. </p> <p>According to family and marriage therapist Kaitlin Soulé, it’s the latter. She told the <a href="https://ift.tt/UkAYwWO" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">New York Post</a> that the way Louis acted was “completely normal and developmentally appropriate” for someone his age.</p> <p>“With children around his age, part of their developmental task is to push boundaries and figure out how to be in the world. And they can’t do that without pushing boundaries,” Soulé explained. “They are really learning from us and they are mimicking our behavior, and I am sure he’s been shushed plenty of times. They truly learn from our behavior.”</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://ift.tt/NhPJap1 Shows Moment Princess Charlotte Got Tired of Prince Louis Acting Up</a></strong></p>
