He may only be five years old but Prince Louis appears to already have future career plans inspired by his dad and grandad.
The youngster revealed them today as he carried out his first-ever royal engagement by getting down to work on a day of volunteering to celebrate his grandfather King Charles’ Coronation.
He joined his parents the Prince and Princess of Wales as well as his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte in renovating a Scouts Hut in Slough.
In Louis’ first task of the day, he joined older sister Charlotte to help to paint a planter while George joined his father with some drilling.
The two youngest children knelt down, grabbing brushes dripping with white masonry paint, obvious to the fact that they were getting it on their hair and bare legs.
One followed volunteer asked Louis: “You might want to be a painter when you grow up?”
“No a fighter pilot,” he responded.
“Just like your father and grandfather!” the lady replied.
Elsewhere, Louis, wearing his trademark shorts, sat in his father’s lap as William operated a digger and moved the mechanical arm to grab a bucket full of soil before dumping it on a spoil heap.
It came after seeing big brother, George, nine, have a go and telling his mother: “I want to go in with him!”
After completing their tasks and trying his hand at archery, Louis excitedly high-fived a group of other children as he did. The children were each given a wooden stick with sweet treats on it and held them over a brazier.
His eyes lit up when he was handed a ‘smore’ – a marshmallow with chocolate sandwiched been two biscuits. “What do you say?” encouraged mum Kate.
“You’ve made his day!” interjected William. “We won’t hear a peep out of him.”
Louis staggered about jokingly and rolled his head in delight, knocking into his sister. The family then spent some time away from the media chatting with volunteers before a low-key departure.
The family were also insistent that the children get “properly stuck in” and lend a hand – which they certainly did.
