This heartwarming new video shows how Prince Louis ran after Princess Charlotte and handed her a bouquet of flowers on Christmas Day.
The Prince and Princess of Wales’ youngest child, aged four, joined his family for the annual Christmas church service at St Mary Magdalene church.
Ahead of the service, the Wales family greeted well-wishers lining the route to the church – which is where Prince Louis was handed a small bouquet of blue-and-white flowers .
In a clip posted on Twitter, the four-year-old is seen running after Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte along the path to the church.

Prince Louis was a hit with crowds of well-wishers at Sandringham yesterday
Earlier today, royal fan Callan Tavernern shared footage of the moment Prince Louis shared a Paddington bear drawing with his mother and a child she was speaking with.
The video shows Prince Louis asking Lt. Colonel Johnny Thompson – who had accepted the drawing on his behalf – if he could take a closer look.
Clearly impressed with the illustration, the youngster walked up to the Princess of Wales – who was busy speaking with a young well-wisher.
Taking the drawing from Louis, she then crouches down to show a young girl the Paddington bear picture in closer detail.
In the background, crowds of well-wishers can be heard saying: ‘Merry Christmas Louis!’
Having captured the sweet interaction on camera, the royal fan captioned the clip on Twitter: ‘Moment Prince Louis receives a Paddington Bear picture from Lt. Colonel Johnny Thompson and hands it over to his mummy.’
‘So cute,’ one fan replied.

‘You can tell Kate is a naturally attentive,’ another gushed. ‘The way she acknowledged Louis while still engaging with the individual is textbook.’
Meanwhile, a third said: ‘Did he give it her to give to that little girl.’
Paddington became a totem for the Queen in the months following her death because one of her last public appearances was in the delightful sketch she filmed with him for her Platinum Jubilee.
As the royals walked into the church, a sweet moment of brotherly love was captured on camera as Prince George reached out to guide his youngest brother, who has taken part in his first ever Christmas Day walkabout.
But Louis proved he is a natural as he flashed a sweet smile to the camera while walking into the church.
The mischievous young prince also picked up a feathered Santa toy from a well-wisher, which he carried with him while his mother spoke to a young girl who had come out to say hello.

While they are much older than him, it was only the second time that Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, have attended due to the cancellations of 2020 and 2021 at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As Prince Louis looked adorable in a black coat and a pair of shorts (traditional for young royal boys until the age of eight), his older sister Charlotte wore the same burgundy coat she appeared in at the Together at Christmas carol service broadcast on ITV1 on Christmas Eve.
During the service at Westminster Abbey, which had been organised by her mother Kate, Charlotte was front and centre, giggling at the Dean of Westminster’s anecdote about his cat’s fondness for tinsel and lighting up as Hugh Bonneville read an extract from Paddington Bear in tribute to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
While greeting royal fans on the Sandringham estate, the Princess of Wales told one well-wisher that her children ‘got lots of lovely things’ this year but had ‘quite an early start’.

As the Royal Family joined King Charles on his walkabout outside Sandringham church, Kate was spotted talking with a young girl about her day so far.
The young fan, named India, was filmed giving the Princess a bouquet of flowers, which she was thanked for.
Kate went on to ask India: ‘Have you had a nice morning?’
India replied: ‘Yes, have you?’
Kate then said: ‘I’ve had a lovely morning – thank you very much – I had quite an early start this morning.’
George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, joined their family on the walkabout
Another member of the public is heard jumping into the conversation to ask: ‘Did the children get lots of nice things?’
The Princess then said ‘they got lots of lovely things’, before walking on.
It was also claimed that Prince William commented on the children’s presents when talking with the fans today.
Hilary Marsh, 71, from Suffolk said: ‘I asked William if Father Christmas had been for the children and he smiled back and said, “They’ve had enough presents”.’
William and Kate’s three children were also at the walkabout and spoke with well-wishers from members of the public after their traditional Christmas Day church service on the Norfolk estate.
George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis , four, also received some presents from those waiting outside on Christmas.
Gemma Clark, 42, from Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, gave each child a novelty toy called a gonk – a festive gnome with a pointed hat. She also gave flowers to Kate.
