Why Prince Louis Isn't At the Coronation Concert

Why Prince Louis Isn't At the Coronation Concert

It's been a big weekend for the royal family as they celebrate the crowning of King Charles III, and while some of the royals are keeping the celebrations going tonight at a star-studded coronation concert, at least one young royal is taking the evening off. Prince Louis, the youngest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, was not in attendance tonight when his parents and two older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, took their seats at the concert alongside other members of the royal family.

While he was among the well-wishers at his grandfather King Charles's coronation yesterday at Westminster—and characteristically stole the show—the youngest of the Wales kids skipped out on the Sunday evening concert.

Considering that Louis just turned five in April, the nighttime event was likely simply deemed too late for his young disposition. Though fans who enjoy Louis's ever-entertaining antics will surely be disappointed, it's not entirely a departure for the Waleses. Just last year, George and Charlotte made a surprise appearance at the Platinum Jubilee concert, celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's 70th year on the throne, but young Louis was absent then as well.

Held on the ground of Windsor Castle, the concert is set to feature performances by the likes of Katy Perry and Lionel Richie—both of whom were in attendance at the coronation yesterday—as well as Nicole Scherzinger, Tiwa Savage, and more. The BBC will broadcast the concert live, on BBC News and BBC.com. In the U.S., the concert will be broadcast on PBS from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. eastern time.
