Prince Louis vanishes midway through Coronation – leaving royal fans stumped

Royal Family fans watching the Coronation of King Charles III at home were confused as to where Prince Louis ended up in the procession.

The young royal did not have a role in the Coronation today but did make an appearance as a spectator of his grandfather's big day.

But the youngster was missing later in the service when Prince William and Princess Kate were featured on-screen alongside Princess Charlotte, with young Louis absent.

His absence later into the service may be due to the youngster's age, as his seat was vacated later into the procession as Prince Louis, five, was "retired", reports the Mirror.

Prince Louis' absence is just a temporary one as he re-joined the family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to cap off a service that sees King Charles and Queen Camilla officially appointed King and Queen.

The young royal had been spotted earlier in the service, sandwiched between mum Kate Middleton and older sister Princess Charlotte, donning a military garb.

He was spotted yawning twice at the ceremony and fidgeting too, with the youngster seemingly tuckered out by the viewing of his grandfather receiving the crown.

His older brother Prince George was not offered the chance to "retire" though and instead was a key member of the Coronation service, taking on a role as a Page of Honour.

Tasked with lifting the lengthy cloak of King Charles, he, along with three other members of the Royal Family reported by The Daily Star, were made Pages of Honour.

But Prince George's role in the Coronation was one of great fear for the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Prince George was made a Page of Honour alongside Nicholas Barclay, 13, Lord Oliver Cholomondeley, 13, and Ralph Tollemache, 12.
