Prince Louis, like any other youngster his age, has struggled to comprehend the significance of his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s passing away.

The Queen passed away on September 8, 2018, at the age of 96, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. After the death of Louis’ grandmother, Kate Middleton, who was Louis’ mother, had a chat with the Governor-General of Australia, David Hurley, shortly after her passing, the new Princess of Wales revealed a particularly devastating question that her youngest child had asked.

According to a broadcast from Channel 9, Hurley was quoted as saying, “The elder one is kind of now comprehending how significant his great-grandmother was and what is going on.” “The younger of the two is now asking questions such as, ‘Do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral and things like that, since she’s not going to be there?'”

On Monday, the state funeral for the Queen was held at Westminster Abbey, and it was immediately followed by a procession to Windsor Castle.

Along with their parents, Princess Catherine and Prince William, Louis’ elder siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, all aged 9, and Princess Charlotte, aged 7, also attended the ceremony. However, the four-year-old child was not there, most likely because of the melancholy day that lay ahead.

Attending the funeral of the Queen in Westminster Abbey with her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, is Kate Middleton.

PEOPLE has learnt that the long-term couple spent the previous week giving great consideration to the question of whether or not to include their two oldest children in the procession and ceremony. In spite of this, both George and Charlotte attended the memorial ceremony for Prince Philip held at Westminster Abbey in March.

Prince William’s brother, Prince Harry, and Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, did not bring their young children with them to the parade. Their son Archie Harrison, who is three years old, and their daughter Lilibet Diana, who is one, were not there.

Her son, King Charles III, who is now 73 years old, has taken over as king upon the loss of the Queen. It is anticipated that he will be crowned sometime throughout the course of the next year.

Just days after the late monarch’s death, Charles and wife Camilla, Queen Consort, assumed the throne for the first time in Westminster Hall in London. Speaking to members of the legislative body and members of the House of Lords at the time, the new King said: “I cannot help but feel the weight of history, which surrounds us.”

“When she was very young, her Majesty vowed herself to serve her country and her people and to protect the priceless ideals of constitutional governance which lay at the heart of our nation,” he said. “This is a promise that she kept throughout her life.” “She upheld her pledge with a level of dedication that cannot be matched.”

Charles continued by saying, “She established a precedent of selfless service, which, with God’s assistance and your advice, I am committed to faithfully follow.”
