Prince William and Kate could stop Louis being 'offshoot like Harry' with this Coronation move

A royal expert claims that news all three of Prince William’s children will be at the King’s Coronation could help stop another “offshoot like Harry” forming in the family any time soon.

Angela Mollard reckons the move will make inroads to any effort to stop another royal feeling like they are a “spare”min the future and that Prince Louis, the youngest of William and Kate Middleton’s kids, never feels left out.

In plans that have been leaked to The Times ahead of the ceremony, George, Charlotte, and Louis are set to join their grandfather King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla as they leave Westminster Abbey on May 6.

Mollard said she believes that by giving Louis a memory of the ceremony, his bond with the monarchy will be strengthened and will ensure he shows up later in life to help his brother when he is king.

The Daily Express reported Ms Mollard said: "George needs to be braced and supported by his siblings.

"The whole brand of the Waleses is very much, 'we're a family, we do it all together. We do not want an offshoot like Harry in the future'."

Some royal fans have questioned whether or not the young prince is too young to attend the event, which will have a 2,000-strong crowd.

Speaking to Sky Australia's The Royal Report, Ms Mollard added: "Some people might say four-year-old Louis was so funny, he's the cutest - it's like, do you make that decision to take your kids to a posh restaurant?

"Yes, you do, because it's going to be funny but more than that.

"It's going to make sure that Louis has a memory of the Coronation so when his big brother takes on that role, he and Charlotte are there to support him.”

Louis, who turns five just before the coronation, made his official public debut during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations where he captured the attention of millions of royal watchers with his adorable antics.

Kensington Palace is yet to officially confirm all three children will be at the coronation, but documents show that after leaving the abbey, they are expected to join their parents in a carriage behind a Gold State Coach transporting the King and Queen.
