how little Louis, 4, stole the spotlight from his great-grandmother


Hard hard to be an heir. In the aftermath of the military parade that marked the first day of the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, Celebrating its 70th anniversary, the British press is unanimous on Friday 3 June: Prince Louis, 4, “stole the star” to the 96-year-old sovereign.
