The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge’s youngest child was pictured pulling funny faces, shushing his mum
Kate, thumbing his nose and yawning – and now a royal photographer who took
many of those pictures has opened up about the struggles of photographing him.
Chris Jackson, who has taken
many official portraits of the royal family, including the Queen, took to his
Instagram Stories to share his experience.
“I was struggling to keep
the camera still as I was chuckling whilst taking these photos, what a
character!” he said alongside a picture of Prince Louis with his arms up
cheering the Pageant acts.

He added: “Thanks to
everyone for all your comments and kind messages over the last few days – above
all thanks for following!”
Chris Jackson is married to
the Duchess of Cambridge’s fashion adviser, Natasha Archer, and they share two
children together, sons Theo, three, and Otto, who was born in December. Chris’
post came just hours after William and Kate addressed their son’s behaviour in
a cheeky Instagram post.
The photographer admitted he struggled to photograph Louis because he kept ‘chuckling’
The couple took to Instagram
on Monday to share a few behind-the-scenes pictures taken during the Jubilee
weekend and wrote: “What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Seeing
people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones
has been extremely special.
“Thank you to everyone
who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years
of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street
parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember.”
Referring to little Louis,
Prince William and Kate ended their personal message with: “We all had an
incredible time, especially Louis… [eyes emoji]. W & C.”
