Kate Middleton has revealed that the youngest royal, Prince Louis, has been asking if he will be able to still “play games” at Balmoral Castle as he struggles to understand Queen Elizabeth’s passing. The three royal children, Prince George, age nine, Princess Charlotte, age seven and Prince Louis, age four, attended their first day at a new school on the day of the Queen’s death.
David Hurley, Australia’s Governor-General, recalled that Kate spoke to him about Prince Louis on Saturday.
The Governor-General revealed that he spoke with the new Princess of Wales about how the royal Cambridge children are dealing with the Queen’s passing.
He said Prince George was “sort of now realising how important his great-grandmother was and what is going on”.
However, Prince Louis didn’t entirely understand what was going on.
Mr Hurley said that Prince Louis has been asking if his family trips to Balmoral Castle will still be the same.
He said: “The younger one is now asking questions like, ‘do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral and things like that, cause she’s not going to be there?’”
Queen Elizabeth died at Balmoral Castle on September 8 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and the Cambridge children had visited Her Majesty as part of their vacation earlier in the summer.
Balmoral was known to be a beloved place for Queen Elizabeth, and every year she would take a summer break to the Castle in July.

Prince Louis is not expected to attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral due to his age, but Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be among the 2,000 in attendance at Westminster Abbey.
The second and third in line for the throne will say goodbye to their “Gan Gan” as they called her, and will walk behind the Queen’s coffin as it is taken out of the Abbey.
Their parents, the new Prince and Princes of Wales will walk ahead of them and behind the children will be their uncle and aunt, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Buckingham Palace has said the funeral, which begins at 11am on Monday, September 19, will “pay tribute to The Queen’s remarkable reign and lifetime of service as Head of State, Nation and Commonwealth”.
