Prince Louis makes up for coronation concert absence as he delights fans on scout duty

Prince Louis makes up for coronation concert absence as he delights fans on scout duty

The young royal delighted fans with his behaviour at the coronation

Some fans of the royal family were sad to see Prince Louis missing from the royal box during the coronation concert, but the youngster came back with a bang today as he took on some scout duties.

People watching the Coronation of King Charles III on Saturday (6 May) couldn't get enough of Louis' antics throughout the long day, when the five-year-old kept himself entertained by waving to crowds and pulling faces from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

His actions gained a lot of attention online, so naturally fans couldn't wait to see how he'd behave at the huge music gig that took place at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

Unfortunately, however, Louis was nowhere to be seen during the events, with the 8pm start time likely too late for the youngster.

It's now emerged that Louis had to get his rest in ahead of a big day today, when he joined his parents and siblings at a local Scouts headquarters in Slough, as part of the Big Help Out initiative running across the UK.

Snaps from the day showed Louis getting stuck in to the action as he and his family helped to renovate some Scout huts, with one showing him pushing a wheelbarrow full of dirt with the help of his mum, Kate Middleton.

He took great care in filling a wheelbarrow with more dirt using a little shovel, but the young royal was also able to take advantage of some more serious machinery, as he climbed on to his dad's lap to give him a hand with navigating a digger around the work site.

The young royal took a quick break to enjoy some toasted marshmallows over a fire, and also joined his sister, Charlotte, in having a go at some archery.

His hard work definitely made up for his absence at last night's concert, with one delighted Twitter user writing: "I love seeing the kids involved - especially Louis. He always makes me laugh."

Another commented: "Prince Louis is too cute today helping out at the Scouts as part of the #BigHelpOut."

Big Help Out encourages people from across the country to use the extra bank holiday granted for the King's Coronation to help out on local projects, such as beach cleaning.

A total of 30,000 organisations are taking part in the initiative with 55,000 events across the UK, as Buckingham Palace says it wants to create 'a lasting volunteering legacy'.
