The press is abuzz with discussion that little Prince Louis may repeat the fate of his uncle, Prince Harry. Both members of the British royal family are the younger brothers of future rulers, who used to be called "replacement heirs". The controversy erupted amid two public appearances by the Cambridges, during which Prince Louis made faces and showed his character relentlessly.

It all began with a display of all shades of the young prince's suffering on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on the first day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Then the Cambridges attended the events without their youngest son. Well, on the last day of festivities, four-year-old Louis nearly drove his mother to despair by refusing to be quiet and just misbehaving during the royal show in central London.

At one time, Prince Harry was also considered more naughty and carefree than his older brother and cousins. In the 1980s, the youngest son of the Welsh was photographed making faces or sticking out his tongue at official events. Princess Diana seemed to encourage her son. She once told Harry that he could be naughty as long as he was "careful".

In the documentary "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy", on the 20th anniversary of her death in Wales, the Duke of Sussex told viewers: "Our mother was an absolute child to the core... One of her mottos to me was, 'You can be as naughty as you want, just don't get caught."

Royal expert Robert Jobson shared the story of royal security officer Ken Whorf, who worked with Princess Diana in the 1980s and 1990s. In his book "William at 40: Becoming a Modern Monarch", the royal author wrote: "The brothers, who were just eight and six years old, were arguing in the back seat when Harry suddenly blurted out: 'You're going to be king. I won't - so I can do what I want!" Mr. Wharf later added: "The princess and I just looked at each other, a little shocked at what he said."

Today, royal admirers fear that Prince Louis may have the same thoughts. The Windsors know many cases when the eldest heir did not become king, and his place on the throne was taken by the ruler's second son. However, the probability of such an outcome is rather low.
