Prince Louis Can’t Stop Breaking This One Rule, According to Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton just shared details about how her youngest son, Prince Louis, is handling self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic, and we’d do anything to give the young royal a big ol’ hug.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, appeared on today’s episode of BBC Breakfast to promote an all-new education initiative, Tiny Happy People. During the interview, Middleton discussed her three children—Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2)—and revealed that Louis is struggling to understand the concept of social distancing, particularly when it comes to interacting with babies.

“Louis doesn’t understand social distancing,” she said, according to People magazine. “He goes out wanting to cuddle anything, particularly any babies younger than him.” Sounds like he could use a younger sibling. (*Hint, hint*)

Middleton also joked that her children’s appetites have increased since the lockdown began and, uh, same. “My children have bottomless pits,” she explained. “I feel like a constant feeding machine.”

Middleton’s appearance was in honor of Tiny Happy People, which aims to bridge the language gap among kids in the U.K. (Studies show that a quarter of British children are behind on literary development when they start school at age 5.)

As for Prince Louis’s reaction to social distancing, all we have to say is…same.
