Happy Friday! It's grey and miserable out there today (or at least it is where I'm writing this from), so what could be better than an extremely wholesome news story about Prince Louis, the youngest child of Kate Middleton and Prince William, and another royal in her own right: Mary Berry, Queen of Baking?
You may or may not already know this, but little Prince Louis (who turned two during lockdown and celebrated with a messy painting session) is a long-term fan of the woman who launched a thousand cakes. So much so, that apparently some of his first words were even inspired by her.
While chatting away to the former GBBO judge during a A Berry Royal Christmas, Kate shared that, "One of Louis' first words was 'Mary' because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen bookshelf... And children are really fascinated by faces, and your faces are all over your cooking books and he would say 'That's Mary Berry'... so he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today."
Now, a source reportedly close to the family has shared another adorable anecdote on Louis' obsession with Mary, saying that the tot's love is still burning bright and that he cheers whenever she's on TV.
Talking to Fabulous, said source claimed, “Whenever he sees Mary on the television, he whoops and claps his hands.”
Oh, and there's more! Apparently the little one also enjoys nothing more than checking up on Mary's books and pointing at the pictures of his favourite cakes (same, tbh). "[He] likes nothing better than to check on the Mary Berry cookbooks... He loves the pictures, points out all the things he wants to eat, with The Very Chocolate Cake, Plum Crumble seeming to be hot favourites, and fruit scones being a must."
Naturally, it's thought that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge find the whole thing "hilarious". Again, same tbh.
Maybe when Louis gets a few more words under his hat he too could become a Bake Off judge? Just a thought...
