Prince Louis is bad at social distancing and cuddles everything, says Duchess of Cambridge

While we are pretty much back to normal here in New Zealand, the UK is still getting used to more relaxed rules around COVID-19.

Their bars and restaurants have only recently opened up, meaning that social distancing is still a very real thing that needs to be practiced.

But it seems that young Prince Louis can't quite get a grip on the whole idea of keeping 2 metres difference.

In an appearance on BBC Breakfast, Kate Middleton said as much, explaining that her youngest's desire to "cuddle everything" was proving to be a real problem. "I was just saying, Louis doesn't understand social distancing," the Duchess said. "So he goes out wanting to cuddle everything, particularly any babies younger than him."

This isn't the first time Louis has proved to be a troublemaker for Kate during the pandemic. When the UK was still under strict lockdown in April, the Prince made video chatting with the extended royal family rather difficult, often hanging up in the middle of a call. "For some reason, he sees the red button and he always wants to press the red button," Prince William explained to the BBC. In the same interview, Kate admitted, "It gets a bit hectic, I am not going to lie, with a 2-year-old."
