Queen Camilla made a candid confession about Prince Louis on her latest outing today.

The Queen joked her grandson Louis was “quite a handful” as she met crowds of well-wishers on a visit to the Isle of Man today, before travelling to Northern Ireland.

Camilla made the comment about Prince Louis, the youngest child of Prince William and Princess Kate, as she greeted people outside Douglas Borough Council.

This was after the Queen officially conferred city status on Douglas.

Meeting a baby in the crowd with the same name, the Queen said: “I have a Louis grandson… quite a handful”.

Shortly after visiting the Isle of Man, Camilla travelled to Northern Ireland where she was photographed arriving at Hillsborough Castle.

Earlier today, the Queen made a quick visit to the Isle on behalf of her husband King Charles, saying he was “so sorry” he could not be there himself to celebrate the “extremely special occasion”.

She thanked residents for their “warm welcome” before reading out a speech prepared by the King which acknowledged the late Queen Elizabeth II.

It read: “The granting of your city status is particularly special to me, as your Letters Patent are the only ones in existence that hold both my signature and that of my late mother.

“Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, as you mark your well-deserved status as one of the newest cities in the British Isles, and the only one of the Crown Dependencies, I would like to offer on behalf of my wife and myself, my heartfelt congratulations and my very best wishes for the future.”

Crowds gathered to meet the Queen after she unveiled a City Hall plaque, handing her bouquets.

After leaving the borough council, the Queen took an eight-minute drive to Government House in Onchan, the official residence of the Lieutenant Governor and his family, where she met with community groups including the RNLI, which was formed on the Isle of Man 200 years ago.

This is the royal residence in Northern Ireland, where Queen Elizabeth II frequented during her reign.

Camilla will undertake a series of engagements on Thursday.

The Queen was last in Northern Ireland in May 2023 when she and the King undertook a series of engagements on their first visit to the region following the Coronation.

On this occasion, she is travelling without the King, who has stepped back from his public duties while he is receiving treatment for cancer.
