Little Prince Louis is said to have developed a soft spot for Ms Berry and to be particularly cheerful whenever he is near one of her books or she appears on TV. The two-year-old points at what he would like to eat on the tv personality’s books and even cheers whenever Ms Berry appears on his screen, according to an insider.
The source told The Sun’s Fabulous: “Prince Louis likes nothing better than to check on 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.
“Whenever he sees Mary on the television, he whoops and claps his hands.”
Prince Louis’s love for Ms Berry is considered “hilarious” by his father Prince William.
Kate, Duchess of Duchess, had previously confessed to Ms Berry herself she had played quite a big role in shaping Prince Louis’s early vocabulary.
During the BBC Christmas special A Very Berry Christmas, Kate told the former Bake Off chef she had inspired one of Prince Louis’s earliest words.
In the hour-long TV special, which saw Prince William and Kate showing Ms Berry how they carry out royal work before competing in the kitchen, the Duchess revealed the toddler was at the time “fascinated by faces” and would say “that’s Mary Berry” whenever he saw her face on the spine of one of her cookbooks.

Kate added: “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.”
During the TV special, Kate also revealed she often cooks with her children – and one of their favourite recipes is Ms Berry’s pizza.
Asked whether she cooks with her children, Kate said: “Yes, I really enjoy it.
“Again, for them to be creative, for them to try and be as independent as possible with it.”
More recently, Prince William revealed he has spent quite a lot of time during lockdown baking with his family.
During his first face-to-face royal engagement in months, Prince William joked saying: “I’m worried about the waistline of the nation as well with all the chocolate and cakes.
“I’ve done a lot of baking at home.
“Chocolate goes down very well.”
Kate had already exposed her husband’s love for chocolate ahead of Easter, when the Cambridges took part in a video call with teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication.
Speaking of the approaching holiday, the Duke said: “There will be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don’t worry!”
Kate, laughing, replied: “You keep eating it!”
