KATE Middleton revealed at Christmas that Prince Louis is a huge fan of Mary Berry – but his dedication is said to have carried on from there.
According to an insider, the two-year-old royal likes to “check up on” cookbooks of the TV star in their home and pick out what he wants to eat.

The young tot also cheers whenever he spies Mary on TV.
The source told 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.”

The source added that Prince William, 37, finds his son’s obsession “hilarious” and Mary is “delighted” that the Cambridge family are all fans of her cooking.
It was revealed that year that one of Prince Louis’ first words was “Mary” — thanks to mum Kate’s love of Great British Bake Off star Mary.
Kate, 38, said her youngest son uttered the name after spotting her cookbooks on their kitchen shelf.
The Duchess told Mary about it when she appeared on the TV special A Berry Merry Christmas, on BBC One in December.
Kate said: “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 face is all over your cooking books and he would say ‘That’s Mary Berry’.
“So he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today.”

The show saw Mary, 85, join Kate and hubby Prince William on four visits to different UK charities.
It ended with a party hosted by the couple and with a menu designed by Mary for charity staff working to support others at Christmas.
After filming, Mary described Kate on chat show Lorraine as a “normal mum” who is “just like you and I”.
The baking guru said Kate and William are a “really lovely” couple who “love each other” and want to do “all they can” for Britain.
One of the ways Kate impressed Mary was how she stays up late before her children’s birthdays to bake them cakes.
