Villains better beware, because Prince Louis’s favourite superhero has been revealed.
Speaking to locals as she visited a homelessness charity centre near Glasgow yesterday, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, revealed her youngest child, who just turned four, is a big fan of Spider-Man.
She made the revelation while speaking to local mother Joanne Wales and her son Jason, who is the same age as Louis, as she joined Prince William on a two-day whirlwind tour of Scotland, People reported.

Speaking to Joanne and Jason, Kate learned that the Glasgow boy’s favourite superhero was Spider-Man as he showed her his collection of action figures.
‘Louis, our little boy, loves Spider-Man too,’ she said.
Prince Louis is not the only one of the Cambridge children to share an affinity with spiders.
His big sister Charlotte, who turned seven last week, revealed in an exchange with Sir David Attenborough in 2020 for the Earthshot Prize that she liked spiders.

Her father Prince William revealed in 2021 that: ‘Charlotte is a massive fan of spiders and loves looking at them and learning about them, so they go on spider hunts so that she can see them up close and then let them go.’
Kate Middleton has also enjoyed sharing a glimpse into her children’s interests in the past.
In 2020, she revealed that Louis, then two, was fascinated by Mary Berry, and that one of his first words was ‘Mary,’ likely after the master baker.

Yesterday, Kate and William met Joanne Wales, 31, as she opened the front door of her new-build home to welcome Their Royal Highnesses. Inside they met son Jason, four, and heard from Joanne how the energy-efficient house design is helping reduce her energy bills.
Joanne said: ‘With four young kids then energy bills is a big concern. There’s always a need for a new pair of shoes or new clothes. I had a meeting with the energy advice team and they gave me great tips on how to use my electricity to keep my bills low.
‘I don’t need to put the heating on as much during the day in my new home. It’s made a big difference.’
The Duke and Duchess were met in Kennishead by John MacLeod, Glasgow Deputy Lieutenant, accompanied by his wife, Mariella McLeod.
They were introduced to Wheatley Group Chief Executive Martin Armstrong, Wheatley Group Chair Jo Armstrong and Bernadette Hewitt, the tenant Chair of Wheatley Homes Glasgow.
Wheatley Group Chair Jo Armstrong said: ‘We were delighted to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and show them how Wheatley Group is ‘Making Homes and Lives Better’.
‘They were very interested in the work of our Foundation, about how Wheatley is giving young people the best start in life and also how we are creating new job and training opportunities so customers can reach their full potential. We also explained how Wheatley is playing a key role across Scotland in tackling homelessness and giving people a home of their own.’
