Justin Trudeau's Youngest Son Hadrien Didn't Care Much About Indian Protocol
Last week, the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, paid a week-long visit to India. The week started with his arrival to India on February 17. He was accompanied by his wife, Sophie Grégoire and three children, Xavier James, Ella-Grace Margaret, and Hadrien Grégoire.
The trip was an official mission to solidify ties between the two countries, especially in the areas of defense and security, counter-terror cooperation, trade and investment, as well as climate change.
Hadrien Grégoire had his own agenda
While the prime minister was more concerned about matters of state, his youngest son Hadrien Grégoire had his own plans for the trip. For starters, the 3-year-old didn’t seem to understand much of what his father was up to. So, this was just another fun vacation.

Hadrien did not seem particularly happy when being introduced to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but he later warmed up as the visit progressed.
The family paid a visit to the Sabarmati Ashram. Gandhi is said to have lived there for about 12 years. By now, little Hadrien was in his element and never missed a photo op.
Later on, the family visited the Taj Mahal, and Hadrien even got a fun air-ride from his father.
It seems Hadrien only needed some time to get familiar with his environment. Soon, he was blending in with the rest of the family.
In the end, it was a thrilling experience for the Trudeaus. And we expect Hadrien to take back some very fond memories of India with him back home.
Too much Indian in India
While Justin Trudeau enjoys massive support at home, his recent trip to India may have put a massive dent in his followership. Many Canadians have criticized the Prime Minister for the multiple wardrobe changes the family went through in India.
Ayeshea Perera from BBC said the trip “appears to be a series of photo ops cunningly designed to showcase his family’s elaborate traditional wardrobe.” Even Indian magazine Outlook called the family’s outfits, “too Indian even for an Indian.”
This is one time that the prime minister may want to rethink his political and style strategies.
