Prince Louis Steals the Show on the Buckingham Palace Balcony
Following the royal family's carriage debut at Trooping the Colour, they all appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony to celebrate Her Majesty's historic 70 years on the throne. Per usual, the queen stood alongside senior members of the royal family, including Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The royal siblings, who were dressed to impress in their color-coordinated blue attire, waved enthusiastically to the crowds. But Louis made quite an impression with his meme-worthy reactions.
As the kids watched a special flypast by the Royal Air Force, Louis couldn't help but cover his ears and make funny faces because of the loud noise.
And not surprisingly, Middleton went into full parenting mode as she bent down to talk to Louis, who continued to showcase his comedic genius with chuckle-worthy expressions. But his reactions weren't the only thing that caught everyone's attention...
While on the balcony, the 4-year-old also had a few friendly exchanges with his great grandmother, who gave the biggest smile as they shared these heartwarming moments.
This appearance marks Prince Louis's second time appearing on the balcony, after making his debut with his family back in 2019. At the time, he was just a year old, but he showed the most enthusiasm as he waved and watched the flyover, even making his parents giggle.
Meanwhile, George made his debut back in 2015, while Charlotte appeared for the first time in 2016, so it comes as no surprise that the two are officially pros by now.
Traditionally, the balcony includes extended royal family members, but this year, the group is noticeably smaller—thanks in part to the absence of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their two children. Still, it looks like this Platinum Jubilee is off to a very good start.
