Prince Louis Wore Prince Harry's Royal Hand-Me-Downs at Trooping the Colour

Meghan Markle may have made her grand reappearance over the weekend at Trooping the Colour, but Prince Louis was the star of the show. 

After five weeks of maternity leave following baby Archie's arrival, Markle appeared in public for the first time on Saturday, June 8, for the annual celebration of the queen's birthday. While she did wear a bespoke navy dress by Givenchy with a cape jacket, it was Prince Louis's adorable blue-and-white outfit that was the sartorial heavyweight of the day.

In fact, it was the exact same getup that 1-year-old Harry wore to his second-ever Trooping the Colour when he was held by Princess Anne for the balcony group photo. (Plus, check out those twinning vibes between Kate Middleton and Princess Anne!)

Prince Louis, who is also 1, looked like the Duke of Sussex's spitting image in the new photos. And perhaps it's a sign of solidarity between the two major royal couples, the Sussexes and the Cambridges, to lay to rest all the gossip surrounding a Fab Four falling out. See ya, feud rumors.

Prince Louis also practiced his royal wave à la his sister, Princess Charlotte. Her signature move—a full elbow-wave—has become somewhat of a staple for the little royal during her public appearances.


Louis was obviously taking notes during all those family outings, because he copied his big sister as he vigorously waved to the fighter jets that flew overhead during the parade. Yasss, Louis! You're doing amazing, sweetie.

Charlotte, not to be outdone, solidified her place as the original Cambridge Waver and followed suit.

Whether it was the heat, the sibling waving competition, or, ya know, just the fact that he's only 1, after about a few minutes of the balcony, Louis had had enough of his royal duties (as evidenced by this pouty shot of the little prince).

Yep, that's a Monday #mood if we've ever seen one.
