Prince Louis was quite the chatterbox at Saturday's Trooping the Colour ceremony and his conversation with his mum, the Princess of Wales, didn't go unnoticed - thanks to a lip-reading expert. Kate made her first public appearance in months, after having been diagnosed with cancer, and the occasion was one to remember.

The Wales clan showed their unity, arriving by carriage from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade for the big event. Prince William rode on horseback whilst Kate and their kids - George, Charlotte, and Louis - watched from a balcony, where little Louis's cheeky behaviour stole the show.

He was seen both dancing and yawning throughout the parade but he seemed particularly fascinated by a beaded cord next to the window. According to lip reader Nicola Hickling, who spoke to the Mirror, Louis asked his mum: "Can I play with the beads?" to which she quickly responded, "No. I need you to concentrate on the parade."

It wasn't just Kate telling him off either, reports the Express.

His older sister Charlotte was also spotted telling him off, saying: "You have to stop doing that. Watch the parade", only for him to respond: "I won't". Determined, she added: "Do as you're told" but Louis defiantly replied: "Nope."

The six year old was caught on camera dancing to the march, while his siblings and mum watched on.

This marked the first public appearance of the Wales children since last December.

On Sunday, the royal trio made a touching Father's Day tribute to their father, Prince William, in their first ever social media post.

Sharing a new picture of the Prince Of Wales with his arms around the little ones in front of a gorgeous beach backdrop, the caption read: "We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day G, C & L".

In the family picture, the two brothers have their arms around each other as Charlotte wraps hers around William on the other side of his hip. The post is a significant one from the family, as it marks George, 10, Charlotte nine, and six-year-old Louis' first public interaction with social media.

The post was flooded with comments from fans sharing their love for the snap, as one wrote: "What a wonderful photo of you all . Happy Father’s Day Prince William . Enjoy your day with your beautiful family."

William also sent a message via Instagram to his own father, King Charles, on the holiday. William shared a throwback photo with his father from when he was a child. The snap saw Charles standing in the garden in a grey suit as he sweetly played football with a young Prince William he looked just a few years old in dungaree shorts.

Charles looked down at the small football while William ran around smiling as he spent time with his father. William sweetly captioned the post: "Happy Father’s Day, Pa. W."
