Prince Louis stole the show at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations yesterday (2 June), which began with the Trooping of the Colour in central London.

During the carriage procession he was spotted being restrained by big sister Princess Charlotte as he continued to clap enthusiastically when she and Prince George had stopped. He was then photographed enjoying a private conversation with the Queen on the balcony.

The four-year-old prince could be seen giving Her Majesty his full attention as they spoke on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the monarch's Birthday Parade. Kate, looking elegant in a white Alexander McQueen coat dress and a Philip Treacy hat, could be seen smiling on proudly.

Louis was also pictured pulling a funny face and then covering his ears during the special RAF flypast. It recalled the time bridesmaid Grace Van Cutsem famously shielded her ears as on the same balcony as the crowds cheered at Kate and William's 2011 wedding.

Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Louis made their carriage procession debut as they headed up the parade with Kate and Camilla on Horse Guards Parade.

The royals waved to spectators before joining the Queen on the balcony for her royal salute.

Joining the 96-year-old monarch and little Louis were Charles and Camilla; Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex; Princess Anne; the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester; Princess Alexandra; and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

The Wessexes' children Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, were also in attendance. Prince Harry and Meghan were joined by other royals at the Duke of Wellington's former office to watch the proceedings from inside.
