As King Charles III and Queen Camilla debuted their new hats after the coronation, a certain five-year-old prince ended up stealing the show.
During the 10 minutes Charles and Camilla offered a wave or two to the hundreds gathered outside Buckingham Palace, they were joined by their fellow royals.
Among them included Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.
But as much as the balcony wave capped off a historic moment, standing and waving isn’t exactly a five-year-old’s idea of a good Saturday afternoon.
Instead, Louis spent most of the proceedings looking slightly bored and did what he could to kill time.
Broadcasters captured the youngster banging on the edge of the balcony and waving his hands, even pretending the play the piano and the guitar.
He, at one point, clapped as his family waved and had a rather, well, unique way of doing it; Louis’ grandfather didn’t wave in the same way, though.
Julian Druker, a Channel 5 News correspondent, tweeted: ‘Prince Louis appears to be getting slightly bored with all this.’

A British meme page, Casual UK, said: ‘Prince Louis’ waving style known as “the windscreen wipers”.’
Another user added: ‘I’m only here for Prince Louis’ expressions.’
As they watched the flypast – a slightly scaled-back affair due to the rain – the young royal stuck his tongue out, screamed and pointed skywards.
This came after he was spotted yawning as he and the rest of his family walked into the abbey to see Charles hold two golden sceptres and wear the glittering St Edward’s Crown.
‘The “give me strength” of it all from Louis,’ said one user, sharing a photo of Louis staring at the ceiling.
‘Prince Louis,’ another user said, ‘Meme King.’
