The youngest son of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William melted hearts during his recent appearance on the balcony of the Queen’s residence in London. The adorable four-year-old stood between the Queen and his mother Kate during the firing of an 82-gun salute and the RAF flypast.

This spectacle showed 70 aircraft flying over the Palace, with 15 of them paying tribute to the Queen’s historic reign by forming the number 70 in the air.

While his elder siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte appeared composed during the show and smiled and waved to the crowds, Prince Louis expressed his emotions in a way that left some royal fans in awe.

The four-year-old was pictured covering his ears during the flypast as well as putting his hands on his eyes.

He also playfully pulled a face by placing two fingers in his mouth.

After seeing the tot’s reaction to the flypast, one royal fan, Twitter user, hailed Prince Louis saying: “My emotive king”.

Another, journalist Elly Blake, tweeted: “Prince Louis on Buckingham Palace balcony is a mood”.

A third Twitter user, Jen Kaarlo, said: “Honestly I got oodles of love for that kid”.

And Judy Cummins simply said: “Love him!”

Another royal watcher, Patricia Agudow, noted Prince Louis was particularly lively also during his first-ever appearance on the balcony in June 2019.

She wrote: “Mostly, he was quite lively! Actually, he has loved waving from balcony since a baby.”

During his latest balcony appearance, Prince Louis was also spotted trying to suck his thumb.

However, his doting mother Kate quickly took him by his hand, seemingly to stop him.

The Queen was not at all bothered by her lively great-grandson.

Rather, she was spotted beaming while looking at him and even exchanged a few words with the tot.

Earlier today, Prince Louis marked an important first alongside his siblings.

The three Cambridge children took part for the first time in a carriage drive through the Mall.

Sitting in front of Kate and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the children waved impeccably to the crowds who lined up the streets for several hours – and in a few cases for days – to catch a glimpse of members of the Firm and the parade.

The carriage took them to Horse Guards Parade, from which they headed to the Major General’s Office to watch the parade.

Charlotte, George and Louis were spotted multiple times having animated conversations with their royal cousins and pointing at various soldiers and moments during the spectacle, which involved more than 1200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division.

Royal fans can expect to see Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George on at least another occasion during this extraordinary weekend of celebrations for the Queen.

The Cambridge children have been widely tipped to all be present at the service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign and life taking place tomorrow.

This event is expected to be the only one attended also by Prince Andrew.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are also expected to be in attendance.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who arrived in the UK overnight to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in person, were spotted also earlier today from the balcony overlooking Horse Guards Parade.
