Prince Louis, the youngest son of Kate Middleton and Prince William, captured the hearts of royals fans as he shared a sweet moment with the Queen at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Thursday morning.
- Prince Louis joined his family as he waved at royal fans on the Mall at today's celebrations
- The son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood next to The Queen on the royal balcony to watch the famous Red Arrows Flypast

This is the sweet moment when Prince Louis decided he wanted to stand next his Great Grandmother, the Queen, on the royal balcony - as millions of people watched the Platinum Jubilee on TV.
The first day of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee saw the whole royal family come out to celebrate - but it was Prince Louis, the youngest child of Kate Middleton and Prince William, who really stole the show.
The young royal stood next to the Queen, looking up at her and asking her a question, while he then went on to make a series of faces during the ten-minute balcony scene, where the Royal Arrows flew over Buckingham Palace, decorating the sky with red, blue and white colors.
During The Queen and Prince Louis's sweet exchange she encouraged the prince to look up at the smoke and at one point said 'that really was wonderful' to him.
Royal fans however joked about how cheeky Louis, who turned four in April, with mother Kate Middleton planning top-secret birthday plans for her youngest, was as he made a series of faces throughout the balcony scene. One fan took to Twitter to say, "Prince Louis looks like a cheeky little one."
And others saw a funny interaction between him and his sister Princess Charlotte, as they rode to Buckingham Palace in the horse-drawn carriage, with the rest of their family.
One fan tweeted: “Charlotte pushing Louis’ hand down because he was waving too much lol.”
And royals fans were really on the ball today as they also noticed something significant about Prince Louis's sailor's outfit.
With one fan saying, “He’s wearing the same outfit William wore at Louis age to the same event,” one royal fan tweeted.
“Prince Louis wearing Prince William’s sailor suit," another tweeted.
The Jubilee celebrations started today with Trooping the Color - trooped by the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards. There was 1,200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division, as well as hundreds of Army musicians and horses.
The celebrations will continue tomorrow when there’ll be a Service of Thanksgiving held for the Queen’s reign at St Paul’s Cathedral.
