Prince Louis was among the royals that joined the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the grand show for the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee. The youngster was seen chatting with his great-grandmother, and it seems that both of them were quite excited about the show.
Queen Elizabeth is marking a record 70 years on the throne, with the four-day celebration kicking off this Thursday with Trooping the Colour.
Her Majesty looked like she was enjoying herself, no doubt due to the infectious excitement that radiated from Prince Louis as he waited for the spectacle in the sky to start.
It was smiles all around as the Red Arrows passed overhead, with the most in awe being the little Prince Louis.
Kate Middleton was seen whispering something in Louis’ ear-just before he started frantically waving up above at the passing planes.
The stars of the show were Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte, who then continued their playful waves all over the place.
The Queen pointed into the distance and then talked some more with Prince Louis-most likely to redirect his attention to the latest RAF flypast. It seems that whatever Kate whispered in his ear didn’t help much, as the young royal continued to jump up and down on the spot from the excitement.
Then the Prince quickly turned to his great-grandmother and asked her another animated question. Then both Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte covered their ears as the planes boomed as they flew past.
As the Red Arrows passed, Prince Louis’ jaw simple dropped, with the Prince turning again at the Queen in disbelief at the amazing sight-before starting to wave at the planes again.
The Queen was joined by senior royals-such as Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton, for the amazing RAF flypast. It featured 71 aircraft that took flight over London and painted the sky red, white and blue with an amazing display of skill from the Red Arrows.
Missing from the main cast were Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew. This is due to the fact that the Queen limited the line-up to working royals only.
It has been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have returned to the UK for this landmark event and have been given prime seats to follow all the celebrations. It is still unknown whether their two children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, are accompanying their parents on this return to the UK.
Prince Andrew’s omission is quite reasonable, with all the controversy around his sex allegations scandal.
Thousands of royal fans swamped the Union Jack-and Mall for Trooping the Colour in honour of the Platinum Jubilee.
An astonishing 1,200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division took part in in the Birthday Parade this morning. This is only the start of the celebrations planned for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over the coming weekend.
For the Horse Guards Parade, mounted troops from the 1st Battalion and Irish Guards were joined by 400 musicians and 240 horses. And there is much more to come.
