Thursday 2 June 2022 02:58 PM Prince Louis takes centre stage during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations trends now
Prince Louis took centre stage at today's London Platinum Jubilee celebrations, stealing the scene with his mischievous antics as he was snapped pulling faces and picking his nose during Trooping the Colour.
Four-year-old Louis, who is the youngest of the Cambridge children, was also photographed waving enthusiastically at bystanders earlier in the day, as he joined his siblings Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, seven, in a carriage ride down the Mall to Horse Guards Parade for the Queen's Birthday Parade, the first official Platinum Jubilee event of the bank holiday weekend.
However, his most attention-grabbing moments came courtesy of the obviously strong bond he shares with his great grandmother, the Queen, who was seen chatting to the youngster during the flypast in an effort to distract him from the loud noise of the aircraft.
And Louis seemed entranced, looking up inquisitively at the monarch, and seeking out her attention.

At one point while watching Trooping the Colour, the young royal appeared to be overwhelmed by the noise, and was seen covering his ears while shouting
After his animated carriage ride, the four-year-old prince (pictured, centre) still had plenty of energy, and was snapped frowning as he saluted while watching Trooping the Colour with his big sister Princess Charlotte (picture, right) on a balcony at Horseguards Parade
Although the young royal seemed overwhelmed at times by the noise, a few soothing words from his 'Gan-gan' seemed to do the trick and calm him down
At one point, Louis even broke away from his mother Kate Middleton to barge past the Queen, much to the bemusement of the Duchess and Camilla.
According to a lipreader, during the noisy flypast, as Louis was seen trying to squeeze past the Queen, Kate said to Camilla: 'He really is trying to squeeze by!'
As the planes flew overhead, Kate said to Louis: 'It's so cool look at that.'
Meanwhile, speaking to her great grandson, the Queen said: 'Look up at all that smoke!'
After the flypast, she turned back to the young royal, and added: 'Let’s go it’s finished now. That really was wonderful, so incredible.'

Despite the animated carriage ride, all three children showed respect to the great-grandmother, bowing their heads as the national anthem played
Louis' attention-grabbing actions on the balcony followed his eventful ride down The Mall earlier in the day, when he'd travelled to the Palace in a horse-drawn carriage with his mother mother Kate Middleton, 40, the Duchess of Cornwall, 74 as well as his siblings George and Charlotte.
Video footage of the journey appears to show Charlotte ticking off her younger brother for waving too much at the assembled crowds.
A video clip of the children shows the seven-year-old princess asking Prince Louis to 'stop waving!' as they made their journey through the crowds.
This prompted a minor squabble between the youngest two royals in the carriage, while their elder brother Prince George looked on.
However, despite being ticked off by his sister, Prince Louis continued to wave animatedly at bystanders, though all three children were snapped showing respect for their great grandmother, the Cambridge children dutifully bowed their heads when the national anthem was played on their arrival into Horse Guards Parade.
While the Cambridge children made the journey to Buckingham Palace in a carriage, the Queen was spotted travelling from Windsor Castle by car.
However, other members of the Firm also made public appearances in horse-drawn carriages, with three leaving the forecourt of Buckingham Palace carrying members of the Royal Family down The Mall this morning.
The first carriage took the Cambridge children, as well as Kate Middleton and the Duchess of Cornwall.
They were followed in the glorious sunshine by the Earl and Countess of Wessex with their son James,
