Celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II on the throne began on Thursday with a gun salute and a fly-past of military aircraft. The 96-year-old king, dressed in a dove blue and holding his hand on a walking stick, received greetings from a military parade in London and then waved to a merry crowd outside the mall on the porch of Buckingham Palace for the second time.
Several members of the family – Prince Charles, William and George – joined the Duchess Camilla and Kate Middleton Queen of Cornwall and posed for photographs. But Prince Louis, the youngest son of William and Kate, stole the show.
The four-year-old prince was seen making faces and covering his ears with his hands during the fly-past to silence the deafening noises of the Royal Air Force jets.
Several candid moments of the jubilee celebration have been published online which show the royal in his sailor suit Sporting Sporting Expression while posing with the family on the famous balcony.
Prince Louis was seen chatting with his great-grandfather, who was even bent on talking to him. Also present were her other siblings – Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7.
His notoriety became a hit on social media.
“When the plane leaves, Prince Louis is in full swing next to the Queen.” A Twitter user Post.
“Prince Louis is chatting with his great grandma on #TroopingTheColour today adorable!” Another wrote.
The Queen’s presence at the Platinum Jubilee, a milestone not previously reached by any British king, was in doubt due to illness and recent mobility problems. But the emperor saluted and waved to the crowd below the porch.
The mall downstairs was ablaze with red, white and blue union flags, with some Royal fans camping for several days to stay in the main position to show off their pomp and splendor.
