Prince Louis’ adorable antics certainly stole the show at the Platinum Jubilee, however, it seems not everyone was fond of his behaviour.
A lip reader captured a serious parenting moment between the Duchess of Cambridge and young Louis, as the family were sitting in the royal box on the final day of celebrations.
The Cambridges were enjoying the colourful floats at the pageant and Louis was seen pulling faces and getting tired and restless.
According to lip reading expert Jeremy Freeman, Kate had some stern words for her youngest during his grumpy moment.
Jeremy says when Kate spotted Louis picking his nose and put his hand down, she said to her son: “You have to.”
“I don’t want to,” Louis reportedly answered, before cheekily covering his mum’s mouth. Kate then replied: “I said no hands!” and gave him another serious look.
The lip reader says Kate once again told Louis to stop with his antics after he stuck his tongue out. “Stop doing that,” she said.
A sweet moment between Prince Louis and his older cousin Mike Tindall was also caught on camera. While Louis was misbehaving, Mike was seen jokingly warning the young Royal that he was watching him from the seats above, gesturing to his eyes.
There were other moments when Louis sat in the lap of dad Prince William and granddad Prince Charles.
The Prince of Wales was seen bopping his grandson with his legs and also pointed out parts of the display to him.
Prince Louis was also spotted having a great time dancing along to the music as the floats went by.
Kate’s relatable parenting moment captured the hearts of millions as they watched the Cambridges enjoy the Jubilee carnival.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made light of Louis’ cheeky behaviour in an Instagram, sharing ten unseen photos from the Jubilee celebrations.
Freeman also caught a precious exchange between the Queen, and her great-grandson during their balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour.
Reportedly, Prince Louis looked up to his great-grandmother and asked: “Are the Red Arrows coming?”
The Queen replied, “I hope so.” At one point, the Queen told Louis to “look at the smoke”.
The young royal also expressed amazement at the Armed Forces jets, turning to his mother and saying: “Woah.”
At the end of the display, the monarch told her great-grandson: “Let’s go, it’s finished now.”
Body language expert Judi James told the publication that the monarch and Prince Louis shared “childlike excitement” on the balcony.
She explained: “Louis stepped in front of the Queen before tilting his head back to engage her in some animated conversation as they waited for the Red Arrows.
“Louis made this conversation look like the most natural thing in the world and his lack of anything bordering on fear suggested these two might share a rather close friendship based on shared fun behind the scenes, too.”
