The Cambridge kids once again stole the show at this year’s Trooping the Colour event in London. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis joined their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, for the celebration of King Charles III’s birthday. The adorable siblings rode in a horse-drawn carriage and happily waved from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Prince Louis, in particular, caught everyone’s attention with his amusing reactions throughout the event. The 5-year-old had everyone laughing when he playfully held his nose during the carriage ride. Later, on the balcony, he even gave the crowd a salute before leaving with his family. It seems that Louis has inherited his parents’ charm and sense of humor!
This year marked the first time that George, Louis, and Charlotte participated in the carriage procession. In previous years, the young royals watched the event from the balcony. As tiny tots, they made their Trooping the Colour debuts when they were just one year old, with George and Charlotte appearing in 2015 and 2016, respectively, and Louis joining them in 2019.
Last year’s parade held a special significance as it coincided with the Platinum Jubilee celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. Sadly, the beloved monarch passed away later that year at the age of 96. Her son, King Charles III, was officially crowned on May 6 of this year, with Prince George even taking part as one of the pages of honor at the royal ceremony.
One notable absence from this year’s Trooping the Colour was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, along with their children, Archie and Lilibet. Due to their strained relationship with the royal family, the couple did not attend the event, even though they had a more private presence last year. However, Prince Harry did make an appearance at his father’s coronation, fueling speculation about his future involvement in royal engagements.
Recently, Prince Louis had his first official royal engagement on May 8. The youngest member of the family, affectionately nicknamed Lou-Bugs, joined his parents and siblings for a Big Help Out volunteer event. Together, they contributed to renovating a hut for a scout group in Slough, England, showcasing the Cambridge children’s commitment to making a positive impact in their community.
Trooping the Colour remains a cherished tradition in the royal calendar. This event not only marks the sovereign’s birthday but also serves as a delightful opportunity to witness the growth and delightful antics of future heirs to the throne. Their presence, alongside their loving parents, continues to captivate royal enthusiasts worldwide.
