“Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to the Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership.
“From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember.
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…”
The youngster attended several events alongside his parents and older siblings Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, seven, including the Trooping the Color parade, where he stole the show with his amusing antics.
Under the careful watch of his big sister, Louis could be seen waving at the crowds that had turned out to see the iconic Horse Guards Parade as he watched the procession intently.
At the parade’s conclusion with a Red Arrows flypast, dressed in an adorable sailor suit, Louis could be seen chatting away to his great-grandmother the Queen about the planes as they flew overhead.
Yet in a now iconic moment, Louis could be seen clamping his hands tightly over his ears as the aircraft thundered overhead leaving trails of red white and blue smoke in their wake.
Fans at home were loving the Prince’s actions too, with many suggesting that he had stolen the show with his reactions.
One wrote: “Prince Louis is stealing the show on the balcony,” while another said: “Love little Louis chatting with his great grandmother and being very animated with the fly past… what a cutie.”
Louis also made an appearance on William and Kate’s official Instagram page too, as they shared a snap of him alongside his siblings as they baked cupcakes together to serve at one of 16,000 jubilee taking place across the country.
The young royal however wasn’t at all of the key events involved in the Jubilee celebration, as he and his brother didn’t attend the Thanksgiving service on Friday in recognition of The Queen’s long and enduring reign.
Louis again remained with his nanny on Saturday evening as Charlotte and George joined their parents for a star studded concert at the Platinum Party at the Palace.
The prince did however return to the celebrations for Sunday’s Platinum Jubilee pageant, which rounded off the four day weekend with an animated selection of performances featuring contributions from all across the commonwealth.
Showing off his funny personality, Louis could be seen dancing along to the music at times, while throwing his arms up in the air, closing his eyes and jamming away – much to the amusement of his mother.
He was even seen lifting his hands up to his face and blowing a raspberry as Kate watched on, clearly finding her youngest child hilarious.
In one particularly amusing exchange, Mike Tindall, the husband of Prince William’s cousin, Zara Tindall, was seen joking around with the young prince and telling him to behave by gesturing ‘I’m watching you’ with his hands as Prince Louis giggled away.
The youngest Cambridge child also joined his parents, siblings and grandparents Prince Charles and wife Camilla, as they stood on the Buckingham Palace balcony the Queen at the end of Sunday alongside’s Jubilee Pageant.
Much to the delight of fans, the Queen made a surprise appearance at the culmination of four days of Platinum Jubilee celebrations, even after being forced to miss two key events herself due to some “discomfort”.
Following her balcony appearance, the Queen shared a sweet and poignant message of gratitude with fans and well wishers on social media.
Posting on the official Royal Family twitter account, she wrote: “When it comes to how to mark seventy years as your Queen, there is no guidebook to follow. It really is a first. But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee.
“While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.
“I have been inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship that has been so evident in recent days, and I hope tis renewed sense of togetherness will be felt for many years to come.
“I thank you most sincerely for your good wishes and for the part you have all played in these happy celebrations.”
