Cheeky Prince Louis “specially” had an incredible time at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, his parents said as they thanked the millions who attended.
The four-year-old stole the show over and over again at the weekend.
During Thursday’s flyby – believed to be wearing his father’s 38-year-old sailor suit – he covered his ears and howled.
His ‘Gan Gan’ which the Queen lovingly lent him to tell him what was going on.
At Saturday’s concert, he stood in his chair, waving his hands in the air, squirming around and even wrinkling his nose at mum Kate – before Mike Tindall playfully signaled that he would be keeping an eye on him.
He was then seen hopping on his grandfather Prince Charles’ knee at Sunday’s pageant in the Mall.
Alongside pictures from the weekend – and a wide-eyed emoji – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tweeted: “What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. It was very special to see people across the country coming together with family, friends and loved ones.
“Thank you to everyone who came out to show their gratitude to the Queen and her inspiring 70-year leadership. From crowds on the Mall to communities holding street parties across the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember.
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…”
The Duchess of Cornwall, patron of the Big Lunch, estimated that up to 18 million people attended the anniversary street parties.
The Queen, 96, thanked the nation after her surprise appearance on the balcony at Sunday’s final and later told the nation she remained “obligated to serve her to the best of her ability”.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted a photo of daughter Lilibet after she celebrated her first birthday on Saturday.
The “sincere and spontaneous” snap of the boy, who inherited her mother’s good looks and father’s auburn hair, is said to have been taken by friend Misan Harriman at an intimate picnic at Frogmore Cottage, their Windsor home.
The couple are believed to have invited family and close friends to the gathering to honor their little one.
They said they were “incredibly touched” by the flood of birthday wishes for Lilibet, who was named in honor of the Queen.
More than US$100,000 (£79,800) in donations to the humanitarian charity World Central Kitchen were made in her honor by people around the world.
The photo was released after the family fled from the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations an hour before the start of Sunday’s pageant.
Harry and Meghan, who played no official role at the event weekend, flew back to the US on a private jet with Lilibet and her big brother Archie.
The enthusiastic climate protection activists then made their way back to their home in California, with Harry photographed in the passenger seat of a black Range Rover.
