The event culminated in a four-day celebration with the Queen's birthday parade known as Trooping the Colour, a service of thanksgiving, the big jubilee lunch, and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, among other events.

Being the last day of the celebration, Sunday had the Jubilee Pageant, which included a military parade, cultural representation across the Commonwealth, and a musical finale topped by Ed Sheeran's performance.

As the parade ended, Queen Elizabeth II appeared on a balcony of Buckingham Palace with her family around her and waved at the crowd before going back inside the palace.

To end the day, ABBA's "Dancing Queen" was performed. However, despite the joyous crowd and the festivities, Prince Louis stole the show and had the internet talking about him.

Onlookers couldn't get enough of Prince Louis's mood swings at Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee Pageant celebration on Sunday, June 5, 2022.

Sitting next to his mom, Kate Middleton, Prince Louis went from sweet and cuddly to mischievous and sassy and back all day.

It was the perfect follow-up to the prince's already-iconic scream at Thursday's Trooping the Colour celebrations, where he put his hands over his ears to block out the Royal Air Force jets' loud noise during the flypast.

Some people want to dedicate a whole meme section to Prince Louis, while others have compared him to his father, Prince William. Irrespective of what they had written, Prince Louis became a viral hit for his genuine reactions and expressions at the event.

While one netizen tweeted that Prince Louis's endearing expressions were his "very essence," another called the various faces he made a mood board, and others called his moods a vibe.

The Cambridges are attending the monarch's traditional birthday parade for the first time since 2019. Because of the COVID-19 epidemic, they reduced the size of the event over the last two years.

HOW OLD IS PRINCE LOUIS?

Prince Louis turned four on April 23, 2022. Kate and Prince William are proud parents who marked their youngest son's birthday by releasing four new photos of the little prince. Kate took the images near the family's country home in Norfolk.

"4 years old tomorrow!"

As has become a tradition for the Duchess of Cambridge, a keen photographer, she loves to take pictures of her kids for their birthdays.
