While the event celebrated his grandfather's special day, the real scene-stealers were the royals who caught the public's eye—especially Louis, who charmed everyone with his irresistible antics. Here are four of his antics that delighted the public:

Dancing as the Parade Goes By

Louis captured everyone's hearts at this year's Trooping the Colour with his infectious energy. Dressed in a navy blue suit, he was caught on camera dancing excitedly at the window of the Duke of Wellington’s former office.

However, the 6-year-old prince's joyful dancing was briefly interrupted by Charlotte, who stepped in as the responsible older sibling and attempted to calm his energetic moves.

Undeterred, Louis continued to charm the crowds with his next set of antics.

Playing with Curtain Strings

Not stopping at just dancing, Louis continued to entertain with another adorable moment, finding amusement in the simplest of things: a curtain cord. As he sat with Catherine by the window, he couldn't resist pulling on the string and examining it with curiosity.

The young prince's curiosity and playful nature were on full display.

Yawning by the Balcony

The long day of celebrations eventually took its toll on the young Prince, who was spotted letting out a huge yawn during the ceremony. The endearing moment, set against the serious expressions of Charlotte and Catherine next to him, made his gesture all the more charming.

The youngest royal quickly composed himself, ready to take on the rest of the day's events with his usual enthusiasm and charm.

His boundless energy would soon be evident again.

Making Funny Expressions at the Event

Louis's playful spirit didn't end there. Photographers had a field day capturing his antics throughout the occasion. One particularly amusing photo showed him squinting his eyes in reaction to a tickle from his father, Prince William.

The fun didn't stop for Louis. In another snap, he shifted from a seemingly serious demeanor while watching the parade to sticking his tongue out, much to the amusement of onlookers.

Lastly, a photo of him grinning widely caught the public's attention, displaying his infectious joy. Amidst Louis's antics, his sister stood prim and proper, providing a charming contrast to his cheeky behavior.

Louis's playful antics added a delightful touch to the grand ceremony, making him the star of the show again. His dancing, playing with the curtain, yawning, and funny faces captured the hearts of many and brought a lighthearted charm to the royal celebration.

However, Louis wasn't the only one who caught attention; Catherine, also stood out with her poised and graceful return to the public eye.

The Princess of Wales dressed elegantly and appeared composed as she engaged in ceremonial activities despite her recent personal challenges. The event, a tradition since 1748 during the reign of King Charles II, showcases over 1,500 soldiers and 300 horses in a grand parade.

This marks her first public appearance since revealing her battle with cancer earlier this month. On June 14, we reported that Catherine opened up about her courageous battle with cancer in a touching new post.

Catherine has shared a heartfelt photo on social media, her first public appearance since announcing her battle with cancer. Captured by photographer Matt Porteous, the image depicts the Princess beside a majestic tree, symbolizing resilience amidst her treatment.

In her Instagram caption, she expressed profound gratitude, "I have been blown away by all the kind messages of support and encouragement," acknowledging the significant impact of these gestures on her and Prince William.

Catherine discussed the realities of chemotherapy, stating, "On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well."

Despite the numerous challenges she has faced, in true Catherine fashion, she remains optimistic and appreciative. She concluded with, "Thank you so much for your continued understanding, and to all of you who have so bravely shared your stories with me."

Catherine's absence from the public eye sparked widespread concern this year amid speculation among the public and media. Unsurprisingly, the public's response to today's post has been overwhelmingly supportive.

In the latest post's comment thread, one user wrote, "Wishing you lots of health and a steady recovery. Sending you lots of strength and patience ❤️." Another called her a "brave woman."

While overcoming these obstacles, the royal couple have maintained their family-first approach. As Royal biographer Ingrid Seward confirmed, "For William, everything hinges on Kate's well-being."

The Prince of Wales has no doubt found it very difficult to cope with his wife and father battling cancer at the same time. Although he has resumed his public duties after taking some time off to be with his nuclear family, they remain his top priority. Hopefully, they have turned a corner, and the rest of the year will be smoother.
