It was another adorable appearance from the Cambridge children at Trooping the Color on June 17 in London. Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, all attended the sovereign’s birthday bash – a first of its kind for King Charles III. The siblings then boarded a horse-drawn carriage and waved from the balcony at Buckingham Palace with their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Louis was once again to be thanked for his hilarious reactions to the incident. During the carriage ride, the 5-year-old held her nose, and later, on the balcony, she saluted the crowd before walking out with her parents and siblings.
George, Louis and Charlotte will take part in the carriage procession for the first time in 2022. George and Charlotte first appeared in 2015 and 2016 respectively, and Louis joined his siblings in 2019.
Last year’s parade, held on 2 June, coincided with the platinum jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. The monarch died months later at the age of 96, and her son was officially crowned on 6 May this year, with George being one of the pages of honor at the royal ceremony.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (along with their children, 4-year-old Prince Archie and 2-year-old Princess Lilibet) did not attend Trooping the Color amid their strained relationship with the royal family. The couple attended last year in a more private capacity, and they did not take part in the official procession. Harry also recently attended his father’s coronation after much speculation, but has been notably absent from other surrounding events.
Trooping the Color comes shortly after Louis’ first official royal engagement on May 8. The youngest child, nicknamed Lo-Bugs, joined his parents and siblings in the Big Help Out volunteer program, where he helped renovate a cottage for Scouts. Group in Slough, England.
