Prince Louis at the Jubilee

by Hanna Woodside |

Prince Louis well and truly stole the show at Thursday's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. As thousands of well-wishers gathered outside Buckingham Palace - and millions more watched live on television - Prince Louis treated us to a meme-worthy display as the family gathered on the balcony, thanks to his hilariously unabashed reaction to the noise of the flypast.

It's not the first time a young Royal has delighted onlookers with their antics (and had parents across the land sympathise with their visibly flustered Royal parents). From toddler tantrums to flashes of cheeky charm, we look back on the best Royal rascal moments...
