When tasked with sitting by way of an hours-prolonged Platinum Jubilee pageant, Prince Louis acted like any 4-12 months-outdated: a bit cuddly, a little bit snackish and really silly.

Prince Louis’ antics spawned lots of an awesome meme past 7 days when he hammed it up on the balcony at Trooping the Colour, and he was back at it on Sunday as his excellent-grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations arrived to a close. Though sitting as a result of an hrs-long pageant, the little prince did what any 4-calendar year-previous would do—get in a bit of difficulty, make silly faces, cuddle his mother and consume treats.

Tasked with wrangling her youngest youngster, the Duchess of Cambridge’s facial expressions also ran the gamut of relatable, from clenched smiles to stern glances and, of system, some unavoidable giggles at some of Louis’ silliest stunts. And who can blame either of them? Sitting still is a tall get for a preschooler at the ideal of instances, and the assumed of parenting a person in front of the whole environment helps make us want to operate and hide.

Luckily for us, Kate got a few breaks when Louis played musical chairs, hopping on to his grandpa Prince Charles’s lap for aspect of the demonstrate and, at yet another place, swapping seats with his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte to be closer to dad.

The pageant seemed very amazing, but there’s no denying that Prince Louis was the star of the show—and we’ve got all the funniest photos under. Well performed, Louis, that could not have been easy. Now go be cost-free!
