As is tradition whenever there is a special event in the British royal family, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis get all the attention.
This Saturday 17 June was no exception, as all the Windsors gathered to take part in King Charles’ Trooping the Colour, the monarch’s first and the first since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The little princes rode down the iconic The Mall from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade in a carriage that also carried Queen Camilla and her mother, Princess of Wales Kate Middleton.

As expected, the spontaneity of the children is what fans of the royal family like the most and they have once again left images to remember. Especially in their styles as the children wore red elements in their respective outfits.
During the ride three waved enthusiastically to the thousands of onlookers who gathered outside Buckingham Palace and on The Mall as the King and Prince of Wales travelled on horseback.
George, 9, and Charlotte, 8, have got the royal role down pat, but Louis, 5, is finding it a little harder.
The little prince is a spontaneous and rather restless child, so sometimes his mother’s scolding is not enough and he needs to be corrected by his grandfather, King Charles, or his two older brothers.

Louis was sitting between his two brothers and while they were waving, he was making gestures according to what he was feeling at the time.

The prince would point to the sky for something that caught his eye or hold his nose, the latter gesture attracting a lot of attention.
According to some media reports, perhaps the prince’s spontaneity was due to the number of horses and the debris they were leaving around them.
His mother, Kate Middleton, tried to scold her son, but without losing her composure at any time, as she knows that at these moments all eyes are on her.
With a glance or a forced smile, she would let her son know to please behave better.
Once on the balcony, Louis kept gesturing as they enjoyed the display of some 70 aircraft from the Royal Navy, the British Army, and the Royal Air Force.
Prince George also had a spontaneous moment when he sneezed during the carriage ride.
