Prince Louis Steals the Show as He Dances, Yawns and Plays at Trooping the Colour

At Trooping the Colour, Prince Louis has a reputation for stealing the show, and this year was no exception.

During Saturday’s King’s birthday parade, the six-year-old enjoyed a dance break while his sister Princess Charlotte, nine, eagerly watched on. The youngster had his mother, Princess Catherine, forty-two, in stitches.

Louis was observed dancing to the live music while standing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, watching the procession below. He was swaying his shoulders and hips.

While Charlotte tried to converse with her brother, but he ignored her, Catherine couldn’t help but smile and laugh at her son as he moved to the sounds of bagpipes. It looked like the young royal was dancing to the Highland Dancing of Hielan’ Laddie.

Prince George, 10, Louis’ older brother, was the only one who seemed unaffected by his mischievous behavior. He stood beside his mother and behind his siblings, gazing out at the celebration.

Joining their mother, Queen Camilla, father, the Prince of Wales, and the royal children for the momentous occasion was King Charles during his second Trooping as a monarch and his first since being diagnosed with cancer.

In addition, it was Catherine’s first formal appearance since being diagnosed with cancer six months earlier. As the Princess of Wales left Buckingham Palace in a carriage with her three small children during the procession, she was greeted with a standing ovation.

Catherine, who has not been seen in public since Christmas Day, stated that she is making “great progress” in a self-penned personal message.

“I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” was part of her message.

“On bad days, you have to give in to your body’s need for rest because you feel weak and exhausted. On the other hand, you want to take full advantage of feeling well on your good days, when you feel stronger.
