Just three days after he stole the show at the Trooping the Colour, Prince Louis was at it again at the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.
As any parent with a preschooler can attest, the Cambridge kid’s actions were typical of any youngster forced to sit in one place for too long.
Photos from Sunday’s Platinum Jubilee concluding festivities show the spirited Louis in the front row of the royal box, flanked by his mom, Kate Middleton, and sister, Princess Charlotte.
While he danced for some of the pageant’s acts, he was more often seen squirming in his seat, pulling funny faces, and running between his mom and grandpa, Prince Charles.
He could also be seen having a disagreement with Middleton, taunting her with a thumb to his nose and covering her mouth when she attempted to reprimand him.
Sitting for hours at a time can be a challenge for anyone, let alone a four-year-old, so his actions during the two-and-a-half-hour show were completely expected.
Middleton was in peak mom mode, however, and kept a watchful eye over him while giving him plenty of cuddles and pointing out interesting parts of the pageant.
At the end of the day, Louis proved a bit calmer as he posed on the balcony at Kensington Palace, alongside his great-grandmother the Queen and the other members of his immediate family.

The Cambridges acknowledged their youngest’s silly antics in a social media post capping off the four-day celebration of the Queen’s 70 years of reign.
“What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special,” they wrote.
“Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember.”
Prince William and Kate then joked, “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…” with the eyes emoji.
Prince Louis also delighted royal fans on the balcony during last week’s Trooping the Colour, when he covered his ears and pulled faces during the Royal Air Force flypast.
Needless to say, the world is fully charmed by the young prince.
Here’s hoping it’s not too long before we get to see more of this silly, fun-loving kid.
