Prince Louis joined his extended family today for his first appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace – when more than 40 Royals squirmed on the edge of Trooping the Color.
The young kings seemed content to suck into Prince William's arms as Kate, Charlotte, and George smiled and clapped during the Queen's official birthday celebration.
Four generations of the royal family gathered on the balcony to view the traditional RAF fly paste, with modern Typhoon jets and historic planes such as the iconic Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster bomber.

There were more brutal antics of Prince George and Princess Charlotte – who stuck out their tongues and pushed their faces against windows to the palace, just like last year.
The event also marked the first appearance of the Duchess of Sussex in public since she gave birth to Archie four weeks ago.
But anyone hoping for a glimpse of the new monarch would be disappointed because he was not present at the annual event.

Harry, Meghan, Kate and others – including the Count and Countess of Wessex and their children the Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor – watched the events from Wellington & # 39; s office overlooking Horse Guards.
The queen was central between Charles and Andrew who, like William, wore their ceremonial military uniforms.
In a repeat of last year, today's event did not go smoothly, as a soldier who participated in the Trooping the Color ceremony had to be taken away on a stretcher after being hurled from his horse – which then fell on top of him.
The officer, Major Niall Hall of the Irish Guard Regimental Adviser, was thrown off his horse and his bear's hat rolled off his head.

Major Niall Hall, the adjutant of the Irish Guard, unexpectedly added drama to the ceremony when he fell off his horse and rolled his bear's hat off his head.
Major Hall, dressed in his ceremonial bright red tunic with golden buttons, white gloves and dark blue trousers with a red stripe, was helped by fellow soldiers and lifted onto a stretcher.

He was lifted onto a stretcher by other soldiers, one of whom carried a first aid bag and the MOD said his injuries were not life-threatening.
The queen was wearing an Angela Kelly tweed dress with shades of light pink, mint yellow and gold and a matching hat from Mrs. Kelly. The head of state also wore a Brigade of Guards badge.
Meghan wore a Givenchy dress by Clare Waight Keller and Noel Stewart's hat, while Kate wore a favorite designer – an Alexander McQueen dress and hat by Philip Treacy.
Meghan (photos shining with crowds of tourists cheering her arrival) told assistants that she wanted to return to her royal duties as soon as possible. It was four weeks ago that she gave birth to her first child
The couple sat opposite Kate and Camilla and passed rows of cheering fans who fell in droves and saw 1400 soldiers, 400 musicians and 200 horses marching in the parade
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, looked tense (right) as she was pictured in the rear car seat, but also effortlessly beaming into a pair of Bahrain pearl earrings, which she has worn for the third time.

Camilla chose mainstay designer Bruce Oldfield who had made a green dress and jacket with white embroidery in combination with a Philip Treacy hat.
Princess Eugenie (29) made a big impression on the crowd during the Horse Guards Parade in a white and blue dress with patterns and neutral makeup, as she watched her father salute Prince Andrew for the first time.
Her black hat, by Emily London, crowned with a white flower, completed the look and complemented the comparable headpiece and the modest pink and black laced dress of 30-year-old Beatrice.
Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, who married in October, sat in their carriages alongside Beatrice and the Duke of Kent.

The Countess of Wessex, who had traveled to the ceremony in a carriage with her husband the Count of Wessex and their children the Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor, wore a green Suzannah dress and hat from Jane Taylor.
Trooping the Color is a ceremonial spectacle that brings together prestigious regiments and the families of the men and women on duty in honor of the official birthday of the monarch.
Horse Guards booths were filled with the wives, girlfriends and parents of the soldiers who fight soldiers while performing ceremonial tasks.
Despite the bleak weather, thousands of spectators have climbed the streets to see 1,400 troops, 400 musicians and 200 horses marching in the parade

Meghan, Harry and the other members of the royal family took their place in the former Wellington office, which overlooks the parade.
The queen arrived in a procession full of splendor with a Sovereign's Escort of the Household Cavalry, consisting of Life Guards and Blues and Royals, in their silver and gold breast plates and plumed helmets.
During the ceremony, the Queen saw journeys to and from Horse Guards Parade in a procession accompanied by a Household Cavalry Escort consisting of the Life Guards and Blues and Royals, in their silver and gold breast plates and plumed helmets.
The mass bands of the Household Division provided musical support during the day and also participated in the King & # 39; s Troop Royal Horse Artillery which after the parade fired a 41-gun salute in Green Park on the occasion of the Queen's official birthday.
Riding on horseback behind the queen's carriage were the royal colonels: the prince of Wales, colonel of the Welsh Guards, the princess Royal, colonel of the blues and Royals, and the duke of Cambridge, colonel of the Irish guard and duke of York, Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

The event contained around 1,400 soldiers in total with hundreds of guardsmen standing at the parade site ready to be inspected by the queen.
The color, or ceremonial regimental flag, which was paraded this year, came from the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, a front line infantry regiment of the British army when not performing ceremonial duties.
Their origins can be traced back to 1656 when the unit was abolished as the bodyguards of the sovereign by King Charles II while he was in exile in Bruges.

The Duke of Edinburgh, who is celebrating his 98th birthday on Monday, has stopped official public duties and has not been present.
Trooping the Color arose from traditional preparations for the fight.
Colors, or flags, were worn by the soldier, or & # 39; truncated & # 39 ;, so that they could be seen and recognized by the soldiers.
In the 18th century, guardians of the royal palaces gathered daily at Horse Guards Parade to comfort & # 39; the colors & # 39; and in 1748 it was announced that the parade would also mark the official birthday of the Sovereign.
