Prince Louis made his official royal balcony debut yesterday, and just LOOK at him
What a cutie!
Yesterday, a number of members of the Royal Family stepped out onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
The reason was The Trooping of the Colours, the event that formally kicks off the Queen's birthday celebrations.
It was quite the day, with so many familiar faces making an appearance.
The beautiful Meghan Markle was there, marking her first official appearance since the birth of her son.
Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice were also there, along with their father.
And of course, The Cambridges were on the balcony, looking like a gorgeous little family.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis join The Queen and Members of @TheRoyalFamily to watch the @RoyalAirForceUK @RAFRedArrows fly past over Buckingham Palace, following Trooping the Colour, The Queen’s Birthday Parade. Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday.?PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #BuckinghamPalace #QBP2019
But if we're being honest, we watched the event for one reason, and one reason only - Prince Louis.
The Trooping of the Colour was the Prince's royal balcony debut, and lads, it didn't disappoint.
First of all, we need to discuss his outfit, which was just perfect in every way.
Prince Louis wore his uncle Harry's hand-me-downs, wearing the same outfit that Harry wore to The Trooping of the Colour in 1986.
How sweet is that?

Happy Birthday to Her Majesty The Queen! The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on 21 April and her official birthday on (usually) the second Saturday in June. Official celebrations to mark the Sovereigns' birthday have often been held on a day other than the actual birthday, particularly when the actual birthday has not been in the summer. King Edward VII, for example, was born on 9 November, but his official birthday was marked throughout his reign in May or June when there was a greater likelihood of good weather for the Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour. ?PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #BuckinghamPalace #QBP2019
Then, outfit aside, there was Prince Louis' general banter - and his hilarious facial expressions.
The one-year-old royal waved at the crowds, almost knocking of Camilla's hat at one stage.
Louis was expected to make his debut at Trooping this year, judging by his age.
The prince is almost 15 months old; Princess Charlotte was 13 months old when she attended her first Trooping in 2016.
Prince George, however, was nearly two years old when he made his debut. The future King was considered too young to attend back in June 2014 when he was just ten months old.
