Louis’ enthusiastic clapping after the end of the national anthem melted hearts.

Louis, who only last month was shown in pictures walking for the first time, appears to be a natural as he lapped up the applause from thousands of royal fans outside the palace gates.

The smiling one-year-old toddler looked adorable as he peeked through the window at Buckingham Palace with his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and waved at the crowds on the balcony.

Prince Louis was seen peering at the crowds that had gathered outside the royal residence with his brother and sister, before making his public debut.

Royal fans were desperate to see the young royal attend his first public event, following sweet pictures released at Kate’s Chelsea Flower Show garden.

It’s been tradition for the young Cambridge children to attend their first engagement at Trooping the Colour.

The event is also the first royal engagement for the Duchess, who gave birth just 31 days ago to baby Archie.

The mum-of-one was last seen two days after giving birth, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex presented Archie to the world.
