Prince William and Kate Middleton's adorable four-year-old son made himself impossible to miss, delighting royal watchers with an array of expressive and very funny faces as the spotlight shone on him during his big balcony moment.

And although Prince Harry wasn't on the balcony to share the spotlight - being no longer an official and active representative of the family - fans couldn't help but think of him, casting their mind back to the years he too thrilled onlookers with funny faces when he was little Louis' age.

This year, as the Queen celebrated 70 years on the throne, there was no doubt that Louis had gained a legion of fans as he appeared on the famed Buckingham Palace balcony next to his family, hilariously covering his ears as an aircraft soared overhead, prompting his mother to have a little word with him.

He delighted fans even further with his outfit, a naval-style sailor suit which many believed was the exact same suit his father, Prince William, wore to Trooping the Colour in 1985. Prince William would have been three years old at the time, so it does seem likely his son would fit perfectly into his former suit.

Though the Jubilee celebrations have been full of joy and fun, they haven't been without their fair share of unexpected changes.

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace on Thursday night, it was revealed that the Queen will be unable to attend Friday's Jubilee celebrations. It stated that while Her Majesty "greatly enjoyed" her first day and the flypast in London, she did "experience some discomfort," due to which she will be pulling out of Friday's national thanksgiving service.
