The royal balcony appearance was watched by millions of people, with many joking that little Prince Louis, four, stole the show during his appearance by making adorable faces at the loud noises - and also enjoying a little chat with his great grandmother.

It was a day of firsts for Prince Charles, as he, Prince William and Princess Anne took the Trooping the Colour salute for the first time, with the Queen not directly receiving the salute for the first time in her 70-year reign due to mobility issues.

The celebrations continue on Friday, but Buckingham Palace revealed late on Thursday that the Queen will be unable to attend Friday's Service of Thanksgiving. The statement read: "Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow's National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, Her Majesty, with great reluctance, has concluded that she will not attend," adding that she experienced "some discomfort" during Trooping the Colour.
