Prince Louis made his first royal debut at the Trooping the Colour and won the hearts of the nation by sweetly waving to the crowds on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Adorably, at the same time the 14-month-old revealed his very common “bad habit” – sucking his thumb.
Throughout the day, the Prince was seen slipping his thumb into his mouth including while looking out the window from inside the palace with his two siblings, Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, four.
But when Louis started sucking his thumb during his balcony debut, the Duchess of Cambridge’s mum reflex kicked in and she gently stepped in to try and stop him.
When husband Prince William was holding Louis, he attempted to remove his son’s thumb gently, but spotting the interaction, the mum-of-three smoothly approached Louis with a smile and effortlessly eased his thumb out of his mouth.
Little Louis then went on to continue his charm offensive by clapping and waving to the crowds.
