Kate Middleton and Prince William couldn’t deny the fact that their youngest son, Prince Louis, stole the show during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ended the four-day festivities by sharing a social media post on Monday where they acknowledged the cheeky behavior of the 4-year-old.

“What a fantastic weekend of celebrations,” the couple wrote. “To see people across the country reuniting with their family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special. Thank you to everyone who came out to show their gratitude to the Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. Crowds from the mall to street party communities across the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember.”

“We all had an amazing time, especially Louis…” they added with eyes emoji.

QUEEN ELIZABETH THROUGH THE YEARS

The note was signed with the couple’s initials, indicating that it came directly from them. The set of photos accompanying the post featured a black and white photo of William, 39, walking with Louis during Trooping the Colour.

Louis attended Trooping the Color on Thursday and took part in a carriage ride with his siblings Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7. At one point, he waved enthusiastically to the crowd before Charlotte tried to stop him.

For the occasion, Louis wore the same sailor suit his father wore in Trooping the Color when he was 2 years old in 1985. That same year, Louis’ uncle, Prince Harry, made his Trooping debut the Colour.

During the celebration, Louis joined his family on their balcony at the palace to watch a Royal Air Force flypast. He made many comedic facial expressions that took over social media. An image of him covering his ears and shouting next to the Queen quickly became a meme.

It is estimated that the royal pageant cost up to $18 million to organize. It is the Queen’s fourth since becoming monarch in February 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI. The first royal pageant was in honor of George III in 1809, which celebrated 50 years of his reign.

Elizabeth is the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
