Prince Louis joined Kate Middleton and Prince William and his siblings Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, as they headed to the royal family's holiday church outing on Sunday. The youngest of the brood, the four-year-old marked his official debut at the annual event. Last year, he was unable to be part of the family's traditional walk to the service due to COVID-19 precautions. This year however the young prince held his mom's hand as the family made their walk to attend the church service at St. Mary Magdalene.

Prince Louis has attended a handful of royal events including the Platinum Jubilee Pageant and he's often gone viral for his adorable antics. The event was to mark his late great-grandmother, the Queen's big day, but it was Prince Louis who stole the show. All eyes were on the Queen as she appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Trooping the Color parade as she marked 70 years on the throne. On the morning of June 2nd, 2022, 70 aircraft appeared for the impressive flypast. Towards the end, U.K.’s colors of red, white, and blue pulled through the sky as airplanes flew past to roaring crowds below. While the other family members remained posed the little prince had no qualms about showing off how he felt. It seemed like the sound of the planes were too loud for him and he couldn't conceal his myriad of emotions!

Mom Kate Middleton has often admitted that she keeps thinking "Louis is a baby but he's a big boy now. It just feels like yesterday," she shared according to Elle. She along with her husband plan on giving their kids a "normal childhood." "They know what's coming [as they near the throne] and want to give their kids as normal a start as possible," an aide previously shared who added that the royal parents try to keep their kids grounded amid their privileged childhood.
More recently they shared a new family photo that is being used on the family Christmas card. In the photo, dressed in smart casuals and coordinating shades of blue, Prince William and Princess Kate walk, both 40, along a path holding hands with their three children. What a lovely photo, indeed!
