Prince Louis may never sit on the British throne – but he made sure his presence at Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Flyover will go down in history.
The 4-year-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, immediately became a gripe-worthy gold for pictures of him covering his ears and making Macaulay Culkin-inspired faces while standing next to his grandmother. Granny.
Twitter immediately erupted with a photo of a stone cold Elizabeth next to a screaming Louis with a variety of hilarious interpretations.
“As the parent of a four-year-old who is not on the throne. Prince Louis, we see you and we understand you,” the former White House press secretary said Jen Psaki tweeted.
“People were worried that others would eclipse the Queen. Prince Louis accepted the challenge.” wrote another user.
The Post’s Instagram account even posted the all-too-relatable meme below.
And since the reaction on social media was too good, we decided to participate as well.
Louis’ delightful performance came as he and his famous family members gathered on a balcony during the anniversary flypast, to great cheers from the crowd on The Mall. They were there to watch Royal Air Force planes thunder overhead to kick off the four-day celebrations in honor of the Queen’s Jubilee.
Louis’ onstage antics came after he was seen waving at planes and even chatting with his great-grandmother. At one point, Her Majesty even bent down to speak to the little prince, who looked up and listened intently to her every word. However, the little prince appeared to be reprimanded at several points by his mother and sister.
The Platinum Jubilee marks Her Majesty’s 70th anniversary on the throne – a grand tribute to the longest-serving monarch. The UK will host several activities for royal supporters and their famous family to celebrate.
Also in attendance were Prince Louis’ siblings Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, and their parents, Prince William, 39, and Middleton, 40.
Britain’s BBC is partnering with ABC to broadcast all events across the US, while other American news networks, including NBC, will also cover the celebrations. Check out The Post’s handy guide to see the four-day celebration in its entirety.
