Prince Louis, just made his debut royal appearance at Trooping the Colour 2019.

Prince Louis joined big brother Prince George and big sister Princess Charlotte along with the rest of the royal family at Trooping the Colour celebrations on Saturday. This was his first time at the event which is held yearly. The ceremony is Queen Elizabeth II's annual birthday parade and dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th Century when the Colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle.

He may only be one, but Prince Louis has already nailed the royal wave. Watch this quick video to see the full cuteness!

Eagle eyed royal watchers have picked up on a detail that I failed to notice.

Little Prince Louis was wearing a charming white and blue outfit. Did it look familiar to you? There's a reason for that. The clothes are hand-me-downs from his uncle Prince Harry!

Harry wore the exact outfit for his second appearance at Trooping the Colour in 1986.

This isn't the first time this has happened either. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, dressed Prince George in the same the light blue outfit with cream lace that his father wore at his first Trooping the Colour celebrations.

The Duchess of Sussex also took a break from maternity leave to attend the Queen's 93rd birthday celebrations. This was her first public appearance since the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor last month.
