Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis put their royal waves on display as they celebrated their great-grandmother’s platinum jubilee.

The three children of Prince William and his wife Kate were dressed in a colour scheme of navy, white and blue for the first event of the four-day extravaganza.

Thousands of well-wishers got a glimpse of the young royals as they travelled in a carriage with their mother Kate and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Louis, 4, who was wearing a sailor-style outfit reminiscent of one worn by his father in 1985, sat between his big brother and sister as they made their way to Horse Guards Parade for the Trooping the Colour parade.

The trio waved at the crowds packed on to The Mall in central London.

At one point, Princess Charlotte, 7, wearing a summery cornflower blue dress with bow shoulder detail, could be seen pushing Louis’ arm down when he was mid-wave.

The oldest sibling, Prince George, 8, looked smart in a navy suit, white shirt and blue tie for the occasion.

During the Trooping ceremony, the children peered out of the window of the Duke of Wellington’s former office, and they could be seen pointing out towards the ceremony.

The children seemed committed to waving at royal fans, and bowed their heads as they received a salute on their way back to the palace in their carriage.

They then made an appearance on the balcony for the flypast, which prompted some comical reactions from Louis, who held his hands over his ears to block out the roar of the aircraft overhead.

Louis chatted with the queen on the balcony, and once the flypast got going he could be seen covering his eyes, holding his head and resting his chin in his hands at various points.

The young prince was standing next to the 96-year-old monarch who smiled throughout as she looked towards the sky.
