Prince Louis attended his first ever Trooping of the Colour event on Saturday with the rest of the family, and paid tribute to uncle Prince Harry in the cutest way…

The one-year-old attended Trooping of the Colour for his first time this weekend, after being too young to attend last year, just a few weeks after he was welcomed into the world in May 2018.

And, the youngest member of the family stole the show with his Buckingham Palace balcony debut, and his own very cute version of the royal wave.

On closer look from royal fans, it seems Prince Louis’ outfit choice was one we had seen before…

Sporting the same outfit worn by Prince Harry at the Trooping the Colour event in 1986, Prince Louis wore a white shirt with blue-patterned print and bright blue shorts.

And, just four-years ago, older brother Prince George was dressed in the same blue and white ensemble mirroring the one William wore for a trip to Balmoral in 1984.

Kate, who wore a similar pastel Alexander McQueen yellow dress worn by Prince Anne as she held Prince Harry in 1984, held excitable Louis.

As usual, Louis won the hearts of the nation waving enthusiastically from the balcony – just like big sister Charlotte.

And, while getting comfortable cradled by William, Louis was caught sucking on his thumb, which was swiftly removed from the little one’s mouth by Kate.

Alongside siblings Charlotte and George, Louis seems to have enjoyed his Trooping of the Colour day out watching the Red Arrows flypast for the first time.

This is no surprise as the little tot seemed to love the outdoors when he visited the garden Kate helped design at Chelsea Flower Show last month.

It’s tradition for all young tots to attend the Trooping ceremony to celebrate the Queen's birthday.

Charlotte attended her first Trooping Ceremony at 13-months old and George was almost two-years-old when he attended.

Perhaps baby Archie will make his first debut at the event next year.

We will have to wait and see what outfit he will be wearing.
