What the Queen really told Prince Louis on the balcony
enjoyed some heart-warming moments with her great-grandchildren Prince George
Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as they joined her on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the first time on Thursday.
Trooping the Colour
culminated in a spectacular flypast which kept the younger members of her family fascinated
and the Queen seemed to especially enjoy chatting with
, as they watched the planes and helicopters overhead.
The proud great-grandmother pointed to the sky, and said to the little boy: "Look, can you see them?"
At one point, the little boy asked his great-grandmother a question, to which the Queen appeared to respond: "Have you seen what? Ah, the jets!"
The 96-year-old monarch also smiled as she said "Watch them," to Louis.
She could also be seen beaming and saying "Seventy"
as planes moved into a 70 formation to honour her years on the throne.
The event, which celebrates the Queen's official birthday, this year also marked the beginning of a long weekend of
Platinum Jubilee celebrations
