Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis Are Scene Stealers at Trooping the Colour 2022

All three of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children, 8-year-old Prince George, 7-year-old Princess Charlotte, and 4-year-old Prince Louis came out for Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s birthday parade, today in London. The young royals were scene stealers of course during the carriage procession. The three sat alongside their mother Kate Middleton in a carriage. This is their first time joining that part of the festivities. They usually only come out on the balcony to watch the flypast.

The three all matched in blue. George wore a navy suit. Charlotte was outfitted in a blue short-sleeved dress adorned with a bow, and Louis complemented his siblings in a white and navy sailor top.

A source spoke to Us Weekly earlier this year about what George, the oldest and heir to the throne, is like as he approaches 9. “His confidence has grown leaps and bounds over the last couple of years,” the source said. “He is assertive, self-assured and knows what he wants, and doesn’t hold back on speaking his mind. His personality is really starting to shine.”

He is “fun-loving” kid with a “cute, mischievous side,” the source added. “He likes to play pranks on his parents and siblings, and making everyone laugh. Despite the responsibilities he’ll entail in his future role, Kate and William don’t want to see him grow up too quickly. They’re determined to give him as much of a normal childhood as possible and it’s working wonders. He’s such a lovable, down-to-earth little boy.”

He has an artistic side too: “He copies the art and photographs that are up in his Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall homes,” the source said. “He’ll spend hours painting and drawing and absolutely loves it. Kate and William are astonished by how good he is and have framed some of his paintings and given them to [Queen] Elizabeth [II] as gifts. His favorite thing to do is draw pictures of his family.”
