The balcony moment at Trooping the Colour is always a highlight, especially when the young royals make an appearance!

There were plenty of sweet and funny interactions between the Prince and Princess of Wales and their three children at the King's birthday parade last Saturday.

After riding in the carriage procession with their mother Kate, who made her first public appearance amid her cancer treatment, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, watched the flypast from the Buckingham Palace balcony with their parents.

Advice from Louis

The Prince and Princess often share anecdotes about their children during their public engagements, with William sharing some unconventional advice from Louis as he visited the England team ahead of the Euros in Germany.

On a visit to St George's Park earlier this month, the Prince told the England squad that Louis had told him to tell the Three Lions to "eat twice the amount" ahead of the tournament.

William said: "I was on the school run this morning with the children and I said: 'What shall I say to the England team today?'

"The best bit of advice I got to ask you was to eat twice the amount you normally would eat.

"So I then had visions of all of you running around with massive great tummies and loads of stitches on the pitch so I think maybe take my youngest's advice with a pinch of salt."
