The United Kingdom celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s 93rd birthday on Saturday, but her great-grandson undoubtedly stole the show.

Although the monarch is born on April 21st, it is British tradition to celebrate the reigning sovereign’s birthday on a Saturday in June with an event known as the “Trooping the Colour” parade.

Members of the royal family were, of course, in attendance for the Queen’s big day, including little Louis.

This marked the 1-year-old Prince of Cambridge’s first royal engagement and he shared an adorable wave with the crowd as he stood alongside his parents, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, and siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The Trooping the Colour also marked the first public appearance for Meghan Markle since giving birth to baby Archie four weeks ago.

Seems like a royally lovely day!
