'BESTIES': Grandpa Prince Charles comforting restless Prince Louis on his lap warms Internet
While watching the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, Prince Louis became restless and his grandfather Prince Charles calmed him by taking him on his lap and rocking him side to side
During the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Sunday, June 5, Prince Charles and his grandson Prince Louis shared a very touching and endearing moment when the tiny prince came and sat on his grandfather's lap.
While watching the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, Prince Louis shared a sweet moment with his grandfather. Prince Charles rocked the four-year-old from side to side as he sat on his lap in the royal box. It happened when the child was watching the parade honoring the Queen's seven-decade reign. On Sunday, June 5, the young prince dominated the show once more, making silly faces and fully amusing the audience. The youngest Cambridge puffed out his cheeks and covered his eyes before sticking out his tongue at his mother Kate Middleton. He was then spotted sprinting over to the Prince of Wales, who attempted to divert him by pointing out several floats during the event that concludes the four-day weekend. During the Trooping the Colour flypast on Thursday, June 2, he thrilled royal followers by howling and protecting his ears. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Zara Tindall, and her two eldest kids Mia and Lena as well as Princess Beatrice attended the ceremony.
Users on social media and royal family photographers noticed the endearing moment. One user tweeted, "One thing I love about Royal photography is the privileged position you have to document the generations growing in front of your eyes. That said the lovely photos with Prince Charles and Louis yesterday reminded me of this moment in Clarence House garden for HRH’s 70th."

"Prince Louis and Grandpa Wales!!!" a user wrote, posting photos of the adorable moment.
The Queen, also known as his "Gan Gan", talked warmly with him, leaning down to talk to him and pointing out the planes. Louis sat in the front row, next to his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Mike Tindall was spotted joking earlier that he had his eyes set on the four-year-old when he got up to mischief.
As the parade began earlier, a hologram of the Queen as a young lady was shown in the famous Gold State Coach used at her coronation. After the royal standard is raised over the home, her Majesty is anticipated to arrive on the Buckingham Palace balcony. She hasn't been seen in public since the opening day of the festivities on Thursday, 2 June.
Harry and Meghan were seen attending a Thanksgiving Service at St Paul's Cathedral in London on Saturday, June 4. The couple had decided to stick to the script in order to maintain a low profile throughout the weekend. At the Queen's Thanksgiving Service at St Paul's on Friday, June 3, they had to do with second-row royal rank. On Sunday, June 5, the couple traveled back to California in a private plane.
