After four days of celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Kate and Prince William shared a social media post in which they couldn't help but acknowledge Louis' cheekiness. "What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special," they wrote. "Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember." The parents of three then quipped, "We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…" with the eyes emoji.
