Queen’s Jubilee: Prince Louis covers his ears while flying past

Prince Louis had an urgent question for the Queen today as they stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during their Platinum Jubilee celebrations, a lipreader revealed.

The four-year-old stole the show when he pulled a series of playful grimaces and looked extremely excited during an RAF flypast that ended with a spectacular performance by the Red Arrows.

At one point, Louis could be seen exchanging a few words with his great-grandmother as they waited for the planes and helicopters to fly overhead.

And a lipreader has told the Mirror what the pair seemed to be talking about – and it seems like there was one thing Louis was desperate to know.

According to Jeremy Freeman, a lip-reading expert, Louis asked, “Are the Red Arrows coming?” To which the Queen very dryly replied, “I hope so.”

As the Red Arrows appeared, painting the sky red, white, and blue, Louis’ excitement seemed to peak after Mr. Freeman said the boy exclaimed, “Yes, yes, yes.”

He added that the Queen then said, “There it is,” before Louis added, “Oh Red Arrows — whoah.”

Meanwhile, Mr Freeman also picked up another exchange when young Louis was seen covering his ears as planes roared over Buckingham Palace in the shape of the number 70 – the number of years in the Queen’s reign.

He says when the Queen saw this she said: “Oh fun”, with Kate saying “amazing” and Charlotte adding “Wow”.

As Louis covered his ears, Mr Freeman said he said: “Whoah – that was loud,” while a proud Kate said to Prince William: “Look at him” – about her little son.

The lipreader’s revelations come as another pundit said Louis’s adorable performance on Trooping the Color during the RAF flypast sparked a “childlike excitement” in the Queen.

According to body language expert Judi James, Louis’ cute and spontaneous demeanor had clearly rubbed off on the 96-year-old monarch, who was seen smiling during the spectacular flyover.

Judi told the Mirror: “William and Kate emerged with serious expressions on their faces, with William getting their children into position before stepping away from Kate to ensure a good spread of parental guidance.

“As the flyby unfolded, however, we were spoiled for the strength of the bonds between the Queen and little Louis. His body language was the most spontaneous and at one point he even moved in front of the queen.

“As he leaned over the balcony looking like Prince Charles at his mother’s coronation, his body language cues alternated between an impatient clapping of his hands on the balcony to a face rub and a head hold that suggested he couldn’t wait see planes.

“However, the Queen looked at him with an indulgent expression and chatted to both her great-grandson and Kate. As the Lancaster flew by, it looked as if Louis’ excitement had inspired a childish excitement in the Queen as well.

“She clearly loved the roar of the engines and when Louis literally jumped up and down at the sight of the Red Arrows, the Queen smiled and chatted as if sharing the moment.”
