Her husband Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton and the Queen all posed up on the famous Buckingham Palace balcony to celebrate the monarch's birthday.

Little Prince Louis was snapped waving at the crowds at his first Trooping the Colour.

Here body language expert Judi James takes a look at what that balcony moment tells us about the royals - and how politics has shifted in just 12 months.

The way Kate and Meghan were seen chatting together during their carriage ride did give a hint that we might finally see William and Harry re-kindling their close sibling bonds on the balcony after the ceremony.

Last year Harry and Meghan stood behind Kate and William but in close and quite easy-going proximity but this year it was less ‘Six degrees of separation’ and more like sixty as William led his wife and children to one side of the balcony while Harry and Meghan stayed on the other.

Harry still looked rather stern-faced, standing behind Meghan and only really responding to her once, although he did share a laugh with Eugenie and Meghan later on. Meghan smiled charmingly but did look a little lost for people to chat to.

In terms of the body language though, it was little Louis’s moment. Carried in Kate’s arms he arrived actively gesticulating to everyone he passed and the pointing to the skies and waving at the crowds with the kind of energy and enthusiasm that had all the royals around him grinning.

William took him from Kate and his beaming smile as his youngest son did such huge waves he almost toppled over suggested huge levels of paternal pride.

Camilla appeared to have strong bonds with Louis too, he seemed to reach his arms out when he first saw her and at one point Camilla turned to Louis and mimicked his face to make him laugh as he watched the Red Arrows arriving.
