The youngster, who is almost five weeks old, was too young to make an appearance on the balcony of palace - although it is not entirely clear whether he attended the event or not.

Meghan hasn't been seen in public since Archie was born on May 6 and has been focusing on bonding with her bundle of joy in Windsor's Frogmore Cottage.

While Archie may not have made an appearance Prince Louis stole the show as he attended his first royal engagement at Trooping the Colour.

Mum Kate held him as she stood on balcony where he could be seen excitedly waving and pointing at the huge crowds.

Kate laughed and said "wow" as Louis looked amazed at the spectacle.
