The youngest child of Prince William and Princess Catherine, five, previously hit headlines when he screamed through the flypast over Buckingham Palace during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee last summer.

Prince Louis attended the ceremony alongside siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, whose hand he held as he entered the Abbey.

It's understood he was intended to leave during the ceremony, but Louis returned for the final procession out of the Abbey.

He wore a Hainsworth Garter Blue Doeskin Tunic with collars made by bespoke tailors Dege and Skinner.

The fourth in line to the throne travelled back to Buckingham Palace alongside his family in a carriage as part of the grand Coronation procession.

Meanwhile Prince George joined the Pages of Honour in holding the King's robes as he entered Westminster Abbey.

George was one of four boys who held the robes of Charles III outside the Abbey.

He also waved to the crowds on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the flypast.

It was thought the Red Arrows may be forced to cancel the journey over London.

But they joined a trio of chinooks to make the short journey over the capital as royals watched on from the Palace balcony.
