King Charles and Queen Camilla were officially crowned during the Coronation on 6 May and now one week on, Kate Middleton and Prince William have released a gorgeous film reflecting on the historic weekend.
The Prince and Princess of Wales shared a sleek almost five minute video to their social media accounts, which gave an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the couple and their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, celebrating.
The film runs through the weekend celebrations, culminating in the Big Help Out celebrations on Monday 8th May.
And in an adorable moment from the day, smiling Kate is seen skipping with Charlotte and Louis, as the trio hold hands.
The Wales family got stuck into helping renovate a Scout hut site in Slough, Berkshire, as part of the Big Help Out and Prince Louis busied himself painting, digging and decorating under the watchful eye of his parents.
Eager to try everything from shovelling sand to painting a planter base and wheeling a barrow, the five-year-old royal ended the day splashed with paint but got his reward – a marshmallow-and-chocolate biscuit sandwich.
When William took control of a digger and dumped a bucket full of earth onto a spoil heap, Louis was sat in his father’s lap after seeing nine-year-old George have a go and telling mum Kate “I want to go in with him”.
Louis was given his chance to take charge and asked “What does this one do?” as he pulled a lever, but was not phased when the digger lurched back slightly and was encouraged by his father, who said “Keep going Louis, that’s it”.
Later, the five-year-old prince was given the task of filling a wheelbarrow with builders’ sand and he focused on the job, diligently shovelling the material before wheeling the barrow himself.
Kate watched over her son, telling him to shovel in a “bit more” and when the barrow was a quarter full, Louis wheeled it away to help volunteers building a path and made a number of runs.
The young royals beavered away helping renovate the 3rd Upton Scouts Hut as the adults reset a path, dug a new soakaway, sanded and revarnished a door, screwed together planters and created a mural as a lasting legacy of their work.
Louis and Charlotte, aged eight, painted the brick base of a planter with masonry paint and as the young prince sploshed it about, his sister told him: “You’ve got paint in your hair! Louis, look at me! Look at me!”
He carried on regardless and his sister added: “You’ve got to wipe it.”
One volunteer asked Louis: “You might want to be a painter when you grow up?” but hilariously Louis replied: “No, a fighter pilot.”
Before leaving, Louis was treated to a “smore” – a marshmallow-and-chocolate biscuit sandwich – as the youngster roasted marshmallows over a brazier.
William smiled and said: “You won’t hear a peep out of him now for about 20 minutes.”
Little Louis staggered around after taking a bite, as he enjoyed the moment, and bumped into his sister.
Kensington Palace described the event as Louis’ first royal engagement, although he has attended a number or high-profile royal events it is thought the Slough visit was the first time the prince has actively engaged with the public.
Royal fans went wild for the behind the scenes footage, with one person writing: "The Kensington Palace staff has done a great job on the social media over the coronation week. Thank you for sharing this to us. It was a very delightful moment to see all the royal family members."
Another said: "Thank you for that lovely video. It was a truly wonderful and joyous weekend. God Save The King! God Bless The Prince and Princess of Wales and their lovely children."
And a third commented: "Love the behind the scenes footage! Thank you for sharing. Long live the King!"
