When the royal family gathers on the balcony at Trooping the Colour, there's always some pretty great candid moments, like Prince Louis waving to the crowd and, of course, who could forget last year when Prince George's cousin Savannah Phillips covered his mouth? (FYI, they were separated on the balcony this time around.) The tradition continued this year when Prince William was spotted fixing George's hair in the middle of the fly past.

It was a sweet moment for the father and son. Naturally, George is unbothered.
