Prince Louis is his father's little mini-me!

The youngest son of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, appeared with siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte inside a horse-drawn carriage at the Trooping the Color parade Thursday in an adorable sailor suit — one that William himself wore nearly 40 years ago as a child.

In fact, it was during the Trooping the Color in 1985 that the prince first wore that blue get-up. In photos from the event, a 3-year-old William is seen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the rest of the royal family.

The royal family's "balcony moment" is an iconic one at every Trooping the Color, as the family watches the annual Air Force flypast in awe. Louis and his siblings are expected to appear on the balcony this year along with their parents, the queen and other working members of the royal family, creating another picture-esque moment for history books.
