More than 25,000 people viewed the photo Jon Kay uploaded of the royals at Westminster Abbey, demonstrating that little Louis, the son of Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, was suddenly nowhere to be seen.
Thankfully, he reappeared, and Jon updated his Twitter account with another photo to that effect.
“He’s back. Phew!” the eagle-eyed 53-year-old reassured almost 60,000 followers.
@amandeep86 wrote in the comments that she suspected she understood the reason for his lightning-quick absence and reappearance.
“Most likely….. He needed the toilet. I think all parents will relate to that, hahahaha!” she quipped.

@natpirks chimed in: “They said he’d need a break after a while as he’s only 5, bless him.”
Meanwhile, @JonquilLucy added: “I wondered that – a bit too much for a little one. They will have had someone on hand – a nanny? – to take him away when he was getting bored.”
@sharon_RAROC chuckled: “Oh bless him, he did really well to last as long as he did. I half expected him to go and sit on grandpa’s lap!”
Jon also shared other footage from the special day, tweeting: “‘I’ve been crowning anything that stood still for long enough’ Archbishop of Canterbury tells Huw Edwards he’s been practising for the #Coronation moment with a replica crown.”
The BBC Breakfast star has maintained his enthusiasm for the event, in spite of having an uncomfortable conversation with the head of campaign group Republic earlier in the month.
Its leader, Graham Smith, suggested that the Coronation was “pointless” and too costly, raging: “It’s going to cost us anything between 50 to 100 million pounds.”
However, as many as 300 million people are estimated to be tuning into the event globally, and it’s said to have produced a lucrative income for the country via tourism, as royalists flock to the UK for visits and to purchase memorabilia.
Earlier, hearts melted as Prince Louis held hands with his sister Charlotte at the event, who wore a sparkling silver headband adorned with leaves.
Though Louis might have let out the occasional yawn or sometimes been overwhelmed due to his tender age, he often looked thrilled as his grandfather was crowned.
Prince George seemed absent from the photos of his two siblings, but that was because he was his grandfather’s Page of Honour, and was responsible for carrying the train down the aisle.
