The royal rocked a beautiful Vampire's Wife floral dress for the special event as she joined her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi to watch the military procession that departs from Buckingham Palace and travels along the Mall to Horse Guards Parade and back again. Keeping a low profile, Beatrice wasn't among the senior royals on the balcony and was instead spotted in the background alongside Meghan Markle.

Thursday's appearance marks the first time Beatrice has appeared at the special event, which officially kicked off the Queen's Platinum Jubilee bank holiday celebrations, since 2019.

Both 2020 and 2021 saw a pared-back Trooping the Colour due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning strict guidelines had to be followed. Beatrice's last Trooping the Colour saw her wearing a stunning pink dress with black lace detail and a floral headpiece by milliner Judy Bentinck.

 
 

Beatrice did not join the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the flypast as Her Majesty has chosen to appear with a reduced number of her relatives for the key moment.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: "After careful consideration, The Queen has decided this year's traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2 June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen."

In the past, royal family members including Prince William, Prince Charles and Princess Anne have participated on horseback.
