Kate Middleton joined the British royal family on Saturday for her final public appearance before the birth of her royal baby. Heavily pregnant, Kate attended the Trooping the Colour parade at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Queen's official birthday. This marked her last public engagement before beginning her maternity leave. Kate elegantly dressed her baby bump in a light pink coat by Alexander McQueen and wore a hat of a similar hue designed by couture milliner Jane Corbett.

As her July due date approaches, the Duchess joined her brother-in-law Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cornwall in the leading carriage as the procession commenced. Prince Andrew, along with his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, followed. They were in front of The Earl and Countess of Wessex and their daughter Lady Louise Windsor.

The Queen, accompanied in the Glass coach by her cousin, the Duke of Kent, led the procession. The Duke of Edinburgh was notably absent, still recovering in hospital. Prince Charles, Prince William, and the Princess Royal rode on horseback throughout the procession, acting as the royal colonels. The royal family then gathered on the palace balcony to watch the spectacular flypast, concluding the event.
