Trooping the Colour is one of the most anticipated events in the British royal calendar and annually draws a large proportion of the royal family to Buckingham Palace.This year the majestic ceremony will take place on 14 June, officially celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's 88th birthday.

Given that Trooping the Colour is a renowned family affair, many royal watchers are hoping to see Prince George at the celebration on Saturday.

If George does make his Trooping the Colour debut on Saturday, he will be younger than his father Prince William was when he first joined the celebrations in 1984.

At the age of two, and accompanied by his parents Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, William delighted royal fans when he appeared on the palace balcony. Two years later, a one-year-old Prince Harry sat in his mother's arms for his first Trooping the Colour.

George's parents Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, may decide to wait until he is older before taking him to the ceremony, however.
