Prince George didn't want to miss out on seeing the grand ceremony

Kate, who made her first public appearance since the birth of her and William's daughter Princess Charlotte at the majestic ceremony, was elegant in a powder blue and white patterned outfit by designer Catherine Walker.

The Queen, meanwhile, was dressed in a light peach ensemble and was seated alongside her husband the Duke of Edinburgh - who turned 94 just days before - in the Ascot Landau carriage as they set off from Buckingham Palace.

Trooping the Colour is one of the most anticipated events in the British royal calendar, and it annually draws a large proportion of the royal family to Buckingham Palace.The Queen first attended Trooping the Colour in 1947 when she was 21.

William and Kate welcomed their second child, Princess Charlotte, on 2 May. Naturally, the royal couple left the six-week-old at home while they enjoyed the celebrations.

Last year the Duchess attended the celebration without Prince George, who at the time was 11 months old. The previous year, a heavily pregnant Kate took part in the ceremony as her last public appearance before giving birth to George on 22 July.
