Duchess Kate Wears Erdem for Trooping the Colour

Duchess Kate joined the royal family today for Trooping the Colour. The annual parade officially celebrates the Queen's birthday. Although the Queen's actual birthday is on 21 April, it has long been tradition to celebrate the Sovereigns' birthday publicly on a day in the summer.

Kate travelled by carriage with Camilla and Prince Harry in an open landau. Camilla and Kate look very coordinated.

More than 1,600 officers and soldiers took part in the event. Prince William, who is colonel of the Irish Guards, the Prince of Wales who is colonel of the Welsh Guards, the Duke of Kent, colonel of the Scot Guards and the Princess Royal, Colonel of the Blues and Royals.

Ace Royal photographer Mark Stewart shared a photo via Twitter of Buckingham Palace looking wonderful in the sunshine this morning.

Her Majesty is wearing the same Angela Kelly outfit she wore to William and Kate's wedding. Prince Philip was also in attendance, it is exactly a week since he left hospital. Good to see him back.

This year is the flag of 1st Batallion Coldsream Guards. There were 241 horses on parade, with 290 musicians who marched and played on. A look at the Regiment tacking up in preparation for the parade.

The Royals appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace where they watched a flypast.
