Thousands in London for Trooping the Colour spectacle

Prince Harry Duke of Sussex and Meghan Duchess of Sussex during Trooping The Colour

Tens of thousands of Royal fans flocked to Buckingham Palace and the Mall to catch a glimpse of the pomp and pageantry surrounding the celebration for Queen Elizabeth.

Her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, attended the event with her previous year, but was absent today.

Kate, taking a break from her maternity leave with Prince Louis after his April 23 birth, wore an Alexander McQueen dress with Juliette Botterill fascinator.

Meghan wore a simple peach dress by Carolina Herrera, but its off-the-shoulder style was a bit too cocktail-y for such an important military event in which shoulders are usually covered.

He retired from public duties previous year and will celebrate his 97th birthday tomorrow.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have joined the Queen for the Trooping the Colour parade to mark her 92nd birthday.

The young royal took a tumble up on the Buckingham Palace balcony while celebrating Queen Elizabeth's birthday.

The entire royal family gathered together on the balcony to watch the iconic fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

Is Meghan Markle having second thoughts about joining the royal family? Since her 2011 Trooping the Colour debut, Kate Middleton has never worn short sleeves, and neither did Princess Diana.

The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to dazzling crowds with her flawless outfits.

Also riding in the ceremony for the first time was the Duke of York in his new role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards. The Duchess travelled to the Horse Guards Parade in a horse-drawn carriage alongside Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew.

However, the Buckingham Palace balcony appearance after the parade wasn't her first - as royal watchers will recall, she and Wills exchanged a kiss at that exact spot on their wedding day.

A Sikh Coldstream Guards soldier was the first to wear a turban during the Trooping the Colour parade, which marks the queen's official birthday.

He said: "I'm quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well".
