hellomagazine.com

Prince George was excited and delighted in equal measures to be taking part in this year's Trooping the Colour, which celebrates his great-grandmother the Queen's 89th birthday. The adorable tot was seen enjoying the stunning display of military tradition, pomp and pageantry from a window of Buckingham Palace, accompanied by his nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

The little Prince enthusiastically looked on to see his mother The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, riding in a carriage with the Duchess of Cornwall and his father Prince William riding a horse alongside Princess Anne and Prince Charles.

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.

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.

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.
