'Trooping the color' in London for queen's official birthday

Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, Wills and Kate's second child after Prince George.

As usual, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the show at the annual Trooping the Colour parade in London on Saturday.

The pair joined their parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and other royals for the event at Buckingham Palace.

Earlier in the day, the Queen, who wore a Stewart Parvin ensemble, issued a statement expressing sorrow over the "terrible tragedies" in London and Manchester over the last few weeks.

The interesting fact is that her Majesty's actual birth date is April 21, but the grand military parade is rather an extravagant way of celebrating each British monarch's official birthday.

As People reports, the Queen wore a powder-blue Stewart Parvin outfit and matching Philip Somerville-designed hat, along with her Brigade of Guards Badge, which she wears for each year's parade.

Princess Anne, Prince William and the heir to the throne, Prince Charles, rode in the parade on horseback.

Putting aside thoughts of her anniversary, marked with the pomp and pageantry of the Trooping the Colour ceremony, the head of state said everyone was "determined" to support all those rebuilding their lives. This year, however, it is hard to escape a very' sombre national mood.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 17: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh travel in the royal carriage during the annual Trooping The Colour parade on June 17, 2017 in London, England.

The Queen continued: "Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity".

Dressed in his full uniform - including a bearskin - one soldier fell forward out of his formation at the Horse Guards Parade at St Jame's Park marking the Queen's official birthday.
