Trooping the Colour


As it does every year to mark Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, the Trooping The Colour celebration took place in London recently.

A true spectacle of pomp and ceremony, all the usual royal suspects were there: Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice; 95-years-and-still-going-strong Philip; Charles and Camilla; the loveably rougish Harry, as well as the lesser known likes of Prince Michael of Kent.

But the true shining stars of the big Windsor day out were undoubtedly Wills and Kate and their totes adorbs children Prince George, 3, and one-year-old Princess Charlotte.

However, one individual who isn't as blinded by the Cambridges' gloss as the rest of us is evidently the woman-of-the-hour herself, Queen Elizabeth.

Indeed, the 90-year-old reigning monarch was quick to scold her grandson when she caught him on the doss.

Yes – instead of waving to the gathered masses from their Buckingham Palace balcony, Prince William at one stage opted to hunker down alongside his young son.

Until, that is, granny tapped him on the shoulder and instructed him to stand up.

As for Wills – well, he looks decidedly unimpressed. In fact, we dare say his royal sulk has just about made our day.

The cherry on the top? That would be little George's subtle-but-deadly face-palm…


Not long over a month after giving birth, Kate Middleton is set to make her debut public appearance as a mother of two.

The annual Trooping the Colour ceremony will be in full swing tomorrow afternoon to celebrate the Queen’s 89th birthday (even though her actual birthday was in April).

The festivities mean that the Royal family will be out in full force, with Prince Charles and Prince William riding horses alongside Princess Anne as part of the procession. Kate will ride alongside Harry in a horse-drawn carriage.

A source had previously told OK US that the Queen “thinks a month is more than enough time for Kate to take off before she should return to performing her royal duties.”

The Duchess of Cambridge’s maternity leave this time round is even shorter than the 39 days she took off from her royal duties after the birth of Prince George in 2013.

We can’t wait to see the family together and we have no doubt that Kate will look as stunning as ever, even with such a short maternity leave.
