Royal Birthday Celebrations: Trooping the Colour

12 Jun

This past weekend, two royal birthdays were celebrated in London. Friday, June 10, 2011 was Prince Philip’s 90th, and Saturday, June 11th was the OFFICIAL birthday celebration of the Queen. Her actual birthday is April 21st (same as mine!). I had the pleasure of attending the Trooping the Colour parade last summer!

Guest of honor at Trooping the Colour, her Majesty, the Queen:

However, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, stole the show as she has been since the Royal Wedding this past April 29th. Kate looked stunning in an ivory coat.

Aside from the Queen and Kate, Prince William and Harry were also in attendance:

Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, Camilla, and Kate

The big fashion news from Prince Philip’s celebration was the “recycled” coat Kate wore. She changed it up by wearing a different hat and dress underneath. I love that she re-wears clothing to events, especially because that is the “commoner” thing to do!
