The Royals attended the Trooping Colour Parade on Saturday, one of the most high profile events in the Royal calendar. This prestigious event dates back to Charles II in the 17th century where soldiers colours were trooped to recognise their battle unit. It now marks the celebration of the Queens brithday. Yesterday was in celebration of the Queen turning 92 in April. The fashion is always a stand out at this event. Heres a look at what the Royals wore this year.
Newlywed Meghan Markle attended her first Trooping parade in a pale pink off the shoulder dress. This pencil dress was the same colour she wore to her first Royal engagement last month at the celebration of her father in law, Prince Charles's birthday. The Carolina Herrera number broke all the Royal fashion protocol, all the ladies of the Royal family went with a long sleeve dress. During the 7 Trouping Prades Kate Middleton has attended she has never worn short sleeve, neither did Princess Diana.
Kate Middleton revealed her amazing post-baby body, returning from maternity leave after having prince Louis on April 23rd, to attend the prestigious event. She went with her go-to designer for royal occasions, Alexander McQueen in a gorgeous pale blue dress. Juliette Botterill designed the matching fascinator.
Camilla arrived with Kate in the same carriage in the same colour pale blue, silk dress and coat. This stunning outfit was designed by Bruce Oldfield and a matching blue hat which was designed by Phillip Treacy.
The Queen also wore blue, but a much brighter blue compared to both Kate and Camilla. Stuart Parvin designed her long sleeve coat, and the dress and her matching colour hat was an Angela Kelly number. She has never missed a Trooping parade, except for in 1955 due to a national rail strike.
