In the 18th century, guards from the royal palaces assembled daily on Horse Guards to "troop the colours" and in 1748 it was announced that the parade would also mark the Sovereign's official birthday.

Prince George wore a smart white shirt for the occasion, with his blonde hair tidily brushed to one side, while his younger sister Charlotte sported a cute baby blue dress for the occasion, matching her mother Kate Middleton who wore a similar ensemble.

The day's proceedings closed with an RAF flypast, which was watched by members of the royal family from Buckingham Palace's balcony.

The duchess and her husband enjoyed a carriage procession to the event with other members of the royal family before they all watched the spectacle from Wellington's old office.

Not even habitual scene-stealers, Prince George, nearly 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, could take our eyes away from the American beauty.

Riding in the ceremony for the first time is the Duke of York in his new role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

Meanwhile, Duchess Meghan, who made her very first appearance at the iconic yearly ceremony - looked incredible in a pale-pink Carolina Herrera ensemble, which had a slightly retro feel with a button-down front and open neckline.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex followed suit by horse and carriage together with the Duke of Kent.

"I'm quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well", he said.
