0

Princess Beatrice today looked glamourous as she watched the Trooping the Colour festivities on the first day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

As she stood in the Major General’s office, Princess Beatrice, 33, seemed to be in good spirits, pointing at the festivities as they unfolded while standing with Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis.

The royal sported a colourful recycled blue floral Vampire’s Wife dress for the event celebrating her grandmother’s official birthday.

Princess Beatrice paired her look with a pearl headband and kept her hair loose and relaxed, wavy as it cascaded around her shoulders.

The Trooping the Colour procession today included at least 250 horses and hundreds of military musicians with the parade route extending from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and back again.

Traditionally, the Queen, 96, takes the salute and inspects the troops for the Birthday Parade, but after months of mobility trouble, passed the responsibility to her son and first-in-line to the throne, Prince Charles, 73, while the colour was trooped by the 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, wowed as she sat in a carriage waving at crowds in a £3,000 recycled white Alexander McQueen coat dress with a Philip Treacy hat alongside the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, who wore a sky blue Bruce Oldfield outfit and Princess Charlotte, seven, Prince Louis, four, and Prince George, eight- with all three children dressed in outfits to fit a light blue, navy and white colour scheme.

They were followed by the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their daughter Lady Louise and son James, Viscount Severn, travelled along the parade route in carriages to the Major General’s Office, which overlooks the Whitehall parade ground, to watch the rest of the event.

And in the third carriage were the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence. Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Anne rode on horses during the traditional carriage procession with the Prince of Wales on George, the Duke of Cambridge on Derby and the Princess Royal on Sir John. 

The procession left Buckingham Palace ahead of Trooping the Colour, also known as the Birthday Parade, at the start of festivities.

As Kate, Camilla and the children left in their carriage, a riding groom had an issue with her horse which refused to move. The carriage had to swerve to avoid the animal which was eventually persuaded to join the procession.

The Cambridge children bowed their heads when the national anthem was played on their arrival into Horse Guards Parade. George was dressed in a navy suit, white shirt and blue tie for the occasion, while Louis was wearing a sailor-style white and navy top echoing an outfit worn by his father at the 1985 Trooping event.

Charlotte’s hair was down, dressed up with two fine plaits fastened with a blue ribbon, and she wore a cornflower dress. She peered out of the central window at Horse Guards Parade as Louis pointed out towards the ceremony. 

The Prince of Wales went ahead of the Duke of Cambridge and the Princess Royal as they rode diagonally across the forecourt and under the arches of Horse Guards. Charles wore his scarlet Colonel of the Welsh Guards uniform and green thistle sash riding a horse named George.

William rode on Derby in his Irish Guards uniform and Anne on a horse named Sir John in her Colonel of the Blues and Royals uniform as part of the colourful parade.

Thousands of people draped in Union Jack flags, party hats and plastic tiaras lined the Mall in the warm sunshine today. Some of those at the front brought camping chairs, having arrived over the past few days to get the best spot, and spirits were high as members of the public chatted and joked with police maintaining the perimeter.

However, police then swooped on four intruders tried to smash through security on The Mall. Two of the protesters – whose cause is not currently known – were able to sit in the middle of the road as the marching band approached. Officers hauled them out of the way as the musicians walked by them, avoiding them completely.

The Metropolitan Police said: ‘The viewing areas in central London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are now full. To avoid the disappointment of not being able to enter the viewing areas please avoid the area.’

It comes as Prince Harry and Meghan are set to join senior royals at an official engagement for the first time in more than two years. The Sussexes are also set to bring along three-year-old Archie and Lilibet, nearly one, for the public family reunion – and the children are likely to meet their cousins George, Charlotte and Louis at last.

Lilibet has never been introduced to her royal relatives, while Archie has not been in the UK since he was six months old. But there is no invitation for shamed Prince Andrew even in a private capacity after his fall from grace.

Later on today, the Queen’s second appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony will be for the RAF flypast, which will see some 71 aircraft soar over The Mall in a historic display featuring Spitfires, Red Arrow Hawks and a Lancaster bomber.

The jaw-dropping show will feature more than three times the number of aircraft which took part in the Queen’s last birthday parade flypast in central London in 2019.

They will take off from military bases around the UK before joining holding patterns around the south-east of England.

The aircraft will then fly directly down the length of The Mall before the first batch reach Buckingham Palace at 1pm.

Princess Beatrice’s appearance in the Trooping the Colour parade came after her sister Eugenie this morning wished her ‘dear followers’ a happy Jubilee ahead of today’s celebrations and encouraged them to share photographs and videos which she could repost on her page.

Underneath the message, shared on her story, was a video posted to the Royal Family’s page marking the monarch’s life of service, including a sweet montage of photos from Her Majesty’s life from being a young girl to today.

‘On the first day of the Platinum Jubilee weekend and the anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation, we look back on Her Majesty’s life of service from her time as a young Princess supporting the war effort to her extraordinary commitment to her role as Monarch.’

While Eugenie is not a working royal she has been vocal in support of her grandmother ahead of the historic weekend.

Yesterday, she paid a moving personal tribute to her ‘grannie’ the Queen.

Writing in The Spectator magazine, said she hoped her one-year-old son August would grow to have the Queen’s ‘patience, her calmness and her kindness while always being able to laugh at himself and keep a twinkle in his eye’.

She described the nation’s longest-reigning monarch as having transcended time and been ‘a constant rock for so many’.

Reflecting on her ‘own special little family’ with the arrival of August, who was born in February last year, Eugenie said: ‘I think of my grannie and what she has stood for, for so many people and for our family during these 70 years.

‘I’d love Augie to have her patience, her calmness and her kindness, while always being able to laugh at himself and keep a twinkle in his eye.’

In the piece entitled ‘My pride in Grannie’, the princess said: ‘Seventy years is really quite something, isn’t it?

‘The Jubilee stands as a testimony to a woman who has transcended time and has been that constant rock for so many when the world can feel so fragile.’
