The entire royal family has turned out in London for a spectacular military parade to mark the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

Princess Charlotte, 4, appeared to enjoy the rest of the parade, clapping alongside her brother Prince George and Savannah Phillips, their cousin.

He retired from public duties past year and will celebrate his 97th birthday tomorrow.

And royal fans were delighted to see Markle and Prince Harry (The Duke and Duchess of Sussex) join her on the famous balcony.

While also taking part was the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, who will fire a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark the Queen's official birthday. In attendance included Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as the newlyweds, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her actual birthday is April 21 but the country always celebrates in June. The Duchess made sure to have her own style stand out while attending her very first Trooping the Colour parade.

The Queen cut a lonely figure as she attended Trooping the Colour alone, without Prince Phillip by her side. "HRH rode on a horse from the Royal Mews called Elizabeth", shared the royal family's official Twitter account.

Or rather, why isn't Prince Harry on horseback?

Following her recent eye operation to remove a cataract, the Queen showed no ill effects and was not wearing sunglasses as she has at some outdoor events.

The royals watched a fly-past undertaken by the Royal Air Force.

Meghan and her husband, 33, who was kitted out in his full ceremonial Blues and Royals uniform a la his wedding day three weeks ago, waved to crowds in the Mall.

The ceremony culminates with a magnificent balcony appearance by the Royal Family. Such was the case during Meghan and Harry's return to Buckingham Palace, when she could be seen trying to keep her hair in some semblance of order.
