Trooping the Colour is a highlight in the royal, and is one of the few times of the year we get to see the whole family together.

The most famous moment of the celebrations, which mark the Queen’s official birthday. is when they all come together on the Buckingham Palace balcony to wave to well-wishers and watch the flypast.

The arrival of little royals – including George, Charlotte and Louis – has brought lots of cute moments, but also means the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have to be mum and dad while enjoying the special moment.

While things normally run smoothly, Prince William’s parenting trick appeared to get him in trouble with the Queen at 2016 event.

As Princess Charlotte, who was making her Trooping the Colour debut, was held by her mum Kate, Wills was in charge of looking after George.

The eldest Cambridge kid stood at the front looking over the thousands of people gathered below – and dad Wills crouched down to speak to him.

However granny clearly wasn’t impressed, and appeared to say “Stand up William”.

The prince did as he was told and rose immediately, looking rather sheepish.

Oh dear…

It was an extra special Trooping the Colour, as it was the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Wills was dressed in his full military uniform, while Kate looked pretty in a baby pink coat and matching hat.

George, who loves planes, looked keen to watch the display and even his sister – who had just celebrated her first birthday – wasn’t scared by the number amount of news.

Kate pointed up at the sky as she held the little princess in her arms and gestured towards the planes.

This year’s Trooping the Colour was cancelled due to the coronavirus lockdown, however a small military ceremony is being held at Windsor Castle.

Buckingham Palace confirmed their plans yesterday, announcing that Her Majesty will take two royal salutes from the Welsh Guards on Saturday.

The ceremony will be carried out by a detachment from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, whose colour – or military flag – was due to be trooped this year at the Queen’s Birthday Parade on Horse Guards in Whitehall.

Stationed at Windsor Castle, they have played a key role in the military response to the Covid-19 pandemic over the past few months.

When the Queen arrives at the castle’s quadrangle she will receive a royal salute which will be followed by a set of military drills and a musical performance by a Band of the Household Division.

The ceremony, which will last about 20 minutes, will be shown on the BBC.
