Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis accompanied the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall in the lead carriage at the Queen's Birthday Parade this morning (2 June).

Trooping the Colour launched the monarch's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in central London, which featured the Cambridge family and Camilla heading up the procession in Horse Guards Parade. Prince George, 8, looked smart in a suit with a blue tie, while Princess Charlotte, 7, wore a cornflower blue dress with a matching ribbon in her hair. Prince Louis, 4, wore a classic white and blue sailor suit.

The young royals - making their carriage debut - were photographed waving to the crowds who have congregated near St James's Park for the celebrations. Royal fans erupted in applause when they arrived.

The Cambridges paid tribute to the Queen by wearing blue, which is rooted in royal history and has long been associated with the monarchy. It's also said to be the favourite colour of the monarch and the one she wears most often.

Kate looked elegant in a white dress with a white and navy hat, while Camilla opted for a mint green frock.

Behind the Cambridges and Camilla were Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex with their children, followed by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Sir Tim Laurence.

Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Royal arrived on horseback, as Charles will deputise for his mother by taking the salute during the parade.

The Queen will salute from Buckingham Palace, and will be joined on the balcony by fellow senior royals.

The colour is being trooped by the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards, and more than 1,200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division will put on a display of military pageantry on Horse Guards Parade, together with hundreds of Army musicians and around 240 horses.

Prince Harry and Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, are joining Harry's family in Horse Guards Parade before joining other royals at Duke of Wellington's former office, where they will watch the procession.
