Saturday 9 June will play host to Trooping the Colour 2018, an annual pomp and pageantry celebration held in honour of the Queen’s official birthday.

For the occasion, the entire royal family (reportedly including Meghan Markle and Prince Louis) will gather on the Buckingham Palace balcony at 1pm to watch a military fly-by, giving monarchy fans globally a chance to see the family decked out in their finery.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been attending the event for years now. Her first appearance at the ceremony was in 2011 – two months after her Westminster Abbey wedding to Prince William. Her skin glowing from her honeymoon, the then-29-year-old was applauded for her on-point attire. Kate wore a double-breasted Alexander McQueen coat with a black hat and her sapphire engagement ring.

But what Kate’s worn to this annual event is by no means the only outfit worth talking about. From the Queen’s ‘green screen’ outfit to Princess Diana’s iconic baby blue smocked look she wore while pregnant with Prince Harry in 1984, see how many of these royal get-ups you recall…
