Every June, the British celebrate the Trooping of the Color. While this centuries-old event is steeped in tradition and is a celebration of Queen Elizabeth's second birthday, it's a more recent royal that's started absolutely stealing the show.
MUST-SEE: What Is Trooping of the Colour?
For us Americans who aren't able to relate to the pomp and circumstance surrounding the big day, we can still enjoy the royals' fashion, especially that of the Duchess of Cambridge. Since the big royal wedding in 2011, Kate Middleton has waved from the balcony at Buckingham Palace and graced millions with her timeless style, which is sometimes very reminiscent of the beloved Princess Diana.
Kate gives us a peek into her seemingly endless wardrobe, always dazzling the press with what she's wearing that day, but the Trooping of the Colour is different. Why? Because it means we're guaranteed a glimpse of her two little cherubs, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who, may we just say, are two little fashion trendsetters already.
As you scroll through, you'll notice that poor Prince William doesn't seem to have much of a choice when it comes to dressing for the day. Fortunately, Kate's fashion-forward choices and impressive hats and fascinators prove to be enough intrigue for the both of them.
The now-married royal couple made their Trooping of the Color debut in 2011 as she and Prince William had wed only a few weeks earlier on April 29, 2011. Kate was already beginning to show off her chic style in a black hat and ivory jacket.
