Every June, the British celebrate the Trooping of the Colour. While this event is in honor of Queen Elizabeth's birthday (which is actually in April, though the festivities are held a little later to take advantage of the nicer weather), it's Kate Middleton and her dazzling style that have absolutely stolen the show. And now that she's given birth to an adorable trio of little ones, Kate and her family are truly the reason we pay attention on the big day.
We don't really have a comparable event in America, which is probably why we love tuning in to the Trooping of the Colour. This tradition gives us an excuse to marvel at all the pomp and circumstance, and most importantly, to gawk at the impressive fashion and fascinators on display. One of our favorite royals to watch is 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's.
Kate gives us a peek into her seemingly endless wardrobe, always dazzling the press with what she's wearing that day. However, 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 already two little fashion trendsetters. Prince Louis has yet to make his Trooping of the Colour debut, but there's always next year!
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 eye-catching enough for the both of them.
Check out Kate's outfits at every Trooping of the Colour, and don't miss Prince George's and Princess Charlotte's balcony debuts.
