On Saturday morning, Kate joined the royal matriarch on a ceremonial carriage ride with brother-in-law Prince Harry and mother-in-law Camilla, along the Mall in London.

Kate wore the same Alexander McQueen coat she wore for Charlotte's christening last year, teaming it with a peach Philip Teacy hat, decorated with rosettes.

The Queen made a bold style statement in a vibrant green Stewart Parvin ensemble, with a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan.

Meanwhile little George wore one of William's childhood outfits, a pale blue romper suit which his father appeared in after Trooping the Colour as a toddler in 1984.
