Trooping The Colour, also known as The Queen's Birthday Parade, is a military ceremony tradition that dates back to the early 18th century.

Although the rain poured down on the Royal Family, Kate (33) beamed as she was greeted with loud cheers from the hundreds of people who lined the streets.

The stylish mum-of-two opted for a floral dress coat by Catherine Walker and a modern white hat by Lock & Co for the occasion.
