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.

Earlier in the day, adorable Prince George was spotted looking on from a balcony giggling and sticking his tongue out.

The toddler was watching the event in the company of his nanny from Buckingham Palace.
