Relive the Royal Moment: Trooping the Colour

After a short hiatus, Call Me Kate is back for the summer bringing you all the scoop on the Duchess of Cambridge!

In honor of Trooping the Colour tomorrow and (fingers crossed!) a Prince George appearance, I want to look back at all of Kate’s past Trooping the Colour looks!

In case you didn’t know, Trooping the Colour is an event that marks Queen Elizabeth’s official birthday! The event takes place on Horse Guards Parade which is located near Whitehall. It is also close to St. James’s Park. This even does not disappoint. It is full of pomp and circumstance!

It was confirmed today that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be attending tomorrow morning. It is also speculated that Prince George will make an appearance! This has not been confirmed but all royal fans have their fingers crossed! 🙂

Duchess Catherine has attended this event four times and this year will mark her 5th summer as part of the royal family in attendance. Her first Trooping the Colour was in June 2011, shortly after she and William were married in April.

Let’s travel back and take a look at all of Kate’s beautiful attire worn to Trooping the Colour…

This was a year unlike any before– Kate was 8 months pregnant with George during her third appearance at Trooping the Colour. She chose a beautiful pink Alexander McQueen coat dress for the occasion and a hat by Jane Corbett.

One of the reasons I love Trooping the Colour so much is that we get to see the “Royal trio.” Harry and William are such cute siblings and I really love that they are such close brothers.
