And James making binocular eyes is too cute, and quite looking a normal child as well.

Yes, but Her Majesty is ten years older than His Royal Highness.

The Queen's oldest first cousin was The Hon. Mary Elphinstone (1911-1980), who a niece of the Queen Mother.

Her Majesty's oldest surviving first cousin is Lady Mary Clayton, born in 1917, another niece of the Queen Mother.

Lumutqueen - I was referring to the number of people who declared she would not appear in a carriage, because... well you know. It made me laugh.

And thanks for the Andrew in the suit explanation. I did a quick Getty search and he does tend to wear that tan waistcoat to Trooping. There are also some fun old pics of Edward sans uniform: Search - Getty Images UK: prince andrew, duke of york trooping

Do Zara and Peter ever attend this event? If not, why not? Is it because they aren't "royals"? If and when Beatrice and Eugenie marry, will their spouses and children be welcome to attend?

In the past neither Edward or Andrew wore uniform, but the London Regiment is a TA regiment belonging to the Guards Division (since reorganisation in 2004).

Edward became Royal Honorary Col of the London Regiment in 2011. He is allowed to wear the uniform on this occasion because it is part of the Guards Division.

Andrew has no links to the Guards Division.

I believe Zara is in Germany competing and Peter is working, someone mentioned it in another thread, maybe Cepe. They've attended before on the balcony numerous times.

Here are some more balcony scenes:

And a couple of galleries from Getty Images:

I was wondering if James would attend this year's Trooping the Colour and I'm pleased that he did. He's very cute. I was surprised not to see Lady Helen Taylor and her children on the balcony as they usually attend. It was quite rainy at about 1:10 where I am, I hope the weather didn't affect Trooping the Colour!

Well, this was fun. Getty searches for Peter Phillips trooping and Zara Phillips trooping yielded these: some new and some older gems! Enjoy.

Lady Helen was on the Balcony - she was there in the first appearance whilst the Queen was taking the salute.

I also think it is funny that some people seem to feel that Kate will be hidden away for the last month of her pregnancy. I worked at my job the very day I had my son so riding in a coach and standing on a balcony should not be too strenuous, unless they felt the horses pulling the carriage might get out of control. All the horses seem very well trained so I doubt that was a concern.

Regarding the uniform vs. civvies, I thought it strange that Tim Laurence also was not in uniform since he is retired from a full military career. But if the criteria is based on what divisions are marching, then it makes sense.

And speaking of clothing, I though Sophie's outfit on the balcony closely resembled Kate's pink outfit at last years garden party. Sophie appears to have a jacket on in the carriage but on the balcony you get a better view.
