The DoE certainly seemed to me to be breathing very hard after he got onto the dais. He was saluting during the national anthem and he was puffing as if he'd just run from BP. He just didn't look well at all at that point.

The whole family is on the balcony as we speak.

Lady Louise is on the balcony in a purple outfit. Too cute. No James though, not a surprise really.

I do love the pomp of it all, no one does it like the British.

Interestingly, the Duke of Edinburgh swapped his bearskin for a different cap at some point (perhaps a bearskin wouldn't fit in the coach).

Pomp and ceremony: Royal family reunite in magnificent style for Trooping the Colour on Queen's official birthday
Quote:
The royal family were reunited in magnificent style today as Prince Philip looked in good spirits at his first major event since he was hospitalised during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Kate was radiant in a silver-grey Erdem dress and avant-garde Jane Corbett hat, while Camilla wore a baby blue suit and sparkling choker for the Queen's official birthday in Horse Guards Parade. It was the Duke of Edinburgh's first major public engagement since he spent a week in hospital with a bladder infection and was forced to miss part of the Jubilee event. The Queen brought extra cheer to the occasion despite the gloomy weather in a primrose yellow coat and dress by Angela Kelly with matching hat, displaying her Brigade of Guards brooch.
The crowd in the Mall is quite huge!

There are so many people there, wow. Impressive. What always impresses me is how controlled the crowds are, the police do a very good job.

Trooping the Colour is always a spectacular event, but I didn't expect crowds this big. The Jubilee spirit is still well and alive!
Love the old footage; I've seen a lot of pictures but never videos of the old Trooping the Colour ceremonies (1953 and 1977).

Can't wait for the fly past, especially Voyager's appearance!

The Queen and Prince Philip on the balcony!
The Wales Family, the Yorks too. The Earl and Countess of Wessex, Lady Louise (who is in starring position right now, in the centre), and others.

Yes!!!! That's a very cute moment when Lady Louise suddenly went in between the Queen & Prince Philip Also very nice to see the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Cornwall made some jokes.

How cute is she? And little James was there too! Hadn't noticed him until everyone left.

Yes! He's so tiny you couldn't really see him until most grown ups left the balcony - and he was still there (and by the looks of it, didn't want to leave at all).

I don't think that was James, because if he was there he would stay next to his mother or father. I think it's someone of Kent's or Gloucester's kids

Looks like there's a bit of rain falling,I'm glad that it didn't spoil the earlier parts of Trooping the Colour.

The little boy on the balcony we seen at the end was lord Nicholas Windsor son lady Nicholas was the blonde lady you could see leading him inside. On another note so glad Ella Windsor was there today I was starting to think she hard
vanished off the face of the earth.

Lady Louise didn't want to stand with her parents either.
You are right though; it wasn't James - it was the young Lord Nicholas Windsor (thanks to angela for identifying him!).

I think you may be right. This little tyke had a lot of blonde hair. James has darker hair.

Plus if James was taking his time leaving the balcony, Edward or Sophie would have retrieved him, not leave one of the cousins to do it.

Camilla, Kate and Harry were giggling almost the whole time they were in the carriage together. They're a bit of a dynamic trio.

Picture of the Royal Family on the balcony.
And extended Royal Family.

Well, this was certainly not a scaled down appearance.

The three of them did have a great time, didn't they?
