The Queen is celebrating her official birthday in London this morning with the annual Trooping the Colour march along Horse Guards Parade in London.

The monarch, who turned 89 this year, was taken past cheering crowds in a horse-drawn carriage alongside husband Prince Philip, wearing full bearskin hat and accompanying red tunic which he is entitled to wear as he is Colonel of the Welsh Guards and Grenadier Guards.

Price Harry, also dressed in full military regalia, was seen in another horse drawn carriage along with the Duchess of Cambridge, making her first appearance since giving birth to Princess Charlotte last month.

No Prince George on the balcony for the Queen's return from Horse Guards. Maybe he will come out with his dad for the fly past.

The Queen looks particularly happy and pleased today. Although a sunny day is always nice for Trooping the Colour, the brightness of the uniforms look particularly striking against the dull grey today.

James was seen peeking out of a window watching as well. Nice to see them there.

I am so pleased Louise and James are there without their parents.

James' suit is so cute.

Lovely to see the Queen and her 3 future heirs alongside!

James and Louise both looked adorable, great that they were there even though their parents were in Stockholm!

I loved that James was the one who came out with The Queen. One proud young man for his first time on the balcony. Of course the coverage was all about it being George's but it was nice to see James with his grandparents and Harry seemed very interested in James as well.

I think it was a lovely move to make Louise and James appear at the balcony: it is as though they replaced their parents today...

I knew Prince George would enjoy his first balcony appearance and he was very interested in pointing out things to his mum and dad. I get the sense George knows who he is and he waves like he know that he's a prince.

The Queen and Prince Philip really looked after James and Louise.

Well...So much for a certain Wedding in Sweden, as the appearance of Four Generations on the Balcony just became the big Royal News of the day.

He certainly took it in his stride didn't he? And I loved how Her Majesty was escorted out by her Grandson. Goodness James certainly looks like Edward now.

I need a nap before the festivities get going in Sweden, but I'll be back a bit later on. :)

Loved seeing George on the balcony. I read on twitter that his little outfit was an heirloom. It was previously worn by Prince William on his first balcony appearance in 1984.
