I could kind of find all the men in your list in the photograph of the balcony except the Earl of Wessex. I also didn't see Sophie or Louise-and Sophie's green dress was eye-catching. But James certainly was there, so not sure where the rest of the Wessex family were during the flypast.

Earl, not count of Wessex

I think they just numbered the ones you could see in the photo (though in fairness to Tom you could see him). They did say in the article there was more then 40 royals on the balcony, they just didn't number them. You see photos of Louise and her mother later in the article.

In that photo I couldn't find any sign of any Wessex but James. But there is a later photo of Sophie and Louise. Right, she is hard to miss in that green. Edward though I am surprised was not near his mother some where like his other siblings.

As many as were on the balcony this time, there have been more in the past. To my eye, that balcony looks significantly more stuffed for King George V’s Silver Jubilee In 1935. The Queen was among that number, albeit as a child, so this was part of what must have set her understanding of what a balcony appearance could be as a special time for the extended family.

Notice also the large number of people in the windows one level up.

Re: the 1935 balcony above - it looks like fewer than 20 adults there.

It's not great detail but they look to me to be the King & Queen, their children's families and possibly the King's sisters with their husbands.

Sophie, Edward and Louise were right at the back nearly inside the double doors. James made it out to the front however the rest of his family were behind the York’s and Meghan and Harry.

Here's a short clip of the interaction between Prince Louis and grandpa Charles. It's too cute.

Exactly. I'd say the one who could have done something about it is Timothy, there seemed to be quite some room behind Charles and Camilla. Had Timothy moved closer to the Cambridges the Wessexes would havr had more space.

All in all it was interesting how little coordination there seemed to be. It was clear that William decided at the spot to go to the left (for us viewers) this time whil Catherine was originally heading for the right where they stood last year.

Great photos from yesterday, thank you to everyone who shared them! Agree that little Louis definitely stole the show - he seems like a very sociable and interactive little one. It was really sweet to see him waving at Charles - it seems that all of Charles's grandchildren are close to him, which is lovely. It was also nice that Jack Brooksbank and Tom Kingston were both present at Trooping this year.
I hope Albert Windsor's arm recovers - he's grown up so much! It would be nice to see Mia with her Phillips and Cambridge cousins, though the Tindalls don't seem to be regulars at Trooping anymore. Is this Isla's first time in attending the ceremony? I don't remember seeing her on the balcony at any previous years.

To answer my own question: you're right, Google tells me Isla appeared on the balcony last year and firstly in 2017. Don't know why I thought this was her first time!

In our ongoing annual game of 'Where's Waldo', Sophie and Louise are standing behind Jack Brooksbank. It looks like Edward is standing behind and between Princesses Anne and Eugenie.

The best display of the year! I love that the Queen has all her family around her and that she shares out the views to young and old. It's a happy celebration. We see her decendants many times each year so the fact that they are the ones slightly squashed is fine to me.
I wonder how the young chappy broke his arm? The boy looks more similar to the age of James so perhaps it's Albert and not the youngest brother as has been reported?.

Watch as The Duke of York discusses his earliest memories of The Queen’s Birthday Parade and his new role as Colonel of the @GrenadierGds - a role he took over from The Duke of Edinburgh in 2017.

I have a question regarding this year's Trooping. Usually when travelling back to the palace, the Queen stops at the gates and takes salute again no.. This time she drive in straight. No getting down and taking salute. Was there a change in procedure? I checked the last 6 pages but couldn't find any discussion regarding this

I noticed that as well, not sure why.
I wondered about security, she was in an enclosed coach usually she travels in one of the smaller coaches. The others were in open coaches so that is maybe red herring.

I also noticed that the Queen did not take a salute....I thought maybe her age in getting in and out of the carriage as well as security. The Queen is amazing!
