Looks like little Estella gave quite the perfomance on the balcony today! What a little personality!

Fantastic pictures and great to see the little ones. I haven't seen a picture of Margarita Armstong-Jones since her Christening Pictures were released.

Looks like Lady Helen's little girl stole the show though.

OMG Estella Taylor is precious and so pretty just like her mum.
How cute she is in her blue dress.... William is very handsome in his RAF???? uniform. I love how Camilla dressed -- very nice soft colors, and a cool hat. I must be getting old in my ways because suddenly I love these big floral hats on the royal ladies. Camilla's pearls choker necklace!! Gorgeous. Love it, love it!!!!

She doesn't appear to be on the balcony, but she is presumably there due to Arthur Chatto's presence.

Another question, Who are the two people to the left of Princess Anne and Timothy Laurence?

I noticed that William appears to be wearing a Garter Star. Did I miss something? When was he presented with this?

Do they they take turns as to which minor royals are on the balcony? Seems like the people who were there last year aren't there this year. I guess it would be difficult to fit everyone on the balcony.

The Colour is the flag of the regiment. In past times the soldiers were trained to follow that flag in battle by having the flag shown clearly to the soldiers, or troops. Each soldier did need to know which was their colour so that in the turmoil of battle they knew where they should rally in order to be with their own men.

'Trooping the colour' is simply the process of showing the regimental flag or 'colour' to the soldiers or troops.

The French also used to troop their colours and eagles. These colours and eagles were personally presented by the Emperor/King.

Hitler also presented colours to his troops and the SA and SS regiments and those colours were trooped in front of him.

British and Commonwealth Regiments show their "colours" to the queen. Each year a different regiment is asked to troop the colour in front of the Queen. About a month before the ceremony they are presented with a flad, displaying each combat situation that regiment has been in.

They are not actually showing the colours to the Queen but to their own troops. The Queen just happens to be there. Colours were trooped regularly without monarchs present e.g. in the Napoleonic Wars the colours were trooped past each regiment usually weekly if not more often to ensure that the troops knew exactly what there colour was and to lose it in a battle was a disgrace for the regiment. At that time if a regiment lost its colour it would often be disbanded for awhile and the officer in charge sent home in disgrace or put on other duties for a period of time until the disgrace could be made up.

Thanks for all the photos!
It has been nice to see the British Royal family enjoying the event. My personal favourites are Lady Helen Taylor and Countess of Wessex. I wish Princess Michael of Kent recycled one of her better hats. It is always a pleasure to see a truly regal Princess Alexandra of Kent.

Am I the only one to notice that almost every year the Michaels place themselves closer to the Queen than her very own children, there should be rules about who stands where...I bought in a carboot sales old picture books about the BRF and it happened also in the early 80's when Ella and Freddie were small

Princess Michael's place on the balcony is extensively discussed here on an annual basis.

I think that there probably is a standing order with the Queen's children and grandchildren spreading out in the front row and the others more behind in the second row once the first row is full - but starting from the centre so the Michaels' of Kent end up in the centre of the second row and thus near the Queen while her children and grandchildren are in the front row with better views and better able to be seen. If they put the Queen's children and grandchildren close to the Queen they would be in two or three rows around her and not getting best of views or the public seeing them. Having watched the way the enter the balcony the Queen comes out first with Philip and then the rest in order of precedence/succession but along the balcony front. Once it is full they create a second row. Nothing more sinister than that I am sorry to say. Of course the very young children are placed in front in order to see so their parents will also be placed near them.
