Is the younger girl a cousin of Xan and Cosima, possibly Lyla Gilman?
I agree with most of your guesses, but I think you have Cosima and Lyla reversed. I think Cosima is brunette with bangs.

And I think the two young women on the right side of the balcony (near Lady Helen) are Zenouska Mowatt (pink striped dress)and Flora Ogilvy (pale pink, large cream hat).

Be interested in whether anyone thinks that's right

I agree with you--Lady Rose Gilman and her husband George. I think the little blondish girl (without bangs) with one of Lord Nicholas's sons is their daughter Lyla.
I couldn't find the Duchess of Gloucester either.

Did anyone see Princess Alexandra? I found her son James, daughter-in-law Julia and granddaughters Flora and Zenouska and grandson Alexander on the balcony.

Does the royal family have lunch together at some point during the day of Trooping the Color? I just wondered since that is one of the few times of year they are all together.

I've wondered that too, especially for the children and grandchildren and their offspring. I think it would be a bit much to have the whole extended family sitting down to a meal, but it is after all lunch time when the whole thing finishes.

I wondered about that too...and then figured it makes sense that they would all go sit down and have lunch together afterwards.

Fair enough all points made about the people that were ON the balcony...

What about the people that were down, on the road and the mall..? Did the crowd seem smaller than other years, or is it just my impression??

The 'due in summer' was based on speculation from when she announced.

Not every woman is as up to events right before popping. Madeleine may have thought her brother's wedding too important to miss. And since she was in Stockholm for the birth, she didn't have to travel either.

Zara lives at Gatcombe (or rumors suggest she lives at her father's property Aston farm). As much as she loves her grandmother, traveling all the way to London when ready to pop, likely wasn't high on her list. Unlike a wedding, trooping happens every year (and isn't her grandmother's actual birthday). Traveling 2 hours in a car, at 9 months pregnant, to appear on a balcony for a few minutes, would not appeal to many people at this stage.

This year, @TheDukeOfYork rode for the first time at Trooping in his role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards. HRH rode on a horse from the Royal Mews called Elizabeth.

The Duke of York will be riding Elizabeth, the previous mount of The Princess Royal.

The Duke has prepared for #TroopingTheColour by riding both at Windsor Castle and during two parades in London. Before this, the last time HRH rode was in Argentina in 1992!

I think part of it may just have been that the crowds were kept back down the Mall for longer due to the Lord Guthrie incident. He fell right where the public would stand and it seems the police did not let people walk up the mall to the Palace until he was moved. As such we saw that as the Royals came out on the balcony people were still filling up by the Victoria Memorial, usually they are well in place before the Queen and Royals appear. I suspect they were left with two choices either
a) wait for the public to be in place as usual which would mean the Queen and royals would miss part of the fly past or the fly past would have to be delayed (actually almost impossible to do so late on)
b) The Queen and Royals head out in time for the fly past as the public are still filling up in front of the Palace.

Thats not saying there weren't less people than other years, I just don't think we can compare like for like photos this time.

Zenouska Mowatt posted pictures on her instagram of a family lunch afterwards in a marquee in what I presume was BP.

I don't understand. Normally the Duc and the Duchess of Gloucester have "preseance " on the Kents.
Again the first minor Royal next to Princess Anne 's husband : Princess Michael of Kent!

I think its because of what we saw was a family gathering with no set precedence on the balcony. There weren't any "set" places for people to be and people went where they found a spot. Only ones front and center as a rule is HM, The Queen and the kids so they could see everything and not be blocked by the "big people" in front of them.

There's no precedence per se on the balcony, or at least a very informal one (Queen + senior royals centre stage, the "rest" where they can find a spot).

I don't think the balcony appearance follows strict precedence, except the Queen, the Cambridges and the Prince of Wales being front and center (not quite the case for the PoW this year though). For all the rest, including apparently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it seems to be rather random. Of course, the children are given a "precedence" of their own in terms of being in front.



The Gloucesters and the Kents seem to try to conform to precedence moving to the left or right sides and leaving the central section for the direct descendants of Queen Elizabeth II, but among themselves, there doesn't seem to be any particular order of arrival or positioning either.



Personally, I think it is too many people to be on the balcony at the same time. There is no need for the entire extended family to come out with the "Mountbatten-Windsors". Yes, technically, from the patrilineal point of view, they are at least two different families, if not several different families if you count the Phillips, or the Mowatts, or the Gilmans, etc. as separate families from both the Windsors (male-line descendants of George V) and the Mountbatten-Windsors (male-line descendants of Prince Philip).

Xan Windsor is grandson to The Duke of Gloucester, his father is Alexander, Earl of Ulster.

Albert and Leopold are grandsons of The Duke of Kent, their father is Lord Nicholas Windsor.

Which really begs the question: where does the "Royal Family" end ?
