2015 Trooping the Colour

Today (June 13, 2015), almost the entire British royal family turned out to officially celebrate the Queen's birthday t the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony. Her Majesty turned 89 years old on April 21 but the celebration is always held on the second Saturday in June for better weather.

Trooping the Colour is carried out by the Household Division (Foot Guards and Household Cavalry) of which Her Majesty is Colonel-in-Chief, and this year, as they mark their centenary, The Queen’s Colour of the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards was carried down the ranks, or 'trooped'.

For today's Trooping the Colour, the Duchess of Cambridge wore an ivory and blue silk 'Astrid' coatdress by Catherine Walker. The new piece featured a contemporary pencil line and a rounded collar. Kate accessorized the outfit with a blonde £895 'Marisabel' hat, handcrafted by Sylvia Fletcher, Lock Hatters leading milliner.
