Princess Eugenie waves to the crowd of her carriage at Trooping the Color today. The queen seemed to borrow the closed coach that she used for her wedding last year
Princess Eugenie joined Sister Beatrice in a horse-drawn carriage at Trooping the Color when the queen seemed to borrow the closed carriage she used for her wedding last year.
The Princess of York, 29, astonished the crowds on Horse Guards Parade in a white and blue dress with motifs and neutral makeup as she watched her father salute Prince Andrew for the first time.
Her black hat, by Emily London, crowned with a white flower, completed the look and complemented the comparable headpiece and the modest pink and black laced dress of 30-year-old Beatrice.
Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, who married in October, sat in their carriages alongside Beatrice and the Duke of Kent.
Beatrice, Prince Andrew's eldest daughter, believed that she had borrowed her aunt, the Countess of Wessex & # 39; s dress she wore in Ascot in 2018.
Military splendor could be seen to celebrate the Queen's official birthday – and the new mother, the Duchess of Sussex, made her first public appearance since the birth.
The Queen's milestone was marked by the Trooping the Color ceremony in which some of Britain's most prestigious regiments set the age-old spectacle on stage.

The queen arrived in a procession full of splendor with a Sovereign's Escort of the Household Cavalry, consisting of Life Guards and Blues and Royals, in their silver and gold breast plates and plumed helmets.
She stopped in the horse-drawn Scottish State Coach, which was last seen at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, despite the choice of an open car in recent years.
The typical dull British weather was assumed to be the reason, because rain was predicted.
Her Majesty wore an Angela Kelly outfit consisting of a pastel tweed dress in the colors light pink, mint yellow and gold and a matching hat.
She also adorned a badge from The Brigade Of Guards. The typical boring British weather was the reason for this, as the rain was predicted.

Where was the covered carriage the queen saw driving today?
The Scottish state bus was an option for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last May, but it was the queen who needed him today to keep the rain out.
It was built in 1830 and a new top was made in 1969 with large windows and a partially glass roof, so that spectators could see the passengers.
The coach has gold-colored upholstery and it is the only royal carriage that carries the Royal Arms of Scotland.

The coach was redesigned in 1969 when a new roof was installed and large stained glass windows were placed on the sides and two in the top.
Riding on horseback behind the queen's carriage were the royal colonels: the prince of Wales, colonel of the Welsh Guards, the princess Royal, colonel of the blues and Royals, and the duke of Cambridge, colonel of the Irish guard and duke of York, Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.
Trooping the Color is both a social and a ceremonial occasion and is located in the gallery overlooking the parade grounds where the wives, girlfriends and parents of the guards and officers were on parade.

The event consisted of around 1,400 soldiers in total and hundreds of Guardsmen were set up at the parade place, ready to be inspected by the queen.
The color, or ceremonial regimental flag, which was paraded this year, came from the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, a front line infantry regiment of the British army when not performing ceremonial duties.
Their origins can be traced back to 1656 when the military unit was brought up as King's bodyguard by King Charles II while he was in exile in Bruges.

Harry, Meghan, Kate and the other members of the royal family – including the Count and Countess of Wessex and their children the Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor – watched events from Wellington & # 39; s office overlooking Horse Guards.
Among the guests was Theresa May who formally resigned as prime minister on Friday, but will remain in office until a successor has been appointed.
Shortly after the queen arrived at the parade site, the national anthem was played and a horse could run across the clearing after he apparently lowered his rider.
Despite the bleak weather, thousands of spectators have climbed the streets to see 1,400 troops, 400 musicians and 200 horses marching in the parade
The queen began inspecting the ceremony through the rows of guards in the parade field and cast a critical eye on the soldiers as she passed by in her carriage, followed by the royal colonels on horseback.
Colors, or flags, were worn by the soldiers, or & # 39; moved & # 39; so that they could be seen and recognized by the soldiers.
In the 18th century, guardians of the royal palaces gathered daily on Horse Guards to comfort the colors & # 39 ;, and in 1748 it was announced that the parade would also mark the official anniversary of the Sovereign.

The Queen's real birthday was on April 21 when she turned 93.
The mass bands of the Household Division and the Mounted Band of the Household Calvary provided the musical support for the ceremony.
While he also participated, the King & # 39; s Troop was Royal Horse Artillery, which fires a salute of 41 soldiers into Green Park on the occasion of the Queen's official birthday.
The color was first moved by the rows of soldiers before the guardsmen marched past the queen, first in slow then in a short time.
Spectators were treated to seeing precision jigs where each Guardsman had walked more than 270 miles during rehearsals and had taken more than half a million steps.
