Kate Middleton, George, Charlotte and Louis beam at crowds in Trooping of Colour parade

Kate Middleton was joined by her children and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as they took part in the Trooping the Colour parade on Thursday morning.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, looked adorable as they took part in their first carriage procession as celebrations marking the Queen’s 70-year reign began.

Kate looked sensational in an all-white ensemble as she was seen waving to the crowds.

She showed off her sartorial prowess in a double-breasted white blazer dress and a white and navy hat atop her brunette locks that were styled in a braided bun.

Sitting in the horse carriage alongside Camilla and her brood, who she shares with Prince William, 40 year old Kate couldn't wipe the smile from her face as she soaked up the celebratory atmosphere.

Her three children, who were all dressed in a light blue, navy and white colour scheme, took note from their mother as they were also pictured waving at crowds of onlookers.

Prince Louis sat between his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte in a carriage, with the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall sat opposite.

At one point Charlotte appeared to push Louis’s hand down as they waved.

Cheers went up from thousands of spectators in The Mall as they caught sight of George, Charlotte and Louis with proud parent Kate and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The traditional carriage procession left Buckingham Palace ahead of Trooping the Colour, also known as the Birthday Parade, that marked the start of four day of festivities honouring the Queen’s 70-year reign.

The Trooping the Colour marked the beginning of a jam-packed bank holiday weekend of Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Starting at 10.45am, the parade features over 1,200 officers and soldiers, 400 musicians and around 240 horses.

Senior Royals, including the Queen, will then congregate on the Buckingham Palace balcony for a Royal Gun Salute. Proceedings will draw to a close with a jaw-dropping six-minute flypast.

Brits have been given an extra day off to mark the once-in-a-lifetime occasion with street parties up and down the country set to take place in the coming days.

The Royals also have a busy schedule and on Friday morning, they'll attend a special service in honour of the Queen at St. Paul's Cathedral.

After months of deliberations, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the decision to jet over to the UK for the occasion.

While the couple and their kids, Archie and Lilibet, were absent from the Trooping the Colour, it's believed they'll attend the church service.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are joining in the fun too and have perhaps bagged the best Jubilee role of all – cameos in EastEnders.
