Trooping the colour...ful outfits: The best royal looks from Britain's most iconic parade over the years

Immortalising the event in its own right.

By Jess Pullar
Whenever June rolls around each year, there are several things we immediately think of.
Our winter wardrobes (for obvious reasons), the fact that we're already half way through the year (again, for despairingly obvious reasons) and, of course, one of the biggest events on the royal calendar - Trooping the Colour.
Oh yes, a day that serves up a healthy dose of pomp, fanfare and a royal spectacle - from the very balcony of Buckingham Palace, no less - this is always going to be a day we none-blue-blooded folk will gladly flock to feast our eyeballs on.
And there's one overriding element to the day's events that always keeps us on our toes - the outfits.
Held in honour of the Queen's birthday every year, the annual event occurs at Buckingham Palace and takes place before a regal procession of horse-drawn carriages, many of which host the royal family members themselves as they make their way into the location.
Then comes the iconic flyover, which coincides with the moment the entire royal family step out onto the balcony together to watch, and wave to onlookers.
Over the years, the event has seen many a colourful moment - and we're not just talking about Prince George's hilarious displays or Prince Louis' frantic wave (never forget that 2019 spectacle...).
Oh yes, the outfits are what truly put the cherry on top of the fun-filled day, and while the 2020 event won't be going ahead in its traditional form amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we're taking comfort in the fact that we've seen enough brilliant Trooping the Colour outfits to last us a lifetime.
Well, at least until 2021's event, that is...
