Trooping the Colour 2012

My heart, my heart- the Windsors are back! After the barren balcony for the Jubilee, everyone is back together in for the Queen's Birthday Parade, or as I call it, "Royal Christmas." No open carriages this year, the Queen and Prince Philip rode in the Glass Coach, incase it rained.

A la typical QE style, the Queen recycled the same Angela Kelly outfit she wore to her grandson's wedding, along with the Guard's Badge she wears every year. The Duchess of Cambridge finally wore a brand new outfit, YAY! But I didn't fancy her fascinator, which covered a portion of her eyes! Also, I think Eugenie's carriage might have ran over a fowl on the way out of the palace. Roadkill is a no no.

L to R: The Duchess of Kent, Princess Alexandra of Kent, The Duchess of Gloucester, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent (huge freaking veil!)

It was great to see Prince Philip out and about today, but he did look a bit frail. Hopefully he will remain energetic for many years to come. It was lovely to see the balcony packed again, teeming with royals! And of course, a major royal event wouldn't be complete without an obligatory flypast, and the Red Arrows were a delight!
