Prince George and Princess Charlotte had all eyes on them at the Queen's birthday celebrations.

The Trooping the Colours parade is an annual official commemoration of the British Sovereign’s birthday.

The Prince and Princess made their appearance with the rest of the family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Charlotte, at just 2 years old, already knew how to work the crowd as she smiled and waved.

Before the event, the Queen and Prince Philip held a minute of silence and then a message in regards to the recent tragedies.

“Today is traditionally a day of celebration. This year, however, it is difficult to escape a very’ somber national mood. In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of terrible tragedies,” the Queen said.
