Decked out in all their military finery, with bearskins, cavalry and soldiers galore, the Royal family assembled in central London today for the Trooping of the Colour to mark the Queen’s official birthday.

But despite all the splendour on show, there was only one star, as gorgeous Prince George made his first appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to wave at the adoring crowds gathered below alongside the Duchess of Cambridge, making her first appearance since giving birth last month.

George cuddled up to proud father Prince William, still dressed in his red tunic having ridden on horseback alongside Princess Anne and Prince Charles during the earlier parade.

Trooping the Colour is a military tradition dating back hundreds of years, but became associated with the royals in the 18th century. The Queen's actual birthday is on April 21
