When royals make their debuts at the Queen’s birthday parade


Trooping the Colour is always one of the highlights of the royal family’s summer calendar and is the annual ceremony, which marks the Queen‘s birthday.

The monarch is usually joined by members of her immediate and extended family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the fly-past and we’ve seen a number of new faces make their debuts over the years.

The ceremony for 2021 will be scaled-down like in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Queen will only be accompanied by her cousin, the Duke of Kent, at Windsor Castle on 12 June.  

HELLO! takes a look back at Trooping the Colour debuts, from royal children to husbands and wives, who’ve married into the Firm.
