'Trooping the color' in London for queen's official birthday

Today is the annual Trooping the Colour celebration in honor of Queen Elizabeth's birthday, and the whole family had a picture flawless moment on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. You may recall the hilarious (yet wildly embarrassing) viral moment where the Queen told Prince William to stand up after he spent more time bent down talking to Prince George than she would have liked. Dressed in the same shade of pink as her mum, she soaked it all in with some pretty hilarious facial expressions, which she no doubt picked up from her older brother.

Crowds of well-wishers laughed as the naughty royal, age three, bounced up and down with sister Charlotte, two, during a flypast by the Red Arrows.

Temperatures are forecast to hit 29C in London on one of the hottest days of the year, with much of Wales likely to see the mercury hit the mid to high 20Cs. The annual ceremony is Queen Elizabeth II's birthday parade, traditionally held in the warmer months for better weather.

As People reports, the Queen wore a powder-blue Stewart Parvin outfit and matching Philip Somerville-designed hat, along with her Brigade of Guards Badge, which she wears for each year's parade.

This year's Trooping the Colour took on special significance, as the country mourned those who recently died and celebrated the heroism of others.

Remember how the cricket world thought the key period in the contest would be the middle overs in India's innings. But the more consistent you get in learning from games like this, it s better for the team in the future.

Queen Elizabeth's 91st birthday celebration was nearly marred after a guardsman fainted during hot conditions at a parade to honour the British Monarch.

As is the custom, Prince William, Prince Charles and Princess Anne rode on horseback.

Meanwhile, five Guardsmen were stretchered off the parade after fainting under sweltering heat during the ceremony.

But the stirring ceremony, involving 1,600 guardsmen and 244 horses, provided a welcome fillip amid what the Queen had acknowledged in a message was "a very sombre national mood".
