Trooping the Colour, staged every June by London's Horse Guards Parade, has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years.

In an unexpected turn of events, the 7-year-old was seen dancing on the Buckingham Palace balcony and faux conducting the national anthem, as the royal family awaited the 1pm fly-over.

The parade and ceremony was the first official royal event following the nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who just recently returned from their honeymoon, that the entire British monarchy attended.

Meghan Markle is still breaking protocol despite her newly minted royal status.
