The Duchess of Cambridge watches on with her children and Philip during the impressive RAF flypast
After listening to a final rendition of the national anthem the family headed inside, but not before a customary royal wave, which Charlotte eagerly joined in on.
Kate Middleton also dazzled on the Queen's big day in a pink dress by Alexander McQueen and hat by Jane Taylor. She was captured frolicking with the young Royals as their great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, glanced lovingly on.
Before the family took to the balcony the Queen, under blue skies and brilliant summer sunshine watched, the centuries-old military spectacle of might, splendour and precision on Horse Guards Parade, Henry VIII's former jousting yard.
The event is an important day in the Armed Forces' calendar and families and friends of the officers and soldiers on parade watch the ceremony.
But with the nation reeling from the Grenfell Tower block inferno and the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, the Queen issued a message on her official birthday to recognise the sober mood in the country.
