Prince George had a very busy weekend!
On Saturday, the Queen celebrated her birthday at Trooping the Colour (her annual birthday parade). And there was a special guest—Georgie! Yes, Prince George made his first balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace in the arms of his dad, Prince William.
“Look, Dad!” George was clearly fascinated by all the planes.
This was also Kate’s first appearance since Princess Charlotte‘s birth. And she looked fashionable as always in a Catherine Walker coat and a Lock & Co hat.
Now, if you want George’s sweet romper for your own little one, I have some sad news: This baby blue outfit is an heirloom piece. It’s the same romper William wore at Trooping the Colour back in 1984. Holy cuteness!
While George didn’t get to ride in a carriage to the palace—he’s too young for that—he did get to watch Mummy and Daddy ride past from a palace window with Nanny Maria. And he was quite cheeky, sticking his tongue out at all the royals. Don’t let Great-Granny see that!
George wore a Trotters cardigan over his heirloom romper. You can’t get a piece of history dirty! Unfortunately, George’s cardigan has already sold out—he’s just like his mom!
The royal fun wasn’t over yet! On Sunday, George and Kate went to watch William and Prince Harry play polo.
Since Princess Charlotte stayed home, George got to play with all his cousins. He ran around with his Canadian cousins, Savannah and Isla (the daughters of William’s cousin Peter and his Canadian wife, Autumn). Plus, his cousin Mia was there too. She’s the daughter of George’s godmother, Zara.
George was carrying around a truck, but was later seen playing polo with a mini stick and ball. Just like Dad! He also kept Kate quite busy, tumbling down the hills. I bet both mom and son took a nice nap after this.
This time, George didn’t wear any heirloom pieces, instead he looked like your typical toddler in a sweater by Olivier Baby, navy Crocs and Mayoral shorts.
Kate was wearing a Me & Em top with her trusty Sebago boat shoes and a pair of TopShop jeans. Does this outfit look familiar? Kate wore a similar look last year when she took a barely walking George to a polo match (pictured above). I love that Kate has a standard “Mom” look. Stretchy jeans, a striped top and comfy shoes—a stylish look still lets her race after a busy George.
Now royal watchers, these adorable photos will have to keep you going for a few more weeks. Little Lottie’s christening isn’t until July 5! Until then.
