Kate and the kids are all smiles as they wave to crowds at King Charles’ first Trooping the Colour parade | The Sun

KATE and the Royal kids were all smiles as they waved to crowds at King Charles' first Trooping the Colour parade.

The event, which was rescheduled for today following bad weather last month, will celebrate Charles' birthday.

The Royals pulled up to Buckingham Palace this morning flanked by security ahead of the spectacular.

Shortly after, Kate, George, Charlotte and Louis joined Camilla as they got into carriages ready to join the procession.

Prince William wore his military uniform, donning his Royal Air Force medals, while Kate stunned in an emerald green dress and matching hat.

The Princess of Wales gave a sweet nod to Princess Diana by wearing her earrings.

Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend the Trooping the Colour?

Along with his mother’s stunning sapphire engagement ring, William also gave Kate the jewels after he proposed in 2010. 

The precious earrings were a favourite of Princess Diana's as they perfectly matched her engagement ring and could be seen worn by her daughter-in-law today.

Prince George and Prince Louis looked dapper in their matching navy suits and red ties.

Cheeky Charlotte wore a cute white dress with a red trim and neck scarf.

King Charles is the first monarch to ride out in 37 years as he rode out with the procession.

Beside him, was the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Duke of Edinburgh.

With the clock striking at 11am, Charles received a salute before the National Anthem was played.

The family will join The King and Queen Camilla on the balcony as the plans roar overhead.

It's understood Harry and Meghan will not be attending.

Seventy military aircraft including the RAF Red Arrows will shoot through the skies on Saturday for a massive flypast.

Trooping the Colour at Buckingham Palace will see Spitfires, Typhoons, Chinooks, Apaches and a range of other military aircraft flying over 13 counties.

Set to last around 15 minutes, the flypast will officially start at 1pm in London.

The Red Arrows are likely to assemble over the North Sea area and leave at around 11.45am to begin the route inland over the Lincolnshire coast, Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex.

They will then make their way into London near Hainault Country Park, in Essex, at around 12.40pm then over Buckingham Palace from 1pm.

The Red Arrows will then start to disperse as the flypast comes to an end.

It means Brits in a number of counties may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the famous red jets before and after the flypast.

They include: Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Kent, London, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

The RAF's Air Chief Marshal Sir Rich Knighton said: "We are very proud to be able to showcase our capabilities to our Commander-in-Chief, on this historic occasion for His Majesty The King.

“We have planned a fitting and appropriate tribute for our monarch, that should be a true spectacle for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth."
