The Duchess of Cambridge wore a bubblegum pink Alexander McQueen skater dress, which she paired with a matching Jane Taylor hat and teardrop earrings.

'Today is traditionally a day of celebration.

In a statement released on her official 91st birthday, she said that while the day was traditionally a celebration, "it is hard to escape a very sombre national mood".

Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by grandson Prince William, visited the site and met with the fire-fighters, volunteers, community members and kin of the victims and those missing.

We're beginning to think the rest of the royal family could turn up wearing bin liners to public engagements when Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

As with previous years, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke of York are expected to take part in the Queen's carriage procession.

Queen Elizabeth also officially celebrated her 91st birthday at the ceremony, which features performances by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies.

Both George and Charlotte could be seen watching the festivities from a window in Buckingham Palace earlier that day.

But, as always, all eyes were on Prince George and Princess Charlotte when they appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony to wave at the crowds and watch the flypast.

She said her visits to London and Manchester - the latter the site of a terror attack last month - have highlighted the people who offer comfort and support those affected.

Dressed in his full uniform, including a bearskin, one soldier fell forward out of his formation as the mercury hit 25C in nearby St James's Park during Trooping the Colour on Saturday.

Before the Trooping ceremony, the Queen led a minute of silence for the lives lost at Grenfell Tower.

The Queen's birthday is on April 21 but it is officially acknowledged in the United Kingdom on a Saturday in June. It's a tradition that began with King George II in 1748.
