Of course, Prince George and Princess Charlotte steal the show at the Trooping the Colour

It's an honorary day that dates back to the 1700s for the British monarchy -- the annual Trooping the Colour took place Saturday afternoon in London. Boasting a guest list of over 1,000 soldiers, the royal family, thousands of onlookers and millions of worldwide views, the Trooping the Colour is one of the most anticipated royal events of the year. So naturally, all eyes were on Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they took part in the day.

After the procession, the royal family gathered on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the RAF fly above, while waving to wave of cheering spectators.

Prince George was obviously excited for the event, dancing around and reportedly "waving his hands around like an orchestra conductor," according to People. Dressed in suspenders, the young royal, who turns four quite soon, stood with his mouth agape, clearly entranced by the planes flying past.
