Princess Eugenie Shares Pics from 1-Year-Old Son’s First Trooping the Colour on Instagram

Princess Eugenie’s little son, August, experienced Trooping the Colour for the first time ever—and of course, she had to capture the special moment and post it on social media.

Yesterday, the princess shared a series of photos on Instagram, capturing the moment August saw the RAF flypast. Eugenie, August and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, found a nice spot on a building rooftop to watch the show.

While Brooksbank held their son in his arms, they all watched and waved to the planes that flew by. She wrote in the caption, “The most perfect day to celebrate 70 years,” with a slew of party emojis.

Now, you may have noticed that Eugenie and her family weren’t present on the Buckingham Palace balcony. Unlike years prior, she did not take part in the ceremony. Ahead of the Platinum Jubilee celebration, Queen Elizabeth announced that only working members of the royal family would appear in the balcony photo. Eugenie's lack of involvement is probably because she doesn’t have a formal working role in the royal family.

Day one of the queen’s Platinum Jubilee proved to be a very special one for the younger royals. For one, Kate Middleton and Prince Williams’s three children, Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte, rode in a horse-drawn carriage in the Trooping the Colour parade.

This particular appearance marked the first time the Cambridge children participated in the parade celebration. In the past, they have been a part of the royal balcony photo, but they never appeared in the parade before this year.

Glad to see little August enjoy the flypast show (while his cousin, Prince Louis, wasn’t the biggest fan…).
