There's a parade and everything!
Kate Middleton was the very essence of elegance in a white Alexander McQueen coat dress also worn to Princess Charlotte's christening, but her floral Philip Treacy hat was truly magnificent!
How brilliant to attach a robust flower to the bottom of the brim? We die!
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were adorable, of course, in light-colored clothes that matched their mama, while Prince William put on his de rigueur military uniform.
But can we take a moment and applaud the Queen herself for wearing a lime green skirt suit with matching hat? She wanted to make sure everybody remembered that it was her special day!
