The royal family faced heavy rain during the Trooping the Colour parade in London on June 15. Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte were seen dealing with the rain while inside their carriage, wiping away condensation from the window. However, Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, had to endure the wet weather as she arrived in an open carriage with her daughter Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor.

Despite the rain, Princess Diana made her first public appearance since announcing her cancer diagnosis in March. She was in an enclosed horse-drawn carriage with her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. King Charles and Queen Camilla arrived in the Gold State Coach, which provided shelter from the rain as they passed by spectators who had gathered outside in the wet weather.

The traditional flypast for the King still took place during the ceremony, despite the heavy rain. The King and Queen’s arrival at the parade was a grand spectacle, with the air spectacle over Buckingham Palace going off without a hitch. Earlier in the day, the Royal Air Force had announced that the flypast would proceed as planned if the weather improved.

Overall, the royal family showed resilience in the face of the rainy weather at the Trooping the Colour parade. Despite the challenging conditions, the event went on smoothly, showcasing the family’s dedication to tradition and duty. The public turnout and support for the royal family during the parade demonstrated the enduring popularity of the monarchy in the UK. The event served as a reminder of the importance of tradition and ceremony in celebrating the King’s Official Birthday.
