King Charles III’s uniform:

Charles wore the tunic of the the Irish Guards, since it was this regiment trooping their colour today.

The uniform featured the cypher of Elizabeth II, as his predecessor, following tradition. He also wore the Garter sash, and Thistle Stars.

Queen Camilla wore a pale green silk crepe dress and coat from her go-to designer, Anna Valentine, featuring frayed hems, and a large brim cream hat by Philip Treacy.

Pinned to her coat was her Grenadier Guards military brooch.

The Royal Colonels’ uniforms

As Colonel of the Welsh, Blues and Royals and the Scots Guards respectively, The Prince of Wales, The Princes Royal and The Duke of Edinburgh were all seen in their ceremonial dress uniforms. William and Anne wore their Garter sashes and Stars, as well as their Gold, Diamond, and Platinum Jubilee medals from Elizabeth II, and aiguilettes as Personal Aides-de-Camp to His Majesty.

Edward, meanwhile, wore his Thistle sash; usually, a wearer chooses the most senior Order they hold, but they can equally wear one that’s ‘particularly relevant’ to the outing, which is what we expect the Duke did here.  He was appointed to the Order of the Thistle in March this year.

The Princess of Wales Trooping outfit

Catherine wore white and navy, a dress with bow detail from Jenny Packham, and a saucer hat also by Philip Treacy. She chose her navy Mulberry clutch, white pointed heels and a regimental Irish Guards badge brooch, representing her colonelship – note this is different to the shamrock brooch which was a gift from the regiment.

Finally, we saw her Cassandra Goad pearl cluster earrings.
