Ok, we love a good royal balcony appearance and, since Kate has had quite a few in her first months of Royal life, we thought we’d take a good look through them. As you’ll see we just might be stretching it a bit for some of these, but, hey, it’s all in good fun.
1. The Wedding Day!
To start, the first balcony appearance was on Kate and William’s wedding day. This was at Buckingham Palace and there are oodles of great shots of William, Kate, their attendants, the Queen and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, and of course the Middletons.
Here’s one especially iconic shot:
Now check out the planes! Except for little Grace van Cutsem, of course, who was having NONE of it and kept her hands clamped firmly over her ears.
Good bye, everyone!
Back we go
2. Trooping the Colour
Next up was Trooping the Colour, which took place in June. We got a bit of a balcony peak of Kate at Whitehall early in the day:
Later, Kate appeared with the family on the Buckingham Palace balcony wearing a white Alexander McQueen number. We wonder if she picked it out on purpose since it was another McQueen that she’d be wearing on the same balcony where she wore her McQueen wedding dress. This outfit even had some of the same design details. Check out our post on that by clicking here.
In any event, she was having a grand ol’ time and was sure laughing about something Wiliam was saying…
And, just like the first time on that balcony, there was another round of planes to look out for. That’s Sophie, Countess of Wessex, joining them in the pink suit and hat:
3. Charlottetown, PEI
Then there was Kate’s balcony appearance in Charlottetown, PEI while William was getting ready for his Sea King helicopter landing….
Yes, this was of the more casual variety…
4. Remembrance Sunday
This past Remembrance Sunday she had another balcony appearance, flanked by the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex. Check out our post on that event by clicking here.
5. Gary Barlow Concert
Most recently, Kate made another less formal balcony appearance. This was at a Gary Barlow concert in early December which was a fundraiser for both The Prince’s Trust and the Foundation of Prince William and Harry. Kate turned out in a lace Zara dress and seemed to be a bit more on the serious side:
Well that pretty much covers ‘em for now.
We’ll probably be getting many more balcony appearances during the Jubilee celebrations and, who knows, maybe there’ll be something during the Olympics. Do let us know if we missed any!
