One of the biggest perks of being a king is getting the best seats in the house for the Trooping the Color flypast.

Thousands of people gather outside Buckingham Palace to see the Queen and her family on the balcony and it’s one of the few times we get to see them all together.

But all the fuss got a bit too much for Princess Charlotte in 2019, and she had to be comforted by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, after she burst into tears.

The little queen, who is fourth in line to the throne, was having a lovely time with her second cousins, glancing down at the crowd and waving excitedly.

As the RAF planes flew over, she clapped excitedly and said ‘Wow’.

She also seemed delighted with a brochure about the celebrations with Savannah Phillips, and the two youngsters were seen flipping through the pages.

Her brother George also had a book and was seen waving it over his head.

But there was a shaky moment when Charlotte dropped the booklet and started crying and needed a quick kiss and hug from mum Kate.

And it worked beautifully, and just a few minutes later she was smiling again.

Meanwhile, Prince George was silenced by his “cheeky” cousin during today’s celebrations.

The playful seven-year-old helped Charlotte point out the planes in her special book and then showed her cheeky side by pretending to conduct the band performing the national anthem before putting her hand over George’s mouth as he sang.

The four-year-old prince seemed to chuckle as he held out his fist and watched the parade.

Royal fans loved the scene and took to Twitter to praise Princess Anne’s granddaughter.

One viewer said: “So cheeky. They obviously have a really fun and sweet relationship.”

Trooping the Color is the Queen’s official birthday party and is a full ceremony with all the pomp and fanfare.

The 2019 event was the first attended by Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle following their wedding in Windsor the year before.

The Queen, who recently had successful eye surgery to remove a cataract, watched the trooping ceremony from a podium at Horse Guards and later inspected the ranks of the Guardsmen in their scarlet tunics and bearskins.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled down the Mall from Buckingham Palace to cheer from excited royal fans who had gathered on London’s famous thoroughfare.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge were in another carriage, while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and their daughter Lady Louise.
