Over three decades since a young Prince William attended the annual Trooping the Colour parade in a sailor outfit, his son, four-year-old Prince Louis, wore a similar look at his carriage debut at this year’s festivities.
For the historic occasion, which kicks off Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Louis wore a mini blue-and-white sailors outfit—a near identical match to what the Duke of Cambridge wore as a two-year-old to the 1985 parade.
This year’s event marks the parade’s return to Buckingham Palace. For the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced Trooping the Colour, which honors the Queen’s birthday, to be modified into scaled-down affairs that took place at Windsor Castle. This is also the first time that the Cambridge family has attended the event since 2019.
From today until Sunday, the unprecedented Platinum Jubilee celebrations are recognizing Queen Elizabeth’s historic 70 year reign. The weekend will see a host of public events and festivities, including a national Service of Thanksgiving for the monarch, a Guildhall Reception, and a Platinum Pageant.
Other members of the royal family will be in attendance throughout the week, including Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who have returned to the U.K. for their first public visit since stepping down as senior members of the royal family in 2020.
