It's not long to go until we get to see all the members of the royal family appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping the Colour – and fans are particularly excited about seeing the Cambridge children once again.
And it appears that the youngest members of the royal family get special treatment – including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Britain celebrates the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II on June 9, 2018. The event is marked by Trooping the Colour parade in central London. The Queen's actual birthday is on April 21 but as per the tradition started by King George II in 1748, the monarch celebrates her official birthday on a Saturday in June.

Will Prince Louis be making his public debut next week?
All clues point to Prince Louis making his debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony next week for the annual Trooping the Colour parade. Just last week we were treated to rare photographs and footage of the Cambridge family exploring the interactive garden Duchess Catherine had co-designed for the Chelsea Garden Show.
Last year also marked the Duchess of Sussex's first appearance at the royal event.
She is expected to take part in the ceremony again this year, which will be her next public appearance following the arrival of her baby son.
Since 1748, Trooping the Colour has been the official commemoration of the sovereign's birthday, and throughout her reign, the Queen has never missed the occasion, apart from in 1955 when the event was cancelled due to a national rail strike.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are determined to give their children as normal an upbringing as possible. They rarely take Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on official engagements and have a very hands-on approach to parenting. But in May 2019, the Cambridges surprised fans with a high-profile outing at the Chelsea Flower Show. William showed off his paternal side, cooing over baby Louis and asking his daughter Charlotte to push him on a rope swing. The Duke also sweetly chatted to his eldest child George, asking the youngster what he thought of the Back to Nature garden Kate had co-designed. "Twenty out of ten," George said, rating his mum's garden. "That's pretty good, I think mummy's done well," William said. Sitting on the swing, William then turned his attention to his daughter and said: "Charlotte, give me a push," as the little girl ran over to him. Let's take a look at more of William's cutest bonding moments with his kids…

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked animated as they watched the flypast with George and Charlotte. Louis was absent as he was too young to take part in the celebrations. Prince William and Kate's children were the picture of happiness as they stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in June 2018.
The Duke of Cambridge introduced Prince Louis to the world on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital on 23 April 2018. The royal couple looked elated as they cradled their bundle of joy, who was born weighing 8lb 7oz.
In April 2018, Prince William brought George and Charlotte to visit their mum in hospital shortly after Prince Louis' arrival. The doting dad briefly left the hospital to pick them up after George finished school, and the youngsters were photographed holding hands with William while making their way to the hospital, with little Charlotte turning around to give the crowds an adorable extra wave.

In 2017, proud parents William and Kate appeared to be in great spirits as they attended Trooping the Colour with Charlotte and George, who seemed in awe of the annual parade. Prince William made sure his little girl was enjoying the festivities as he tucked her hair behind her ear.
William was thrilled to be able to experience a tour Down Under with his nine-month-old son, who was the same age William was when he travelled through New Zealand and Australia with Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1983.
