Towards the end of the Queen's annual birthday festivities, known as Trooping the Colour, the immediate royal family members gather on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to greet the crowd. These iconic balcony moments have brought us Prince George's best faces, Princess Charlotte's sweet indifference, and some of Princess Beatrice's wildest hats.

Since Harry and Meghan had their wedding at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, the world missed out on the classic royal wedding balcony kiss that took place at Kate and Will's wedding and Charles and Diana's. (It's fine, their chapel kiss surrounded by gorgeous flowers will do.) The new royal spouses have to keep the PDA to a minimum during the balcony moment for Trooping the Colour, but at least their presence makes for a pretty epic photo-op.
