Princess Charlotte made her first official public appearance during celebrations marking her great-grandmother the Queen's 90th birthday on Saturday.

Charlotte was held by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, alongside Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, who held Prince George.

Prior to Saturday, Charlotte had only been seen in public leaving the hospital after her birth and entering the church for her christening.

The Queen turned 90 in April. Saturday's events were held alongside her second, official birthday.

Princess Anne was riding a horse named Elizabeth, named for her mother, the Queen. Elizabeth (horse not person) will be retired from duty following today's events.

Kate wore a suit designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, who also designed her wedding dress and many other outfits for the Duchess's public appearances.
