At this year's event, Prince George and Princess Charlotte coordinated with Louis, with George wearing a white button-down shirt with blue piping and Charlotte wearing a blue floral print dress.

Prince William was also pictured at the celebratory event, along with Meghan's husband Prince Harry, the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla.
