The Duke of Edinburgh appeared to be in good spirits as he attended the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony in honour of the Queen's official birthday.

Prince Phillip, who has resumed official duties after recovering from a bladder infection, attended the parade in London with the Queen.

Thousands of people watched the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge ride to the ceremony at Horse Guards Parade.

The military event came as the Queen's Birthday Honours list was published.

The Queen and Prince Phillip rode in a glass coach down the Mall to the ceremony. They were due to travel in Queen Victoria's 1842 ivory-mounted phaeton carriage but this was changed due to the "unpredictable nature of the weather", a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.
