Double treat for royal fans Saturday in London: Prince George of Cambridge joined his family for the first time on the Buckingham Palace balcony, greeting a thrilled crowd with a royal wave.

It happened at the end of the annual Trooping the Color parade, as his mum, Duchess Kate of Cambridge, made her first appearance in public since little Princess Charlotte was born on May 2.

As his family left the palace — father Prince William on a horse wearing a bearskin cap, mother in a horse-drawn carriage — George was spotted by photographers in his nanny’s arms, laughing and excited from a palace window.

At the end of the parade of military troops, horses, bands and royal carriages, the little future king, who turns 2 next month, joined the entire royal family on the balcony, waving in the arms of his father, as his mother, grandfather Prince Charles and his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, stood nearby, watching the traditional RAF fly-past.

In one picture, the royal succession was displayed for a cheering, excited crowd. The only one missing: Princess Charlotte, the fourth-in-line, who is only six weeks old and not yet ready for royal duties.

But everyone else, including the queen, appeared delighted. George, dressed in light blue, was especially interested in the roaring jets overhead.
