George, Charlotte and royal kids steal the show on Palace balcony

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, had her hair pulled back in a knot, and she took the kids around to play and pet the animals at a day that was billed as "a fantastic day out for all the family".

This was Prince George, Princess Charlotte and mum Kate Middleton's first public appearance since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

Charlotte and George made the most of their day out.

George, 4, and Charlotte, 3, were seen running, jumping and laughing as they and their mom, Princess Kate, supported Prince William at the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy at Beaufort Polo Club.

Prince George has previously been spotted wearing another style from the Hampton Canvas range at Trotters called the Nantucket.

Armed man 'with a bomb' holds three inside a shop
An armed man has taken a number of people hostage, according to reports, including a pregnant woman. The suspect reportedly doused two of the hostages with gasoline after the one managed to escape.

Charlotte was certainly in higher spirits than on Saturday, when she slipped and hit her head on railings while watching Trooping the Colour.

"Completely tone deaf of Kate... to give Prince George a toy gun". In a memorable moment, certainly most talked about on social media, the seven-year-old appeared to shush her four-year-old cousin and then cover his mouth during the national anthem. The brother and sister duo were pictured playing with toys, including a slinky and walking a beam of wood practicing their balancing skills.

Take for example the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who was seen at the Beaufort Polo Club after the weekend's celebration of Trooping of Color. My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in US, but my British side agrees.

The toy gun was part of a plastic set of "SWAT" toys, and came with handcuffs and a fake knife.

But pictures from the day depicting George brandishing a toy gun cast a shadow on an otherwise happy day. This looks far too real.(And I LOVE Prince George, don't get me wrong!)'.
