A very royal occasion! Members of the royal family — 53 in total! — attended the annual National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, June 10. The event honored Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, though she officially celebrated the milestone birthday on April 21.

The British monarch, clad in a yellow Angela Kelly outfit, arrived with her husband, Prince Philip, about 11 minutes late due to London traffic. The service also fell on the same day as Philip’s 95th birthday, and they marked the occasion with traditional gun salutes.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, joined the Queen for the engagement, as did Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate, who stunned in a light blue Catherine Walker coat and Jane Taylor hat. Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 13 months, stayed home and were not present for the ceremony. The youngest attending royal was Queen Elizabeth’s youngest grandchild, 8-year-old James, Viscount Severn, the son of Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
