Today celebrates an important Topical event to the British people, as we all enjoyed watching "Trooping The Colour" on UK TV.
Join us in celebrating the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years as we go Buckingham Palace annually on the second Saturday of June with the Trooping the Colour ceremony (12th June 2021).
This two-century-old impressive display of pageantry is a grandiose parade with the Queen’s troops, The Household Division, on Horse Guards and Her Majesty the Queen herself attending and taking the salute.
Over 1400 officers and men are on parade, together with 200 horses, and over 400 musicians playing as one. The Queen travels down The Mall from Buckingham Palace in a royal procession with a sovereign’s escort of the Household Cavalry.
For those wishing to witness it, the parade is broadcast live on the BBC TV Channel in the United Kingdom.
