You’ll have guessed by now how I love all of the pomp and ceremony of our royalty, if you don’t agree you might want to avoid my posts until at least Monday 😉
Today the Queen’s 90th Birthday is being marked by the trooping the colour parade, I know I’m biased but no one does all the pomp better than the Brits and we should be very proud of all of the armed forces that make this such a phenomenal sight.
More than 1,600 soldiers and 300 horses are taking part in the annual event on Horse Guards Parade.
Dressed in a bright lime green coat and matching hat with pink flower, the Queen waved to crowds as she left Buckingham Palace in a horse-drawn carriage, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh.
She has attended the annual event – also known as the Queen’s birthday parade – every year of her reign, except in 1955 when a national rail strike led to the event being cancelled.
