Trooping The Colour For the Queen 2018 On Her Official 92nd Birthday



Saturday, 9 June, the Coldstream Guards will Troop their Colour for The Queen's Birthday Parade, a ceremony that has marked the official birthday of the Sovereign for over 260 years.


Although the Queen actually turned 92 on April 21, 2018, the official celebration is always in June when weather is generally more predictable.


It is always made extra special when the guard of honour on this occasion...the one of the Queen's Brigade Of Guards regiment presenting the Colours for the Trooping in Her Majesty's honour...falls in rota to the Coldstream Guards, as that was my husband's regiment.


Last year, the Queen and the Duke rode in a carriage, as she has done for the last several years....


Until 1982, the Queen always rode herself, until an attempted assasination during the procession down the Mall...


Now it's her kids and grandkids who ride during the procession...


And the climax is always the Buckingham Palace balcony gathering with a military fly over...I assume the new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, will join Prince Harry! Probably not Prince Louis though...and perhaps Princess Eugenie's fiance? Fun!


Happy (Official) 92nd Birthday
