The Queen’s Official Birthday & Trooping of the Colour

The Queen’s Official Birthday & Trooping of the Colour

The trooping of the colour has marked the official birthday of the British Monarch for over 260 years. The celebration features more than 140,000 uniformed soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians from all around the Commonwealth. Traditionally, people line the streets to get a glimpse of the Royal family and the celebration closes with an RAF air display, watched by members of the Royal family from Buckingham Palace balcony.
