Trooping the Colour – The Queen’s Official Birthday
Posted By Claire on June 16, 2012
Today is the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II and it will be marked by the annual Trooping of the Colour ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies.
You can find out more at the British Monarchy website – click here – where you will also find photos and archive footage.
It has been announced that the Duke of Edinburgh will be attending today’s ceremony, which is good news after his recent illness.
Trivia: The Queen’s actual birthday is the 21st April.

Claire I watch the whole ceremony,it was fab!! Everything went very well,exspet that spot of rain.The colours were stunning,and the horses were so well behaved ,with all the people and noise.I think it went off great! I also watch the wedding and zoomed in on my flat screen,so it looks like your right there,as I want to down load this Historic event in my photo albume.It’s really easy to do and truely looks like your there.So for those of you that can’t make these great events ,get your zoom on,and you will have pic to down load.
