The British Royal Family was out in force to lead the nation for the annual Trooping the Colour Parade. Trooping the Colour is a historical event of British Royal History. It has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. This year it is marking the 91st birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The event starts at 10 AM with a carriage procession. Today it was the 1st time when the Duke of Edinburgh was not in his uniform for the official birthday parade. He accompanied the HM in a carriage for the procession.
