We really are world leaders at Pomp and Ceremony. Trooping of the Colours is very impressive, as always. 🇬🇧🇬🇧

We really are !

Far better than the 'show of strength' military parades that some not-so-friendly states put on. 

But never forget - these are still fighting soldiers that can and will go to war to protect our country and freedom. 

Very proud of them :default_trophy:

Wow - that flypast down The Mall and over the Palace, amazing. 

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight always brings goosebumps. Normally you only have 3 aircraft in the formation, today it was 5

And the '70' formation flight was something special !

As far as I am concerned, she got there for the Trooping, so that is the job done!   Seventy years not out.  If she doesn't appear on the balcony in future, I wish her a happy and uniquely well deserved retirement!  The "Firm" is obviously well able to support her.

Interesting to see Prince Charles taking the parade on horseback.  The last time the Queen did it was 1986 I believe.  A foresight of what we shall see when Charles eventually succeeds.

What do I remember of it?  Excellent marching drill to the highest standards and of course, the sound of eight Rolls Royce Merlin engines, under power!

We had to do the catch up tv thing for the trooping of the colour which I thought was fantastic

(Did anyone see the unseated rider then the horse carrying on without him?)

Made me feel very proud of the pomp and pageantry, no other country can do this like us Brits eh?

Then last night the Platinum party at the Palace - Wow, now that is how to put on a show.  So proud of the Queen and the nation as a whole :default_beerchug:  Huge 'BZ'
