What is Trooping the Colour?

The special event gives avid royal watchers the chance to see the modern monarchy in their element - big hats, bright colours, royal waves and all!

The event is one of the most spectacular days in the royal calendar and dates all the way back to the 17th century.

Trooping the Colour is performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies. In the past, it took place on battlefields and regiment's colours or flags were used as rallying points.

These days, Trooping the Colour is a celebratory parade in honour of the Queen's birthday - despite it actually being on April 21.

It is carried out by fully trained troops from the Household Division (Foot Guards and Household Cavalry) on Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall.
