Trooping the Colour 2021

The Queen was accompanied by her cousin, the Duke of Kent and Colonel of the Scots Guards as she viewed the Military Parade in the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle to mark Her Majesty’s Official Birthday, on June 12th. The Trooping of the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 250 years, but unlike previous years, this year’s grand ceremony in London was cancelled, like last year, due to the ongoing pandemic.

  1. Today’s event was a perfect balance between a full event and one tempered by the pandemic situation. It was quite a bit larger than last year’s, but still contained to the few hundreds who were participating and viewing. The Queen looked lovely in her gray outfit, adorned with the beautiful aquamarine brooch that belonged to her mother. I loved the pipers, the horses marching with the WWI canons, the flypast. Everything looked marvelous! It was a nice taste of what we can expect for next year’s jubilee trooping!
