The Duke of Cambridge, Colonel of the Irish Guards, (wearing the Order of the Garter) carried out the Colonel’s Review of Trooping the Colour on May 28th at Horse Guards Parade. The Colonel’s Review is the final evaluation of the parade before it goes before the Queen during the Trooping of the Colour on the 2d June as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. This year, the honour of Trooping their Colour falls to the Irish Guards and as Colonel of the Regiment, and the Duke lead the final review. During the parade more than 1,500 soldiers and 350 horses carried out complex battlefield drill manoeuvres to a programme of music. Last week, the Duke presented the 1st Battalion Irish Guards with their New Colours during a ceremony at Windsor Castle.

I had the pleasure of seeing the Duke at the end of the Review.
