Queen marks official birthday with pomp and parade

LONDON — The Queen is marking her official birthday with the annual Trooping the Color parade, a conventional show of British pageantry.

About 1,400 troopers in ceremonial scarlet coats and bearskin hats march previous the queen in a ceremony on Horse Guards Parade in Westminster.

Royals participating included Prince Charles, Prince William and his spouse Kate, and Prince Harry and his spouse Meghan.

Hundreds of spectators have lined the parade floor and gathered in close by St. James’s park to look at the spectacle.

The ceremony originated from conventional preparations for battle. The colors — or flags — have been “trooped,” or carried down the traces of troopers, in order that they may very well be seen and acknowledged in battle. The regimental flag being paraded this yr is from the first Battalion Grenadier Guards.
