  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Trooping The Colour by Katie J on 16 June 2005 2:27pm
Did anyone watch the Trooping the Colour for the Queen's official birthday? I was invited along by a friend and got to sit in the parade ground. It was such a lovely morning and the guards (with their bearskin... hats on...urgh!), the horses and the musicians were fantastic. Apparently there were 1,200 men out there! Such a spectacle, even if you're not really into Royalty!

The Queen looked very sweet in her carriage and I even got to have a good stare at the Blairs! Te he!

It was nice to have a much needed (BIG) jug of Pimms afterwards as well!!
