The Queen’s birthday is celebrated by the Trooping of the Colour on a Saturday in early June.
Over 1,400 officers and men from the queen’s personal guard put on an impressive parade from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall and then back again.
To watch the Trooping of Colour, the public is advised to watch from The Mall or from St. James Park (and to be there by 9am). There is also ticketed seating for £40.00 which has to be applied for in advance.
A fly past of RAF jets happens at 1pm.
