Trooping The Colour

  Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and
 Commonwealth armies. It has been a tradiction of British infantry regiments since the
 17th century,hough the roots go back much  earlier.

 Since 1748 Trooping the Colour has also  marked the official     birthday of the British sovereign. It is held in London annually              on a Saturday
 in  June on Horse Guards Parade by St. James's Park, and    coincides with the publication of 
the  Birthday Honours List. Among the audience are the Royal                   Family, invited guests, 
     ticketholders and the general public.
The Queen travels down The Mall from 
Buckingham Palace in a royal procession 
with a sovereign's escort of Household Cavalry.
 After receiving a royal salute, she inspects her
troops of the  Household Division, both foot 
guards and horse guards, and the King's Troop, 
Royal Horse Artillery. Each year, one of the 
foot-guards regiments is selected to troop its
colour through the ranks of guards. Then 
the entire Household Division assembly 
conducts a march past the Queen, who                             reveives a salute from the saluting base.
