The Queen has marked the 70th anniversary of the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery at Hyde Park in London.

As Captain General of the King's Troop, she inspected the unit which plays an important role at major state and royal events.

After the parade the Queen attended a reception to meet soldiers and veterans of the Troop, including Percy Austen who was serving in 1947 when George VI inspected the parade.

The Queen didn't let a little shower dampen her spirits as she rode with her head through the sunroof on Thursday.

The 91-year-old monarch, who looked resplendent in pink, joined officers as they stood with their heads through the roof of her Range Rover to arrive at Hyde Park in London to mark the 70th anniversary of the King's Troop Royal.

The Queen, who looked vibrant in a bold pink suit and matching hat, is Captain General of the King's Troop and received a royal salute before she inspected the unit in a parade.

Standing in a state review Land Rover, the Queen was driven passed the massed ranks of the King's Troop Royal Artillery - formed in October 1947 at the request of the King who wanted a troop of horse artillery to take part in the great ceremonies of state.
Videos from ITN:

The Queen reviewed The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Hyde Park, to mark the battalion's 70th anniversary. Dressed in pink, the monarch recieved a royal salute before taking a ride in a Range Rover to inspect the troop. The Royal Artillery provides firepower to the British Army and is equipped with 13-pounder field guns which date back to the First World War.

This folks is why we bother with the Daily Mail. For the snaps they pick. The choice of photos in the "Rain on her Parade" piece is nothing short of spectacular. If you don't tear up looking at them, you may just be having a really bad day. And the pictures might just turn that around.

And I read neither the copy not the comments. Because, neither of those is why we bother with the Daily Mail.

Itís not his name, itís a title. I donít know who this particular man is, but many Middle Eastern royal families are very involved in the racing world. Think Sheik of Dubai and Princess Haya, for example.

^ The Crown Prince of Dubai was present this year too. They and other sheikhs from the Gulf states/Middle East are quite close to the BRF, and to Prince Charles in particular. They come and bring their families and enjoy Ascot. Sometimes sons go to Sandhurst, like the King of Jordan's son.
