I am frequently on the British Monarchy website and in the future engagements section it said nothing about the Trooping of the Colour for this year. Maybe I missed something?

You can find Trooping the Colour on the 'Royal Events and Ceremonies' page (between 'I' and 'R'!):

I would imagine that everyone will be present (schedule premitting). This is one of the few chances to see extended extended members of the BRF present. By extended I mean the kids of the Lady Helen Taylor, Marina Mowatt, James Olgivy, etc.

Most of the attention, more than likely, will be on Catherine and the Queen (of course!).

Please may I help with a little information here?

Trooping the Colour [Never Trooping OF The Colour] commences formally at 11.00am tomorrow, Saturday June 11 2011. In practice, the build up to the ceremony starts around 10.15 or so, as the Guardsmen bearing the marker flags arrive and then the bandsmen. [The so-called 'March On'.]

10 minutes or so before the arrival of the Queen and the DofE in Queen Victoria's Phaeton, a carriage containing (usually) Camilla, but perhaps this time Catherine, arrives! Other members of the BRF arrive by car and usually watch from windows of the buildings that are, in effect, the HQ of the British Armed Forces. The 4 Royal Colonels [ Prince of Wales, Duke of Kent, The Princess Royal and the new Duke of Cornwall then arrive (mounted) in the Royal Procession. i.e. ahead of the Queen's Phaeton.

The Colour being 'trooped' tomorrow is that of The Scots Guards.

I would expect that Catherine, Sophie, Prince Edward, possible the DofY and Beatrice and Eugenie will all be watching from the windows, if previous years are anything to go by.

The Colour being 'trooped' tomorrow is that of The Scots Guards.


Coverage is usually on BBC1, starting with the March On.

The Televised part of the Ceremony ends about 12.15, and concludes with the Queen's procession going back to BP down the Mall. Although the tv cameras have stopped rolling at that point, the BRF then appear on the balcony for the all-important fly-past. There is usually a good gathering of all Royals and usually some of the younger children [e.g. those of Edward and Sophie] are present on the balcony.

The BBC then run a hightlights programme in the evening, and this programme ALWAYS included the fly-past 'balcony scenes' [usually on BBC2]

Here is Diarist's 'secret tip'. It is a very well known 'open secret' that Princess Michael of Kent, never a shrinking violet always does her VERY best to position herself directly behind the Queen on the balcony, as she cannily knows that the cameras will pick her up best there [which would not be the case so much if she took what many feel to be her more 'proper' place - i.e. towards the 'end of the line'.] Watch and see if I am right! [When I worked full time, people in my office actually used to place money (bets) that 'Princess Pushy' [as she is universally still known to many people, unkind or not] would be taking her place behind the Queen.

I am lucky enough to be going tomorrow. I have to be seated by 10.00 and since I have to pass through security [I am in Stand J, just in front of No. 10 Downing Street] I am planning to be there shortly after 9.00am as there is a long queue for the screening [bag checks, metal frame to walk through etc, sniffer dogs].

Afterwards, I have the honour to be attending a Reception held by the Guards [not at BP though!!]

I hope this helps

Diarist

Dear Diarist,

Congratulations on attending the Trooping the Colour tomorrow. I hope you have a good seat and a great view of it all.
Please give us a report and let us all know any little hints for attending. I plan on going next year (Jubilee Year) and would be interested in your views..
Thanks,
Larry

Am I the only one hoping Lady Louise will make an appearance on the Balcony at Buckingham Palace? Perhaps since the wedding Sophie and Edward will have let up on their over-protection of Louise, as she was seen at the Windsor Show quite openly.

Either way, I cannot wait to see what all the ladies are wearing! Highlight of the day really, haha.

Will they show all the members of extended royal family present at the ceremony or just main ones?

They normally show camera shots of various members of the Royal family at the windows of the surrounding buildings, however it's normally only members like Prince Harry, Prince Andrew etc. (The "well known" members.) I could be wrong, however, and this year they may show others. The majority, if not all, of the extended family, however, do make an appearance on the balcony.

If I have the time difference right, things should getting close to starting across the Pond in London. I wish we in Canada could somehow watch it live.

BTW...I have this funny feeling that Princess Pushy won't be anywhere near HM this year on the Balcony, but instead, as close to Catherine as she can get. It stands to reason after all most pictures seen the next day will be of the Newest Member of TRF, so...*shrugs*

That's just me of course, but it wouldn't shock me either to see that ends up being the case.

Duchess of Cambridge looks lovely. Adore her headwear. I have a feeling they're going to hone in on Catherine today.
Lady Louise is in the carriage with the Earl and Countess of Wessex and who appears to be Princess Eugenie.
Lady Louise looked adorable. I cannot wait to see those images now. I am so glad she made an appearance.

How hard it must be to play music and control a horse.
The Queen has an umbrella.

Great ceremony, as every year!

Kate looked pretty in the carriage, Camilla very regal and a lovely outfit for HM. Especially William does a good job, IMO.
I hope we get to see many family members on the balcony this year.

The Duchess of Cornwall (left) and the Duchess of Cambridge leave Buckingham Palace, London, by horse drawn carriage to attend Trooping the Colour, the Queen's annual birthday parade.

I've never really taken much notice of 'Trooping the Colour' before, but so far it has been nice to watch. The Queen looks lovely in her light blue dress and hat and it looks like William is doing well riding in his first 'Trooping the Colour' parade.
