Some members of the royal family arrive in carriages before the ceremony, ahead of the Queen's procession.

He could also arrive beforehand, not with the Queen. That's what the elderly (non-royal) colonels of the two Household Cavalry regiments did in the 90s, and then they would sit in chairs on either side of the Queen (the Duke of Edinburgh was still on a horse then).

I didn't know that The Queen and Royal Colonels used to salute The Queen Mother at the Trooping of the Colour Parade? In the video I posted of the 1986 ceremony, you will see this being done at 20:49.

Even I didnt know. I watched that clip now. The commentator just said that "she will look up to The QM" bot nothing like she will salute her.
I dont understand why The Sovereign is bound to salute to a Dowager Queen who has no constitutional postion.
Or maybe because when you wear full uniform with head-dress, salute is the only way of greeting someone, higher or lower. So that must be just a form of greeting and acknowledging the QM.
Or it may be that the salute was not for the QM but for some officer welcoming her at the saluting base. But the royal Colonels definitely saluted QM.
So someone will good knowledge on this..Please explain.
1.Do they always salute the "highest authority" on the war-office balcony?
2.When King Charles rides to saluting base, will William, Anne and other Royal Colonels salute Queen Camilla standing in the war office Balcony?

Judging by the past couple of years, the first carriages should leave the palace at 10:43 BST, and the Queen arrives at 11:00. I don't think they announce the guests in advance.

I have a video of the 1977 parade (I don't think it's anywhere online, unfortunately), and the commentator explicitly said "the Queen's first act on this parade will be to salute her mother," and then the Queen Mother was shown nodding. I imagine it's just a courtesy and not something she was bound to do.

Edit: I found it, at 19:53

10 am. you can watch live from 10:30 on BBC 1 if you're in the UK

The Queen will ride in a carriage with The Duke of Kent. The Duchess of Cambridge will ride with Prince Harry & the Duchess of Cornwall. Sophie, Prince Edward, Lady Louise, Prince Andrew and his daughters are expected too.

That shade of pale pink is beautiful on the Duchess of Cambridge.

I think the Queens hat looks beautiful from what I've seen so far.

Doesn't the Queen usually travel in an open carriage or am I getting it mixed up with another event?

Yes, it's usually open. Last year she also went in the Glass Coach, though, because of unpredictable weather. They showed the dais sitting off to the side earlier, and there was a canopy on it that's not always there.

Lovely to see the sun is currently shining - the Mall looks wonderful. I can understand caution with regard to the Queen's carriage being closed as showers are forecast. How nice to see the Duke of Kent travelling with the Queen - the perfect solution.
