I'd like to see video of the Queen coming out onto the balcony with James. Is there any yet?

Well what it is all about, the Trooping the Colour, as the title of the forum already states:

The massed bands, the Escort to the Colour, the mounted band of the Household Cavalry, the Life Guards, the Blues and Royals- as well as the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery: faultless and into perfection.

The foot guards: the men did their best but the detachments they formed were not equal in distance and the outline could be better. Especially the slow march past showed room for interpretation. Luckily the quick march past went much better.

The officers are -as often- the ones to be critical about. The Drum Majors can display a superb choreography but... the five officers were often not in line and not synchrone in their movements. There is room for improvement. The Ensign did a great job. The officer leading the King's Troop was very martial ans showy, I liked his "performance".

The Queen - nice as usual, the colour was lovely, the texture was very rich, worth a Queen
The Duchess of Cornwall- too pity she did not show a new hat but the diamond-and-emerald Prince of Wales' Feathers brooch was a nice sparkler
The Duchess of Cambridge - not so hallelujah on the outfit but what a radiant appearance
The Princesses of York - great dresses, I hope they will once ditch the litte headgear and go for real hats, preferrably with the hairs up. They are two beauties however.

A good day, today. Even the weather was better than expected.

I think he was waiting for the Queen to go first. When he was on the balcony you can see him say, "There's lots of people."

I loved how The Queen and Philip had James in the centre with Louise. That was a nice touch from granny. She knows that the press and public will be all about George but she very subtly gave her support to her youngest grandchild on his first appearance on the balcony by having him in the centre of things.


Of all the titles HM bares I suspect that one that she loves as much as any is Duchess of Edinburgh and she led the future Duke out onto the balcony with the current Duke for the first time.

I can't believe how old Xan Windsor is! He was in front of his parents in a suit like James. I can't believe how old is! I forget he's a bit older than James. I can't over what Albert Windsor was wearing....

Omgg! George turns to his dad and then points out at the crowd and waves! What a sweet adorable boy.

Thanks, that was really wonderful seeing the Queen engage with her youngest grandchild on such a momentous occasion for him.

Lovely photos from today's Trooping the Colour. James did such a fantastic job escorting his Granny. What a gentleman . The Wessex children are very well-behaved. I'm sure Edward and Sophie are proud. George was so precious, looking at everything with such curiosity and wonder. I loved his enthusiasm when he was watching his father on parade, and during the Flypast on the balcony. He was so engaged, and seemed to want to share everything with the adults around him. I'm happy to see him take part in this particular event. He seemed to handle it all like a pro.

I'm only just starting to catch up with today's royal events (weddings! Troopings!), but what a lovely family gathering. George is absolutely delightful, and I was very happily surprised to see Louise and James there even though Edward and Sophie aren't (I've seen so many articles about George making an appearance that it wasn't until I came into this thread that I even realized that the Wessex children were there; the possibility hadn't even occurred to me, since I know that Edward and Sophie are in Sweden). Isn't this only the second time that James has been on the balcony at Trooping? And I loved that he got special attention from Granny, who I'm sure must be very proud of him. He was looking so grown up in his suit! And how sweet that George is wearing his father's (and grandfather's) old outfit . . . what a nice touch. He's just adorable in every way. A lovely day, and I'm excited that I still have a lot of pictures to catch up with.

It wasn't James' first appearance on the balcony.

Thanks for the links. The children were sweet. It was fun to watch both George and James. Great shots of the monarch plus three.


Louise is such a beautiful young lady. The York sisters looked wonderful, as did Catherine and Camilla. What a great day.


ETA: It was interesting that Andrew ushered Harry to a more prominent place on the balcony. I think that puts to rest rumors that Andrew is unhappy that the focus is on the Wales family.

The Queen, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, was present at The Queen's Birthday Parade on Horse Guards Parade - June 13, 2015.

Her Majesty looks great and it was nice to see George and James on the balcony.

Thanks to all who shared the photos and videos. Trooping the Colour is probably my favourite royal event after Christmas at Sandringham. I applied for tickets this year, but I never got a response back. Oh well, perhaps next year I'll have better luck.

It's adorable to see George on the balcony this year, I love how interested he seemed in the crowds and the flypast. Catherine and Camilla seem to be quite friendly as they were chatting with each other during the carriage procession. It's also a nice surprise to see Louise and James there as I wasn't expecting them to attend since their parents are at the wedding in Stockholm. The details about James escorting HM are sweet. HM seems to be close to the Wessex children.
I do believe this is a first appearance for little Xan Windsor on the balcony too.

I kept on thinking that Harry appeared to be a bit left out during the ceremony, though I did see him interacting with Andrew once on the balcony.

Thanks Molly2101. I don't get up that early to watch anything but a significant royal wedding so I missed the Trooping. The Queen looks to be in good health and quite animated on the balcony. And, of course, George is the cutest kid ever.

Just watched the highlights of the ceremony. A couple of things struck me - firstly during the carriage procession both to and from the parade ground, the Duke could be see frequently waving to the crowds, but not the Queen which struck me as a little odd ( although she seemed in good spirits on the balcony). I was curious why the Duke left the carriage and the Queen was taken around the parade ground on her own especially as she was followed by other members of the Royal Family on horseback who are Colonels of the Regiments as is the Duke. I too noticed a less animated Harry on the balcony - the photos seem to emphasise this even more so.

Elly - I thought the family group on the balcony during the parade was a bit grumpy frumpy and tired. Harry did his best to chat there - but was a no go. So I think he just gave up. It was an odd dynamic...

And where the heck are the balcony wide photos we look at every year to see who is there and not, who has grown, who else had a cool hat (or not). I guess I will check again in the morning.

That's how they've always done it since he stopped riding about ten years ago. I'm not sure why it is since, as you say, the other colonels get to go with the Queen.
