I'm glad to hear that Lord Guthrie is better. I was worried about him when he fell.

If you ever want to see how the royal family make it back home after the Trooping of the Colour, in such heavy traffic, here it is. The younger members of the royal family drive by at 3:35 mark-

Thank you for the video. The police and drivers work in excellent coordination in heavy London traffic.

My guesses are that:

> C&C were in the first convoy, bound for KP, from where they would have taken the helicopter back to Highgrove

> Anne was in the next Bentley

> The third and larger convoy was probably the York and Wessex families

> The Cambridges and Sussex' came last

Here are some photos of yesterday's rehearsals for this year's Trooping of the Colour ceremony. One poor guardsman had health problems..

I stumbled across newsreel footage of the Trooping The Colour from 1939. It was amusing to see that the antics of royal children on the balcony have always stolen the show. In particular, a three-year-old Prince Edward of Kent was giving his mother and his nanny nightmares. At one point, Princess Margaret stopped her young cousin from throwing a cushion off the balcony!

Very funny. I wonder whether the Duke ever saw that bit of footage as an adult!

I did a little bit more digging, and it turns out that the 1939 Trooping the Colour was the last one before the war. That means it was the only time young Prince Edward and Princess Alexandra of Kent would have seen their father participating, as he was killed on active duty in 1942.

They were in Canada, doesn't look like Princess Elizabeth was with them.

Princess Elizabeth missed the 1939 Trooping because she was sick. And I think there was a separate birthday salute for the king while he and the queen were on their royal tour of Canada.

"these videos are funny for basically the same, apart from the kids/planes, nothing exciting happens when the RF is on the balcony for trooping so this is funny. In 2016 a curious Prince Philip was asking about the stool on the balcony and a very sure Queen said: for George 1/2😂"

"In 2017 Prince Philip again was curious about the stool but this time he was pointing out that there was a stool for George but it was on the other side of the balcony, of course TF is a team so they all helped to bring the stool closer to George, even The Queen 😂😂 2/2"

He's certainly looking a lot more confident than when he started practising.

It looks like building up his core strength has had a good effect on his erm . . . health.

Trooping is on next Saturday. This was the rehearsal parade not the actual parade.
