But she's not in the front. Why do you insist that she is? Prince and Princess Michael are quite obviously in the second row. -> Balcony pic

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see Lady Louise Windsor on the balcony this year. With even the Earl of St Andrews and other "supporting" cast you'd think the Wessex children would be visible at this event at least! If I missed it--sorry!

Neither Louise nor James were on the balcony.

Trooping the Colour

I will be in London during the Trooping the Colour only to line up along the Mall. Does anyone know how long before the parade starts that I should be there to get a front row space?

The actual ceremonial at Horsequards starts at 11.00am sharp; the Royals drive along the Mall from about 10.45am; the Foot Guards / bands / Cavalry etc start marching down the Mall from about 9.45 -10.00am.

In order to get to the front [as the Mall is usually lined 'several rows deep', I honestly would not like to leave it much beyond 9am. Another thought; security searches usually only take place for those entering Horse Guards Parade, however, with the recent Bin Laden events, there is an increasing emphasis on Security, and I would not be totally suprised if there were more 'search points' around the Mall, which could all take time......

One other alternative I could suggest [and would be my own choice if I was not lucky enough to be going to the Ceremony] is that you don't bother with the Mall and instead make your way to the part of St James's Park that actually borders Horse Guards Parade, because then you can observe some of what is going on - and in fact you get a particularly good view of the mounted regiments 'waiting to do their stuff'. 'The Troop' i.e. the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and their spectacular gun carriages will be particularly close to you - a better view than those lucky enough to be attending the actual ceremony will get [although wait for the bangs when the firing starts!!!]

As the Parade starts to draw to a conclusion [JUST before Queen leaves in her Phaeton etc], I would then trot briskly back through the Park and rush back to Buckingham Palace, where you should be able to get fairly near to the front [whilst everyone else is 'pinned between the barriers' in the Mall whilst the Queen and her troops march back down the Mall]. Hopefully you should arrive at BP just at the Queen rolls up......

All is not totally lost if you get your timing a bit wrong and arrive several rows back at the Palace, because you will see the Royal Family on the Balcony very easily, as you just have to look up - whereas if you are several rows back in the Mall, you won't see that much. Apart from a splendid turn out of the BRF, cast your eyes skyward [this will be around 12.30pm ish] and you will see the Fly Past, usually with some Red / White / Blue patriotic smoke trails....

Hope this all helps; above all, have a great day.
[Top Secret - the Loos at the Institute of Contemporary Arts on the Mall are the nearest 'facility' [free]!

Any more questions? Ask here or PM me.

Alex

I saw this and was excited about the day until I read another article from the practice:

Tragedy at the Queen's salute: horse is put down after being run over by a gun carriage.

How sad. :(

Photos of William during last rehearsal this morning for the Trooping the colour. He is on his horse and wears his Irish uniform. This info was right for once.

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!).
