Just watching live...

I have never seen them play The National Anthem while The Queen is still in her carriage. I don't think she looked too impressed. Someone clearly jumped the gun.

I really like that it was made that The Queen don't have to step out of carriage twice. She's been having to need support going down steps of late.

I noticed the same thing in a video of the rehearsal last week. I actually think it's intentional, so she doesn't have to go up and down the steps of the carriage so many times.

Trooping the Colour is everytime an impressive event.

Is The Duke of Cambridge riding the white horse?

Yeah, noticed that too, even thought P.Philip automatically made a move to stand up, but obviously couldn't in a riding carriage...

When the carriage of P.Harry and the duchesses arrived i thought i saw someone waving at them from one of the windows...maybe Louise or James?

I did wonder as much, HRH nearly leapt to his feet in the carriage! I suppose we will see small changes creeping in to accommodate age but I bet HM is the one who really wants to stick with the old form!

Lovely picture of #PrinceGeorge waving from the window of Buckingham Palace at his dad below #TroopingTheColour

Looks like George will be making his first balcony appearance this year. He's a big boy now.

Did you hear that she just had a baby? One could not tell from how she looked in that carriage.

I was just sitting here thinking how very differently this would be covered here in the US. That Matt Lauer would have explained what every tune played was. And then suddenly there was this little side piece on the Master of the band. And then they introduced the first march and named the base drummer. Matt Lauer indeed.

Whatever color the Queen is wearing, I just want to say it looked great with the carriage!

Anyway, I'm just thrilled to live in a world where I can wake up and live stream Trooping the Color.

As soon as the photo of George in the window emerged...I wondered how long until this side by side would appear.... Did not have to wait long

Trooping the Colour 2003-2015

George is so sweet! I wonder who the little girl in the picture is?

I also saw someone waving from the window at horse guards as the first carriages arrived but it was too far to see who it could be.

So far the execution of the parade leaves room for desire. Is it me or are the detachments of the Guards a bit sloppy? I see unequal distances between the detachments, and within the detachments the straight lines are not according the standards of past years. It is not the absolute perfection I am usually used to, when watching the Birthday Parade. But okay, it is still going on. Now the Quick March Past.

How many horses are involved in the ceremony?

My four-year-old son is also watching (is the first touch with the world of royalty) and he asked me!

The Queen is celebrating her official birthday in London this morning with the annual Trooping the Colour march along Horse Guards Parade in London.

The monarch, who turned 89 this year, was taken past cheering crowds in a horse-drawn carriage alongside husband Prince Philip, wearing full bearskin hat and accompanying red tunic which he is entitled to wear as he is Colonel of the Welsh Guards and Grenadier Guards.

Price Harry, also dressed in full military regalia, was seen in another horse drawn carriage along with the Duchess of Cambridge, making her first appearance since giving birth to Princess Charlotte last month.
