On Saturday June 10th Prince William will judge the readiness of his Regiment, the Irish Guards, to Troop their Colour in front of his grandmother HM The Queen on Her official birthday on June 17th.

This is the first time he has had this duty since becoming Royal Colonel Irish Guards in 2011. He will take the Colonel's Review on Saturday 10th June on Horse Guards Parade riding his trusted mount Wellesley in front of an audience of 6,000 guests.

Captain Jimmy Parke, Irish Guards is stationed at the Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow, west London. He said: "As a battalion, this is the first time we've trooped the Colour in front of Her Majesty since 2009.

"This is a really proud moment for the Irish Guards, especially to be able to have our Royal Colonel, Prince William, on parade as well." He added that key to the preparations will be the Irish Guards' faithful mascot Domhnall, a four-year-old Irish wolfhound, who will lead out the parade. The canine mascot is unique to the Irish Guards, with each one named after ancient kings of Ireland.

Also looking forward to the big day is Captain Freddy Simpson. "This will be our first Queen's Birthday Parade with HRH the Duke of Cambridge as our Royal Colonel," he said. "We are honoured that he has granted us this privilege and that he chose to marry in our uniform. HRH the Duchess of Cambridge has been kind enough to present a shamrock to the regiment at our St Patrick's Day parade over the last few years. This weekend before the Queen's Birthday Parade we will conduct a full dress rehearsal, The Colonel’s Review, on Horse Guards Parade, at which HRH the Duke will inspect us to ensure we are ready to go."

The president of the United States is no longer allowed to ride in an open car or carriage, so why should the Queen ?

I know that may sound heretic to many posters here, but it is not fair that the Queen should put herself in danger just because she is a national symbol. Having said that, I think however that a direct attack on the Queen is unlikely.

I was totally in agreement that this is British pageantry at its best until it finally sunk into my caffeine deprived head that this was *practice*. If practice makes perfect, then next week's Trooping the Color will be extraordinary.

Also, to go ahead and do what is normally done at this time of the year to celebrate the Queen's birthday sends a clear message that the British people stand strong and united and will not buckle under the threat of terrorism in fear.

Keep calm and carry on was totally displayed by today's practice. Its not often too that one gets to see a Prince Charming on his white horse.

Again, the POTUS does not ride in open carriages as the Brits may have noticed when George W Bush and Barack Obama paid state visits to the Queen. Basically, the so-called "Secret Service", who is responsible for the president's security, does not allow him to do so. Nevertheless, at least in the US, I've never seen or heard anyone arguing that, by refusing to be in open cars, the president is buckling under fear or weakening the national resolve.

In the end, it may be the case that the personal threat to the Queen or other members of the Royal Family is perceived to be low enough to warrant a calculation that the negative impact of the people seeing the Queen in a closed carriage would outweigh the potential benefits in terms of increased security. I just don't think it should be such a big deal. In other words, I agree that calling off public ceremonies altogether would be a mistake and would definitely send signs of weakness, but adding common sense extra security to scheduled events is reasonable and proportionate IMHO.

I miss the app too. I wonder what happened to it? It used to be easy to use it instead of tvpc and other sites. I'm going to try to watch the Trooping, but I think BBC America and the BBC News should also broadcast the event.

I just checked my BBCA channel and Trooping the Color is not listed at all as part of what will be shown. Its a shame as I would think they would televise it.

Eventually it will be on YouTube and that's where I'll watch it.

A message from our beloved, amazing history-making Queen with her Record Breaking Reign who truly is (as a commentator said yesterday) Elizabeth the Great:

https://www.royal.uk/queens-official-birthday-2017
Quote:
Today is traditionally a day of celebration. This year, however, it is difficult to escape a very’ sombre national mood. In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of terrible tragedies.

As a nation, we continue to reflect and pray for all those who have been directly affected by these events. During recent visits in Manchester and London, I have been profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need.

Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity. United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss.

ELIZABETH R

BBC America is basically useless for watching anything going on in the U.K. They never really show any of going on in the U.K. If you want some Star Trek Next Gen, it's great but if you want to watch Trooping or the State Opening of Parliament not so much. It did show some of the Diamond Jubilee stuff back in 2012 and it used to have select Six Nations rugby matches but that was several years ago.

Nice to see Philip and Edward Kent in morning dress today.

Surprised to not see Sophie or her children in a carrriage this year. Perhaps someone is unwell.
