1. The Queen was received with applause, and some of the people she meet said they were in tears after they meet her.

2. The Heckler wanted the 91 year old Queen to come to him. Her Majesty hesitated a bit and was asked by the security guards to get into her car. He then shouted at William. Afterwards he jelled at the others because they had applaused the Queen and he was angry that HM and William had not done anything about the fire safety in London.

He obviously did not understand what a constitutional monarchy is and many became angry with him.

3. The trolls in the DF comments section are a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic, ignorant, sick, spiteful bullies who hates everyone. But they represents a very tiny minority of the UK public, and many of them are from other countries.

4. And as I wrote in this thread:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1989402

It's also nice to see how popular Her Majesty is. Her Ipsos MORI and YouGov approval ratings are at 80-90%, and she has since 2014 been polled the most admirred person/woman in the UK (also in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany in 2016).

Almost everyone I know in the UK likes her and almost all the comments on The Royal Family, the British Monarchist League and the British Monarchist Society & Foundation facebook pages are positive (in the last few weeks really heartwarming)

Even many of the ignorant and evil minded thugs in the DF comment section (the best rated comments) and on twitter likes her.

5. This thread is about the Trooping the colour and again it made me proud to half British.

I love this picture:

Prince George and Princess Charlotte looks wonderful. They are clearly the future of the BRF.

Where was Princess Michael and Princess Alexandra?

There's a nice and funny family moment from 2:10 :

Camilla is pointing to the Queen a hidden stool apparently placed here for George. Then the info is given to the Duke, asking to Kate if the object will be useful. Apparently yes because if you look closely, the hidden stool is discretly pushed from Camilla to Kate thanks to the royal feets... At the end George is finally able to enjoy the show !

Yes it was very sweet...and then later did you see William grabbing for George as he was moving around toward the balcony? Being up there with young kids would make me a bit nervous as well...I noticed Kate kept a grip on Charlotte too! <G>

I get nervous too. Young children in my family for example were never allowed to get close to windows or balconies without some kind of protective barrier. But we are just common people, not royalty who has to wave to their dutiful subjects and look good on camera !

Is such a large family gathering at the balcony really necessary ? What happened to a slimmed-down , core royal family ?

Well the 'slimmed down' idea is always associated with Charles rather than the current Queen. She always seems quite happy to invite all her children, grandchildren, cousins and their families to the Palace on this day and likewise always welcomes them/allows them onto the balcony. If she didn't want to she wouldn't. Of course things may change in the future but for now it seems something of a tradition that the Queen invites them all to attend, maybe she does so as it gives them a fixed point to all get together, this always takes place in the summer, the Christmas lunch at BP in Winter, ensuring the extended family all come together at least twice a year.

I think when Charles is King, the Kent and Gloucester families will dissapear from the balcony.
Then it will just be the King, his wife, his sons, daugthers-in-law with their children and the Kings' brothers and sister with their families. This is my guess.
Still a large gathering but less so than the present situation.
But I could be wrong and that it will just be the King with his family.

Thanks for your answer, Tommy100.

I understand what you say, but it just strikes me as odd. The Duke of Kent, the Duke of Gloucester, Prince Michael and Princess Alexandra are HRHs themselves so it makes sense that they would be there, but their children and grandchildren are not royals and are not even closely related to the Queen, unlike Princess Anne's children for example (who are not royals either, but at least are closer relatives to the Queen). Nothing against it and it certainy doesn't hurt, but it is a little bit too much IMHO.

Trooping the Colour 2003-2017

The whole family is out there for 15 minutes. You would not even see the extended family on the tv coverage because they focus on the Queen and the people immediately around her. They are there because the Queen wants them there and it's her official birthday celebration. Just like they all get invited for pre Christmas BP lunch. What harm is the extended family on the balcony doing? None that I can see.

I guess they are also there on the balcony because they are watching a fly past, whilst its turned into a 'balcony appearance' by the media its actually also a view point for the RF to watch the flypast. I guess the Queen, having invited them to attend, would feel rude asking them to watch the flypast on TV or in the back garden.

It was great to see the photos and videos from Trooping the Colour today.
It's nice that Savannah and Isla are on the balcony this time, though it was a shame to see that Sophie, Louise and James were absent. I hope that everything was alright, considering that the Wessexes have always been 'regulars' at Trooping the Colour and also that Edward was on the balcony this year. George and Charlotte are adorable as usual. Charlotte definitely seems to have quite the lively personality. I hope that Mia will get to join her cousins next year!
