Trooping The Colour

The Sovereign's birthday is officially celebrated by the ceremony of Trooping the Colour (King's Birthday Parade) and members of our team were in London at the weekend to enjoy this fabulous spectacle. Thank you to West Midlands Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association.


In 2023, this impressive display of pageantry took place on Saturday 17th June by Regiments of the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with His Majesty The King attending and taking the salute.


The Trooping of the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. 2023 marked His Majesty King Charles III’s first Trooping of the Colour as Sovereign. Over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians came together in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The King’s official birthday.


The parade moved from Buckingham Palace and down The Mall to Horse Guard's Parade, alongside Members of the Royal Family on horseback and in carriages. The display closed with an RAF fly-past, watched by Members of the Royal Family from Buckingham Palace balcony.
