The Glorious British peerless pageantry at its very best. Makes me so proud to be British.

The Queen’s actual birthday was on April 21. She turned 89!

Trooping the Color is to mark her official, public Birthday. A Royal thing.

Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies. It is a Battlefield tradition having to do with displaying once FLAGS that goes back to the 17 century.

British pomp & pageantry, particularly when it involves the poignant red poppy, makes me so proud and resolute.

This was a BIG deal and I am glad that even 70 years later we are doing the right thing the right way.

Reflect, remember be proud.
