A British royal affair: The Trooping the Colour parade
Britain once again celebrated the official birthday of its monarch Queen Elizabeth in London on Saturday, this time with the annual Trooping the Colour parade. Though the Queen's birthday falls on April 21, the parade is a long-held tradition that dates back to the 1700s.
Dressed in a bright green coat, the Queen, who celebrated her 90th birthday this year, travelled on a horse carriage with Prince Philip for the parade, which featured close to two thousand soldiers. Later, she was joined on the balcony of Buckingham Palace by Prince Charles, Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge along with their two children George and Charlotte.
