The BBC will broadcast live coverage of Trooping the Colour today.
Live from Horse Guards Parade in London, Huw Edwards presents coverage of the world’s most famous military parade, where the Colour of the Coldstream Guards is trooped to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s official birthday.
Celebrations include the famous balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace.
Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies.
It has been a tradition of British infantry regiments since the 17th century, although the roots go back much earlier.
Since 1748 Trooping the Colour has also marked the official birthday of the British sovereign.
It is held in London annually on a Saturday in June on Horse Guards Parade by St. James’s Park, and coincides with the publication of the Birthday Honours List.
The coverage begins at 10:30am on BBC One. The BBC News Channel and Sky News will also show live coverage.
