Trooping of the Colour
I was in London a week or so ago and was lucky enough to see a trial run through of the preparations for the Trooping of the Colour this Saturday. It made me so proud to be English because we do pageantry like no other country on earth! I guided Keith and Leah, two delightful Americans, around St James' yesterday and their tour coincided with the Changing of the Guard ceremony - we saw some of the action at Friary Court and the Mall and then raced over to Wellington Barracks to see the new guard march across to the forecourt of Buckingham Palace. It was a fantastic experience and Keith and Leah loved it!!
