Trooping the Colour

Her Majesty, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, was present at The Queen's Birthday Parade on Horse Guards Parade at which The Queen's Colour of the Nijmegen Company, Grenadier Guards was trooped.

The brooch selection for the birthday parade is never a surprise these days - the Guards' Badge, covers all your badge-needing bases - but the outfit thankfully still varies. This year's pick is a repeated Angela Kelly creation, and it's not my favorite. I have to say, I prefer a little more saturated color when in the midst of so many colorful uniforms.
We'll be covering the rest of the family on the other blog on Monday, so stay tuned!

In other news: the list of the Queen's Birthday Honours for 2014 has been released, and honors are being dished out to some delightful people including Dame Maggie Smith, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Angelina Jolie. Here's hoping the Queen's up for some more investiture fun...
