Trooping the Colour in pictures

The Telegraph has published photos of this year's Trooping the Colour at The Queen's official birthday parade. The Red Arrows flew over Buckingham Palace, and the great crowd of people watching below.

Trooping the Colour is an ancient tradition. In the confusion and carnage of battle, British soldiers rallied to the colours, to defend them with their lives. They met and defeated the armies of despots. They met their own freedom-loving cousins in America, and were defeated by them.
