Trooping the Colour

Behind the Horse Guards is Horse Guards Parade. This is the place where the Queen’s birthday parade – Trooping the Colour – takes place every year in June. The Queen’s real birthday is in April, by the way. Her birthday parade is in June, however, because the weather is usually better then.
