The Queen's Birthday Parade Summary

The Queen's Birthday Parade: Trooping the Colour by Julian Calder

What is The Queen's Birthday Parade? What lies behind this annual celebration by five Regiments of Foot Guards, essentially a private ceremony in a public place, showing, through historic military drill, their personal duty to their Sovereign and Colonel in Chief? What does it stand for, why is it so celebrated and why is it so uniquely British? Julian Calder has observed the Parade and its rehearsals for over 20 years, photographing the spectacular pageantry and the minute attention to detail that contributes to this familiar annual event. His photographs, and the accompanying text by Alastair Bruce, Sky News' Royal, Religious and Constitutional Affairs Commentator, past commanding officers and serving soldiers giving the history and personal experiences of the Parade, demonstrate the pride, precision and performance that are synonymous with the Trooping the Colour: the Parade which, in the minds of millions of British people and visitors, is at the heart of the United Kingdom. 420 colour photographs including a unique portrait of HM the Queen, specially taken for the book, with soldiers from all the regiments taking part in the Parade and their colours. Foreword by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh
