BB members attend Trooping the Colour

Wednesday 21st August 2019

Around 100 BB members were in London on Saturday 8th June to watch HM The Queen’s Birthday Parade on Horse Guards. Alongside Her Majesty The Queen, the parade was also attended by The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, The Duke of York and The Princess Royal.

During her reign The Queen has attended Trooping the Colour every year except 1955 when it was cancelled because of the general strike. Over 1400 parading soldiers, almost 300 horses and 400 musicians from The Household Division and The Household Cavalry took part in the ceremony.

The BB members joined hundreds of members from other youth organisations including The Girls’ Brigade and Scouts in a special youth enclosure. After watching the parade they made the their way up The Mall to Buckingham Palace for the balcony appearance and flypast. It was a fantastic experience for all the young people who attended. If your Company is interested in attending next year, watch out for details in the eBB news.
