King Charles Iii Leads Trooping The Colour Parade In London To Celebrate Official Birthday

King Charles III, the reigning monarch, will lead the Trooping the Colour Parade in London on Saturday to celebrate his official birthday. The annual spectacle will take place at Horse Guards Parade, known for its music, majesty, and military precision.

The celebrations will be broadcast live on BBC One starting at 10:30am with Clare Balding as the presenter. The Irish Guards will troop their colour, followed by the iconic RAF flypast and the balcony appearance of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace.

Thousands of officers, soldiers, horses, and musicians, totaling over 1,400 participants, will partake in the two and a half hour ceremony. Despite earlier health challenges, King Charles III will attend the event, riding in a carriage as advised by doctors.

The Trooping the Colour procession will kick off at Buckingham Palace, then proceed along The Mall, pass through Horse Guards Parade, and return to the Palace for the finale. The parade is a highlight of the Sovereign’s calendar, celebrated on his official birthday in the summer months.

For the public, viewing spots along The Mall or the outskirts of St James's Park offer prime views of the day’s festivities. The Red Arrows flypast over Buckingham Palace will mark the conclusion of the event, drawing the attention of spectators and royal enthusiasts.
