The colorful ‘Trooping the Color’ military parade, which takes place every year to celebrate the queen’s official birthday, is attended by around 1,500 soldiers and officers.

Elizabeth used to take part in the parade on horseback herself until 1986 – five years after a man fired six white shots at her as she rode, trying to control her startled horse in this progress. She was unharmed and the man was arrested.
