Brandon and I spent a few days in England visiting both York and London. One of the highlights of our trip was watching the Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s birthday celebration. Her real birthday is in April, but each year they celebrate it in June with a parade and inspection of the troops.
Not only was it pretty cool to see the Queen and other members of the Royal family, but the British Soldiers looked amazing! Looking sharp in their dress uniforms, it is easy to think of this as just a celebration for the Queen, however, it was wonderful to watch the troops, many of them Veterans who have returned from combat tours. It was really an incredible event.
