Trooping the Colour: Royals join Queen at birthday parade

Written by on June 9, 2018

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have joined the Queen for the Trooping the Colour parade to mark her 92nd birthday.

Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan, who married last month, arrived as part of the carriage procession.

Prince Philip, who retired from royal duties last year, did not attend the military parade. He turns 97 on Sunday.

Field Marshal Lord Guthrie fell from his horse during the parade and has been taken to hospital.

Lord Guthrie, 79, is the former head of the Army and then Chief of Defence Staff, the UK’s most senior military officer.

Meanwhile, a 51-year-old woman has been arrested for a public order offence after an item was thrown towards the procession.

She is currently in custody at a central London police station, the Met Police said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined senior royals including Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the event in London.

Large crowds of spectators gathered to watch Saturday’s ceremony, which saw about 1,000 soldiers march to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall.
