Trooping the Colour

The Queen celebrated her official birthday with the Trooping the Colour parade in central London. Her son and heir's statement ("I hope it will go on for as long as possible because I think the world would be a sadder, drearier and greyer place without it") perfectly sums up how I feel about monarchy in general.

In the first picture in the article you linked to, is that Princess Anne in a man's military uniform?
