Trooping the Colour
Today is Her Majesty's official birthday, marked by the annual Trooping the Colour parade, of which the Mail has great pictures and the BBC has great video. This is the sort of spectacle that makes Britain truly Great, even with all the problems of the 21st century. I never fail to be moved and impressed by the greatest pageantry on earth; no one does it like the British, and I wish the UK were my country. Given that I live in the US however, I regret that I could not be present in Los Angeles last night for the LA monarchists' Grand Birthday Celebration; I'm sure it too was a splendid event.
