Queen’s Platinum Jubilee: Trooping the Colour parade, military pageant through London streets | LIVE

Scheduled to begin at 6:00 am ET. Queen Elizabeth II’s annual birthday parade will kick off four days of Platinum Jubilee festivities on June 2, when more than 1,200 officers and soldiers of the 1st Battalion and the Irish Guards will put on a display of military pageantry through the streets of London, U.K.

They will be joined by hundreds of army musicians and approximately 240 horses. This livestream will show a variety of shots from the Buckingham Palace forecourt, along the Mall, Horse Guards Parade, and gun salute at Hyde Park. Once the parade has ended and the procession has returned to the palace, the Royal Family will make a balcony appearance, as they do every year. The Queen is the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years of service and will be honoured for the work she’s done for the people of the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and the Realms.
