@hrhthedukeofyork as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, who “trooped” today as part of The Queen’s Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour, has sent the following message to those who took part. “To all on parade today I wish to send you my congratulations on an outstanding Queen's Birthday Parade. Last week I had the privilege of being your reviewing officer & that was magnificent; but this parade surpassed that. “Your march past in both slow and quick time were faultless. You had to overcome some testing conditions in the wind and you did it in superlative style, panache and discipline. I know Her Majesty was brimming with pride at her Grenadiers and I couldn't be more proud to be your Colonel. Thank you for all the work you have put in to making today's parade one we will always remember.” Colonel Andrew.
