O que é Trooping The Colour?

Acordei, liguei a TV, um evento acontecendo em Londres... não tinha a mínima ideia do que se tratava Trooping the Colour, então fui pesquisar e descobri que: o Trooping the Colour é uma cerimônia realizada pelos regimentos militares britânicos e dos exércitos dos Reinos das Nações. 

Embora o aniversário real da Rainha seja no dia 21 de abril, - nesse dia ela comemora só com os íntimos! Historicamente, por causa do Rei Eduardo VII(1841-1910), o monarca britânico celebra um segundo aniversário 'oficial' no segundo sábado de junho de cada ano. Isso porque comemorar o aniversário em Abril, no inverno, não é nada agradável por aqui. A cerimônia colorida, também conhecida como "Cortejo de Aniversário da Rainha", é transmitida ao vivo pela BBC.

Mais de 1400 soldados, 200 cavalos e 400 músicos se reúnem a cada junho em uma grande demonstração de precisão militar, equitação e muita fartura para marcar o aniversário oficial da rainha.

MILITARY EXCELLENCE CELEBRATES MONARCH’S OFFICIAL BIRTHDAY 

The Army performed its finest display of military pageantry to celebrate the Official Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen today on Horse Guards Parade in London.  One thousand one hundred soldiers from the Household Division were joined by almost 250 immaculately groomed military horses, six blindingly polished First World War 13-Pounder Guns and 350 military musicians at the ancient annual ceremony known as Trooping the Colour.  The Royal family watched from the balcony of Wellington’s office, and more than 8,500 guests including the Prime Minister, foreign dignitaries, and Defence Chiefs of Staff, filled the stands on Horse Guards, while tens of thousands of the public lined the route, as The Royal Colonels: The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of Kent, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, and The Princess Royal, accompanied Her Majesty in stately procession down the Mall to inspect the Parade.The Queen’s Birthday Parade, more popularly known as Trooping the Colour, is a great British tradition and one of the most complex and labour intensive events the military stages.  Countless hours of planning and preparation go into making sure that the final result is as close to perfection as humanly possible in honour of Her Majesty, their Colonel in Chief.  
The Soldiers were on parade in the traditional ceremonial uniforms of the Household Cavalry, Royal Horse Artillery, and Foot Guards. The Welsh Guards were easily identifiable by their green and white plumed bearskins and their buttons in rows of five to indicate their place as the fifth regiment of Foot Guards. 
All those on parade then processed back down the Mall delivering Her Majesty safely back to Buckingham Palace.
As the Royal Family appeared on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to the delight of the thousands crowded round the Queen Victoria Memorial, the Red Arrows performed a flypast.

No passado, a Rainha costumava participar a cavalo. Mas com a idade chegando ao centenário, ela prefere andar de carruagem agora. No dia, a realeza viaja em procissão através da carruagem puxada por cavalos do Palácio de Buckingham, ao longo do The Mall até à Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall e vice-versa. Depois que as bandas militares se apresentaram, a cor regimental, ou a bandeira, escoltada é processada pelas fileiras de soldados. Mais de cem palavras de comando são usadas pelo Oficial em Comando da Parada para dirigir as várias centenas de soldados.

Uma vez que os guardas de pé passarem pela Rainha, ela volta para o Palácio de Buckingham à frente dos soldados, antes de fazer a saudação para cumprimentar multidões e assistir ao espetacular vôo da RAF.

A cerimônia Trooping the Colour deste ano a familia real teve uma nova adição, já que é a primeira vez da Duquesa de Sussex na varanda do Palácio de Buckingham, com toda a family.

A  enorme família da rainha também aparece na varanda junto com seus familiares mais próximos. É verdadeiramente um grande evento de celebração para a Monarca junto com o País e a família. 👸🇬🇧
