Trooping the Colour 2017 – Live TV Coverage on BBC One

The BBC will broadcast live coverage of Trooping the Colour today.

Live from Horse Guards Parade in London, Huw Edwards presents coverage of the world’s most famous military parade, where the 1st Battalion Irish Guards troop their colour, to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s official birthday.

Celebrations include the famous balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace and a flypast by the Red Arrows.

Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies.

It has been a tradition of British infantry regiments since the 17th century, although the roots go back much earlier.

Since 1748 Trooping the Colour has also marked the official birthday of the British sovereign.

It is held in London annually on a Saturday in June on Horse Guards Parade by St. James’s Park, and coincides with the publication of the Birthday Honours List.

The coverage starts at 10.30am on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming on the BBC iPlayer.

Highlights will air on BBC Two from 6.30pm this evening.
