Trooping the Colour 2014 – Live on BBC One TV

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

Live from Horse Guards Parade in London, Huw Edwards and Suzi Perry presents coverage of the world’s most famous military parade, where the Colour of the Nijmegen Company, Grenadier Guards, is trooped to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s official birthday.

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.

Coverage begins at 10:30am on BBC One. BBC Two will broadcast a 90-minute highlights programme at 6.30pm
