Queen's Birthday - Trooping the Color


Although Queen Elizabeth's real 83 birthday was in April, the official celebration of her birthday in the United Kingdom is today. The trooping of the color, and other events including the annual Royal Family balcony scene, will occur in London. This is the closest the UK comes to having a "national holiday" every year.

Being the monarchist and loyal British subject that I am, I had to post this wonderful version of God Save The Queen! Jessye Norman, the great American Soprano, who went to my college The University of Michigan, sings this version with the Queen in attendance in 1986.
