    If London kicks off this week, maybe they'll be back on the streets again.

    Maybe that's the real reason her and Diana's baldy kid went out yesterday.

    Filling the vacuum created by May.

    This year it's the 1st. Battalion Irish Guards.

    Otherwise known as The Queen's Birthday Parade, it is a chance for the Queen, 91, to inspect soldiers from her personal troops, the Household Division.

    The colourful display of pageantry features 1400 officers and men on parade, 200 horses and 400 musicians from 10 bands. The Queen always attends and takes the salute.

    What is Trooping the Colour, when is it and how can I watch the Queen's birthday parade?

    Seeing as this is a ticket only event and the tourists don't get to see it

    - then this cant really be called a public spectacle

    Is it not something of an anachronism in the 21st century

    - on something that cost a small fortune to hold

    - to please an old woman on a Horse & Carriage?
    Why on earth would you even think about this never mind start a thread on it!

    It's impossible not to be somewhat fascinated. It's one of the world's most bizarre stories. This entity called The Royal Family who are vastly wealthy yet live such pointless vacuous lives. They have no jobs, they create nothing, they make nothing. They've never as much as had a job interview. They exist completely outside of the real world like a strange sociological experimental family created for no purpose other than simply to be observed. A high production version of Big Brother essentially. What do Will or Harry see when they look at their father sitting there reading the morning paper, a man who has accomplished absolutely zero in life. And what does he see when he looks at his sons putting on their ties as they head out to open an ASDA store somewhere? Or just put in a day of waving and posing? Nothing to be proud of, no achievement, no successes, no challenges, no nothing, just that same vacuous pointless existence reflected back. Bizarre, freakish, comical and therefore fascinating in a WTF sense.

    I absolutely agree and am at a loss to understand this obsession with all things English from royalty, football and the doings of English low life in soap operas. As for this business of having Irish Guards.... Who remembers the invasion of Iraq and a row of tanks with shamrocks and "Irish Guards" painted on them as the entered the city. That was a disgrace and an embarrassment to any thinking Irish person.

    When we Irish can produce something with such worldwide respect and awe then maybe i could understand your posts. but untill then please have some respect for the Irish in Britain who may to some degree approve of the Monarchy.
    Personally im not a monarchist but have respect for their position and so pleased that i and many of my countrymen enjoy a freedom from the tyranny of imposed religion in all aspects of the Irish state. England has meant freedom to many Irish and so we respect English traditions.

    Its the usual bunch of basement boys who are fixated on the British and like to act as if they are serious citizens of an advanced social democracy.

    They are fooling no one.
