Trooping the Colour

First broadcast: 7 June 1951

His Majesty King George VI is unable to attend Trooping the Colour due to ill health, so his place is taken by his daughter, Princess Elizabeth. The princess, riding side-saddle, wears a modified version of the regiment's uniform.

The young Prince Charles rides alongside his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth (later known as the Queen Mother), and his aunt, Princess Margaret, in a horse-drawn carriage. The colour trooped is that of the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards.
