i have just watched Trooping the Colour on tv and i have to say, it makes me proud to be British. for anyone who doesnt know, TtC is a military display to celebrate the Queen's official birthday. the 'colour' is a battalion's flag and was originally 'trooped' or displayed, so that members of that battalion would recognise it. the flag was also used as a meeting point.
watching it always makes me feel emotional and gives me goosebumps! it's so colourful and impressive, especially the 21 gun salute and the end, and when the crowd moves in front of Buckingham Palace to see the Queen.
supposedly some organisation like the UN or something like that want a referendum as to whether we should get rid of the monarchy. no way i say. be proud!
