Trooping The Colour Special Celebration – 2022

Three years ago, I had the most amazing opportunity to be present in London for the Trooping of the Colour Parade – which normally is in honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s birthday.

I was happy to see the Queen as well as Prince Philip among all the royals imaginable. It was a good day to see such a historical figure.

It was as if she was a time capsule or an encyclopedia of sorts. All I could think about while seeing her smile and wave from her carriage to the crowd was-I wish I could have an hour or two with her. Just to hear first hand about her conversations with world leaders through the decades, and her truest feelings about how our world has evolved.

This year, as we know, Trooping The Colour celebration will have a different meaning. It will be the platinum jubilee – dedicated to The Reigning Queen’s seventy years on the throne.

Wish I was there…for this historic moment in her majesty’s and my lifetime. Decades of the only consistent in my life.

Thank you for your service thus far.

I wish you good health and selfishly a very long life even though I see how fragile you have become in the recent year…

  1. I think of everything she’s lived through. To be an adolescent at the brink of WWII, becoming queen at 25, living through all the turmoil of the decades. An amazing historical figure.
