Queen at 90: Trooping the Colour for second day of celebrations

A weekend of celebrations marking the Queen's 90th will continue today when as many as 1,500 soldiers and officers go on parade at a Trooping the Colour event in honour of the milestone birthday.

The parade, which will take place in Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall, will be followed by an RAF fly-past and is the second of a string of official events to mark her majesty's birthday.

The celebrations began on Friday with the Royal Family attending a national service of thanksgiving for the monarch's life at St Paul's Cathedral.
