|From Left to Right: Prince |
We had a few things planned while we were there (like crossing "see Les Miserables" off my bucket list), but found out that we would be there for the Trooping the Colors celebration. I'm not from England and will not pretend to have extensive knowledge on the subject but this is the official celebration of the British sovereign. The queen processes down the mall and does an inspection of the troops.
It begins at 10, but when we got there at 8:30 the whole mall was pretty packed. Somehow we ended up with really great spots. Even though we all got split up, all of the girls managed to find each other at the end and compare royalty photos.
Unplanned excursions like this are the best kind.
