Buckingham Palace has announced the King’s Birthday Parade will take place on Saturday 17 June next year.

Trooping the Color has been the monarch’s official birthday for over 260 years and in 2023 Charles will make his first appearance as king at the event.

The traditional display of pageantry and pageantry comes weeks after His Majesty’s coronation, which is scheduled to take place on May 6th.

King Charles and Prince William will ride on horseback during the exhibition, while other members of the royal family, including the Queen and Princess of Wales, will watch from carriages and the palace balcony.

It was also announced that three family members had been appointed Colonels within the Foot Guards, including Camilla as Colonel in the Grenadier Guards.

This role was previously held by the Duke of York and has been vacant since he was stripped of his royal titles.

Meanwhile, Kate will become Colonel of the Irish Guards, a role previously held by William, who will inherit the title of Colonel of the Welsh Guards from his father.

There will be no change to the existing colonelcies of the other regiments within the Household Division, the palace said.

Over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians take part in the demonstration of military precision, horsemanship and fanfares.

The parade descends the Mall from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade and ends with a flyby of the Royal Air Force.
