I found out a couple of days ago that we have tickets for the youth section of trooping the colour (13th June). I'm very excited as I know the girls will be when I tell them. We took a chance and booked everything in September so parent could pay in instalments and so pleased we won't have to fight to see with the general crowds.:D

We are staying at Pax lodge as we are coming down from the Wirral on Friday night.
Is anyone else going? perhaps we can meet each others units?

Not going this year, but we were there last year. My main advice would be to get there early so you can get as close to Horseguards Parade as you can. After everything had paraded out, we were allowed to walk down the Mall to Buckingham Palace, and managed to get right to the gate for the fly past. There are toilets in St James Park which you can go to afterwards.

We got our girls a pack of loom bands each to keep them occupied because there is a lot of sitting around.
