Heads up! For those of you now in London, THE WINDSOR CASTLE ROYAL TATTOO starts today and runs until 15 May. TRY TO GET TICKETS; you will not regret the effort.
THE WINDSOR CASTLE ROYAL TATTOO takes place on the priate grounds of Windsor Castle in the presence of her Majesty the Queen.
The TATTOO first took place in 2008 and has grown to be one of the finest events in the Royal Calendar. The event takes place to raise funds to benefit the Royal British Legion to help support returning troops.
Highlights are set to be the HOUSEHOLD CAVALRY and THE MUSICAL DRIVE OF THE KING’S TROOP ROYAL HORSE ARTILLERY.
The Queen will be presented a new horse from the CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE. Several years ago, I was at Badminton House when the Mounties gave their first horse to the Queen–Bermese. The gelding came to Badminton from Canada where it was gradually introduced into English life. I well remember that magnificent horse as it was paraded around the stables of this great country house in Gloucestershire. The Queen two weeks later to welcome her new horse which she rode in 17 TROOPING OF THE COLORS. He was a very dear horse to the Queen. When he died, he was buried in Windsor Great Park where he had enjoyed his horse retirement. A wonderful story!
