|With my late Mum Jess|
The video is of The British Grenadiers at The Trooping of the Colour, I have been lucky enough to attended this wonderful event twice, it never fails to bring me to tears, the history, pomp and pageantry are stunning and something that Great Britain does best. Please pause the music on the right hand side to watch this video
My Grandfather would have been on guard here although in his day the sentry box was actually on the pavement outside the Palace but due to being harassed by the public and tourists (can you believe) it was moved inside the Palace gates. I so wish my parents were still alive, I miss them so much, if you are lucky enough to still have your parents ask them about your heritage, ask them to tell you family stories, for when they are gone those untold stories will be gone too.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and week ahead, take care, hugs, B xxxx
