The Queen marked her official birthday on Saturday with the traditional pomp-fest that is Trooping the Colour.
There was the usual mix of royals, horses and troops, all of which raised a few questions…
How do they do it?
How do they do it? Ride a horse and play instruments? #TroopingTheColour

Well that would be one solution…
Why don’t they get the horses to play the instruments? #TroopingTheColour

Simon, that is a valid point…
Why can’t the queen just go out on lash lash on her birthday like the rest of us ? #TroopingTheColour

It’s a tough career…
Why are soldiers judged on a mixture of being trained killers and slightly effeminate walking? #TroopingTheColour

A jaunty angle is definitely the hardest kind of angle…
#TroopingTheColour How does Kates hat stay on at that jaunty angle?

On a scale on 1-horse, we’d say very.

Always remember the bears…
How many dead bears went into the making of this I wonder? #TroopingTheColour

Does anyone actually ask her?
What if the Queen just wants to go bowling and to Pizza Hut on her birthday? #TroopingTheColour

She does get around…
Why is Clare Balding on everything #TroopingTheColour

Of course there’s always the cynics…
How brain-washed do you have to be before you think this is a good thing? Can’t believe some people like this #TroopingTheColour
