THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE TO CARRY OUT THE COLONEL’S REVIEW

London

Saturday 28th May 2022

The Duke of Cambridge, Colonel of the Irish Guards, will carry out the Colonel’s Review on Horse Guards Parade on Saturday 28th May.

The Colonel’s Review is the final evaluation of the parade before it goes before Her Majesty The Queen during the Trooping the Colour on the 2nd June as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. This year, the honour of trooping their colour falls to the Irish Guards and as colonel of the regiment the Duke will lead the final review. The first review was conducted by Major General Chris Ghika on Saturday 21st May.

During the parade more than 1,500 soldiers and 350 horses will carry out complex battlefield drill manoeuvres to a programme of music.

The last time the Duke of Cambridge carried out this inspection was in 2017. Last week, the Duke presented 1st Battalion Irish Guards with their new colours during a ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British sovereign for more than 260 years.
