The King’s actual birthday is on 14 November, but the King’s Birthday is celebrated in the UK on the second Saturday of June so the Trooping of the Colour in London can take place in the warmer weather of summer. The tradition of moving the birthday of the monarch this way began in 1748, but his actual birthday does get a token recognition too.
In Gibraltar, a full military parade takes place on the King’s Birthday holiday in Grand Casemates Square. It is smaller than the one in London but still very well done and patriotic. Most people like to get out and watch the parade and spend some time around town.
