The Queen’s actual birthday is on 21 April, but the Queen’s Birthday is celebrated in the UK on the second Saturday of June so the Trouping 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 her actual birthday does get a token recognition too.

In Gibraltar, a full military parade takes place on Queen’s Birthday 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.
