Although not exactly a year older, as most readers of this blog will already know I'm sure, today is the day that the United Kingdom and a number of other Commonwealth countries officially celebrate the birthday of HM Queen Elizabeth II. There will be the magnificent trooping of the colour; a custom started to make the monarch familiar with the flags of his/her regiments, salutes by the royal artillery and the always expected waving from the balcony. It is a grand ceremony carried on in a regal style that the British are famous for. The Mad Monarchist wishes Her Majesty the Queen a very happy birthday and joins all of her loyal subjects around the world in a heartfelt cheer of 'God Save the Queen'!
