On a point of order - there is no such thing as ‘The Trooping of the Colour’.
Its correct title is ‘Trooping The Colour’. No preceding ‘The’, and no ‘of’.

The Trooping of the Colour is done in early June to maximize the numbers of tourists to be fleeced. (It will likely have to be cancelled, too.)

Since this is a musical site, I would like to bring to the multitude's attention that the song for the day ought to be that Cavalier standard, "Here's a Health unto His Majesty," which is the origin of the quick marches of the Royal and Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and a rollicking song--except for all the 'la-las'-- with fun lyrics.

No one can cancel a birthday, however hard they try. Trooping the colours, well, we can give the poor horses a rest for this year.

In Canada, the Queen's Birthday is 24 May, marked with gun salutes, the planting of tender annuals, and double-dozens of beer drunk on cottage docks throughout the land. Let us all hope that, by then, gunners, gardeners and beer-drinkers alike will be able to do what they do without fear of infecting anyone with something nasty.

I am an Australian republican (note the small "r"). For the information of those in other lands, we have the Queen as our head of state. We hope to change this one day, and I expect the best opportunity will come after Her Majesty dies.

However, I must say that the bits of her speech I saw on news clips were most impressive, and I cannot imagine the likes of Boris Johnson coming close to her ability to actually show that she actually cares about what is going on. She gave the impression that the speech was her duty, and she is going to do her duty.

Try to imagine, if you will, the American head of state even coming close.

Punk F R.......I t would be a wonderful opportunity for change except, we are a nation disarmed, ( only criminals, police and military have armaments) We are also tied by this latest legislation to keep us in our homes, no public or private gatherings etc. Controlled access to essential supplies. There are too many forelock tuggers to openly revolt, too many disinterested ordinary citizens. We are under the yoke of the rich and (they think) the elite, until they become powerless, nothing will change. We even have the thought police checking up on us peasants instead of removing the " rubbish" off the streets and from society. The legal profession and judges, part of the same powerful elite, maintain the status quo.

I've no idea whether she wrote that or not, and nor do you, Steve. In either case that's not relevant to whether John Crace was accurate in applying the term "class act" to her. I think it's spot on, with its deliberate ambiguity.

Class act? Moral leadership? Do me a favour. Here we have one of the richest people in the world taking tens of millions per annum for decades from the poor bloody taxpayer in order to keep her extended family of disreputable hangers-on in clover. And let's face it. She didn't write that speech, and she was well-trained.

I liked what John Crace wrote about it in The Guardian:

"But one thing was notable by its absence. Although it’s her job to be apolitical, there was no mention of the government’s efforts or requests to follow official advice. Her Maj still hasn’t forgotten how she was used, and made a fool of, by Boris Johnson over the prorogation and pointless Queen’s speech. In Boris, she doesn’t trust. But then who does?

The subtext was unmistakeable. If the country was to survive, it would do so through the collective resolve of its people, not through a government that had been slow to react and was still making promises it did not know it would be able to keep. And with that she faded out after little less than four minutes.

Throughout, her face remained more or less expressionless – inscrutability to hide the pain – but she had done what was required. Simply by being there, she had shown she cared. She had provided the clear moral leadership that many politicians have failed to provide. For some people nothing she could have said would have been enough, while others would have taken comfort. Most people probably wouldn’t have cared much either way. But it was a necessary rite of passage. And a tough gig when underneath you’re just as scared – if not more so, given her age – as everyone else. There’s no disguising it: the Queen’s a class act."

Her Maj looks at the camera with the steadiest gaze in broadcast history, and news readers the world over should stand in awe of her measured delivery and crystalline diction.

As Giok says, she's doing her duty, as usual. Setting a good example of stoic calm and giving good advice. No, she's not "relatable" and I could never imagine having a beer with her in the back yard, but then she's not a politician, is she?

She inherited a job which she didn't want, many years ago. She has done it to the best of her ability, and always does what she's told.
Do try to remember that she has no power, and is a constitutional monarch, merely a figurehead.
Remember that had it not been for her, we may have had a President Thatcher, or Blair, and that even now we may have had a President Boris.
At present in hospital, not suffering from Scrofula.

unfaltering
unhesitating

I have never had any real interest in the Royal Family - neither enough to bother to watch this speech - though I did read the text later - nor to be one of those that demands the Royal Family be disbanded.

For me, they are truly irrelevant: neither good, nor bad.

Having said that, I agree The Sandman at 03:05 AM: if it gives consolation to some, i cannot see the harm in it.

It's strange, I used to idolise the Royal Family, and watched all the weddings/funerals etc on TV with enthusiasm. But for some reason I've lost all interest in them and have come to the conclusion that they're an anachronism. I think after Her Maj has gone, the whole thing should be dismantled.
I did watch her speech, but couldn't see the point in it. I got the impression that she was only doing it because her advisers had told her the people expected it.
It's a bit rich (pun intended) for someone ridiculously wealthy who has led a life of endless privilege and luxury to be sitting there 'encouraging' the rest of us. Nah.
