Off with her head!!

Nigel and I, with other members of The Barking Rotary Club, will be at The Tower of London this evening for the Ceremony of the Keys. This ceremony has taken place for over 600 years and you can read about it on http://www.trooping-the-colour.co.uk/keys/. Hopefully, I shall not find myself in the dungeons or at Traitors Gate but will arrive home safely with my head intact!!lol

took these photos during the summer - I live about 8 miles from The Tower of London but with London traffic it can take me, by car, anything from 20 mins to hour to get there.

I have seen trooping the colours several times on the BBC. I do watch the BBc a lot. Love their programs

I watched the video. I like when they answer, "Queen Elizabeth's Keys."

Have a wonderful evening.
