Part 6 - Quick March Past and the Royal Cavalry Gala
Trooping the Colour 2011 - 360 years - Queen's Birthday Parade - BBC With the Queen once more seated at the Saluting Base, the command "Troop!" is given by the Field Officer, and the parade stands at attention and changes arms.
Under the command of the Senior Drum Major, the Massed Bands march and countermarch at Horse Guards Parade in slow and quick time. The slow march music is traditionally the Waltz from Les Huguenots. During the quick march, a lone drummer from the Corps of Drums breaks away from the Massed Bands, marching to two paces to the right of No. 1 Guard to take his post. The Trooping of the Colour phase is initiated by the lone drummer's eight-bar "Drummer's Call", signalling the Captain of No. 1 Guard to cede his command to the Subaltern of No.1 Guard. It slopes arms, while the rest is told to change arms and stands at ease on the direction of the Field Officer.
