Aynsley Bone China, Loving Cup, The Queen, 60th Birthday, Trooping the Colour, Horse Guards Parade, 2 Handled Mug, National Anthem Britain
Rather special Aynsley bone china loving cup commemorating the 60th Birthday of The Queen. She is riding her favourite horse, Burmese, for the Trooping the Colour Horse Guards Parade. Burmese retired after this event and this is the last Trooping the Colour that Her Majesty rode on horseback.
Horse Guards Parade, 1970, Queen Elizabeth riding her horse Burmese during the Trooping of the Colour ceremony. A Grenadier Guard lies prostrate at attention as all good Guardsmen should when they faint!
