Royal Attendance at Household Division's Beating Retreat (2000-Present)

Household Divison's Beating Retreat is held the Wednesday & Thursday before Trooping the Colours. A Beating Retreat is a spectacular concert of music and military precision drill, including horses, cannon and fireworks.

Each year, a Member of the Royal Family attends the performance and takes the Salute. (Occasionally, we see a royal attend on each night.)

(Note: Various Military Regiments hold Beating Retreats throughout the year. This list only covers the Household Division's annual one before Trooping the Colours.)
