2nd July Colours presentation - more photos and video

Today we have some of the photos I took of Saturday's presentation, plus some news footage of the ceremony.

The Royal Company of Archers

The bright sunshine of the day meant that I was effectively taking these pictures "blind", so I can only apologise for the quality of them.

And here we have some new coverage of the day, which includes part of the speech given by the Queen.
