Several royal events have been planned for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, but Trooping the Colour is expected to be one of the most significant.
Every year, the Queen’s birthday is celebrated with a special parade called Trooping the Colour in London.
For the past two years, the event has been held at a much smaller scale at Windsor Castle during the coronavirus pandemic and its associated lockdown restrictions.
But with restrictions all but completely eased in England, the Platinum Jubilee edition of Trooping the Colour in June is expected to be back to its former glory.
Crowds of people always line the streets of London to catch a glimpse of the Royal Family as they wave from the Buckingham Palace balcony.
In light of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we might expect several senior royals to appear at the celebrations this year, such as the Queen’s children Prince Charles and Princess Anne, and her grandson Prince William.
Members of the Queen’s extended family have also appeared at previous Trooping the Colour events, including her cousins, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Will George, Charlotte and Louis be at Trooping the Colour 2022?
During previous birthday parades, some of the Royal Family’s youngest members have made cameo’s on the balcony, with Prince Louis making his debut in 2019.
The Cambridge children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, have been known to watch the RAF flypast with great interest and wave to the crowds in previous years.
So this year, although attendees for the event are unconfirmed presently, it is expected George, Charlotte and Louis will appear for Trooping the Colour 2022 based on past precedent.
Will Archie and Lilibet be at Trooping the Colour 2022?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle now live in the US, but they could also return to the UK later this year for the Platinum Jubilee.
As the Sussexes’ eldest child Archie and youngest child Lilibet have yet to make their Trooping the Colour debuts, they may also appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony this year.
Meghan and Harry welcomed Archie in May 2019, so he was perhaps too young to watch the spectacle a month later for the first time.
And due to the pandemic, Archie has missed out on the previous two Trooping the Colours like the rest of the Queen’s great-grandchildren.
So this year may finally be the year Archie and little Lilibet get to see the royal spectacle for themselves.
