In less than a month, the United Kingdom will celebrate the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II. Like other members of the Crown, Kate Middleton and Prince William are expected to play an important role.
The platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II is getting ready. For several weeks, Buckingham Palace has been in turmoil as the anniversary of Her Majesty’s 70th year on the throne approaches. The celebrations, planned in number, will be spread over several weeks throughout the United Kingdom. Exhausted, Elizabeth II should attend several events but continue, as she has done for several months, to delegate the majority of the celebrations to her relatives.
In particular to Kate Middleton and Prince William, who will play an important role. According to People, the Cambridges should indeed fly to Wales, where they lived a few years ago. Princess Anne should take the direction of Scotland and Northern Ireland will be visited by Prince Edwart and his wife, Sophie of Wessex.
“Over the weekend, members of the Royal Family will visit the nations of the United Kingdom to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Members of the royal family will attend engagements in each country, including public events marking the occasion,” the palace said in a statement. The main celebrations of Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee will begin on Thursday, June 2 with the traditional birthday parade, Trooping the Colour. As they had announced, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will indeed be back in England for the occasion. But the Sussexes, now ex-members of the Crown, will not attend this event from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Just like Prince Andrew, persona non grata of the British royal family.
Elizabeth II: who will be present at the Trooping the Colour parade
“After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that the traditional appearance on the balcony for the Trooping the Colour on Thursday 2 June will this year be limited to Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family who are making official public engagements on behalf of the Queen,” announced the Crown in a statement. Logically then, it is Kate Middleton and Prince William who will be highlighted by Her Majesty.
On the balcony of the palace with their three children, they should be next to the Queen but also Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Wessex and their children and the cousins of the Queen, the Duke of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and Princess Alexandra. With several health concerns, Elizabeth II hopes to be able to accompany her loved ones during several events for this symbolic date.
