The Queen’s great-grandchildren could delight fans during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations as Trooping the Colour 2022 might see many young royals make their balcony debuts.
- Trooping the Colour 2022 is set to be the first to be held in full since the Covid-19 pandemic as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee plans are unveiled.
- The parade could mark the first time many of Her Majesty’s adorable great-grandchildren make their debuts in public, making for even more magnificent occasion.
- In other royal news how much Princess Diana's wedding dress cost and where it is now is revealed.
Next year will see the Queen become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee as she marks 70 years on the throne. A four-day bank holiday weekend has been confirmed in the UK in tribute and there will be a series of events taking place, including a Platinum Party, live concert and Platinum Jubilee pageant. But perhaps one of the most exciting of all these is the much-anticipated Trooping the Colour parade.
The Queen always celebrates two birthdays for a significant reason, with this annual parade being held in honor of her official birthday in June. Unfortunately, Trooping the Colour has been cancelled this year in its usual form due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, Trooping the Colour 2022 is set to be spectacular and if the plans do go ahead as expected, it could be that the Queen’s great-grandchildren delight fans the most that day.
The Royal Family will gather on the balcony during Trooping the Colour 2022 and if previous years are anything to go by, we could be seeing some young royals make their public debut. Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children and Peter Phillips’ daughters have attended Trooping the Colour in previous years, making for some very adorable photos. Sadly for eager fans, at the last pre-pandemic parade in 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie was only a month old and did not make an appearance.
However, in June 2022 he will be 3 years old and with Harry and Meghan’s second child thought to be due this summer, their daughter could potentially be considered old enough to attend Trooping the Colour 2022 too.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice’s pregnancy announcement confirmed that her baby is due in autumn 2021, again raising the question of whether her little one could be at this important event. And though Zara Tindall hasn’t always attended, she could possibly attend Trooping the Colour 2022 with her children Mia, Lena and new son Lucas for this special occasion.
When is Trooping the Colour 2022?
Trooping the Colour 2022 is set to take place on Thursday June 2nd 2022, the first day of the four-day bank holiday weekend in the UK. According to the Royal Family’s official website, over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will come together in the traditional Parade to mark The Queen's official birthday, which is usually held on the second Saturday in June. Beginning at Buckingham Palace, the Parade will then move down The Mall to Horse Guard's Parade, where it will be joined by Members of the Royal Family on horseback and in carriages. The Parade will close with the traditional RAF fly-past, watched by Her Majesty.
Who will be at Trooping the Colour 2022?
The Royal Family’s official website has revealed that the RAF fly-past will be watched, as is traditional, from the Buckingham Palace balcony by the Queen and members of the Royal Family. However, the official announcement of the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee plans has not confirmed which members of the Royal Family these will be. It’s very likely that the Queen’s eldest son and heir Prince Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla will be there, as will other family members thought to be included in her so-called “Firm of Eight”.
This would mean Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Anne and the Earl and Countess of Wessex would attend Trooping the Colour 2022, most likely with their children. Given this is such a significant milestone for the Queen’s reign, it’s also likely that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would want to travel over from the US.
Whilst other Trooping the Colour regulars like Peter Phillips are expected to make an appearance. The Queen’s other grandchildren, Lady Louise Windsor, James, Viscount Severn, Zara Tindall, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice could also very well be there. At Trooping the Colour 2019, both York princesses attended, as did their father Prince Andrew.
Prince Andrew is thought to not be attending Queen’s birthday parade for Trooping the Colour this year, so it’s not certain whether he would appear at the celebrations in 2022. For such an important event, the Queen’s cousins such as Prince Michael of Kent could also possibly be included.
With so much still to be confirmed, royal fans will just have to wait and see if they might catch a glimpse of the Royal Family reunited and possibly see some of the newest royal arrivals make their debut at Trooping the Colour 2022.
