The Queen to face Change in Traditional Birthday Celebrations Next Year

The Queen is celebrating her 96th birthday next year and by way of a change, her official birthday parade, Trooping the Colour, will fall on a weekday. The event is traditionally scheduled for the second Saturday in June and has taken place on that date since the monarch ascended the throne.

But in 2022, Trooping the Colour will form part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration and kick off the long weekend on Thursday 2 June, instead of being scheduled for the following weekend.

Next year will be the first time the military parade will be staged in full since the pandemic struck, which means we can expect to see members of the family out in force to support the Queen on her special day.

The traditional RAF flypast will take place, while some royals will take part in the parade either on horseback or in carriages. The monarch used to ride in the parade on horseback, but in recent years has enjoyed the event from her horse-drawn carriage.
