Queen Elizabeth II (94) will be 95 years old this year. According to the Sunday Times, Queen Elizabeth II would like to return to London for the occasion. Elizabeth and Prince Philip have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus, however, the Queen is still in isolation at Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip (99).
Queen Elizabeth II: This is how she wishes to spend her birthday
The Queen turns 95 on April 21, but traditionally the celebrations for her birthday do not take place until June. Central to the celebrations is the Trooping the Colour ceremony through London and the air show, while Elizabeth and her family watch from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
The pandemic was already in full swing last year, which is why a very stripped-down version of the military parade was held at Windsor Castle with the Queen isolated. But with the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, there could be another bigger celebration this year.
As reported by the Sunday Times, a palace employee is said to have shared that the Queen's Birthday Parade is currently scheduled to take place in London as usual, with the assumption that it may need to be adjusted or scaled back depending on the guidelines that should be in place at that time.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan: Return to London?
Since the pandemic began, the Queen's birthday could become the first major celebration in Britain again. And there should also be a reunion with Prince Harry (36) and Duchess Meghan (39). As the newspaper further reports, palace employees have stated that Harry and Meghan should take part in the official event, as this is a "family occasion."
Harry and Meghan last appeared publicly in the UK in March 2020. Queen Elizabeth II's birthday would then be her first event with the royals since the Commonwealth Day service. It would also make sense for Prince Harry to be in the UK for the Trooping the Colour ceremony as it will reportedly take place two days before Prince Philip's 100th birthday on June 10th.
Here's hoping the Queen can celebrate her birthday more normally this year and that she can be reunited with all members of the royal family!
