Queen Elizabeth II shares hope for "brighter days ahead"
Queen Elizabeth II began her post with a gorgeous photo taken on the palace grounds, as well as an optimistic message! "Sunrise over the lake in the Buckingham Palace Garden," the caption read. "Today marks the first official day of spring, as we all look towards brighter days ahead."
The royal mentioned that the garden "sees much change over the course of a year," and that it "is home to a remarkable array of flora and fauna." She also included images of two different daffodil varieties— identified in her caption as "tazetta" and "pheasant's eye"— as well as a path shown winding towards the Rose Garden!
The queen's birthday parade won't proceed as usual
Queen Elizabeth II then went on to explain that the springtime pictures of the palace garden are featured in an upcoming photo collection! She credited photographer John Campbell, and shared that the Royal Collection Trust is set to release Buckingham Palace: A Royal Garden in April.
As Hello! mentions, the palace also made a statement on Friday regarding plans for the queen's birthday celebration, Trooping the Colour. While like last year, the parade "will not go ahead this year in its traditional form in central London," the statement mentioned considering "an alternative Parade, in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle."
The queen isn't the only royal to take to social media to welcome the changing of the seasons! Earlier this week, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla shared a sweet photo of the two of them together to mark the occasion, wishing people "a happy and healthy first day of Spring."
