Roya Nikkhah has tweeted out and included a screenshot of the Sunday Times paper that the Queen is planning to return to London for her 95th Birthday and Trooping of the Colour would likely to go ahead. The Queen and the Royal Family are keen to give full Honours to the British Army. There is also the possible plan that The Queen will meet Harry and Meghan in June at Trooping of the Colour.

I'll believe it when I see it about the part with Harry and Meghan at Trooping.

It's nice to be optimistic but the way this pandemic has gone, anything can happen between now and then.

I very much hope that, by June, everyone will be able to be reunited with their loved ones: I know plenty of people who haven't been able to see family and friends living abroad for over a year now. But, the way things are going, we just don't know ... and we don't even know if it'll be possible for Trooping the Colour to go ahead. Like the rest of us, the Queen can't make plans at the moment :-( .

So much bad planning gives me a migraine.
The UK seems to be doig a fine job of its vaccination programme. About 1.5m people have already had the first jab, and 13.5m are expected to get it by mid-February.

I think it is a bit premature to be thinking of TC. This pandemic has created so many set backs plus there are already 2 mutant strains out there.

Also think of the balcony scenel with the Queen. Staying 6 feet apart will only allow for 6-8 members of the royal family best.

The organisers do have to start considering options though, even if it ends up being a slightly bigger version of 2020 with the Queen at Windsor.

This also wasn't officially announced, someone leaked the story to Roya.

I didn't realise that. How peculiar.

If there's going to be a trooping in London I can't see large crowds being encourged in June. Most sources seem to suggest a return to normality by late summer/early autumn. Would love to be proved wrong & everything gets better much sooner.

I very much hope so, but it seems unlikely. Last summer, we all opened everything up, and people from all over Europe were travelling abroad on holiday, and, at the time, it seemed like the right thing to go - it looked as if the worst was over, and places were desperate to get their economies going again. But, with the benefit of hindsight, maybe it would have been better to hang fire. I think all governments are going to be a lot more cautious this time round.

I would not suggest a Trooping of the Colour till it is safe to do so, but I see the rationale for only the relevant members of the BRF being present on the balcony.

Queen Elizabeth reportedly reached out to Joe Biden before he was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. On Wednesday, The Sunday Times’ royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah tweeted, “The Queen sent a private message to President Biden @JoeBiden earlier today, ahead of his inauguration, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.”

On the note of US politics, according to Roya Nikkhah and Caroline Wheeler from The Sunday Times, The Queen will host receptions at Buckingham Palace this summer ahead of the G7 summit in Cornwall. US President and other World Leaders will be invited.

Nice to hear of the G7 plans, but they can't exactly say this will go ahead for sure, can they?

If and when the POW is crowned King and he snubbed other head of States maybe he should by then have taken a page out of his mothers handbook about the proper way to abide by protocol. Maybe they will have a lovely conversation about Barisma and China. The whole Biden clan will be represented as was the Trump family . Would love to be a fly on the wall, to listen to this conversation. I still remember when the Queen hosted the Communist Ruler of Romania. She did not like him or what he stood for neither did I, but she performed her job flawlessly as always. Now that is CLASS.

I am afraid it is, IMO, far from the truth that Charles snubbed Trump in 2018. When Trump visited in 2018, he only had a brief meeting with HM The Queen at Windsor. No other royals were present, and frankly for a meeting that lasted less than an hour, none were required or are usually present.

Donald Trump and his family subsequently visited in 2019 on a state visit. As befitting a state visit, events over the course of a few days were organised, and Trump and family were entertained by all the senior members of the BRF. The only exception was Meghan, who had recently given birth and was on maternity leave. Charles and Camilla were present at all the key events, and even hosted Trump and Melania at Clarence House. No snubs there at all.

I think this is all a bit previous. Much as I would love to think that Buckingham Palace receptions will have resumed by June, it doesn't seem very likely. I'm not even sure that the summit will happen. It only takes one person in one of the entourages to have the virus - and, as we've seen with the Australian Open, testing negative 72 hours before you fly doesn't necessarily mean that you won't test positive after arrival - and it could get awkward. Even if everyone actually directly in attendance has been vaccinated, there'll be a lot of staff and press people involved too.


But it's a nice idea!

Seems to me this is nothing more than sitting what is pretty obvious - the Queen always meets the G7 leaders when they meet in the UK. Therefore if the situation allows the G7 to go ahead then it would likely be safe enough for HM to meet the leaders as that truly could take place outside/in an large space with just HM, staff from her bubble and G7 leaders while staff/security wait outside.

This seems like nothing more than "if the G7 can go ahead it will follow the usual norms".

No one has a clue how things will be come the summer of 2021. However, it is far easier to plan ahead to assure things are in place and ready should the G7 summit go on as planned. It's far easier to plan ahead than to rush to assemble everything together at the last minute. These plans are being prepared.
