That's the first thing that came to mind for me too. Has the Queen ever not attended one of her garden parties before?

Also very strange that The Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and The Princess Royal get a full verse of the National Anthem.

Surely they are only entitled to the first six bars?

I had no idea about this but yes, apparently it's on HM and DOE that are entitled to the full thing. How interesting.

I wonder if at a garden party like this where they represent The Queen are the treated as she would be!

Guess they are still figuring out how to do these ‘new’ types of event without The Queen!

This was the first event that went up on the FE for HM this year so I wonder if something is wrong ... it was still on the FE when I checked over the weekend.

Well, she’s supposed to go to the wedding on Saturday, so we’ll see. She was fine on Sunday.

The Queen probably needed to rest. Her legs were swollen when she attended the pageant show with Harry and Prince Philip. Probably due to poor circulation and standing too long.

I know. That is why it is strange - particularly as neither the RWHS nor the wedding are official engagements and this one was. It would be normal for some sort of announcement to also have been made to explain her absence e.g. she has developed a cold or something.

Who knows
I just checked and she had her regular audience with the PM yesterday, so I don’t think she’s ill.

You are correct. Surely this is exactly the type of engagement, with its requirement for her to be walking and standing for a long period of time, (and it is much harder walking and standing on soft grass) we would expect her to hand to the heir, etc. Sitting and talking with the PM is not a physically arduous task.

Here's another video from the Garden Party I've just noticed the Duke of Yorka and Earl and Countess of Wessex were present.

We did! It's always a busy time of year for the BRF, they're seen out and about quite often, but with the wedding and the surprised appearence of little kiddos at their mom's garden it's certainly special this year.


Not to mention Trooping the colour is also on the horizon and that's one of my favourite royal events!
