If you look back at previous Troopings, he does the same thing. Perhaps because he’s the heir he rides back to the palace nearer to The Queen’s carriage.

No big surprise here.

"In line with Government advice, it has been agreed that The Queen’s Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead in its traditional form. A number of other options are being considered, in line with relevant guidance."

It was to be expected. I am sure all of the June events will be cancelled as well.

There was one year it was cancelled because of a train strike. In the fifties I think. I'll look it up.

And in 1948 because of the weather apparently. I didn't know that.

Anyone have any idea what "other options" in the announcement might mean?

They might postpone it a few months. It’s not the Queen’s real birthday anyway, just a random date they picked because the weather is usually nice.

I suspect it will be more a matter of the Queen driving to Horseguards, only one section of the regiment trooping and the Queen driving back to BP. No carriages, no balcony, and only the Queen and maybe Charles and Camilla (assuming the isolation on older Brits has been lifted).

I wouldn't be surprised to find that in the end Trooping is cancelled along with the Garter and Ascot.

The evidence seems to be that lockdown has to last at least for two months - making the lockdown in the UK still being in effect well into May if not into June.

When we see what happens in China as they lift their lockdown in Wuhan. If this leads to a second spike it is possible that the rest of us have to accept the very real possibility of 6 months (as the Aussie PM has suggested - but we are also approaching our flu season as well and that usually fills our hospitals, especially ICU from June to August).

It has been reported that a “mini” Queen’s Birthday Parade will be held in the forecourt of Windsor Castle on the occasion of Her Majesty’s Official Birthday.

Will we be having a mini carriage procession, mini balcony appearance - maybe just Charles in his boxers and a mini fly pass with the Red Arrows.

Because if we are not I can do it in Lego and place it on Youtube.

Well the upper quadrangle is huge. You could probably have a full size trooping there. Not sure if that would do the lawn any good mind you.

There was a big march up to the castle & then around the quadrangle during the last jubilee. Maybe that might be a model to follow. Except for the navy of course - they can't march!
