Looks a bit iffy but fingers crossed.

Described as "a ceremony". Intrigued to see what happens.

Thanks for the link! I looked at The Royal Family account on YouTube but didn't think to look at the BBC.

Reduced to its simplest form, it's still uber regal and magnificent...
HM seems in good spirit and looks well.

He'd be breaking the lockdown travel restrictions if he did.

What restriction? He’s back in London supposedly and as long as he was two metres away from his mother in an outside place he could have attended.

There’s no restriction on how far someone can travel to see relatives now.

I thought he was still in Scotland. Also according to Gov.uk, which I checked before posting, travel should be restricted to necessary or essential travels. Neither category could be said to include Prince Charles taking part of today's ceremony.

Wouldn't travel to work (it is the celebration of the OFFICIAL birthday of the queen not a personal family visit) not be considered essential? Especially since they traveled back to London among other reasons to be able to receive the French president in a few days.

I guess we have different interpretations of what's an essential trip and what's not. The Queen was in attendance for Trooping so Charles did not have to be there. Someone has to great the French president and since the Queen is in quarantine it's apparently been decided that that highest ranking someone is the Prince of Wales.

It’s unconfirmed that he and Camilla were picked up at Aberdeen airport on Thursday to return to England.

I don’t believe the essential or necessary restriction is still in place as you can, from the 28th May, meet up to 6 people not from your household bubble in an outside space, there is no limit on how far you can travel to that outside space. The Queen can even meet people outside should she wish, she just needs to be extra careful.

Whilst I don’t think Charles should have attended, he could have as far as I understand.

I agree it wasn't essential; as technically, the celebration itself wasn't essential either. There was no need for the queen to be there either - it wouldn't have been a problem to skip a year. Neither is the trip of the French president essential. It could have been done by videoconferencing as well...

However, it seems the royal family is slowly starting up their non-essential in-person engagements and in that regard, I wouldn't think it would have been a problem for Charles to attend.

Note: as we are in 'soft total lockdown' (not sure what is soft about it) I am currently only allowed to leave my house for truly essential activities (which is grocery shopping on one specified day a week and that's all! (unless I would have a medical emergency)) - so, very little is 'essential' from that perspective for the large majority of the people (although I understand that lots of people are still needed to keep basic services running) - in that perspective nothing the royals do (except signing laws if applicable) is 'essential'.

I liked it. It is essentially the same ceremony but much quicker. If it was me, this is worth to be repeated. I liked it better at mediaeval Windsor with glorious green grass than at that big wide open sandy Horse Guards' Parade. But that is my personal opinion.

I think it was on purpose. Not one member of the royal family did attend.

Yes Windsor is a spectacular location for any sort of parade! Maybe they could repeat this every year on her actual birthday & have the traditional trooping in London as well.
