The queen is the farsighted type! While still confined to Windsor Castle, Elizabeth II is reportedly actively preparing for her return to London, which should take place this summer. As reported by Hello magazine, the monarch and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh are planning to return to the UK capital around June to attend the festivities which should be organized to celebrate the 95th anniversary of His Majesty. A parade is in fact scheduled for June 12 to mark the occasion and honor Elizabeth II. The latter should also have another event to celebrate, on June 10 her husband Philip Mountbatten will celebrate his 100 years. “The Queen wants the Duke to be the center of attention in June and the big celebration for herself to be for her platinum jubilee in 2022,” a member of her entourage said.
The summer promises to be very festive for the royal family which will certainly be reunited in full if the health situation allows it. The parents of Prince Charles, who were recently vaccinated against Covid-19, are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to once again honor their royal traditions and reunite with their loved ones. They who have seen, for a year, all the projects and events they want to be canceled one after the other due to the pandemic. Not long ago, the queen had to draw an end to all the garden parties that were to be held this summer. Elizabeth II also had to completely revise her way of working and learn to tame digital tools in order to stay in touch with Buckingham.
The vaccine, the hope of the queen and her husband
Anxious to want to set an example, Elisabeth II and her husband Prince Philip did not hesitate for a second to be vaccinated at the start of the vaccination campaign in the United Kingdom. The two monarchs see in this vaccine, the hope of resuming their activities but also of being able to again rub shoulders with their loved ones as their grandchildren and their great-grandchildren: Kate, William and their three children but also Harry, Meghan and their son Archie who hasn’t returned to England for almost a year. The 94-year-old sovereign was therefore impatiently waiting to receive her first injection and now hopes that the confinement currently in place in the United Kingdom will be quickly lifted so that she can return to work.
