In 2020, Trooping the Colour will look like no other event before it, as the country continues to grapple with the impact of coronavirus.The Queen looks to be the only member of the Royal Family who will enjoy a miniature version of the ceremony, done by the battalion stationed with her at Windsor Castle where she is isolating with her husband Prince Philip.The huge change means there won’t be a chance to see the royals in their best outfits to celebrate the pomp and pageantry - and no balcony photos as they watch an RAF flypast. Instead, we will have to look back at the photos of years gone by as we reminisce about the best outfits - from the Duchess of Cambridge’s double-breasted Alexander McQueen coat with a black hat in 2011, to Meghan Markle's navy Givenchy outfit in 2019 as she make a maternity break appearance. But what Kate and Meghan have worn to this annual event is by no means the only outfits worth talking about.From the Queen’s ‘green screen’ outfit to Princess Diana’s iconic baby blue smocked look she wore while pregnant with Prince Harry in 1984, see how many of these royal get-ups you recall…
In usual circumstances, the Royal Family would be getting together at the weekend for the annual Trooping the Colour parade.The parade marks the Queen’s official birthday and was due to be held on 13 June this year - but had to be cancelled in its usual form because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.Usually, the Queen and senior members of the Royal Family take part in a carriage procession that travels from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guard’s Parade and back again.They then congregate on the famous Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the RAF fly-past.But this year, there will be a smaller ceremony in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle, where the Queen and her husband Prince Philip have been in isolation for 11 weeks.There won’t be any young royals present to steal the show at the event, so no Prince George, Princess Charlotte or their cousins providing some amusing moments.Read more: Queen's mini Trooping the Colour revealed as official birthday marked in lockdownIn 2018, Savannah Phillips pretended to conduct the music, while promptly putting her hand over cousin George’s mouth to stop him from singing.The Duchess of Sussex made her debut at Trooping the Colour in 2018 and last year was her first post-pregnancy appearance.
