Which Royal Family Members Are Attending Trooping the Colour?

Despite his recent cancer diagnosis, King Charles III will be attending his annual birthday tribute, and is expected to ride in a carriage with Queen Camilla.

In addition to King Charles and Queen Camilla, many members of His Majesty’s family are expected to attend, including Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their children. Charles’ siblings, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, are also expected in attendance.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle live in the U.S. and are reportedly not attending this year’s proceedings (they also skipped last year’s event). While Harry attended his father’s recent coronation, tensions between the two have heightened ever since Harry released his memoir, Spare last January, with the king reportedly unhappy with many of the revelations in the book.

More than one thousand British officers and soldiers are expected to march in the Trooping the Colour parade, along with hundreds of horses, notable guests and musicians. After making their way through London, King Charles will then join other members of the Royal Family to greet the crowd from the iconic balcony at Buckingham Palace.

One last note: Charles’ birthday is actually in November, but tradition dictates that the annual Trooping the Colour celebration takes place in summer so that it can be held when the weather in London is better. The King turns 76 this year.
