Queen's Trooping the Colour birthday parade is cancelled again

Queen’s Trooping the Colour birthday parade and Order of the Garter ceremony in June are cancelled for the second year in a row due to Covid pandemic

The Queen’s official birthday parade Trooping the Colour was today cancelled for the second year in a row in London – but could still take place at Windsor Castle.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said today: ‘Following consultation with Government and other relevant parties it has been agreed that The Queen’s Official Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead this year in its traditional form in central London. 

‘Options for an alternative Parade, in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle, are being considered. The annual Garter service, usually held in June, will not take place this year.’
