BUCKINGHAM Palace have announced that the garden parties will be returning to mark the Platinum Jubilee, although the Queen will not be attending.
No reason has yet been given as to why Her Majesty won’t greet guests at events in May and June, although she has recently had issues with her mobility.
Four parties will take place in the coming weeks. The format of the events means that the Queen would have had to stand for more than an hour and move down the lines greeting visitors.
A statement released this morning reads: “Her Majesty The Queen will be represented by other members of the Royal Family at this year’s Garden Parties, with details on attendance to be confirmed in due course.
“The Queen has given permission for the Not Forgotten Association Annual Garden Party to be hosted by the Princess Royal, as the charity’s patron, in the Buckingham Palace Garden on Thursday, May 12.”
