THE Queen will make a rare public appearance next week after announcing she’d miss the first Palace garden parties in three years.
The Royal Family has announced the garden parties will be returning for the first time since Covid to mark the Platinum Jubilee – although the Queen will not be attending.
But it’s been revealed The Queen will attend the state opening of Parliament and set out the government’s proposed legislation.
A spokesman from Buckingham Palace said although she plans to attend Tuesday’s event, a final decision will not be known until the day itself.
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.
No reason has yet been given as to why Her Majesty won’t greet guests at the outdoor events in May and June, although she has recently had issues with her mobility.
