The Guards regiments tweeted details about a scaled-back celebration of the Queen’s official birthday in June, which will take place at Windsor Castle for the second year running. The Scots Guards are set to parade in front of her Majesty and the event being broadcast live on BBC One. However, Buckingham Palace has not yet officially announced the details and the tweet was later deleted.
The message from the official account of the five infantry regiments read: “In a smaller ceremony at Windsor Castle this year, the Scots Guards will Troop (their) Colours in front of Her Majesty The Queen.
“The event will be broadcast live on BBC One.”
The Queen has marked her birthday differently over the past year due to the pandemic and also her husband of nearly 74 years dying.
She turned 95 last week, just 12 days after Philip died peacefully with her by his side.
She used her birthday to release a message thanking well-wishers for their tribute to Philip.
She also said she and her family were in a “period of great sadness” but were comforted by words of praise for the duke.
The Queen added: “We have been deeply touched and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life.”
Last year, the Trooping the Colour tradition was also cancelled in its traditional form due to the Covid pandemic.
The Queen watched a small ceremonial tribute by soldiers from the Welsh Guards in the grounds of Windsor, where she has stayed during lockdown.
Other members of the Royal Family did not travel to watch due to lockdown restrictions.
An earlier statement from Buckingham Palace hinted at the celebrations being similar to last year.
The statement said: “Options for an alternative Parade, in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle, are being considered.”

The annual spectacle usually involves thousands of well-wishers gathering to central London to watch the Royal Family as they travel to and from Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall.
They then gather on the Buckingham Palace balcony for a flypast.
The mini Trooping the Colour is expected to take place in the grounds of Windsor on June 12.
This will be two days after what would have been the Duke of Edinburgh’s 100th birthday.
Earlier this year, Buckingham Palace cancelled all summer garden parties at Buckingham Palace after a third lockdown was imposed.
However, the royals have started carrying out engagements as lockdown restrictions are starting to ease.
They also recently took a break from duties during a mourning period after Prince Philip died on April 9.
The Queen was pictured for the first time today carrying out an official public engagement since his death, as she held virtual audiences at Windsor Castle on a video link.
She was also no longer wearing a black mourning outfit and was instead dressed in a pale blue floral dress that featured large purple, white and yellow flowers.
She also matched her outfit with a three-string pearl necklace and a diamond brooch as accessories.
The Queen was pictured smiling while looking at her computer screen as she held two audiences with the ambassador from the Republic of Latvia, and the ambassador from the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, who were at Buckingham Palace.
