In 2022, when Queen Elizabeth turns 70, she will be the first monarch to visit Scotland, where she will attend ‘Royal Week’ for the first time. This visit marks her 70th year on the throne, and will include military parades and ceremonies. The Queen will also be accompanied by Prince Charles, who has become more visible in recent months. She will also attend a military parade, which will pay tribute to the role she plays as head of the U.K. armed forces.
The Queen will attend a garden party, a ceremony to invest Scottish people, and perhaps hold an audience with the First Minister of Scotland. However, many public engagements that the queen had in the past have been canceled due to her declining health. The Queen’s absence from a number of engagements in recent months largely coincided with her health problems. However, this trip has a broader significance.
Her attendance at the ‘Key Ceremony’ was only revealed the day of the event. Earlier, the Queen had made a comment to a well-wisher outside the church on her Scottish estate. Earlier, in her diary, the Queen was reported to be “pro-union” but worried about the prospect of independence. Buckingham Palace denied that her comments were political, claiming the Queen was above politics and apolitical. However, despite this ambiguous comment, the Queen still appeared in high spirits during the ceremony.
