Last year's Trooping of the Colour was largely scaled-back amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Indeedleft the royal family and its legions of followers in mourning as the formidable Duke's life and legacy was spotlighted across the world.

Duke of Sussex hinted he liked name Lili 2 years ago
The Duke of Sussex dropped a huge hinted he liked the name Lili two years ago when he asked a mother-of-three how her six-year-old daughter Lily's name was spelt.Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, welcomed daughter Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor - who is named after Queen Elizabeth, and Harry's late mother, Princess Diana - into the world on Friday (04.06.21), but the 36-year-old royal dropped a huge hint he was a fan of the moniker during a royal engagement in January 2019.
The royal couple said "I do" on November 20, 1947, in a glorious ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
Their withstanding relationship was based on their mutual love and respect, but also a shared sense of humour - after all Prince Philip is.
As the man who stood behind and supported his Queen, Philip created a royal benchmark for amazing relationship goals.
In fact the Duke of Edinburgh "traipsed around" and joked that he was the "fella who belongs to Mrs Queen", rather than being "professionally qualified in something."
The mother-of-four was always very comfortable around her husband, with her former private secretary, Lord Charteris once admitting, "It is not unknown for the Queen to tell the Duke to shut up."
Archewell to continue while Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are on parental leave
Archewell will continue while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on parental leave after welcoming their daughter on Friday (04.06.21).The couple welcomed their second child into the world on Friday (04.06.21), a daughter named Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and while the couple spend some quality time with the newborn - a brother to their two-year-old son Archie - the team at their non-profit organisation will carry on "uplifting and uniting communities" in their absence.
Though there was a time when you wouldn't get a peep out of her!
"You were so shy. I couldn't get a word out of you," Philip recalled of his meeting with Elizabeth in 1939.
After 50 years of marriage, Philip famously joked: "You can take it from me, the Queen has the quality of tolerance in abundance!" The following decade he laughed that, "the secret of a happy marriage is to have different interests."
Joking aside, it is clear that it was the Prince's utter devotion to his wife that was a backbone to their incredible partnership.
"My job first, second and last is never to let the Queen down," he sweetly said previously.
