﹛﹛The Queen has returned to Windsor Castle for her official birthday celebrations, including a scaled-back Trooping the Colour ceremony.

﹛﹛After an evening spent cracking jokes with world leaders in Cornwall for the G7 summit, the monarch watched soldiers and musicians take part in a socially distanced march in the parade area of the castle.

﹛﹛It marked the start of the official celebrations for the Queen, who actually turned 95 earlier this year.

﹛﹛Members of the Massed Band of the Household Division took part in what*s been dubbed a mini Trooping the Colour, after the full version couldn*t be held for a second year in a row due to Covid.

﹛﹛Guardsmen showed off their precision marching skills while keeping two metres away from each other in glorious sunshine in Berkshire.

﹛﹛The soldiers chosen to take part have all been supporting communities and the NHS during the pandemic or served overseas on military operations.

﹛﹛Trooping the Colour, a centuries old annual tradition, is normally staged in central London and attracts large crowds but it had to be called off again this year.

﹛﹛Organisers of the official celebrations still wanted to stage a &memorable and uplifting day* for the monarch.

﹛﹛After a year which has seen the Queen mourn the loss of her husband the Duke of Edinburgh and face accusations about her family from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the ceremony was intended to be a positive event.

﹛﹛Lieutenant Colonel Guy Stone, Brigade Major Household Division, who was also in overall charge of the military arrangements for Philip*s funeral, said: &It is the highlight of the year and a poignant way for the Household Division to thank Her Majesty for all that she does for the nation, particularly through this challenging time.*

﹛﹛A small handful of seated guests were allowed in to watch the ceremony 每 a change from last year when only the military were present.
