King Charles III does not seem to stop as he has decided to go on with his birthday parade despite Buckingham Palace's announcement about the cancellation of all activities.

The British Army has confirmed that Trooping the Colour, which is traditionally held every June to celebrate the sovereign’s birthday, would go ahead on Saturday (June 15).

There are also reports that The King may travel by carriage instead of on horseback for the military spectacular.

After the announcement of the General Election last week, there was speculation as to whether the King’s parade would still go ahead.

The royal family issued a statement saying that engagements will be postponed that "may appear to divert attention or distract from the election campaign."

However, on Tuesday evening it was confirmed that the Number 9 Company, Irish Guards, had been chosen to troop their colour. Almost a thousand soldiers and around 240 horses will perform a "khaki rehearsal" on Thursday in London.

Princess Kate would usually be expected to take part in The Colonel’s Review a week before the Trooping. However, the princess’s ongoing cancer treatment means it is unlikely that she will be in attendance.

Kate is all excited to attend the event with her children but William and King Charles won't allow until her medical team gives her green light.
