King Charles III's office has reportedly prepared Trooping the Colour plan that will soon be announced by the Palace. 

There was speculation as to whether the annual event will still go as per tradition after the Palace announced that the royal family will be postponing several upcoming engagements due to the snap general election.

The British Army has already confirmed King Charles III's birthday parade would go ahead on Saturday June 15.

However, it's yet to be confirmed whether the Princess of Wales, who's said to be very excited to join the monarch with her husband and children at the event, will attend the celebrations. 

Buckingham Palace and the Ministry of Defence have explored ways in which the monarch could take part in the event while avoiding any undue risk to his health.

The options included watching the ceremony from a podium rather than on horseback and being driven from Buckingham Palace in a carriage.

The 75-year-old King, who became the first monarch to appear on horseback for the Trooping the Colour last June, is expected to break the tradition.

"The King is most likely to be taking part in Trooping via carriage this year but a final decision is yet to be made," a source previously told The Times.

The Palace previously confirmed "forthcoming engagements will be adapted where necessary" to accommodate for the King’s recovery following his cancer treatment.

It's being claimed Prince William does not want Kate Middleton to take any risk as she's still undergoing cancer treatment.

King Charles III, Queen Camilla, Prince William and other senior royals are expected  to watch the fly-past on the Buckingham Palace balcony, however, Kate will attend the event if her medical team gives her green light.
