Buckingham Palace has green lit another major royal event for King Charles following reports of delay due to UK elections.

King Charles is set to attend the annual Garter Day service at Windsor Castle next Monday, June 17.

The extravaganza will be marked by colourful Order of the Garter procession, which will see senior royals and Knights and Ladies Companion parade to St George’s Chapel.

The King and Queen Camilla, alongside other senior royal members, will return to the castle by carriage after the service.

The Duchess of Gloucester is in for a special honour as she will be invested into the ancient order of chivalry after years of service.

Prince Andrew will sit out the procession, owing to his lack of military titles and status as a working royals.

However, he will likely join the King and the rest of his family for the investiture in the castle’s garter throne and the traditional lunch afterwards.

It is pertinent to note that the royal brothers are not currently on good terms amid reports the Duke is refusing to comply with the monarch’s orders to vacate the Royal Lodge.

Prince William’s attendance is still in the air, while Kate Middleton is not expected to attend due to her ongoing battle with cancer.

The upcoming royal engagement will take place two days after Trooping the Colour, the King’s official birthday parade, which will see the monarch take salue from a carriage rather than on horseback.
