William on horseback (instead of the queen), the tests on day 1 of the Platinum Jubilee- Corriere.it

The spectacular glance. William on horseback, as until yesterday it was the queen’s turn, inspects the troops for the solemn ceremony of the Trooping the Color which next Thursday will kick off day 1 of the Platinum Jubilee. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, was in fact the protagonist of the dress rehearsal of the big event this morning: he inspected the Household Division during Colonel’s Review at Horseguards Parade, London. It is up to him, Colonel of the Irish Guards, with his father Charles and aunt Anna, in their respective uniforms, to review the troops as the queen did for seventy years, who will appear on the Balcony for the awaited official appearance that I will deliver to history this Jubilee, June 2. Surrounded by the Working Royals (for Harry and Meghan there could be an extra on the balcony at the end of the Jubilee, June 5th, according to their spokesperson). And while the dress rehearsal in London closes two years of preparations for these solemn celebrations, the Queen left for a long weekend in Balmoral, Scotland. To restore your energy and rekindle memories before the start on Thursday 2 June at the Platinum Jubilee. (Text: Enrica Roddolo)
