The Duke of Cambridge will carry out the Colonel’s Review on Horse Guards Parade on Saturday, May 28. The review, taking place at the final rehearsal, will see the Prince undertake a “final evaluation” of the parade “before it goes before Her Majesty the Queen”. The last time The Duke carried out this inspection was in 2017.

An operational note, published by Kensington Palace, said: “The The Duke of Cambridge, Colonel of the Irish Guards, will carry out the Colonel’s Review on Horse Guards Parade on Saturday, 28th May at Horse Guards parade.

“The Colonel’s Review is the final evaluation of the parade before it goes before Her Majesty the Queen during the Trooping of the Colour on the 2nd June as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

“This year, the honour of Trooping their Colour falls to the Irish Guards, and as Colonel of the Regiment, the Duke will lead the final review.

“The first review was conducted by Major General Chris Ghika on Saturday 21st May.”

It added: “During the parade, more than 1,500 soldiers and 350 horses will carry out complex battlefield drill manoeuvres to a programme of music.

“In this Platinum Jubilee Year, various elements of the music will nod to Her Majesty The Queen with song such as ‘Long Live Elizabeth’.”
