The King and Queen are set to commemorate the first anniversary of the late Queen Elizabeth II's passing privately. There are no plans for any public events, and Charles and Camilla, currently on their summer break, will not be hosting a private family gathering at Balmoral.
Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96 at Balmoral on 8 September 2022, after a reign of 70 years. The UK observed a ten-day national mourning period following her death. Her lying in state was held at Westminster Hall from 14 to 16 September, where approximately 250,000 individuals, including former footballer David Beckham, paid their respects.
A State Funeral took place at Westminster Abbey on 19 September 2022, followed by a committal service at St George's Chapel, Windsor.
During the week of the anniversary, it is understood that the King and Queen will not be participating in any public engagements.
Charles has experienced several significant moments during his first year as head of state, such as his inaugural overseas state visit to Germany and his first Christmas speech.
The King and Queen were jointly crowned at Westminster Abbey in May, with a congregation of 2,500 people in attendance. The ceremony was also broadcast on television, and it was watched by over 20 million people across Britain.
At present, Charles and Camilla continue to live at Clarence House. However, it is anticipated that they will relocate to Buckingham Palace in 2027, once the ongoing renovation of the Palace's North Wing and the completion of their private apartments are finished. The renovation process is expected to take four years.
Before her passing, the late Queen privately commemorated the death of her father, King George VI, who passed away on 6th February 1952, at Sandringham.
Princess Elizabeth was only 25 years old when she became queen and was already a mother to Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
While on a tour of Kenya with the late Duke of Edinburgh, she received the news of her father's death at Sandringham House.
