  • Buckingham Palace has revealed changes ahead of Trooping the Color next year

The Prince of Wales would become Colonel of the Welsh Guards instead.

Buckingham Palace announced the changes ahead of next year, which marks the birthday of the British monarch for more than 250 years.

Prince Andrew inherited the position of Colonel of the Grenadier Guards from his late father, the Duke of Edinburgh, when he retired from public life in 2017.

The King’s Birthday Parade – the first for Charles – will be held at a slightly later date on 17 June. The King’s actual birthday is November 14.

The Household Oath would witness the Horse Guards parade, where the King would attend and take the salute. There are seven regiments of the senior military unit, and they are responsible for performing the ceremonial and public duties of the state.

The appointment of colonel-in-chief for regiments is usually reserved by the reigning monarch, but each also has a colonel who is usually either a member of the royal family or a senior officer.

Andrew inherited the position of Colonel of the Grenadier Guards from his late father, the Duke of Edinburgh, when he retired from public life in 2017.

As one of the oldest and most prestigious regiments in the British Army, it was seen as a plum role – and one that held emotional significance especially given how popular Phillip was. He served in this position for 42 years and was loved by both the rank and file, as well as the senior officers.

Andrew, never keen on horsemanship like his brothers, took riding lessons so he could show up on horseback. But in the wake of his disastrous interview with BBC Newsnight in 2019, the Queen forced the prince to step down from his official royal duties.

The change will also see the Princess of Wales promoted to her first role in the military, taking over the position of Colonel of the Irish Guards from her husband.

But he was allowed to keep 10 military affiliations, including a Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, while working to clear his name amid the scandal of his association with US pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He was finally stripped of the ceremonial title earlier this year in the wake of his decision to settle a civil suit with one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, who also accused him of assault. He has always and vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

Sources said it was the ultimate insult to the former Royal Navy helicopter pilot, who boasted of his association with the army. Camilla’s appointment to the position was seen as a surprise last night, but may be interpreted as a wise move by the King.

As Queen Consort, she is the highest-ranking woman in the royal family, which may give Andrew little cause for complaint, and William, as a colonel in the Welsh Guards, will look forward to continuing to forge his ties to the nation.

Kate has long accompanied her husband to the St. Patrick’s Day parades of the Irish Guards, handing out sprigs of shamrocks — but now she’ll be a colonel of the regiment in her own right. However, you are not expected to wear a uniform. Prince Harry is an army veteran who has served twice in Afghanistan.

He would have been expected to become a colonel of a regiment had he not resigned his royalist general and moved to California with his wife, Megan.
