Most Royal events take place during the height of the ceremonial season in the colourful month of June. June has become known as the Royal month due to the sheer number of ceremonial Royal events which are undertaken during this month. However there are many other ceremonial events which appear throughout the calendar year. Nothing can grab one’s attention quite like the patriotic Royal events and ceremonies of Great Britain. These include the State Opening of Parliament, Trooping the Colour and Garter Day, which are some of the most colourful and exciting events in our country’s calendar. Less splendid, but nonetheless still important, are the Investitures and Audiences, making up the Royal working day. Royal ceremonies and events form an integral part of The Queen’s role as Head of State, and almost all hark back to traditions of yesteryear, their symbols and meanings linking centuries past and present.
