Her Majesty could be replaced by other members of the Royal Family at the Trooping the Colour display for the first time in 70 years.

Plans are reportedly being made for senior members of The Firm to stand in for the 95-year-old Queen during important parts of the Platinum Jubilee ceremony, reports The Telegraph.

Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Anne may take the royal salute instead as the monarch continues to adapt her busy schedule around her mobility problems.

However it is still hoped that Queen, 96, may be able to attend other sections of the landmark event at Horse Guards Parade on Thursday June 2.

On the same day, the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories will come together to light a beacon at the same time as the principal beacon at Buckingham Palace.

Then Friday June 3, a Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral, before the star-studded Platinum Party At The Palace on Saturday June 4.

Queen and Adam Lambert will perform first at the concert — which will be broadcast live on BBC — while Alicia Keys, Nile Rodgers and the UK's Eurovision runner-up Sam Ryder will also take the stage later in the evening.

Hopes of weather fit for a Queen have been raised after forecasters predicted the anniversary of Her Majesty's 70 years on the throne would coincide with an extended spell of warm and bright conditions.

John Hammond of weathertrending said: “The potential is there for a lot of rain in some places. May 23-29 may bring a cooler contrast, but there is Jubilee optimism.

“Warmer weather is likely as we start June, with plenty of dryness in the early part of the month for Platinum Jubilee celebrations.”
