Royal calendar: All the royal milestones to come in 2021

Royal family 'need to plug finances to cover deficit' says expert

Coronavirus has dominated the lives of everyone throughout 2020, resulting in a miserable year for the UK and across the world. Both Prince Charles and his son Prince William had the virus earlier in the year but luckily recovered well. While the Royal Family, like families across the UK, will not be able to come together this Christmas and New Year, the family have an exciting year ahead with a number of special occasions and additions coming up in 2021.

Prince Philip’s 100th birthday

Prince Philip will soon be celebrating his 100th birthday on June 10th, 2021.

No public plans have been made for the prince’s centenary celebrations.

The prince retired from public life several years ago, but occasionally makes statements and takes part in ceremonies for his patronages and major events.
