Queen Elizabeth II's Reign

The Queen & Prince Philip were usually the only royals to attend all three of the Queen's Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace. In 2018, the Queen started attending only 2 of the 3, with Charles hosting the one on her behalf. In 2022, due to mobility issues, Queen Elizabeth attended none of the Garden Parties with Charles, William & Edward each hosting one on her behalf.  

Usually, each working royal attends one of the 3 Garden Parties, with the Queen's cousins sometimes attending 2.
