Spring has sprung for the Royal family!

Spring has sprung for the Royal family!

The royal family love many things, and spring is one of them.

Buckingham Palace took to Instagram to show off Her Majesty’s wonderful garden, and even took the time to share just how wonderful the Palace’s Rose Garden is during the spring.

"Sunrise over the lake in the Buckingham Palace Garden. Today marks the first official day of spring, as we all look towards brighter days ahead," the caption read.

"The garden at The Queen's London residence sees much change over the course of a year. Despite its urban location, the garden is home to a remarkable array of flora and fauna."

"The thought of summer. Let's hope we can try and get back to normal. Whatever, that will be!!" one user wrote in the comments. .

The positive Instagram post follows after it was announced that the Queen's Official Birthday Parade would not go ahead as usual.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: "Following consultation with government and other relevant parties it has been agreed that The Queen's Official Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead this year in its traditional form in central London."

"Options for an alternative Parade, in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle, are being considered."

Trooping the Colour was supposed to happen on June 12 to mark the monarch's 95th birthday and would have taken place two days after Prince Philip's 100th birthday.

It was also announced that the annual Garter Service, which is usually held around June, would not take place this year either.
