The Queen's Plane Forced To Abort Landing During Return To Windsor Castle

The Queen’s flight back from
Balmoral to Windsor Castle faced a setback as the plane was forced to abort
landing due to lightning, it has been reported.

Her Majesty, 96, was
travelling from Scotland back to her Berkshire royal residence when her
13-seater was caught in an electrical storm, rain and hail which forced the
pilot to abandon landing on the first attempt, according to The Sun.

Responding to reports, a
spokesperson for Buckingham Palace, said: “The Queen’s flight was delayed
due to a lightning storm, all the correct procedures were followed and there
were no safety concerns.”

The 96-year-old monarch
travelled to Balmoral last week and spent five nights at her Scottish country
estate where she was able to relax and rest ahead of what will undoubtedly be
an exciting but busy long weekend of Jubilee celebrations.

The Queen normally visits
Balmoral at this time of year and also spends an extended amount of time there
over the summer period, usually travelling in mid-July and staying until
September or October.

She is now gearing up for a
four-day extravaganza of Jubilee events which begin on Thursday with her annual
birthday parade, Trooping the Colour. For the first time ever, the monarch, who
suffers ongoing mobility issues, will reportedly take the salute at the
military event from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

It’s understood that the
Household Division will march to the front of the palace where the Queen, who
now uses a walking stick, will appear on the balcony to take the salute, to
avoid her having to make the journey to Horse Guards Parade by carriage, or
sitting on a dais for a lengthy period of time.

As well as Trooping the
Colour, other highlights of the Jubilee weekend include the service of thanksgiving
at St Paul’s Cathedral to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70-year reign on Friday, as
well as the Royal Pageant and Jubilee luncheon on Sunday afternoon.
