From Kate’s 40 years to Letizia’s 50 and Diana’s 25 to death: Agenda Royal 2022

Who more and who less already has a dietary 2022 in which to write down all the important dates that each of us will have: the birthday of a relative, the wedding anniversary of some friends, a medical appointment … techies‘they will be doing the same but in their Google calendar, to have everything in the palm of our mobile.

Whether you are the first or the second, we have prepared an agenda in which we collect all the royal birthdays and anniversaries that are going to be celebrated in this newly opened 2022. Well, not all of them, only those that form a round number: 10, 20, 25, 50, 70 … And although we thought there would be a good handful, we did not imagine that there would be so many, so we have decided to organize them by stations to make it easier .

Of course, the festivities to celebrate such important dates are conditioned by the development of the pandemic that continues to mark the order of our lives.

Winter 2022

The year starts strong with a lot of relevant appointments, some of them will also leave us good stories. For example, the 40 years that Kate Middlenton celebrates on January 9. In a week the duchess of cambridge She will be blowing candles months before her husband does, who also reaches quarantine in 2022 (he will have to wait until summer). We will be waiting to see if their brothers-in-law, dukes of sussex, send your congratulations. The last time Kate had something big to celebrate (last April marked the tenth anniversary of their wedding), Harry and Meghan sent their congratulations privately to avoid further stir, according to the program ‘Entertainment Tonight Canada’. The rest of the family (Carlos Camilla, Isabel II …) did so on their social networks.

Throughout the winter we will also attend the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the Margaret II of Denmark who turns 50 years of reign, the 60th birthday of Abdullah II of Jordan or the 70s of the arrival to the throne of the longest-lived queen of the recent monarchies, Isabel II, hot on the heels of Louis XIV who accumulated 72 years and 110 days of reign.

Spring 2022

As Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer said: “As long as there is spring in the world, there will be poetry!” The most flowery and poetic time of the year begins with a birthday with a children’s menu: Isla Phillips, the great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, turns 10 on March 29. Isla is the second daughter (the other is Savannah) from Peter phillips and Canadian Autumn Kelly.

There are a couple more birthdays that we review below, but the one that may interest us the most, for all that it entails, is the 60th Wedding Anniversary of the kings don Juan Carlos and doña Sofía. The ceremony was held on May 14 in Athens and featured 8 selected bridesmaids by the queen emerita among close relatives, as is the case of the Infanta Pilar and the Princess Irene of Greece, as well as distant cousins, such as Alexandra de Kent or Tatiana Radziwill, to be part of the wedding party. There were two ceremonies, one for the Catholic rite and the other for the Orthodox rite, which served to unite two royal houses, one reigning at that time and another not, although later the tables would turn. The celebration took place in the old Royal Palace of Athens where the guests gathered, among whom there were no less than 143 from 27 monarchies of the world.

Summer 2022

The other half of the most praised and loved royal couple (in the UK they see it feasible that they were the ones to occupy the throne instead of Carlos and Camilla to succeed Queen Elizabeth) is also forty. William He does it months after his wife has met them and we will see if there is a rivalry to celebrate both treats.

We will have to wait until the end of the summer for us to see how the Queen Letizia celebrates his 50. The last time that a round figure was produced (40), the Royal House commemorated it with a photographic report signed by Cristina García Rodero, National Prize for Photography and Medal in Fine Arts. The snapshots, taken in the month of August, showed the, at that time, Princess of Asturias next to the prince philip and the infantas Leonor and Sofia in everyday prints never seen before. He also becomes aware of Letizia’s photogenicity through a series of portraits in which she appears with different models. The photographic report, inserted in the Casa Real website, was accompanied by a text that summarized the princess’s commitment to her institutional position, her travels and her numerous social commitments.
