In seven decades she hasn’t let that take her away.

It will be a very special event: In just under two weeks, Queen Elizabeth II (96) will celebrate the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne. But of all things a traditional main actress Military Color Forces Review Missing!

As The Telegraph reported on Sunday, much of the anniversary celebrations on June 2 in front of Buckingham Palace will likely take place without the Queen of England. As with the last public appearance that was canceled, the Queen must pass.

Among other things, the Queen was unable to deliver her speech at the opening of Parliament in London in May due to health reasons.

She is represented by her son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles (73), who will take his mother’s place at the ceremonial military parade and receive the legendary „royal salute”.

Despite the numerous cancellations of public appointments recently, people have been hoping that they will be able to see their queen at least in early June. This will also be Elizabeth’s first encounter with her granddaughter, Lilipet Diana (11 months). Grandma certainly does not want to miss it, but the appearance of weakness in public is out of the question for a strong ruler.

„I know she’s been talked to several times about using a wheelchair,” a palace insider told BILD. “It is out of the question for her. Prince Philip also refused to the end.”

This means that for the first time in her very long reign, the Queen will not be able to receive her troops, who will march in her honor. In 1953, Elizabeth witnessed her first military parade marking her coronation. Since then she hasn’t missed a single one.

June 2 will also be a turning point when Prince Charles takes his mother’s place for the first time in the „Trooping the Color” scene. An image that Royal fans should get used to. The Prince of Wales will one day wave from the balcony as King.

According to The Telegraph, there is still hope that the Queen will attend at least part of the celebrations marking the 70th jubilee of her throne. An appearance on the balcony of the famous palace can still be imagined.

Italy: Verona allocates drinking water due to drought

Published

on

Open the tap and fill it with whatever you want – this is no longer possible in Verona and Pisa. Cities in northern Italy, popular with tourists, are rationing drinking water due to the ongoing drought.

Due to the weather conditions and their consequences for the water supply, Verona’s mayor has signed a decree „limiting the consumption of drinking water for private purposes,” the website of the city of 250,000 people said on Saturday.

Therefore, it is prohibited until August 31 to use drinking water to irrigate gardens and sports facilities, wash cars and fill swimming pools. Failure to comply with the ban may result in a fine of up to 500 euros.

Mayor Michel Conte also signed a similar order in Pisa: from July 11, drinking water may only be used at home in the Tuscany city popular with tourists.

Half a dozen districts have already asked the government in Rome to declare a state of emergency to allow for more aid and civil defense operations. Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced that appropriate steps may follow on Monday.

Like other European countries, Italy has experienced an unusual heat wave in recent weeks, while at the same time there has been no rain. The agriculturally important Po Valley in northern Italy is experiencing its worst drought in 70 years. According to the country’s largest farmers’ association, Coldiretti, drought threatens more than 30 percent of the country’s agricultural production and half of the livestock in the Po Valley. Parma pork is mainly produced there.

The water level in Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda is much lower than normal at this time of year. The Tiber, which flows through Rome, also has low water.

Another consequence of the drought: Electricity generation from hydropower has dropped dramatically. Hydroelectric power stations are located mainly in the mountains in the north of the country. They usually provide approximately one-fifth of the electricity needed in Italy.
