The upcoming Trooping the Colour ceremony that has marked the official birthday of the British sovereign for the last 260 years is historically carried out in June to make the most of the British summer sun. As mere mortals have only one birthday every year, it is all the more reason to go above and beyond with a celebration the King would be proud of in a castle that will impress come rain or shine.
For a grand Scottish affair, head to Storied Collection’s Cluny Castle in the Aberdeenshire hills where guests will be granted complete privacy and freedom throughout a celebratory stay. With a history of hosting gatherings and parties, the team at Cluny Castle pride themselves on curating events that are as bespoke as King Charles’ favourite suit. With the aid of exclusive and creative catering partners and imaginative event planners, guests are be able to sit back, relax, and bask in the luxurious home away from home.
Or if a rave style party fit for a King is preferable, head to the spectacular surroundings of South-West Scotland. The award winning Dunskey Estate and its bold vision will guarantee a transformative experience. With a sustainability ethos the King would be proud of, birthday celebrations at Dunskey promise to be immersive, magical, and peppered with unique elements. And when the night comes to a close, guests will retreat to their suites and rest in a bed fit for royalty.
So, why not take inspiration from King Charles himself – who has chosen to revive a royal tradition for the first time in over thirty years by joining his upcoming birthday parade on horseback – and begin a new tradition at one of the most regal and prestigious properties this country has to offer. Enjoyment and luxury can be had, even without King Charles’ golden carriage or meticulous military procession, but there’s no reason why your upcoming birthday celebration shouldn’t be just as memorable and momentous as the royal spectacle taking place this Saturday.
