The British monarch celebrates the 70th anniversary of his accession to the royal throne. To mark this extraordinary anniversary, the United Kingdom is celebrating its four-day platinum jubilee. The celebration began on Thursday with a festive parade of the forces of color. Elizabeth II appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with members of the royal family, and the event culminated in a flight of Royal Air Force aircraft. Friday at St. Paul, a prayer of thanksgiving was held over the Queen’s long reign.
Great concert in front of Buckingham Palace
On Saturday, members of the royal family showed up at Epsom Downs, where they watched the 243rd edition of the famous horse derby. In turn, in the evening, in front of Buckingham Palace, a magnificent concert was held “The Platinum Party in the Palace”, during which such stars as. Rod Steward, Alicia Keys and Diana Ross. Performances were punctuated by thanksgiving to Elizabeth II, who was recorded by, among others Daniel Craig, Paul McCartney or Michelle Obama.
The runway was attended by a number of representatives of the royal family, led by Crown Prince Charles and his wife Princess Camilla, as well as Prince William, Princess Kate and the children who stole the entire show. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were missing.
Elizabeth II and … Paddington Bear
Also not attending the event was Elizabeth II, who had been experiencing mobility issues in recent weeks. For this reason, her participation in the jubilee celebrations is very limited. However, the Monarchini did not succeed to the audience at the concert. Immediately before the show, a 2.5-minute film with her participation was broadcast on the screens, in which she drinks tea with Paddington and shares sandwiches. Then they both tap tea spoons on their cups to the beat of the Queen’s song “We Will Rock You,” which opened the party.
The spot referred to the film in which she starred with Daniel Craig as James Bond for the 2012 London Olympics.
Tender words of Prince Charles
During the ceremony, Prince Charles paid tribute to the Queen. The heir to the throne addressed her from the podium with the affectionate “Mama,” to which the crowd responded with cheers. You laugh and cry with us, and most importantly, you have been with us all these seventy years. You have committed to serving all your life – and you continue to do so. Elizabeth II’s son said you are still making history.
