Duchess Kate is said to have revealed how the Queen experienced the first day of the anniversary celebrations. It was “very exhausting”.

On Thursday (June 2), the celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II’s (96) platinum jubilee began. The monarch appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace following the Trooping the Color military parade.

The palace announced on Thursday evening that Queen Elizabeth II would not attend the service the following day. “The Queen thoroughly enjoyed today’s birthday parade and flypast, but felt a little uncomfortable,” quoted Sky News as saying. .
