This Sunday, millions of Britons gather at parties to celebrate the Queen over meals together.
Millions of Brits are gathering for a meal today to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s (96) platinum jubilee. Heir to the throne Prince Charles (73) and his wife Duchess Camilla (74) are also part of the party. The two came to the Oval Cricket Ground to admire the delicacies set up at London’s cricket stadium, cut cakes and toast the Queen.
According to media reports, millions of such parties are held in Britain to mark the Queen’s Jubilee. There will also be a pageant this Sunday (June 5th). In addition, the royals could show themselves again on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the end of the celebrations. It is not known whether the Queen herself will make an appearance.
Celebrations have been going on since Thursday
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations have been underway since Thursday (June 2nd). The monarch appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace following the Trooping the Color military parade. However, she missed the anniversary service in St. Paul’s Cathedral and the subsequent reception in London’s Guildhall on Friday. The 96-year-old was also absent from the Epsom Derby and a concert at Buckingham Palace on Saturday. Because of her limited mobility, she had already canceled some appointments in the past few months.
