Little Prince George was the star of the Queen’s platinum jubilee concert. He obviously had a lot of fun doing it.
Is George (8) a little party prince? The son of Prince William (39) and Duchess Kate (40) was apparently in a celebratory mood on Saturday night. He attended the platinum jubilee concert for Queen Elizabeth II (96) with his parents and his sister, Princess Charlotte (7). According to British media reports, the eight-year-old proved to be lyrical when he sang along to the hit “Sweet Caroline”. Sir Rod Stewart (77) was on the stage of the anniversary celebration at Buckingham Palace.
The fact that George had previously made a surprising appearance in Cardiff with his parents and sister was apparently not noticeable to the little royal. In pictures from the evening’s event, he could be seen laughing and joking with his father in the Royal Box. In addition to the Cambridge family, many other high-ranking royals such as Prince Charles (73) and Duchess Camilla (74), Zara (41) and Mike Tindall (43) and Princess Eugenie (32) and Princess Beatrice (33) attended the concert with their husbands .
Prince Edward (58) and his wife Sophie (57), who were in Northern Ireland on Saturday, watched along with their children Lady Louise Windsor (18) and James, Viscount Severn (14) as stars such as Alicia Keys ( 41), Duran Duran or Craig David (41) performed. Princess Anne (71) and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence (67) were also there. The Queen’s eldest grandchild, Peter Phillips, 44, brought his daughters Savannah and Isla to celebrate.
Prince Harry (37) and his wife Duchess Meghan (40) were apparently not at the concert. According to the “Daily Mail” they are said to have watched the event in Windsor with the Queen on TV.
Queen drinks tea with Paddington Bear
The Queen herself was not there, but opened the party for her platinum throne jubilee – together with another British icon: Paddington Bear. The Queen showcased her comedic and acting talents in a pre-taped skit that was reportedly aired for attendees at the Buckingham Palace concert in London.
The Queen and Paddington Bear meet in the clip for tea, which the bear drinks straight from the pot. “Maybe you’d like a jam sandwich,” Paddington offers afterwards, pulling one out of his hat. “I always have one for emergencies.” The Queen replies, “Me too. I’ll keep mine here for later” – and pulls a sandwich out of her famous purse. “Happy anniversary, ma’am,” Paddington says at the end. “And thanks for everything.” To which the Queen replies, “That’s very kind.”
