The last day of the celebration of the platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II has passed in London. The Queen stepped onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the final part of the celebrations in honor of the 70th anniversary of her reign - the parade on the Mall. Together with the Queen, Prince Charles, his wife the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, Prince William with his wife Kate Middleton and children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis came out on the balcony.
The celebrations lasted for four days, and the Queen herself attended them personally only on the first day at the Trooping the colours parade, and on the final day of the celebration. After the first exit, representatives of the palace reported that the queen felt unwell.
The official Instagram account of the royal family* published a statement by the queen.
I am flattered and deeply touched that so many people took to the streets to celebrate my platinum anniversary.
Although I was unable to attend each event in person, my heart was with all of you, and I remain determined to serve you to the best of my ability and with the support of my family," the queen said in a statement.
On the fourth day of the celebration, the youngest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Louis, was again in the spotlight. The boy reacted emotionally to the parade and communicated with his mother and other members of the royal family: Mike Tindall, who was sitting behind him, entertained Prince Louis with funny faces. Earlier, the boy had already become the hero of memes.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their children were not present at the events, as they left the UK before the end of the celebration. Earlier, the Dukes of Sussex took part in the service at St. Paul's Cathedral, but did not go out on the balcony with other members of the royal family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also hosted a private party on the occasion of their daughter Lilibet's birthday. The holiday was held on Saturday, and Zara Tindall's children attended it.
