Queen Elizabeth surprisingly appears on the balcony to close the jubilee celebration

The British Queen Elizabeth II she surprisingly appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Sunday to close it Platinum Jubilee Celebration.

She appeared on the balcony with two future kings: Prince Charles and Prince William and their wives, Camille, Duchess of Cornwall, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Three children, William and Catherine, Princes George and Lewis and Princess Charlotte, also appeared on the balcony.

The queen appeared for only a few minutes. She waved to thousands of people at the National Mall, who sang “God Save the Queen,” according to BBC News.

Elizabeth, 96, was forced to reduce some of her appearances on the platinum jubilee, which marked her 70th year on the throne. She could not attend the Thanksgiving service on Friday and the concert on Saturday due to movement problems.

As the celebration was coming to an end, Elizabeth sent a message thanking the British.

“When it comes to celebrating 70 years as your queen, there is no guide to follow,” the message reads. “This is really the first time. But I was humiliated and deeply moved that so many people took to the streets to celebrate my platinum jubilee. Although I may not have personally attended every event, my heart was with all of you; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, with the support of my family. “

She said she was “inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship” she saw over the weekend, adding that she hoped “this renewed sense of community will be felt for many years to come”.

Earlier on Sunday, the Queen’s hologram appeared in a 260-year-old chariot, the same one she rode during the coronation, with 200 horses marching through London to Buckingham Palace. The finale of the parade was magnified by singer Ed Sheeran, who sang “Perfect” and dedicated it to Elizabeth and her late husband, Prince Philip.

At a concert on Saturday night, Charles honored her as “Your Majesty, Mom,” then paid tribute to her “life’s selfless service.” The Queen appeared in a previously recorded video with Paddington Bear.

“You met us and talked to us. You laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you have been there for us, for these 70 years,” Charles said as scenes from the Queen’s life were projected on the palace walls. “You promised to serve your whole life – you keep delivering. That’s why we’re here. That’s what we’re celebrating tonight.”

William preceded his father with remarks that highlighted the Queen’s longstanding commitment to the environment, as he stressed the need to combat climate change.

Elizabeth’s 70-year throne makes her the longest-serving monarch in British history, followed by Queen Victoria, who ruled for more than 63 years. The longest-serving monarch in history is King Louis of France, who ruled for 72 years, and Thai Bhumibol Adulyadej has been on the throne for more than 70 years (and more days than the Queen).

The family drama, so far, has not managed to overshadow the Queen’s celebration. Her estranged grandson, Prince Harry and his wife Megan were present at the Thanksgiving service on Friday, while the rest of the family congratulated their daughter Lilibet on her first birthday on social media.

The only person so far who seems to have stolen the show from Elizabeth was her four-year-old great-grandson, Louiswhose reaction to loud planes flying overhead has been seen around the world.
