UK launches platinum jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II

Saudi leaders congratulate Queen Elizabeth on her 70-year reign

All eyes were on the balcony of Buckingham Palace last Thursday where Queen Elizabeth II seemed to declare the commencement of celebrations to honor the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne, a record era in the British royal family’s history.

Fans of the royal family set up tents in London to be in the front rows of celebrations for the platinum jubilee of the world’s most renowned queen, whose health is deteriorating at the age of ninety-six.

In a written message, the Queen and Supreme Leader of 15 countries from the UK to Canada to New Zealand said: “I hope that the coming days will be an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved over the seventy years and look to the future with confidence and enthusiasm.”

An unprecedented event that will not be repeated

This is the longest reign of any British king. Any other king is unlikely to be able to do so. The heir to the monarchy, Prince Charles, is 73 years old, and his son, William, will shortly turn 40.

The festivities, which will include plays, parades, and a major concert, will be off with the traditional military procession known as “Tropping the Color,” which will include Prince Charles riding atop a horse like his mother did, while planes fly overhead.

The Queen walked out onto the world-famous balcony of Buckingham Palace, where the royal family has been commemorating momentous events since the nineteenth century.

The main active members of the family and their children are supposed to stand by Queen Elizabeth. Nor will it be Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who will be watching the show from another building.

Street celebrations

According to the YouGov polling firm, the Queen is still quite popular in the United Kingdom, with a 75 percent approval rating, while Prince Charles has 50 percent support.

The study found that 62 percent of people want the monarchy to stay, although sentiment is divided among those aged 18 to 24. (33 percent support and 31 percent oppose). Only 39% of Britons believe the royal family will last another 100 years.

In this questionable transition, the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations provide a time-out focused on the Queen’s personality.

Following her appearance on Buckingham Palace’s balcony, she will take part in a nighttime ceremony in which light panels will be lighted from Windsor Palace, west of London, where she is now residing.

On Friday, all family members, including Harry, his wife Megan, and Prince Andrew, will attend a Thanksgiving Mass at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Despite her enormous affection for the Epsom Derby, the Queen will be absent on Saturday, according to newspapers.

This will be followed by a major concert at Buckingham Palace, which the Queen will broadcast live on television, with 22,000 people in attendance and musicians such as Alisha Keys and Diana Ross.

10,000 people, on Sunday, are expected to march in the streets of London. Thousands of joyful feasts in neighborhoods and street celebrations in honor of the Queen, who rose above crises and survived through numerous eras with incredible resolve, will be held.
