Queen Elizabeth will also follow Tomorrow’s Horse Derby, which was part of the platinum jubilee celebrations, on TV from her Windsor Castle residence. This was announced by Buckingham Palace, after the 96-year-old monarch had to personally give up attending a Thanksgiving service for her long reign at St Paul’s Cathedral, represented by heir Charles. Participation in the derby was left suspended in the official programs other than those in the church, which were scheduled and canceled due to the fatigue suffered by the king yesterday.
Meanwhile, the Queen is satisfied with meeting her granddaughter Lillipet for the first time, who will turn one year old tomorrow. According to sources in the Mirror, yesterday the Queen hosted a private lunch with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with their children after the “Trooping the Color” parade that opened yesterday’s celebration of the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
St Paul, the crowd cheers for Harry and Meghan
“Rebellious Dukes” Harry and Meghan were given a warm welcome by large sections of the public who witnessed the dignitaries arrive at St Paul’s Cathedral, in the heart of London, for the religious thanksgiving rites that concluded the second of the four days of public celebrations of the platinum jubilee of 70 years of Elizabeth II’s adult reign. She is 96 years old. Yesterday they remained behind the scenes of the balcony of Buckingham Palace, many in attendance paid tribute to the Dukes of Sussex – who for the occasion returned to the United Kingdom from the United States – and today they had the honor of lights at the entrance to the cathedral: manned by the Royal Guard and from the departments in full dress to the sound of bells.
