Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th Year As Monarch

After testing positive for COVID, the Duke of York has withdrawn from his one and only appearance at the Platinum Jubilee. In a routine test today, Prince Andrew, who has seen the Queen in recent days, tested positive for coronavirus. On Friday, he’ll not attend a thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral honoring the Queen’s reign.

Despite stepping back from royal duties, the palace allowed him to attend the family celebration, which was supposed to be his only public appearance for the Jubilee. All senior individuals of the Royal Family, in addition to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Queen’s grandchildren, are predicted to attend.

Good morning, at 7.16 a.m. As the first day of the long-awaited Platinum Jubilee begins today, crowds are already forming on The Mall. Here are the specifics of present-day formal Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations started out at 7.44 a.m. with a message to the country that it may sit up for the future with self-belief and joy.

While we anticipate the Trooping of the Colour procession to begin at 10 a.m., you could watch it live on our live stream. At 9.24 a.m., Gordon Rayner, one of my colleagues, is live-blogging from outside Buckingham Palace. At 9.36 a.m, the Queen and her own circle of relatives will be on the balcony of Buckingham Palace these days to observe a six-minute fly-beyond of greater than 70 planes as a part of the celebrations.

Many Royals fans were in line for hours – a few even renting out overnight – to peer at the flypast and balcony. The following are a number of the objects we are able to assume seeing all through the flyover: The first day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations will feature 70 planes, such as Apache helicopters, Typhoons, and the Red Arrows. 

Following Trooping the Colour, dozens of aircraft from the Royal Navy, Army, and Royal Air Force will fly over Buckingham Palace. The Royal Navy Wildcat, Royal Navy Merlin, and British Army Apache helicopters will be the first to fly above London.

The Parade of the Colors is at 10 a.m. This year, the Queen will salute the Trooping the Colour from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Around 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses, and 400 musicians will take part in the annual procession to honour the Queen on her official birthday. Members of the Royal family on horseback and in carriages will accompany them down The Mall to Horse Guards’ Parade.

At 11.45 a.m. to 1.15 p.m. is the RAF flyover. The celebration will conclude with an RAF flypast, which will be witnessed from the Buckingham Palace balcony by members of the Royal Family.

Beacons will be lit at 9.25 p.m. Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the UK’s long-standing custom of lighting beacons to commemorate Royal Jubilees, weddings, and coronations will also take place today.

In the evening, after Trooping the Colour, the Queen will go back to Windsor for a middle-of-the-night ceremony, during which she will symbolically mild the primary jubilee beacon in a joint rite with her grandson, the Duke of Cambridge. For the first time, beacons will be illuminated in each of the Commonwealth nations’ capital cities.
