To commemorate the queen’s extraordinary 70 years of reign, fighter jets flew in formation.
The queen also “took the salute from the balcony” for the first-ever time as a stream of British soldiers, scarlet-clad, marched on horseback, passed below. Huge crowds of people cheered their love for their long-serving “Platinum King” and shouted support.
The queen and Prince Edward, Duke Of Kent, 86, shared the salute on the balcony. Both are descendents of King George V. They stood tall next to each other in their military uniforms.
