Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her platinum jubilee from Thursday June 2 to Sunday June 5, 2022
She made a surprise appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the closing of the event
She showed her complicity with Prince George by slipping him an anecdote
For four days, the English massively celebrated the platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, which marked her 70 years of reign. On the program of the festivities: military parades, a mass or even a giant concert. While Queen Elizabeth II did not take part in the majority of the events due to her fragile health, she still made a point of appearing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace when the event closed on Sunday June 5.
For the occasion, she was accompanied by her direct heirs, Prince Charles with Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William with Kate Middleton, and Prince George with Charlotte and Louis. And if she had been caught answering a question from the mischievous prince Louis on Thursday, June 2, this time she found herself next to prince George. The 8-year-old little boy did not fail to show his pride in his great-grandmother by giving him many looks.
Queen Elizabeth II speaks to Prince George during the national anthem
During Elizabeth II’s balcony appearance, the national anthem was played and planes streaked across the sky spreading red, white and blue smoke. A nice touch that surprised the queen, who did not fail to let Prince William’s eldest know. Indeed, she quickly turned to him and addressed a few words to him.
According to The Mirror and a lip-reading expert, Prince Charles’ mother told Prince George, “Oh, that’s brilliant! I didn’t know!” A sentence that would have made the little boy smile and that shows the beautiful bond between the sovereign and the future king, who are 87 years apart.
