Queen Elizabeth today canceled a special service at the church to mark the 70th anniversary of her assumption of government. Yesterday, the 96-year-old Queen was cheered by a large crowd on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. According to the palace, she really enjoyed the fighter planes and parade of colorful troops, but it just wasn’t quite right.
The 96-year-old queen has reduced her number of public appearances in recent months, according to the palace, because she suffers from ‘movement problems’. That is why she will not be present at the service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London tomorrow. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen has been forced to conclude that she would not be here with great hesitation.”
In the evening the Queen was still in party with illuminated beacons. More than 3,500 lights have been lit in the UK and in the capitals of Commonwealth countries, symbolizing unity between nations.
Andrew is not there
Elizabeth is now the United Kingdom’s longest-serving monarch. World leaders such as US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron and Pope Francis conveyed their congratulations on the anniversary.
The Corrupt Prince Andrew was absent yesterday. Earlier this year, he reached a settlement with Virginia Joffrey, the woman who accused him of sexual assault. According to Buckingham Palace, he will also not be present tomorrow because he has tested positive for coronavirus. It would be the only party Andrew was allowed to attend, as he was no longer a working member of the royal family.
This weekend there will be all kinds of anniversary celebrations taking place in the UK.
