Queen Elizabeth II (96) has heralded the celebration of her platinum throne jubilee with the “Trooping the Color” parade. The Queen appeared with cousin Prince Edward (86), Duke of Kent, on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

She completed the performance with a walking stick and showed a happy smile. As the monarch stepped onto the balcony, the crowd gathered outside Buckingham Palace erupted in incredible cheers. A moment for the history books!

Away from the “Trooping the Color” parade in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, there was an incident. Demonstrators broke barriers and were arrested by police.
