How 4-year-old Prince Louis Queens stole the show
Whether he shows his boredom, protects his ears from the roar of planes, or shakes the crowd with a mask, Prince Louis, 4, melts the audience on Thursday, during Elizabeth II’s jubilee.
Prince William’s third child – he’s Elizabeth II’s grandson and second in line to the throne – caused a stir on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, where the royal family saw a flyover at the end of a color worship parade.
Standing in a blue mariner (reminiscent of what his father wore in 1985) between the 96-year-old Sovereign and his mother, his sister Charlotte, 7, and George, 8, multiplied Louise Mimicry.
He looked at his elbows with boredom, closed his ears, opened his mouth wide, forcing a smile from his grandmother, very seriously. His mother leaned in several times to whisper a few words in his ear.
What happened on Thursday, the first day of the festival?
Tens of thousands of people cheered Queen Elizabeth II on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Thursday morning, the first day of her 70 – year reign, an unprecedented longevity for the British monarchy.
This was the most anticipated high point at the four-day Platinum Jubilee celebrations for the most famous 96-year-old sovereign, whose health is now weak.
The Queen returned to the balcony shortly afterwards for the Royal Air Force flyover, this time with 17 members of the royal family and their children on official duty.
In the evening the Queen erected a 21-meter-tall wooden sculpture in front of Buckingham Palace, far from Windsor Castle.

Why Elizabeth II would not attend her Jubilee Mass
Queen Elizabeth II, cheered by a crowd on Buckingham’s balcony on Thursday, will miss the religious service celebrated on Friday for her 70 – year reign due to “certain discomfort” due to poor health.
“The Queen enjoyed the parade for her birthday today (Thursday), but she felt some discomfort,” Buckingham Palace said.
“Considering the way and function required for the Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, His Majesty has reluctantly decided that he will not attend,” he added.
The announcement again raises concerns about the deteriorating health of the popular 96-year-old Sovereign, who has difficulty walking and has rarely seen an official appearance since a night in hospital in October.
The first public appearance of Megan and Harry
Prince Harry and his wife Megan will be the center of attention this Friday, after a sensible public return during the parade to mark Elizabeth II’s inauguration.

The trip to London is to give the couple the opportunity to present Lilliput II, Harry’s second daughter, named after the Queen, to Elizabeth II. On Jubilee weekend, she will be one year old on Saturday.
The agenda for the day
A meeting to thank Elizabeth II for her 70-year reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, during which the Great Ball Bell (Great Ball Bell) will be rung, which is very rare.

The second day of the festival begins
Hello everyone, and welcome to the second day of the Jubilee Celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II.
