It has been quite the weekend for royal followers, with lots of high-end fashion, family reunions, rare sightings and more. Now, as we sadly reach the end of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee festivities, Her Royal Majesty decided to leave us with a few surprises.
Throughout the weekend, the queen has been absent from a few of the events due to mobility issues, but she was still present at moments like the lighting of the Principal Beacon, as well as Trooping the Colour. And today, the queen made an unexpected appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony to close out the celebrations.
Queen Elizabeth chose a bright green ensemble for the occasion, and she was seen walking out to cheering crowds in a video that was shared to the royal family and BBC Instagram accounts. The caption read, “A smiling Queen appears on Buckingham Palace balcony as the nation thanks her for 70 years of dedicated service.”
