Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Anniversary Extravaganza: Best Moments – CNET – ApparelGeek

Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee was a celebration to remember.

From the 96-year-old monarch appearing via hologram for the pageant parade to the star-studded concert titled “Party at the Palace,” there were many highlights of the four-day extravaganza.

Here are some of Page Six’s favorite moments.

Cambridge kids steal the show

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge and Prince George of Cambridge visit Cardiff Castle on June 04, 2022 in Cardiff, Wales.  Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated from 2-5 June 2022 in the UK and Commonwealth to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne on 6 February 1952.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest child, Prince Louis, 4, stole the show from the Queen when he watched Trooping of the Color on Thursday – and again at the Pageant Parade on Sunday.

The boy, who wore his father’s sailor outfit to the same event in 1985, walked past his great-grandmother to secure a good vantage point for Thursday’s party.

He was then photographed making a slew of goofy faces, including one where he appeared to be screaming with his eyes closed and his hands over his ears as loud planes thundered overhead.

Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, also wowed royal fans when they unexpectedly joined their parents on an official visit to Wales on Saturday.

As part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were set to visit Cardiff Castle in Wales. Little did Royal fans know George and Charlotte would follow, but it came as a complete surprise when they were pictured with their parents.

The young royals walked alongside Kate and William and even accepted bouquets of flowers from the crowd.

It was a particularly memorable visit for George as he was the same age as his father when he made his first official trip to Wales. In March 1991, William joined the parents of Princess Diana and Prince Charles in Cardiff, also accepting flowers from well-wishers.

Over the weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also shared an adorable photo montage of their three children cooking via their official social media feeds.

Photos showed the youngsters sifting flour, cracking eggs and helping to decorate cupcakes with icing.

The night before, Prince George wowed crowds at the Party at the Palace concert when he sang Rod Stewart’s version of Neil Diamond’s classic Sweet Caroline. Cameras caught him participating in the “Bam Bam Bam” portion of the song.

The Queen’s Surprising Appearances

The 96-year-old monarch has sadly had to pull out of two planned engagements after feeling “unwell” during the Trooping of Color parade. However, that didn’t stop her from stealing the show in a taped skit that opened Saturday night’s performance.

In it, she appeared opposite another popular British icon – Paddington Bear – as the pair shared afternoon tea at the palace. “The opportunity to invite a famous bear to tea was just too much fun to pass up,” a palace spokesman told the Sunday Times.

She also greeted the spectators at the anniversary finale on Sunday.

The Queen shared that she also loves jam sandwiches and always keeps one in her purse. The sweet skit ended with them rapping to Queen’s classic “We Will Rock You” – a beat that flowed seamlessly into a live performance by the British band.

For Sunday’s finale, Her Majesty made a surprise appearance alongside other members of the royal family on the balcony after skipping the pageant parade – although she did appear digitally in hologram form to do so.

The retired rugby player, who is married to Princess Anne’s daughter Zara, had a blast during the celebrations. On Friday, he shared a photo of himself in a morning suit and wearing the same orchid fascinator his wife wore to the Thanksgiving service honoring Queen Elizabeth at St Paul’s Cathedral.

“It’s day 2 of the #platinum anniversary! favorite so far! What color do you think tomorrow will be??? Mike, 43, captioned the cheeky selfie.

The podcaster also posted a photo of Zara and her cousin Princess Eugenie in their colorful church outfits, hilariously comparing them to their “favorite starbursts,” pink and orange.
