Royals watch Jubilee pageant, street parties held across UK

London, Jun 5 (EFE).- Members of the United Kingdom’s royal family on Sunday watched the Platinum Jubilee pageant in central London as Brits up and down the country held street parties to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne.

The parade down The Mall, which leads to Buckingham Palace, featured the original golden stage coach used to transport Elizabeth to her coronation in 1953.

The queen was not present at the pageant and was represented instead by her son and heir to the throne Prince Charles, who was joined by his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince William, the second in line to the throne, was also in attendance with his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The British prime minister Boris Johnson and the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan also watched on from the official box.

Sunday marked the last of a four-day Platinum Jubilee bank holiday in the UK, which included a star-studded concert on Saturday evening. EFE
