Prince Charles and Prince William will address a special concert tonight as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in honor of the Queen.
The future kings will pay their tribute towards the end of the open-air show, which takes place outside Buckingham Palace tonight and will be shown on the BBC.
Celebrities attending include Diana Ross, Queen + Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Hans Zimmer, George Ezra and Sam Ryder, Eurovision 2022 runner-up – with a live crowd of 22,000 people and a television audience in the millions.
The Queen herself is not expected to attend the Platinum Party at the Palace concert but will confirm on the day if she will be making a public appearance.
Yesterday she said she was unable to attend the Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral as she felt a certain uneasiness on the first day of celebrations on Thursday as she waved to the crowds from the balcony of Buckingham Palace and led the beaconing ceremony.
The Duchess of Cambridge later said the Queen enjoyed Thursday’s celebrations but the day had been “very busy”.
The keen horse racing fan will not be attending today’s Epsom Derby Day either, but will be watching it on TV from Windsor.
The anniversary celebrations at the course will continue as planned, with the Princess Royal expected to represent her mother.
The track intends to honor the monarch with 40 jockeys who have ridden for her (she owns and breeds racehorses) and wear royal silks to form an honor guard while some of her former racehorses will parade.
Today is also the first birthday of Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet, who has traveled with the Sussexes and older brother Archie for her first visit to the UK.
She and Archie have not yet been seen publicly during the visit, although their parents were spotted at the Trooping the Color ceremony on Thursday and attending St Paul’s church service.
The Party at the Palace takes place on three stages in front of the Queen’s London residence.
Soul legend Diana Ross will close out the two-and-a-half-hour show with her first live performance in the UK in 15 years.
Stars including Sir David Attenborough, Emma Raducanu, David Beckham and Stephen Fry will also be featured, as well as a specially recorded performance by Sir Elton John.
The evening will highlight global issues that arose or developed during the Queen’s reign, including British and Commonwealth contributions in fashion, sport, the environment and popular music.
