Across the country, Brits have been toasting to Her Majesty as he celebrates 70 years on the throne this weekend.

The streets are filled with red, white and blue as people eat lots of cake and party throughout the day.

Many revelers were blessed with sunny weather as they turned out in Union Jack-patterned costumes and suits to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

One reveler rocked a purple dress, a pair of black heels, a curly wig – and, of course, a queen’s mask.

Outfitted with a handbag carrying a toy corgi, he was pictured waving the royal hand before cutting a cake for the neighbours.

More than 16,000 street parties are expected to be held over the four-day bank holiday weekend, with councils reporting a record number of road closures.

Thousands are likely to keep the party going into the wee hours, hitting the pubs and clubs that stay open until at least 1am over the long weekend.

Around 100 million pints are expected to be drunk over the long weekend, giving the hospitality industry a huge boost.
