Queen Elizabeth received thanks for her 70 years of activity as Head of State at a service held on Friday, June 3, to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee.
The queen herself was absent from the event due to problems with continuous mobility.
Other high-ranking members of the royal family joined the congregation at St Paul’s Cathedral in London to pay homage to his record.
The four-day holiday began on Thursday, when a radiant Elizabeth greeted the crowd from the balcony of Buckingham Palace after a military parade and a Royal Air Force flight, and later led the lighting of the Platinum Jubilee main lighthouse at her residence in Windsor Castle.
The 96-year-old reluctantly withdrew from Friday’s service after feeling “somewhat uncomfortable” the day before.
The queen watched the service on television at Windsor Castle.
Her son and heir, Prince Charles, 73, represented her.
Much attention was also paid to her nephew, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan.
The couple make their first public appearance together in the UK since retiring from the royal office two years ago.
The couple moved to the United States to lead a more independent life, and have since launched several scathing attacks on Buckingham Palace and the royal family.
They were greeted with applause, but also a few boos from the crowd.
