Day 3 of the Queen Jubilee Celebrations: See What Happens Today


About 22,000 people are expected to attend an open-air concert outside Buckingham Palace featuring Diana Ross, the Italian opera star Andrea Bocelli and the James Bond composer Hans Zimmer. Millions more will be watching from home.

Bonnie Tyler, Alicia Keys, and the Eurovision 2022 runner-up Sam Ryder will also perform at the two-and-a-half hour event called Platinum Party at the Palace, and there will be a specially recorded appearance from Elton John. The Prince of Wales and his eldest son, Prince William, will pay tribute to the Queen, who is not expected to attend in person but will watch on television from Windsor Castle.

The Queen made two public appearances to huge crowds from the Buckingham Palace balcony on Thursday and attended a beacon-lighting ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Her no-show at Epsom is only the fourth time the keen horse-racing fan, rider and breeder has missed the derby since 1952. Covid restrictions prevented her from attending in 2020.
