Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee Concert is over and if you missed it, well, all I can say is that you missed one heck of a fantastic event. Performers included legendary singers Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John and many more.
At the end of the concert Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall took to the stage. Whilst there the Prince of Wales gave a moving speech in tribute to his “mummy” as well as to His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh stating:
The only sad thing about this evening is that my father couldn’t be here with us because unfortunately he has taken unwell, but if we shout loud enough he might just hear us in hospital.
Soon, there was an enormous applause and cheers for the super awesome duke. After thanking his mummy for “…inspiring us with your selfless duty and service and for making us proud to be British…” Her Majesty lit the National Beacon located on the Mall. Afterward there was a fantastic fireworks show that delighted everyone!
