How will the royals be celebrating the Platinum Jubliee?

A handful of those 7,000 events are part of Queen Elizabeth’s official celebration.

On Thursday, the Platinum Jubilee kicked off with Trooping the Colour,

a big parade that featured lots of military pageantry and appearances

by members of the royal family including Prince William, Kate Middleton

and the queen herself. The event culminated in the royals waving from the

balcony of Buckingham Palace and watching a military flyby.

On Friday, the royals will celebrate

St. Paul’s Cathedral will hold a service of thanksgiving in honor of her 70-year reign.

Despite its name, we will not get to watch the queen house some stuffing or fight with Prince George over a turkey wishbone.
