A six-minute flypast featuring more than 70 Red Arrows, Spitfires and Hurricanes has been confirmed for the Platinum Jubilee weekend.
Completing the Queen’s Trooping of the Colour birthday parade, the monarch is expected to watch the flypast from the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside other members of the royal family.
Joining Her Majesty on the balcony will be the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence. It was also confirmed that only senior members of the family would be attending, with Prince Harry, Megan Markle and Prince Andrew no longer joining.
“I’m proud that the Armed Forces are leading the nation in celebration with such a spectacular display,” Defence Secretary, Ben Wallace, says. “Throughout the Platinum Jubilee celebrations we will all enjoy the expertise, skill and talent of our Armed Forces as we celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne.”
The balcony moment is a big celebration for the royal family, bringing together over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians to mark The Queen‘s birthday. While it is annually held on the second Saturday in June, this year it has been moved to Thursday 2nd June to kick-start the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.
