Platinum Jubilee: Prince Charles’ emotional tribute to Queen Elizabeth, his “mummy”

Prince Charles opened his heart to the world to pay an emotional tribute to the Queen.

Prince Charles paid tribute to “Your Majesty, Mom” ​​during the stellar Party at The Palace concert.

The Prince of Wales poured out his heart, welcoming the Queen for being with the British “in our difficult times”. Sun reported.

Millions of viewers watching from home were deeply moved when he said, “You have met with us and talked to us.

“You laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you were with us.”

Directly addressing the monarch, “Your Majesty, Mommy,” he said, “The scale of the celebration of this evening – and the outpouring of warmth and love for this entire anniversary weekend – is our way of saying thank you – from your family, country, Commonwealth, in fact the whole world .

“On behalf of all of us, I wanted to pay tribute to your selfless service throughout your life.

“Now your family has four generations. You are our head of state. And you are also our mother.”

And he said the Queen’s “strength and resilience” — her late husband Philip, who died last year — is “much missed.”

“I’m sure he’s here in spirit,” Charles said.

“My dad would love the show and wholeheartedly join us to celebrate all you continue to do for your country and your people.”

He addressed the crowd minutes after his son, the Duke of Cambridge, took the stage to speak about the Queen’s service.

William joked that the hall “turned into an IMAX screen” as artists including Queen and Rod Stewart entertained the audience.

And he used the speech to talk about the environment, talking about his pride in his father Charles and grandfather Philip for their work.

“Although no grandmother thanks them for talking about their age, my own grandmother has been living for almost a century,” he said.

“During this time, humanity has benefited from unimaginable technological developments and scientific breakthroughs.”

“And while these breakthroughs have increased our awareness of the impact humans have on our world, our planet has become more fragile.

“Today, in 2022, as the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee, the urgent need to protect and restore our planet has never been greater.”

However, he said that he was “an optimist” and said that the jubilee brought great “joy” to the British.

William was accompanied to the concert by his wife Kate, who shone in white, and the couple’s older children, Charlotte and George.

The family was seen laughing and joking together as they took their seats at the glittering event at Buckingham Palace.

Hundreds of thousands of people lined the mall to celebrate on Saturday night.

Applause erupted when the Cambridges arrived hours after the royal visit to Wales with their two older children.

William put on a blue suit. At the party, George wore an elegant navy blue dress while Charlotte wore a pink dress and cardigan.

The Queen was not present at the celebration – although she recorded a hilarious clip with Paddington Bear, which was shown before the performances.

In the skit, the couple – both much-loved British establishments – met over a chaotic cream tea.

Her Majesty said she shares Paddington’s love of marmalade sandwiches and keeps a spare in her signature handbag for emergencies.

On Saturday night, the Queen watched performances by world-famous artists, including Sir Elton John and Diana Ross, from the comfort of her home.

But she was well represented by her family, many of whom seemed to be in high spirits as they took their seats.

Princess Charlotte, who stole the show on Saturday by pretending to conduct an orchestra during her visit to Wales, was seen waving the Union Flag.

Prince George leaned over to speak to his father and the couple were seen laughing together as the music started.

The little ones looked sleepy as the evening drew to a close and Charlotte was pictured yawning.

Kate was seen joking around with Mike and Zara Tindall when the show started.

She later appeared to dance a bit in her seat as Adam Lambert and Queen played “We Will Rock You”.

During the concert, famous faces paid their respects in pre-recorded videos. Daniel Craig, who performed a skit with the Queen ahead of the London 2012 Olympics, and former US First Lady Michelle Obama were among those who performed.

The monarch chose not to attend after pulling out of the Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral and the Epsom Derby when she felt some discomfort on Thursday.

She said she decided to take a break from activities “with great reluctance.”

The Queen’s granddaughter Zara previously stated that Her Majesty is enjoying the festivities at home in her “comfortable attire”.

Harry and Meghan also did not attend the party.

The couple stayed at Frogmore Cottage after spending the day celebrating daughter Lilibet’s first birthday privately.

Roman Kemp, DJ and son of Spandau Ballet favorite Martin Kemp, along with fellow DJ and host Clara Ampho, introduced the celebration.

Notable performers included the likes of Rod Stewart, Craig David, George Ezra, Alicia Keys and Diversity. They were accompanied by a full live orchestra. The grand show ended at 22:30.

It was the penultimate major anniversary event and the Platinum Anniversary Pageant was scheduled to take place tomorrow.

During the 2012 anniversary of Madness, Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue performed in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
