Queen’s Anniversary Party Draws Huge Crowds, Celebrities and Special Guests

Huge crowds gathered for a star-studded anniversary party at the palace, which also featured two special guests and a surprise appearance from the queen.

When the Cambridges arrived a few hours after the royal visit to Wales with their two older children, there was loud applause.

Kate looked stunning in white, while William wore a blue suit. George was in smart navy blue, while little Charlotte was wearing 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 revealed that she shares Paddington’s love of marmalade sandwiches and keeps a spare in her signature handbag for emergencies.

She 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 graced the show earlier when she pretended to conduct an orchestra during her visit to Wales, was seen waving the Union Jack flag.

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

Kate was also seen joking around with Mike and Zara Tindall. The couple leaned over to speak to the Duchess as she laughed.

Kate later seemed to dance a bit in her seat as Adam Lambert and Queen played we will Rock You.

William and Charles took center stage in front of a crowd of 22,000 and the heirs were to give separate speeches in honor of Her Majesty.

Other notable 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 First Lady Michelle Obama were among those who performed.

The monarch chose not to attend after she pulled 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.”

Granddaughter Zara previously said that Her Majesty is enjoying the celebration at home in her “comfortable clothes”.

Harry and Meghan were also not in the audience.
