Platinum Jubilee, Day 2! After the Trooping the Color military parade, the overflight over Buckingham Palace or the lighting of a 21-meter-tall tree-shaped sculpture from Windsor Castle, the festivities continue this Friday, June 3rd. An appointment was made in the morning at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.
After the gradual arrival of several members of the crown – including Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in a mixed atmosphere at the level of the crowd – we could see the arrival prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. The couple made their appearance at the stunning sound of the Great Paul Bell, which is very rare for this Thanksgiving Mass. This bell from 1882 is the largest church bell in the country. Its mechanism broke in the 1970s but was repaired last year. She has only resonated eight times since. An event that the queen Elizabeth II missing due to “discomfort” in his health felt the day before. But no matter what, the 70th anniversary of his reign was well represented by his clan.
Once again, the monarch was able to count on the unwavering commitment of Kate Middleton, a model figure in the royal family. The Duchess of Cambridge had opted for a chic but sober pale yellow ensemble by Emilia Wickstead. All accessorized by a large XXL hat says fascinating forming a disc on top and showing flowery patterns below from Philip Treacy. With her husband William, she was hailed by the bystanders and then seen exchanging a few words with religious representatives before walking up the steps of the cathedral, offering a few gestures to the audience. It should be noted that the couple had traveled without their three children: George (8 years old), Charlotte (7 years old) and Louis (4 years old); the latter was turbulent the day before, flying the star to the queen !
It remained to be seen if William and Harry would take advantage of this Mass to seal their reunion when their relationship has been very strained for months …
