Queen Elizabeth II Celebrate Platinum Jubilee With Prince William, Duchess Kate’s Children
Queen Elizabeth II is “exhilarated” as she marks her 70th year on the throne, royal expert, Stewart Pearce reveals to Us Weekly.
The monarch, 95, succeeded to the British crown on February 6, 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI. Seventy years later, Elizabeth had a bittersweet celebration of her Platinum Jubilee on Sunday, February 6, per Pearce.
“This is an unusual time for her because she is about to remember and commemorate 70 years of her father’s departure. And she had a very, very close connection, a very close relationship with her father,” the Diana the Voice of Change author explains, noting that the queen will take in the occasion at Sandringham surrounded by loved ones. “It will be a time of great memory for her.”
Her majesty is “gathered by the younger members of the family, particularly of course, [Duchess] Kate and [Prince] William‘s children, whom she loves.”
