The Platinum Jubilee celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne comes to a close Sunday with the Jubilee pageant.
A carnival procession will wind through central London past Buckingham Palace, while street parties and Jubilee lunches are staged throughout the U-K.
Saturday night, about 22,000 people gathered outside the palace and millions watching around the world were dazzled by a televised star-studded concert.
The 96-year-old monarch did not attend in person due to fatigue, but also watched the tribute on T-V from home at Windsor Castle.
The concert opened with the Queen’s surprise appearance in a video she’d recorded with an animated version of Paddington Bear.
