Queen Elizabeth news – Monarch prepares for Platinum Jubilee tomorrow after hosting a special Sandringham reception


THE QUEEN cracked jokes at a tea party today as she met with members of the Women’s Institute and local Norfolk charities on the eve of her Accession.

Her Majesty, 95, was on “sparkling” form and showed she’s still the royal icing on the cake

Her Majesty will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of her accession tomorrow.

This is the first time that the Monarch will be celebrating the day without Prince Philip. He was by her side for 73 years.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “The Queen is a person of deep religious faith.

“She took an oath when she was 21 in 1947 to serve her whole life and she meant every word of it.”

The monarch was also filmed in Windsor Castle’s Oak Room viewing homemade cards and artwork to Queen Victoria for her Golden Jubilee in 1887.

The footage was taken ahead of the Queen’s Accession Day today, as Platinum Jubilee cards decorate the room, including one featuring a picture of her as a young woman surrounded by flowers with the words “70 Glorious Years”.
