In the photos: Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her platinum anniversary


Britain is overwhelmed with pomp and splendor in connection with the Platinum Jubilee, the four-day celebration of seven decades on Queen Elizabeth’s throne, with street festivals, dinners and even occasionally seeing the Queen herself.

The festivities began on Thursday with a birthday parade, when the Queen was joined at Buckingham Palace by members of the royal family who took part on horseback and in carriages. The parade, known as Trooping the Color, closed with a Royal Air Force overpass.
