A colorful competition that reflects the diversity of Great Britain paraded through central London on Sunday (June 5th), the last day of a long holiday weekend honoring the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II on the throne. Amen to that, she was a brilliant little star who made her debut. He was none other than Princess Eugenie’s son, August (1).
An adorable royal boy …
August, the son of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, made his first official public appearance in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee contest. Tod, one year old, was photographed sitting in the royal box with his mother and father on Sunday.
August was wearing a Union Jack flag sweater. She also has red hair from Sarah Ferguson’s grandmother. The boy was delighted to watch the colorful event and looked cheerful.
Princess Eugenie also used Instagram to share snapshots from the royal day. She wrote, “The platinum jubilee contest was simply incredible. To all the people who participated, organized it, made it flawless for all of us who follow, THANK YOU. You made us all so proud. ” She shared some adorable photos of her with her son, August, who was seen enjoying the gala adventure.
In February, 32-year-old Eugenie shared photos with her son of the 1.3 million followers on Instagram. She wrote, “Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little man, whom words cannot express, we are delighted to be able to share these photos with you. ”
Lots of other royal members came out to celebrate this weekend. In addition to August and her family, Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — were photographed enjoying the festivities.
How is Princess Eugenie about the queen?
August is the first child of Princess Eugene and the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. Eugenie’s parents are Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson and Prince Andrew. She married Jack Brooksbank in 2018.
Eugenie’s disappointed father, who was stripped of his military and royal titles in January after settling a civil case for sexual assault, was absent from one of the four-day jubilee celebrations in honor of Queen Elizabeth II.
While the Queen’s affinity for Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, has waned over the years, the monarch has always remained close to her niece. Eugenie, who is director of the Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery in London, has been busy starting her own family in recent years.
Despite her status as a non-working royalty (an allegedly controversial issue within the Windsor walls), she still spends a lot of time with her grandmother. While Eugenie, like her sister, Princess Beatrice, does not receive any public funding, they both regularly attend positions with their grandmother.
Well, the queen absolutely loves Eugenie, despite what Prince Andrew did. In fact, she was the first person to find out about her niece’s engagement to Jack. At the queen’s platinum jubilee, the princess honored Queen Elizabeth by writing:
“Her Majesty the Queen is an incomparable monarch who has reached a record milestone. She happens to be my grandmother too, and I’m a very proud niece. I think about my son Augustus and what I would like for him and what kind of world I would like to grow up in. ”
She added, “And I think of my grandmother and what she meant to many people and to our family in these 70 years. I wish Augie had the patience, the calm, and the kindness, while she could always laugh at herself and keep a gleam in her eyes. ” The queen, who suffers from mobility problems and is missing from the events of June 2, made a surprise appearance at the contest.
A humble statement from the queen …
At the height of her platinum jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II waved tens of thousands of adoring crowds from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, delighting fans who had hoped to see her on the last day of festivities.
With the ringing of the bells at Westminster Abbey, a spectacular 200-horse military parade began the ceremony as they marched across the mall to Buckingham Palace. They flanked the gilded gold wagon, a horse-drawn carriage that carried the queen to her coronation 69 years ago.
Millions of people also held jubilee parties and street lunches in UK towns and cities on the last day of the four-day holiday weekend. The queen did not participate in the competition, but a virtual version of her, taken from an archive video from her 1953 coronation, was displayed in the coach’s windows.
The 260-year-old Gold State coach, who wore the Queen to her coronation in 1953, rode the streets, with the Queen appearing as a hologram inside. After the contest, the queen issued a humble statement in which she said that she was “humiliated and deeply moved” by the platinum jubilee celebrations organized in Great Britain.
IIn a “thank you” letter after a competition in London, she said she remained committed to serving as a monarch with the support of her family. The statement sounds like below:
“When it comes to marking 70 years as your queen, there is no guide. It really is a premiere. But I was humbled and deeply moved by the fact that so many people took to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee.
“Although I may not have personally attended every event, my heart was with you all; and I remain determined to serve you as best I can, supported by my family.
I have been inspired by the kindness, joy, and kindness that has been so evident in recent days, and I hope that this renewed sense of community will be felt for many years to come.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your good wishes and for the role you all played in these happy holidays. ”
As the Queen greeted the crowd from a balcony at Buckingham Palace, the monarch was joined by her eldest son, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton and their three children.
