The Queen’s shocking appearance as the Royal Family rocks out with iconic singers at the Jubilee Party

Tens of thousands of revelers packed Buckingham Palace and the surrounding streets to watch the Platinum Jubilee Concert which featured a star-studded musical guest list as the Royals sang their favorite songs and the Queen even made a surprise appearance.

The Queen made a surprise appearance at the Platinum Jubilee Concert ahead of star-studded musical performances to celebrate her 70 years on the throne.

The 96-year-old was forced to cancel a number of engagements this week due to ‘discomfort’ and mobility issues, but was able to pre-record a comedy skit with Paddington Bear which was performed before the concert on Saturday.

Tens of thousands of revelers, including 5,000 coronavirus pandemic frontline workers who have been invited as special guests, burst into cheers as she appeared on big screens around a packed mall and Buckingham Palace.

In the two-minute skit, the iconic children’s character asks if the Queen would like a marmalade sandwich as they enjoyed tea in one of the palace rooms.

“Perhaps you would like a marmalade sandwich? I always save one for emergencies,” Paddington Bear said as he took the popular British tea from his red hat.

The Queen quickly replied, “Me too. I’m saving mine here for later,” as she showed him her marmalade sandwich stuffed into her black handbag.

Cheering quickly interrupts the pair as an aide looks out the window to see the crowds standing outside Buckingham Palace and continues to tell the Queen that the Platinum Jubilee party was about to begin.

“Happy Jubilee, Madam. And thank you for everything,” said Paddington Bear, bowing.

The Royals also made a surprise appearance, seated front row alongside other British dignitaries and special guests as pop group Queen opened the first of a long list of musical performances with We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.

Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton and two of three children, George and Charlotte, were all smiles, spotted laughing, singing along to songs and waving the British flag throughout the event.

Sir Rod Stewart, Craig David, Duran Duran, Alicia Keys, who changed the lyrics of his famous Empire State of Mind lyrics from New York to London, and Andrea Bocelli wowed the late afternoon crowds until nighttime.

UK Eurovision 2022 finalist Sam Ryder sang Space Man in a Union Jack diamond suit just weeks after losing to Ukraine in the final.

George Ezra, Mimi Webb, Celeste and Jax Jones are other new pop stars who graced the three-hour event.

Sir Elton John then performed Your Song – which he recorded in the Red Drawing Room at Windsor Castle – and screened on Buckingham Palace in a Vivid-esque display.

There was also a stunning drone show above the iconic tourist hotspot which saw operators create the British flag, one of its pet corgis, two Buckingham Palace guards, a teapot and teacup and a stamp depicting the Queen.

Prince Charles also shared a heartfelt tribute to his “mum”, the Queen, and remembered his late father, Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021.

“Your Majesty, Mama,” he began.

“The magnitude of tonight’s celebration – and the outpouring of warmth and affection throughout this Jubilee weekend – is our way of saying thank you – from your family, the country, the Commonwealth, in fact from all over the world.

“On behalf of all of us, I wanted to pay tribute to your life of selfless service. Your family now spans four generations.

You are our head of state. And you are also our mother.

“Your ‘strength and perseverance’ is sorely missed tonight, but I’m sure he is here in spirit… My dad would have enjoyed the show and wholeheartedly joined us in celebrating all you continue to do for your country and your people.”

“You have met us and spoken with us. You laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you have been there for us, for these seventy years. You have made a lifelong commitment to service – you continue to deliver .

“That’s why we’re here. That’s what we’re celebrating tonight. These photos on your home are the story of your life – and ours.

So, Your Majesty, that’s why we say thank you to you all.”

Spectators then took to surrounding pubs to continue the celebrations ahead of Sunday’s Big Jubilee Lunch.

Ten million residents are expected to hold street parties across the country ahead of the Pageant which will include a military parade.

The event united the nation with businesses and Britons hosting the event after two difficult years of lockdown.
