London [UK]June 6 (ANI/Xinhua): Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest monarch of the United Kingdom (UK), vowed on Sunday to continue serving the people after celebrations of her 70-year reign.
“When it comes to how to mark 70 years as Queen, there is no guide to follow… But I was touched and deeply touched that so many people took to the streets to celebrate my platinum jubilee,” the 96-year-old monarch said in a statement, capping the four-day nationwide celebrations.
Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of London for celebrations including military parades, concerts and cultural performances.

The Queen briefly appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, her royal residence in central London, on Sunday afternoon at the end of a day-long show featuring busking, music and the carnival in central London.
She missed a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday and a star-studded concert and light show outside Buckingham Palace on Saturday due to her mobility issue after appearing on the palace balcony for Trooping the Color Thursday.
“While I may not have attended all of the events in person, my heart is with you all and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family,” the Queen said. (ANI/Xinhua)
