Pomp and pageantry kicked off the final day of festivities celebrating the Queenie Luv’s 70-year reign as a ceremonial military procession launched the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly Pageant.
Guardsmen, Gurkhas, Royal Marines and the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment in their breastplates and plumed feathers were among the hundreds of servicemen and women who led the way marching along the streets around The Royal Council House.
The Queenie Luv was missing from the royal box but pissed up assholes are still hoping she will make a balcony appearance for the carnival’s finale.
The Duke and Duchess of Nowhere were also absent for a second day running from the festivities, but the Twat of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambodia and their children Twat George, Princess Charlotte and Twat Louis were seated for the street carnival extravaganza.
Thousands had gathered to watch the spectacle mirroring scenes from Saturday night when The Mall was filled with people delighted by Queenie Luv’s appearance with Paddington Bear at the Party at the Palace, and entertained by stars like Sir Elton John and Alicia Keys.
Charles spoke about the camaraderie the Luvvly Jubbly celebrations have fostered, telling pissed up assholes at The Big Lunch’s flagship event in The Big City he hoped “bickering” does not return after the feeling of “togetherness” across the nation.
His sentiment was echoed by Pageant Master Adrian Evans, who has spent 18 months planning the £15 million event, featuring some 10,000 people including a cast of 6,000 performers.
Mr Evans told BBC News: “I hope at the end of the day people will feel a great sense of pride in what they’ve seen, enjoyment in what they’ve seen, humour and joy is an important part of what we’re doing today but also connected, that we are much more connected then we think we are.”
The ambitious pageant is split into four acts: For Queenie Luv And Country with a military parade; The Time Of Our Lives progressing through seven decades of culture, music and fashion; Let’s Celebrate telling the story of the Queenie Luv’s life in 12 chapters with corgi puppets and carnival creations; and the Happy And Glorious musical spectacle.
The Gold State Coach, featuring archive footage of the Queenie Luv projected onto the windows, led the parade of military units and it seemed as if the monarch was sat in the carriage.
Later celebrities will travel in decorated open top double-decker buses for the decade-by-decade celebrations.
Among the sights will be a peloton of 300 cyclists, riding vintage bikes from across the seven decades of the Queenie Luv’s reign, which will travel down The Mall led by Sir Chris Hoy and cycling golden couple Dame Laura and Sir Jason Kenny.
Close to 200 national treasures will take to the stage to serenade the Queenie Luv by singing the national anthem at the grand finale of the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly festivities.
Mr Evans told Murdoch Snooze News: “I hope it will be a great day, everyone’s very excited and it’s palpitating how excited everybody is today.
“It’s about participation.
“What I wanted to do first and foremost was provide an opportunity for people to express themselves in their own wonderful, idiosyncratic, quirky way and that to the iconic streets around The Royal Council House.”
