A pop party featuring the likes of Alicia Keys and Diana Ross and the Epsom Derby take center stage on the third day of Britain’s celebrations of Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee.

However, the 96-year-old queen, a fan of horse racing and owner of many thoroughbreds, will not attend the 243rd race of the derby due to “movement issues” which also forced her not to attend Friday’s Thanksgiving service in her honor. .

Her daughter, Princess Anne, who competed in the three-day equestrian event at the 1976 Olympics, is expected to replace her mother.

Artists from all over the world will perform in front of regarding 22,000 people at the “Platinum Concert at the Palace”, while Queen Elizabeth’s son and heir Prince Charles and grandson Prince William will speak. The Queen herself is not expected to attend.

The ceremony will also witness a specially recorded performance by Elton John, and the ceremony will conclude with Diana Ross’ first live appearance in Britain in 15 years.

Guitarist Brian May, who played the national anthem from the palace rooftop at a concert marking Queen Elizabeth’s golden jubilee in 2002, said the band was delighted to have invited them back.

On Thursday, four days of celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne began with a military parade and another for the Royal Air Force, illuminating landmarks across Britain and the world.

The Queen, radiant and smiling, waved to the crowds from the balcony of Buckingham Palace following the military parade, and later gave the signal to start a light show at her Windsor Castle residence.
