Lots of celebrations here in the UK. Many folk travelled big distances to be here and join in the celebrations, USA, Canada and even Australia. We're all flying our flags with pride.🇬🇧

Plenty of street parties in Inner London with roads blocked off and a concert is due to start in front of Buckingham Palace to be opened by Queen rock group with Brian May playing on top of the Palace.

All paid for by the taxpayer. Meanwhile our NHS struggles to get the funding it needs to retain staff and save lives.

Sorry to instantly derail towards politics, but that's my only thought on it.

I wish the royals no harm, but firmly believe they need to be made redundant.

It was a fantastic spectacle, no one does pomp & ceremony like us Brits.

The Royals bring so much to this country & it’d be a worse place with out them.
Happy Anniversary ma’am
God save the Queen

Hmm, I think you'll find that the Royals generate around 1.9 billion a year for the UK, not a bad return on our 86 million

Long live the Queen (I am a fan).

Hope that Prince Harry will soon be back with the Royal family.

Bullshit. The taxpayers fund the NHS at a "rising" rate of 126billion a year. The NHS doesn't need more money, it needs a ground up overhaul.
