Queen Elizabeth II on June 5 brought the curtain down on her historic Platinum Jubilee celebrations, making another public appearance on the last of four days of festivities and vowing to maintain her record-breaking reign.

The 96-year-old monarch, who has been troubled by mobility problems, appeared for the first time in person since June 2 on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the Trooping the Color military parade.

She had pulled out of a thanksgiving church service June 3, as well as the Epsom Derby horse race and a star-studded concert June 4.

Huge crowds stretching hundreds of meters down the Mall outside the palace cheered as she reemerged onto the balcony briefly.

It followed a public parade reflecting changes in music, dance, fashion, culture and society since she came to the throne in 1952.

In a statement issued shortly after her appearance, Elizabeth said she had been “humbled  and deeply touched” by the turnout for her Platinum Jubilee celebrations and “inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship that has been so evident in recent days.”

She added: “While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all, and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.” (AFP-Jiji)
