Local 10’s Nicole Perez in London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
LONDON – In their first public appearance in London after stepping back from royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reunited with the rest of the royal family on Friday.
Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, followed by Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrived at St Paul’s Cathedral for the Thanksgiving service in honor of the Queen Elizabeth II.
The iconic Grand Paul marked the start of the service.
Inside the church, William, Kate, Charles and Camilla sat on one side while Harry and Meghan sat on the other.
The crowd outside showed up hours before service to preview arrivals.
Overwhelmed with excitement, the crowd of thousands beamed with pride for their queen and their country.
Kevin Moss said: “The Queen has had this incredible impact that has lasted beyond the wars of stable and constant political relations, proud to be our monarch.”
Although she was not present, the service was intended to honor her 70 years on the throne as well as her commitment to public life.
The Queen will not attend the Epsom Derby on Saturday. She will instead send Princess Anne in her place.
The palace said she continued to rest after suffering discomfort while standing for numerous festivities on Thursday.
