The 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II visited the Gallop Through History show as part of the celebration of the platinum anniversary of her reign.
The special performance was attended by Tom Cruise and Helen Mirren. The event was held at the Exhibition Center near Windsor Castle. The Queen was brought in in her personal car, accompanied by her son, Prince Edward, and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who used a cane to get around. Elizabeth II was dressed in a gray cardigan and a blue dress, which she complemented with black shoes and a handbag.
Throughout the evening, Her Majesty, sitting in the royal box, did not leave a smile, especially she liked the performances of the riders, drummers from Switzerland and the singer Gregory Porter with the song "Revival". The culmination of the performance was the appearance of Lady Louise Windsor, the Queen's 18-year-old granddaughter. She entered driving the late Prince Philip's carriage. The crew was also driven by the girl's mother, Countess Sophie of Wessex.
The show ended with the performance of the legendary Helen Mirren, dressed as Elizabeth I. The actress delivered a solemn speech: “All these years you supported our nation and were its heart and drum rhythm. We give you our sincere love and gratitude.”
A series of celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the Queen's reign will end on 5 June.
