The Queen looked utterly jubilant as she crowds on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

After camping outside the royal landmark the night before, excited supporters gathered in huge crowds to greet the 96 year old monarch, who has marked an impressive seventy years on the throne for her big Jubilee weekend.

The Queen’s Angela Kelly outfit comprised of a dusky dove blue Charmelaine wool dress embellished with pearl and diamante trim around the neckline and cascading down the front of the coat.

Her look was completed with a hat in matching dusky dove blue Charmelaine wool with a turned-up brim embellished with a pearl and diamante trim.

The Queen, who was holding a walking stick in light of recent health issues, also wore the Guards’ Badge on her coat.

The monarch added a slick of pink lipstick and accessorised with a triple layer pearl necklace and matching stud earrings.

She stood alongside her cousin Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.

The Queen's Jubilee bash kicked off with the Trooping the Colour on Thursday 2 June – a ceremony performed by regiments of the British Army.

Over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians gathered in the traditional parade, which marked Her Majesty's official birthday each year.

It began at Buckingham Palace before moving The Mall to Horse Guard's Parade, with members of the Royal Family such as Kate Middleton and Prince William joining on horseback and in carriages.

The celebrations come just after a portrait of The Queen was released to mark her historic reign.

She also issued a sweet message along with the portrait, thanking those who are planning to celebrate her 70-year reign and wishing them well.

Her Majesty's message reads: "Thank you to everyone who has been involved in convening communities, families, neighbours and friends to mark my Platinum Jubilee in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth. I know that many happy memories will be created at these festive occasions.

"I continue to be inspired by the goodwill shown to me, and hope that the coming days will provide an opportunity to reflect on all that has been achieved during the last seventy years, as we look to the future with confidence and enthusiasm."

Brits have been given an extra day off to mark the once-in-a-lifetime occasion, with street parties up and down the country set to take place in the coming days.

The Royals also have a busy schedule, and on Friday morning, they'll attend a special service in honour of the Queen at St. Paul's Cathedral.
