Queen Elizabeth II smiled and waved to thousands of cheering fans during a brief appearance, with Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis stood alongside her.

Having travelled to Buckingham Palace from Windsor, it was not confirmed as to whether the 96-year-old monarch would make an appearance during today's colourful Platinum pageant. However when The Royal Standard flag appeared towards the end of the celebrations, her appearance became a possibility.

After a few moments of waving, the national anthem was played before the Queen headed back inside Buckingham palace.
