The Queen met those involved in the Grenfell Tower fire including firefighters

While the royal children didn't participate in the parade ride down The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, they were front and centre to watch the RAF planes fly past. Charlotte looked darling twinning with mom Kate in a bubble gum pink dress while George looked dashing in his tiny suspenders. Prince William's attire matched his son's red braces, and was awfully similar to that of his wedding day.

But they're cute! As the Queen of England continues celebrations of her accession to the throne, Kate Middleton's children, George and Charlotte, have stolen her ...

George and Charlotte - the youngest royals - joined the royal family later that day and stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

One of the most spectacular royal events of the year marked Queen Elizabeth's 91st birthday.

Forecasters from the Met Office said a sunny day was expected for most of the United Kingdom today but cloudier parts of north-western Britain, where it has been raining this morning, will mean temperatures there will only reach 14C.

In the Queen's birthday message she said it had been "difficult to escape a very sombre mood" in the country which was "united in sadness" following the tragedies in London and Manchester.

The Buckingham Palace statement issued by Queen Elizabeth said: "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies. Prince Philip and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of firefighters and other emergency services officers who put their own lives at risk to save others", the statement read. The sovereign's actual birthday falls on April 21. In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies.

The Queen said the country has been "resolute in the face of adversity" following the tragic fire at a block of flats in London earlier this week and three terrorist attacks since March.
