Fans were delighted with the surprise royal appearance

While the Platinum Jubilee celebrations are set to continue on Friday with a traditional service of thanksgiving, which will be held by The Archbishop of York at St Paul’s Cathedral, the Queen will be unable to attend.

A statement from the Palace read: "Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow's National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, Her Majesty, with great reluctance, has concluded that she will not attend," adding that she experienced "some discomfort" during Trooping the Colour."
