The annual event is aimed at bringing communities together, and more than 85,000 people have signed up to host Big Jubilee Lunches in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, with events including everything from small garden barbecues to world record attempts for the longest street party.

Prince Charles and Camilla joined members of the local community, 70 volunteers who have been recognised as Platinum Champions through the Royal Voluntary Service's Platinum Champions Awards and charity representatives at the cricket ground, just hours after their big night at the Platinum Party at the Palace, where the Prince of Wales gave a speech about his mother, the Queen.

Meanwhile, the Earl and Countess of Wessex are attended a Big Jubilee Lunch in Windsor, not far from their family home, Bagshot Park. The Long Walk was reinvented to create "the Long Table" in celebration of the Jubilee, and Prince Edward and Sophie are set to meet groups of street performers along with members of the local community.

The royals are later expected to attend the Platinum Jubilee pageant at Buckingham Palace, which features a three-kilometre parade led by the Gold State Coach that carried the Queen to and from her coronation in 1953.

Artists including Ed Sheeran and Sir Cliff Richard are set to perform at the event, which is the culmination of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
