The Queen made a very brief, but much-awaited appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the end of Sunday's Pageant, and she could not have looked more delighted to see the crowds at the Mall, all gathered to celebrate her 70 years on the throne.

Her Majesty spent just three minutes on the balcony, waving to the crowds, but following the national anthem, and just seconds before she returned into the palace, she asked Prince William where the Royal Box was located.

The Queen can be seen asking William: "Where were you sitting?" to which the Duke replies, whilst pointing to the royal box: "Over there, in the Royal Box."

Prince William told the Queen where the Royal Box was located

Following William's indications, the Queen went on to wave in the Royal Box's direction, where her daughter Princess Anne, granddaughters Zara Tindall, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie were sitting alongside their spouses and children, with the exception of baby Sienna, who was absent from the festivities.

The Queen seemed delighted as she spotted her family

The Queen's attendance on day four of the Platinum Jubilee was not confirmed beforehand. The first time crowds were given a hint that the monarch would be making an appearance was when the royal standard was raised at 4.30pm to express that the Queen was in residence at Buckingham Palace. Fans flocked towards the palace from The Mall to be ready for Her Majesty.
