LONDON (AP) – Four days of celebrations in honor of the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II on the throne began with the official celebrations of the Platinum Jubilee.

First there was the Trooping the Color ceremony with the horses. The Queen then joined her family on Thursday on the balcony of Buckingham Palace when 70 planes flew overhead.

The 96-year-old Elizabeth is the monarch of Britain with the longest reign and the first to serve for seven decades. Thousands of street parties are planned across the country during the four-day holiday weekend.
