Platinum Jubilee: Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne

Queen Elizabeth has celebrated her Platinum Jubilee, meeting in a face to face event in the UK at her Sandringham estate to mark 70 years on the throne

Charles led the flowing tributes, noting his mother’s “remarkable achievement” of seven decades at the head of the Commonwealth.

The 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying she looks forward to the year of her Platinum Jubilee with optimism.

In her message, Elizabeth the Second officially grants her permission for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort when Charles becomes King.

“It is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service,”

She says.

Former BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt told the Press Association says Queen Elizabeth is future-proofing an institution she’s served for 70 years.

“This is the most extraordinary message. The Queen is ensuring the transition, when it comes, to her son as King is as seamless and trouble-free as possible,’’

he says.

The Queen is the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, but even after 70 years on the throne, there is no sign she will be stepping aside.

Her reign began when she was just 25 years old in 1952, when her father George passed away.

Now 95, the monarch says she is eternally grateful for the loyalty and affection the world has given her.

Jerry Harris from hit Netflix show, ‘Cheer’, has pleaded guilty to to the crimes of coercing teenage boys to send him obscene photos and videos.

In the Federal Court in Chicago, prosecutors say the 22-year-old’s celebrity status enabled him to “persuade and entice” his young victims to engage in sexual conduct.

The cheer star was arrested in 2020 for production of child pornography and has since been in custody in Chicago for almost two years while awaiting trial and sentencing.

Prosecutors allege at the time of his arrest, Harris solicited sex from minors at cheerleading competitions.

He also allegedly solicited photos and videos from two 14-year-old brothers, after a complaint was filed.

A few months after his 2020 arrest, Harris was indicted on more charges in Florida and Texas alleging misconduct.

Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography and travelling with the intention to engage in illegal sexual conduct.
