Queen Elizabeth marks 70 years on the throne



Queen Elizabeth says she is “inspired” by the goodwill of the nation as celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee begin

In a Jubilee message, Her Majesty thanked the public for organising events and says “many happy memories” will be made across the U.K.

Millions are gearing up for street parties to celebrate the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.

The U.K. will have a four-day bank holiday weekend to mark the special occasion.

Millions will flood the streets of London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

There are a series of official events planned, where celebrities and supporters will flood the streets of London.

London will host the “Trooping the Colour” parade, while a Jubilee Pageant will be held through the streets on Sunday.

It’s believed Ed Sheeran will sing the national anthem with a choir made up of national treasures outside Buckingham Palace.

Prince Harry arrives for Platinum Jubilee celebrations

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle have arrived for celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are accompanied by their two children, Archie and Lilibet.

It is expected Queen Elizabeth will meet Lilibet for the very first time.

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan say they are excited and honoured to attend the special occasion.

The pair will likely take a back seat in this weekend’s public affairs and will not be joining the rest of the royal family on the balcony for the official public appearance and photo.

Celebrating Queen Elizabeth

The Palace has released a new photo of 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth, taken in her private apartment at Windsor Castle.

The Monarch is wearing a pale blue Angela Kelly coat and dress, which is embellished with pearls and diamantes.

More than 3,000 beacons will be lit across the U.K. and Commonwealth in tribute to the Queen across the weekend.

Notable companies to consider for exposure include BlueScope and James Hardie Industries for building materials, Macquarie Technology and Goodman Group for data centres, and Worley, AGL Energy, and Origin Energy for electricity grid upgrades and green infrastructure.

However, Eisman cautions investors to approach utility investments carefully, considering their capital expenditure budgets in renewable energy and grid upgrades.
