And while the day began with cake and tea at street parties, it ended with dancing on the inner-city sidewalks while partiers made the most of the long weekend.

Cheering fans have lined The Mall in London since the early hours to secure a front row seat for Trooping the Color.

Many were snapped at dawn with clinking glasses of Prosecco as they awaited the royals’ arrival.

But as the day progressed — and celebratory champagne flowed — many flocked to the city.

In the early afternoon, groups of friends draped in English flags and dressed up as Beefeaters poured into pubs and bars across Leeds.

Others took a less imperial approach in lifeguard, cheerleader, and even Shrek costumes.

The party started to heat up as evening rolled around – and by midnight groups of friends could be seen sipping beers while enjoying the break from work.

Drunken johns painted the city red, white, and blue during the celebrations.

A staggering 100 million pints are expected to be knocked back over the next four days – a huge boost for the hospitality industry.

And pubs and clubs stay open until 1am for the special long weekend.

Numerous events took place on Thursday to kick off the big weekend.

In London, Trooping the Color was the main attraction. The historic ceremony that marked the start of four days of celebrations.

More than 1,500 soldiers and officers and 250 horses from the Household Division put on an epic show near Buckingham Palace.

The Queen beamed as she waved to royal fans from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

But for many, Prince Louis was the star of the show.


The celebrations are coming like…


As the Red Arrows thundered overhead, he was seen covering his ears and shutting his eyes tight.

Mum Kate was quick to chime in as he made faces at the crowds below – but burst out laughing at his antics.

The Queen later lit the Jubilee Fire at Windsor Castle. She smiled again for Brits despite the sad news that she will not be attending Friday’s church service in St Paul’s.

Officials say she suffered some discomfort during the celebrations and will step down from the celebrations tomorrow.

Brits are sure to keep partying in their honor when another fine day beckons.

Mercury climbed to a balmy 22C in south-east England on Thursday, with temperatures in the high teens and mid-20s elsewhere.

And the warm weather will continue until Friday, when Britons are set to bask in a scorching 26C heat.

However, sunbathers should make the most of it.

The Met Office is considering a possible warning of thunderstorms ahead of Saturday night’s concert, and some forecasters are predicting a deluge for the last day of the weekend.
