Queen to Make Rare Address on Final Day of Jubilee
Queen Elizabeth II will make a rare address to the nation at the conclusion of festivities marking her 60 years on the throne.
Buckingham Palace said Tuesday that the broadcast will be transmitted at 1700 GMT on Tuesday in Britain and the Commonwealth. It will also be available on the Royal Channel on YouTube. The queen recorded the two-minute message on Monday before the
evening's concert outside the palace.
The Jubilee celebrations will end with a service of thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral and a carriage procession back to Buckingham Palace.
The Queen's husband, Prince Philip, who was hospitalized Monday for treatment of a bladder infection, will miss the final day's events.
Meantime, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper continues celebrating with the Brits in London. Harper will meet British P-M David Cameron for a private dinner, but before that, he'll be announcing the table tennis players who will represent Canada at the coming London Olympic Games.
Monday night, Harper attended a concert at Buckingham Palace, where Elton John, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder performed.
