The Queen’s grandchildren take to social media to share Platinum Jubilee experiences


The Queen’s grandchildren have taken to social media to share their experiences at the events marking their grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee.

Princess Eugenie watched the flypast from St. James’s Palace with her husband Jack Brooksbank and son August. She shared some photos of the trio with the caption “The most perfect day to celebrate 70 years.”

In her Instagram Stories, Eugenie promised to share any Platinum Jubilee party photos she was tagged in and has been consistently adding to the platform ever since Thursday.

Meanwhile Mike Tindall shared a snap of himself and his wife Zara on their way to Trooping and to celebrate “one of the greatest woman [sic] on this planet,” captioning the photo “Great start to the day, thanks to the @thestaffordlondon for having the family. Also great work by @westcontempeditions raising money for @gosh.charity Really looking forward to the next four days and celebrating one of the greatest woman on this planet.”

In his Instagram Stories, Mike shared a cheeky photo of himself wearing Zara’s red hat after the ceremony was over, captioning it “Personal fav of mine! I deffo need to wear more hats!”

On Friday morning before the Service of Thanksgiving, Mike shared a new video of The Queen, one of a face morphing time-lapse of his grandmother-in-law as a toddler all the way to present day with the caption, “Day 2 of celebrating a fantastic lady!”

In his Instagram Stories, he shared a picture of the couple, noting that Zara’s pink dress and hat meant “Day 2 is all about pink.”

Eugenie and Mike are the only two active social media users out of The Queen’s non-working family. Princess Beatrice has an official Twitter account, but as of Friday morning, has not used it since announcing the name of her daughter Sienna in October 2021.
