AS we mark The Queen’s platinum jubilee, world leaders, celebrities and fans of the 96-year-old have been paying their respects on social media.

Well-wishers from all over the world have taken to social media on Thursday, June 2 to pay tribute to The Queen as she celebrates her platinum jubilee.

Outspoken TV host Piers Morgan said on Twitter: “Happy Platinum Jubilee, Your Majesty! I’m honoured to remain your humble & (occasionally) obedient servant. What a reign, what a magnificent lady.”

President of France left a video message for her Majesty via Twitter.

Benedict Rogers wrote: “And so we begin four days of celebration of and tribute to the longest serving monarch ever, and the greatest, most remarkable, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Thank you, Your Majesty, for your incredible example of devoted public service Happy Platinum Jubilee.”

Philip Ingram MBE said: “26 years ago today I was honoured and privileged to be in Her Majesty’s Birthday Honours list and be awarded the MBE – many congratulations to all those on today’s list and a very happy birthday Your Majesty, ma’am.”

On June 2, 1953, the world stopped to watch the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen. She said: “Throughout all my life and with all my heart I shall strive to be worthy of your trust.”

In a tweet from the Royal Family, they announced they would be looking “back on Her Majesty’s life of service from her time as a young Princess supporting the war effort to her extraordinary commitment to her role as Monarch.”

British ex-pats in Spain are also joining in the celebration, with British bars in the Alicante town of Gran Alacant preparing for a weekend of fun and festivities.
