Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie led the royal arrivals at the Buckingham Palace Platinum Jubilee party tonight.

The two royal sisters, daughters of Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York, arrived at the star-studded event along with their husbands Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank.

Both couples looked stylish while the royals donned slim dresses. Beatrice, 33, opted for a £795 navy blue corduroy dress with three-quarter sleeves and a fringe from The Vampire’s Wife.

Meanwhile, Eugenie 32 opted for a white dress with a blue, white and red trim, as a nod to the Union Jack colors. Their husbands chose neat suits.

They were among a number of members of the royal family who joined tens of thousands of fans at the star-studded Party at the Palace event tonight.

Tonight’s concert would mark the culmination of the third day of public events to mark the 96-year-old monarch’s record-breaking platinum anniversary with 22,000 people attending in person outside Buckingham Palace.

Royal attendees at Saturday’s star-studded live Jubilee concert, held in front of Buckingham Palace, included the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince Charles and Prince William will take center stage in front of a crowd of 22,000 to pay tribute to the Queen at the star-studded anniversary concert.

The father and son – both future kings – spoke separately in honor of the monarch towards the end of the BBC’s open-air show Party at the Palace, which was held in front of Buckingham Palace.

Clarence House and Kensington Palace announced that both Charles and William would address the crowd at the high-profile event, which falls on the third night of the four-day anniversary festivities.

But Harry and Meghan, whose daughter Lilibet is celebrating her first birthday, were not among those in the royal box.

A spokesperson for the couple, who stepped down as senior royals in 2020, said they spent the day privately.

Others who attended to watch acts including Diana Ross and Alicia Keys included the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children Lady Louise Windsor and Viscount Severn, and the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, as well as Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Some 22,000 people celebrated the historic event outside the royal residence under a cloudy sky in central London – but the quintessential British summer weather didn’t dampen the mood.

Audiences had been eagerly awaiting the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, who will speak at Party at the Palace before stars such as rock band Queen, Diana Ross and George Ezra perform from 8pm.

Aisha Kasim, 37, described attending the event as a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’.

University education supporter Ms Kasim traveled from their home in Aberdeen with her mother Mae Kasim, a retired teacher, to the palace concert.

Aisha, who carried a Scottish flag, told the PA news agency: “I think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I think it’s something we probably won’t see again anytime soon.

‘(The Queen) is our longest serving monarch, she’s done a great job all these years so it’s just great to join the party and make the journey from Scotland.

“We flew all the way across the country for this, so we’re glad we’re here.”

“I’m actually from Nigeria too, I’m Nigerian-Scottish, and Nigeria was a former British colony, so that’s what I grew up with all my life,” she added.

Lucy Morris, 39, and her son Lucas Wainwright, 14, traveled for the concert from Durham in the North East of England.

Both wore Union Jack wigs and face painting, and the teen described his attendance at the event as “the best of my life.”

Lucas, who had also swapped out his prosthetic leg for a ‘Jubilee-style leg’ with Union Jacks for the occasion, told PA news agency: “It’s an honor to be here. Looking forward to seeing the royals come out.

“They are connected to God, they are here to guide us as a country, as a nation. I think that’s very important.’

In tribute to the rock band Queen who will be performing at the concert, Ms Morris said: ‘He hopes to see the Queen, while I hope to see the other Queen.’

Lincolnshire couple Mandy and Malcolm Tipple wore Union Jack flags and matching face paint for the occasion. Mr Tipple, 65, told PA: ‘It’s fantastic. I’m an ex-serviceman and I’ve followed the Queen all my life.’

Ms Tipple, 59, added: ‘I’m just proud to be British so to be here is a dream come true.’ Meanwhile, millions of others are expected to watch the concert from their homes via BBC One.

Queen, whose guitarist Brian May performed on the roof of Buckingham Palace for the last Party at the Palace in 2002, is joined by vocalist Adam Lambert, while Eurovision star Sam Ryder also takes the stage.

Sir Elton John performs in a pre-recorded performance and there were also live performances by Alicia Keys, Nile Rodgers, Andrea Bocelli, Duran Duran, Hans Zimmer, Ella Eyre, Craig David, Mabel and Elbow.

British household names including Sir David Attenborough, David Beckham, Stephen Fry and US Open winner Emma Raducanu are also celebrating the historic occasion.
