Prince Michael of Kent and his wife were spotted this afternoon at the massive picnic party in the park in Windsor to celebrate the Queen’s jubilee.
The Queen’s cousin and his wife Princess Michael of Kent were at another anniversary celebration today after attending Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London yesterday.
Both were seen speaking to members of the public on the Windsor property as they attended the Party in the Park, on the third night of the four-day anniversary festivities.
The party today had classic cars and entertainment, all in the beautiful setting of the Long Walk.
The Royal Family has been seen across the UK to celebrate the 70th year of her reign as the Queen.

Prince Philip’s beloved taxi, which he used to travel incognito through London, took center stage at a classic car rally on Windsor’s Long Walk as part of the Queen’s platinum anniversary celebrations.
The green, gas-powered Metrocab was parked just outside the gates of Windsor Castle as thousands braved the unpredictable weather to take part in the four-day festivities.
They admired Prince Philip’s immaculately maintained cabin and dozens of other vehicles representing the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
Philip took delivery of the Metrocab in 1999 and used the vehicle on assignments in London, allowing him to travel around the city undetected.
The green Balmoral vehicle still bears the same number plate as when Prince Philip used it, OXT 3. It is owned by Sandringham Estate.
Prince Philip drove his taxi regularly for over 20 years and particularly enjoyed the fact that he could avoid London traffic as it could use bus lanes.
After a wet start, the sun broke through as thousands from across the country thronged the Long Walk.
Musicians performed on a stage, and giant screens have also been set up for revelers to watch tonight’s outdoor concert.
Sam Sahota, a car enthusiast from West London said: ‘The whole family is here and we have a brilliant day, even if the weather wasn’t great.
“It’s great to see Prince Philip’s taxi. I didn’t know it was his until someone told me, but this is a very unusual piece of royal history.”
The Duke of Edinburgh owned many other vehicles during his lifetime, but none were as inconspicuous as the Metrocab.
He was often caught driving around in his Land Rover, once even giving former US President Barrack Obama and his wife Michelle a lift to Windsor Castle.
The Jubilee Picnic in the Park also played host to Prince Philip’s beloved taxi, which he used to travel incognito into London.
The green, gas-powered Metrocab was parked just outside the gates of Windsor Castle.
The Princes and Princess of Kent are also said to have spotted the taxi alongside other vehicles on the Long Walk.
A total of 70 cars were lined up for each year of the Queen’s reign from 1952 to 2022 on the property.
There is also a variety of performances including Maidenhead Tuneless Choir, Susan Handy Dance, Joanna Henwood Opera, Soul Works, Windsor Rock Choir, Swing and Concert Band during the day in Windsor.
The picnic will also screen the national Platinum Party at the Palace, which will begin outside Buckingham Palace at 8pm.
Prince William and his father Prince Charles will take center stage later in the day on the BBC’s open-air show in front of a crowd of 22,000 to pay tribute to the Queen at the star-studded concert.
The father and son – both future kings – will speak separately in honor of the monarch.
The Queen is not expected to attend the concert as she missed the Epsom Derby Day today, but is expected to watch from home.
Prince William and Kate were spotted earlier today with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they brought the platinum anniversary celebrations to Wales today.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with George, eight, and Charlotte, seven, met performers and crew involved in a special Platinum Jubilee Celebration concert in Wales.
Yesterday, the Royal Family attended the Queen’s Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday morning.
The Queen was also not present at this event and was represented at the service by her son.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who relinquished royal duties in March 2020 were sitting between Harry’s cousins, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie and their respective husbands, and Princess Margaret’s daughter Lady Chatto and her family.
Before them sat the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Prince Michael of Kent, 79, a son of Prince George, Duke of Kent, and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark is a cousin of the Queen and sat with the rest of the extended family as less senior royals behind the working royals.
His father was the brother of the Queen’s father, George VI.
He is involved in about 100 charities and organizations, but he is not a working royal and does not carry out assignments on behalf of his cousin the Queen.
His wife Princess Michael of Kent, 77, also attended the service. She is actively involved in approximately 45 different charities and organizations, including animal and wildlife trusts and health and wellness charities.
The final leg of the anniversary festivities will be the crowd celebrating the country’s longest reigning monarch with a series of open-air parties on Sunday. There will also be a final procession parade outside Buckingham Palace.
