Even Queen Elizabeth is amazed at how happy her Platinum Jubilee season has been so far.

The 96-year-old, who is Britain’s longest-serving monarch, is celebrating 70 years on the throne. He is expected to appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the Trooping the Color parade on June 2 and greet the public along with elderly members of his family.

“I was so lucky to be able to make the opening event for the Platinum Jubilee,” True Royalty TV co-founder Nick Bullen told Fox News Digital. “We are celebrating the Platinum Jubilee at Windsor Castle. You’ve probably seen photos of the Queen in her back garden at Windsor Castle doing what she loves most which is watching her horses, watching her family and watching marching bands.

“We have something called the Top Secret Drum Corps in Switzerland, which he loves. If you watch the program, he makes everyone laugh.”

“There’s such a joy in this moment,” Bullen shared. “First, we haven’t had it since, and we probably won’t get it again. The second is that people all over the world love it so much. There was this admiration, this adoration and this sincere love for the queen. And third, the sad thing is that we may never see him again.

“This will be the last great celebration of his reign. He will likely organize another big Jubilee celebration. There is no great wedding to the king in deeds. So in terms of a national or even a global event, I think everyone realizes this is the end. ”

Bullen is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who has been producing British Royal Family programs for 20 years and has worked closely with Prince Charles for almost a decade. While he founded his production company Spun Gold in 2004, Bullen had already made the royal interior before that.

True Royalty TV will air the exclusive US documentary “The Queen Unseen” on June 1. The film, produced by ITV, features rare footage and home movies shot by members and friends of the Royal Family .

Bullen describes how, while preparing programs about the Queen for his streaming platform, he witnessed the many emotions the British felt at this important moment in the Queen’s reign.

“At this event I did in Windsor last week, people were crying around me,” he recalls. “Tears welled up. People were crying around the hall and around the arena. It has this big wave of love. ”

Bullen also noted Elizabeth’s deep gratitude to her audience and support.

“When his car stopped in the area, there was a huge applause,” he said. “Friends are thunderous. Even she was surprised at how much love was for him. I think he’s a bit more energetic. He was not well, had movement problems, but he was one of his own. It gives him strength. And he loves it.

Buckingham Palace has said the Queen’s attendance at the Platinum Jubilee weekend events is unlikely to be confirmed until “in the day”.

Despite the mobility issues, the Queen made surprise appearances during the Platinum Jubilee. He recently made his first public appearance in weeks when he attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show, where he watched his beloved horses perform. He was also the guest of honor at a horse show near Windsor, where Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise and Helen Mirren were guests.

Shortly afterwards, Elizabeth showed up at a London station to see a newly completed pipe line named in her honor.

Buckingham Palace called the visit a “happy development”, as “the organizers were advised of the possibility of him attending”.

Bullen said he was told by palace insiders how happy the Queen was that she could make her last trips possible. He has no hesitation in providing these surprises before the weekend.

“I knew there were big things planned for the Jubilee weekend, which he was very excited about,” he said. “Obviously he likes it very much. He enjoys being with people, whether in the UK or around the world. He likes to meet people. It gave him joy.

“He had a line, ‘I have to see to believe.’ She loves to be seen. She loves to go out and get the big wave of love that follows her. This amount of love grew stronger until the Jubilee. ”

It was a happy time for Buckingham Palace, who recently suffered a huge loss. In 2021, Elizabeth’s husband of more than 70 years, Prince Philip, died at the age of 99. Royal experts have long insisted that Elizabeth is unlikely to step down because of her lifelong commitment to public service. . However, he gave more responsibility to his eldest son Charles, who was next in line to the throne.

The queen continued to reign, but she was far from alone.

“It’s been an exciting time for the Queen, whose family has stayed by her side,” Bullen said. “There’s always been a lot of interest in the Queen in public, and you definitely feel that now. We continue to admire her.”
