We had the flashing of the beacons, the trooping of the color and the amazing Lancaster bomber flyby.
And now the party gets even more spectacular as millions of us will enjoy street parties in honor of Her Majesty The Queen’s remarkable reign. 70 years on the throne.
Few of our so-called national treasures could ever imagine spending 70 years in the spotlight and staying in the spotlight for so long.
But a bearded, special little Brit can….
And coincidentally, Her Majesty was one of his earliest fans.
Now this superstar and friend of the royals will join the Daily Mirror’s Jess Saying Live to help kickstart Saturday’s platinum anniversary fun.
So who is this esteemed guest and royal expert?
Well, SOOTY, of course!
The famous bear first met The Queen in 1955 and will now join Daily Mirror columnist Jessica Boulton in explaining to all the young and parents (and the young at heart) why this weekend’s celebrations are so important are.
And of course he’ll have heaps of fun doing it – from some of his magic tricks that have wowed the royals over the years, to some of his special ‘talents’ that he’ll use to entertain guests at his own street party.
And what is Sooty planning for host Richard Cadell? Well, let’s just say….it could get bearish, bearish messy.
Columnist Jessica says: “Sooty loves watching our Daily Mirror Lives and was one of our most popular guests while doing a special family show during the pandemic.

“Now he’s back to kickstart the fun this weekend, bright and early at 9am Saturday morning.
“He wants to tell all his young fans about The Queen and why we’re celebrating their amazing performance. He may have known her since the beginning of her reign, but he knows a lot of his younger fans haven’t been around that long, so he’s doing it to let them know what a fabulous queen she is.
“And he should know – because he’s royal himself now.”
Sooty opened his own kingdom, Sooty Land, at Crealy Theme Park & Resort in Devon last month and he and his longtime girlfriend Soo are now King and Queen. However, Sweep is not so lucky.
