A last minute phone call from Prince Charles convinced the Queen to be there in person in what some said was the highlight of the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Many commentators said the highlight of the four-day weekend of celebrations was the Queen’s appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

Dressed in a matching green outfit, the Queen stood alongside a streamlined version of the working members of the royal family.

But the amazing moment almost didn’t happen after the Queen came close to not attending in the hours leading up to the pageant.

The 96-year-old monarch was reportedly not doing particularly well and was only there thanks to a phone call from the Prince of Wales.

The Daily Mail reported that a source said: “The Queen only decided to go to London about three hours before the balcony performance.

“She wasn’t feeling great but the Prince of Wales called her and told her to really come if she could.

“He told her that so many people were dying to see her, and he convinced her to come.”

The Queen made the journey from Windsor to London and was left “tearful and overwhelmed with emotion” during the grand finale of the celebrations last Sunday.

She was reportedly surprised and amazed at the sheer number of people who had traveled from all over the world to see her and had tears in her eyes before stepping onto the balcony.

After an agreement with Charles and William, the performance was carefully choreographed.

This meant that the monarch would have the Prince of Wales on her right and the Duke of Cambridge and his eldest son, Prince George, on her left, representing the next three generations of kings.

Unfortunately, however, it may be the last time all four generations will be seen at such a high-profile occasion.

A source told the Mail that she is now progressively using virtual appointments and digital appearances rather than appearing in person.

She is now expected to take a long summer break in Scotland, where Craigowan Lodge, a stone house on the Balmoral Estate, has been fitted with mobility aids, including a stairlift, to help the aging Queen.

The Queen sent a personal message of gratitude in response to the large number of supporters during the centenary weekend.

She said: “While I may not have personally attended every event, my heart was with all of you; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.”
