8th May marks 70 years since Victory in Europe Day, following the surrender of Nazi Germany. It was this night that the then-Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret left Buckingham Palace to go celebrate on the streets of London with the public. The Queen has described the event as one of the best nights of her life, but can you guess where the Queen is?
HRH secretly joined in with the celebrations across London, through the Mall, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus – even doing a conga through the Ritz before heading back to the palace.
When they arrived back at Buckingham Palace they joined in with the crowds and their chanting of “we want the King” and according to the Queen, the royal party sent a message into the palace so that the King came onto the balcony for all to see.
Princess Elizabeth’s and Princess Margaret’s extraordinary night out to celebrate VE Day is portrayed in the new feature film A Royal Night Out.
