Families and friends packed on to the Long Walk in Windsor on Sunday afternoon to watch the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations on big screens.
About 5,000 people, who won tickets for the party through a ballot, enjoyed the last of the weekend sunshine, bringing picnics, waving flags, and in some cases even wearing fancy dress.
The gates opened during the afternoon and there were food stalls and live musical entertainment.
Prior to the start of the horse show celebrations happening in nearby Home Park, hosts Ant and Dec stopped by to say hello to The Long Walk crowd and to record some links for the ITV broadcast.
Footage from inside the horseshow arena was then shown live on the screens.
