THE QUEEN reacted unexpectedly after being described as “the heart of the nation” at an event this weekend, leading the monarch to go viral on social media. On Sunday, Her Majesty attended the final day of an equestrian extravaganza show to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee. The open-air celebration, arranged to mark the Queen’s 70-year reign, was a star-studded occasion featuring Tom Cruise, Helen Mirren and Katherine Jenkins.

 

 

At the event, hosted at Windsor Castle, TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh lavished the sovereign with praise – something which she is likely to be familiar with after serving as head of state for seven decades.He told attendees: “For 70 years, there has been one constant heartbeat of this nation.“And that heart belongs to Her Majesty the Queen.”

Guests in the attendance politely broke out into rapturous applause, while the monarch gave a meme-worthy reaction.The show, called A Gallop Through History, featured more than 500 horses and 1,000 performers as it charts over five centuries of Royal Family history.

 

 

After the camera panned to the Queen, Alan Titchmarsh continued: “As commander and chief of the Armed Forces, head of the Commonwealth, leader of the nation we are proud to live in.“We sometimes forget that our head of state is actually a person, feels as we do, enjoys the things we do, and is very much a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother as well as being our monarch”He went on to reference the Queen’s love of all things equestrian, as anything horse related has long been acknowledged as one of the monarch’s favourite past times.

 

 

He said: “One of Her Majesty’s personal pleasures is horses and ponies in all their guises.“One thing the Queen takes great happiness from is her family’s involvement in her love, whether it be racing, eventing, showing rare breeds or just riding out in Windsor great park.
