(CNN)Britain's Queen Elizabeth II appeared Thursday on Buckingham Palace's famous balcony with several members of her family as celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee kicked off in London.

It was the moment many fans below were waiting for. However, there were a few notable absences following the monarch's decision last month that only royals carrying out official duties would be invited to join her.
That call ruled out Prince Harry — sixth in line to the throne — and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex both of whom stepped back from royal duties in 2020. It also meant Prince Andrew, who lost his HRH title in January, was not present either.
