Ed Sheeran Will Pay Incredible Tribute To The Queen and Prince Philip's Love For Platinum Jubilee

In a moving tribute to the
Queen and her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, Ed Sheeran will
dedicate a performance to the couple at the upcoming Jubilee Pageant, it was
revealed on Sunday.

The star is set to
perform his hit song Perfect following the carnival procession
through the streets of London on Sunday, 5 June.

The singer-songwriter will
sing the love song as footage of the Queen and Philip, who died last year at
the age of 99, is broadcast on giant screens.

The couple were married for 73
years and Her Majesty and members of the royal family attended a service of
thanksgiving in honour of Prince Philip’s life in March.

There will be other tributes
to the late royal throughout the pageant, including a Bollywood-inspired
interpretation of the couple’s 1947 wedding day, which will feature a six-metre
high model of a wedding cake playing classic Bollywood anthems and accompanied
by 250 Bollywood dancers.

The pair first met in 1939 at
the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth where Prince Philip was studying.

They began writing to each
other and became friends before Philip was invited to spend the Christmas of
1943 with the royal family at Windsor.

The couple secretly
became engaged in the summer of 1946 but the official announcement wasn’t
made until the following year after Princess Elizabeth had returned from a
royal tour of South Africa.

The pair lived in Malta after
they wed, where Philip was stationed in the Navy, but following King George’s
death, they moved back to London where the Queen acceded to the
throne.

The pageant is one of
several events marking the Queen’s incredible 70 years on the throne. A
representation of Philip’s sailing boat Bluebottle will feature in the section
devoted to the Queen’s Favourites, which will also include puppet corgis and
horses.
