'Trooping the color' in London for queen's official birthday

British Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip leave the Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour in London, Britain, on June 17, 2017.

Previously, the monarch had released an unprecedented statement in which she said that the United Kingdom remained "resolute in the face of adversity", in reference to the terror attacks in Manchester and London, as well as the deadly fire.

The monarch and her grandson, Prince William, paid a visit to the Westway Sports Centre in White City, West London, on Friday. This year, however, it is hard to escape a very somber national mood. "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies", she said in a statement according to the Guardian.

The Queen of England has said the country has been "resolute in the face of adversity" following recent tragedies in London and Manchester.

"United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss", she said.

Queen Elizabeth II is doing what she can to comfort the survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

At 91, she still regularly carries out official duties but has cut back on her number of engagements in recent years.

THE Queen has praised the country's toughness and generosity of spirit over recent weeks in a message on her official birthday.

More than 70 people reportedly remain unaccounted for and the area surrounding the tower has been plastered by distraught relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has also visited the site. Relatives of those missing after a high-rise tower blaze in London are searching frantically for their loved ones, as the police commander in charge of the investigation says he hopes the death toll will not rise to three figures.

The Guardian's front page reported: "Protesters boo PM and march to Downing Street". It brought traffic in central London to a halt. "Absolutely, she has the same degree of sympathy and horror at these events that we all have". That is why I ordered a public inquiry, with the costs for providing victims with legal representation met by government. She addressed worries that victim's voices "will not be heard".
