Her Majesty the Queen enjoyed an online performance from a children’s orchestra in Cyprus in honour of her wedding anniversary.
- The Queen joined a video call and smiled as she enjoyed a 45-piece children’s orchestra perform for her as part of the Commonwealth Points of Light Award
- The piece of music was called Modus Cyprius and was in honour of the Queen and Prince Philip’s 73rd wedding anniversary
- It follows royal news that the Queen leaves her Christmas decorations up for months for this heartbreaking reason
A sweet, home-made card from Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis was not the only gift the Queen received to mark her 73rd wedding anniversary to Prince Philip.
Her Majesty was also treated to a virtual performance by Sistema Cyprus - a 45-piece children’s choir created by Nikoletta Polydorou to provide vulnerable youngsters with free music lessons and instruments.
The Queen, 94, dialled into a video call (not her first after she enjoyed a special birthday phone call earlier this year) with the group after Nikoletta received one of the Commonwealth Points of Light Award and was treated to a performance by the kids.
The piece of music performed was called Modus Cyprius and was created in honour of the Queen and Prince Philip’s 73rd wedding anniversary, which they celebrated last week after news of their heartwarming daily habit was revealed.

In clips shared from the video call, the Queen can be seen smiling and enjoying the performance from the comfort of Windsor Castle.
She wrote a two-tone pink dress and her signature pearl necklace for the occasion.
During the call, the Queen also spoke to two other winners - Ruy from Mozambique - who took the Queen on her first ever virtual tour to show his soup kitchen, which fed 6000 people a day during the pandemic.
And Len, from Trinidad and Tobago, a turtle conservationist whose work has transformed the country into one of the world’s densest leatherback sea turtle nesting sites.
The Monarch’s latest virtual appearance comes just days after her Christmas plans were revealed, amid news of a “Royal bubble” - in place to protect the Queen from covid-19 this Christmas.
With government guidelines allowing just three households to mix together over Christmas, it is thought Prince Edward and his family will be one of those invited to join the Queen at Sandringham.
