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

Amid the turmoil of militant attacks, political crisis and a deadly fire disaster, Queen Elizabeth said Britain was in a deeply sombre mood but that its people were resolute in the face of adversity. "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies", she said in a statement according to the Guardian.

He talked emotionally about the Grenfell Tower tragedy, which has claimed the lives of at least 30 people and described the fire as "one of the most bad things I have ever seen".

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.

Furious residents heckled May and stormed the local authority headquarters on Friday, demanding justice for the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster, claiming the fatal blaze was due to negligence.

The fire at the 24-story building has led to community anger and protests over the British government's response. The protesters eventually made their way to busy Oxford Circus, where they staged a sit-in.

Prime Minister Theresa May was greeted with cries of "coward" and "shame on you" as she returned to the site of the devastating fire in west London on Friday after being criticised for not meeting victims in the wake of the tragedy.

May had faced criticism for not meeting with survivors in the immediate aftermath, unlike Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan. Police have since launched a criminal investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire. They examined the apartment where the fire started and determined "there is nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately". No sprinkler system was installed.

She also met victims of the Manchester bombing being treated in hospital following the attack after an Ariana Grande concert in which 22 people died in May.

All of these people have now lost their homes and property, as well as family, friends and loved ones. She then gave an interview to the BBC in which she repeatedly avoided answering a question on whether she had misjudged the public mood, using only talking points in reply.

"It has been decided today that the public inquiry will report back to me personally".

The Prime Minister is facing particular scrutiny over the role of her new chief of staff, Gavin Barwell, who served as housing minister until he lost his seat in last week's snap general election.

Service on two London Underground lines has been partially suspended because of concerns about the safety of the high-rise in the fire that killed at least 30 people.
