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

She writes on Saturday about how impressed she has been by the "immediate inclination" of people to "offer comfort and support to those in desperate need".

The day began on a somber note when Elizabeth and Philip observed a minute of silence in honor of the victims of the horrific London apartment tower fire.

An emotional Prince William described the tragedy as "one of the most bad things [he's] ever seen". "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favor, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss".

The London Metropolitan Police service said that there were likely no more survivors, which could further increase the death toll and bring it into triple digits.

A total of 58 people who were dead or missing, presumed dead in the devastating fire, police said on Saturday.

First Secretary of State Damian Green, May's deputy, said the prime minister was "distraught" and shared "the same degree of sympathy and horror" as everyone else.

"It was murder" said the front page of The Sun; "May takes cover" said The Times; "Inferno: the anger erupts", said the Daily Mail.

Talks with the DUP broke up on Tuesday night without an agreement, but Mrs May said the discussions had been "productive". Mr Adams said: 'We have just finished a meeting with the British prime minister and her secretary of state.


Emergency workers have reached the 24 floor, the top floor, of the tower.

Hundreds of protesters also marched on Whitehall, central London, to voice their frustration at the Government's response to the fire, which ripped through the tower block in north Kensington on Wednesday morning. She became queen in 1952, aged 25.

Prime Minister Theresa May met with survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire.

A leading gastroenterologist, academics and several professionals across different fields are among the various Indianorigin achievers in the United Kingdom named in the Queen's annual Birthday Honours' list released on Saturday.

As for why the Queen celebrates her birthday twice, the Royal Mint explains, "The official birthday is held in the summer as it means there's a better chance of good weather for the ceremony".

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to a sense of frustration at the lack of information about how the fire moved so quickly to engulf the building.

Scuffles broke out near the Kensington and Chelsea town hall offices Friday as demonstrators chanting "We want justice!" surged toward the doors.
