Today marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day — 75 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe.
On this day millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, mourn their loved ones, and to hope for the future.
During the war Her Majesty The Queen - then Princess Elizabeth - joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service, where she trained as a mechanic, becoming the first female member of the Royal Family to join the Armed Services as a full-time active member.
When the guns fell silent on this day in 1945, Princess Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret joined the jubilant crowds in central London — the future Queen attempted to stay anonymous during the celebrations by pulling her cap down over her eyes.
On #veday75 Members of The Royal Family, including The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will mark the day — keep an eye on our feed, and on @theroyalfamily for more later today.
