1:01 am
nation and called for a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but can the president convince the country do something this time. ♪ more celebrations today. the world is watching, the uk is watching, many of the members of the public have arrived here, this just the second day of four days of celebrations. this is a public holiday in the uk. how many public figures can command that in honor of their service. sadly the queen won't be appearing as planned here. reluctantly the palace said she's had to pull out, she suffered discomfort yesterday during the military commemorations in central london. and that happened through the day i understand from my sources and she had to pull out of today's service.
1:02 am
it is quite a distance here, the service is very long and she is clearly overexerted herself. but prince charles will be stepping in for her which is pretty symbolic. she just can't do what she thinks she is able to do. the service marks the queen's years on the throne, they will still go ahead as planned. the bells of great paul will begin ringing at 5:50 eastern. it is the biggest church bell in the land. so you will hear it from a long way away. and the royal family will then begin to arrive, the service will be followed by lunch reception. the duke and duchess of sussex are planning to come today. we don't expect to see the children, but they are here in the uk as well. on thursday evening the queen took part of course in beacon lighting. this is the lighting of firesco
1:03 am
tradition. thousands were lit in many countries. and that really did follow a day filled with pomp and pageantry and much excitement as we got a chance to see the queen on day one of the jubilee commemorations. a monumental moment in history, one we won't see again in our lifetimes. queen elizabeth ii marks 70 years of service and just a couple years away from being the longest reigning monarch in world history. to the joy of thousands of her supporters who came from all corners of the globe to witness this once in a lifetime event. >> i just love the queen. she's served so selflessly the last 70 years, dedicated her life to the country. i'm so grateful to her for that. i'm so proud of her. you know, just wanted to come over and say thank you really. so this is me just saying thank you to her for her service. >> i think that it is a once in a generation type event.
1:04 am
and to be able to be here is just amazing. and i can tell you the appetite back in the u.s. for not only this celebration but the royal family is through the roof. >> a special trooping of the colour military ceremony kicking off the celebration and even shameless the mascot dog of the irish dogs. camilla and kate are the first royals to arrive. the queen's great grandchildren also. and closely followed by princess ann, prince william and princess charles. a all part of the gradual transition to prince charles's monarchy that comes next. prime minister boris johnson amongst the guests nicknaming her elizabeth the great.
1:05 am
indeed the queen of 15 nations, her jubilee was also commemorated across the commonwealth with the lighting of beacons in new zealand, fee i didn't f igi and india. but it also also marked by the absence of prince harry and me began and prince andrew, no longer working royals. and despite concerns about her state of health, the queen beamed during the fly pass with her loyal subjects cheering her every move. perhaps the same can't be said for her great grandchildren. their presence also a symbol of the passing of the baton. one that was passed to her back in 1953. now she is preparing to hand the bat baton to her next in line.
1:06 am
let's go to windsor, that is where the queen is today. i'm sure that she will be watching the virs heservice here tv. anna stu ewart is outside. we shouldn't be concerned, they are just trying to be realistic about what she can achieve after a busy day. >> of course. i think we knew that there would be almost day by day decision on whether her majesty would be able to attend all the various events. and all here who were glued to the tv and a lot of people went to london for the day to watch it, i think a lot of people were surprised that she did as much as she did given that she is 96 years old and she has mobility issues. and it is important to remember looking back at yesterday that she lives here at windsor castle, so yesterday it was about getting ready for the world's cameras, traveling in to london, and she stood on the balcony for quite a long time. i imagine that there was a big
1:07 am
family gatherings inside the palace as well. and then she came back here to windsor where she did start out the celebration with the beacon lighting. and i was asleep. so it was very active and i don't think that it is concerning and hopefully she will be tuning into st. paul's cathedral today and that service and hopefully to cnn watching you, max. >> of course she's watching cnn. what else would she watch? let's speak to our historian kate williams. if yesterday was about the queen being commander of the british forces, today it is about being head of the church. >> and i think that is why the queen will be disappointed to his today because her faith is so important to her, it always has been. her role is not always what we think about when we think about the queen because we think about her opening of parliament, but it means so much to her.
1:08 am
she swore to god on her day when she took the oath. >> and another symbolic moment, we expect to see her, she can't come, to prince charles steps into her, but these are always optics that they were prepared for. this is part of the longer term transition. >> this is part of the longer term transition because the queen knows she is incredibly popular. she's loved and respected all around the world. the incredible turnout for the jubilee. and we're used to seeing prince charles in these roles. >> and we know that the sussexs meghan and harry were at that military parade but they didn't put themselves in front of the cameras. there was a bit of video that came out but that wasn't planned. this is the day when we are expecting to see them, we know that they will appear on camera, will that be an extraordinary moment for you to see them back in the royal fold? what does it mean? >> i think that it would be a fantastic moment. it is great to see them back
1:09 am
here, representing the royal family and of course we have lilibet's birthday party that the queen will attend tomorrow and it really does show that the sussexs are valued and loved members of the family. >> do you think that the rift is healing? >> i think that the rift is healing. i think the rift is healing and it is helped really by the fact that the press ingot off the sussexs at present, there had been a lot of negative coverage before but not at the moment and that will really help the rift because it has been tough on them with the press they have had. >> in terms of these events, what do you expect us to see? this will feel very regal, won't it, this is the church that charles and diana were married in, very recognizable. how would you describe the atmosphere? >> it will be solemn and regal. yesterday was a big spectacular party with the fly pass and amazing tribute to the armed service. but today is much more solemn, a solemn sense of thanksgiving for the queen and her incredible 70
1:10 am
years. >> and i understand commendations will be made for people who contributed to public life particularly people involved in response to the pandemic and that was also reflected yesterday, the irish guards were honored yesterday and they were heavily involved in the pandemic. this is something that the queen feels very strongly about that, you know, all that public work that went into that response should be recognized. >> yes, the queen always likes to recognize people who have work so hard for the country. particularly covid. in the dark days of covid, she gave that amazing address on television saying we will meet again and this is exactly what she is saying. we'll meet again, we're up together and i cannot thank you for all the work you've done. >> thank you, kate. and the prime minister will be here, many dignitaries reflecting the queen's reign and also head of the commonwealth. stick with, we'll have all the highlights throughout date.

1:31 am
much yesterday, suffered discomfort throughout the day during that balcony moment. she was able to attend a beacon lighting later on in the evening. but that was pretty much it. she cannot travel all the way here and sit through a long service, so she is out there at windsor at the moment. the queen did thrill nevertheless, she looked happy up on the balcony for all the military elements. there was a parade. prince charles stepping in for her there as he will have to today. and that will be the theme going forward. if she can make an event, she will try to get there but we'll see prince charles really stepping in to represent her. not becoming the monarch himself, no question that that will happen, but he will certainly be representing her on these types of occasions. now, countries around the world are engaged in this as well. particularly the 14 other countries where the queen is head of state. australia, spots of africa, and also to north america, canada of

1:34 am
canada a few weeks ago alluding to how the monarchy may need to change especially when it comes to reconciliation especially with indigenous peoples. but this was in fact an occasion for celebration and certainly to continue that outpouring that so many canadians have for the service and the love of their queen. paula newton, cnn, ottawa. and kate williams is with me here. there will be high commissioners from around the world, ambassadors from around the world invited today to remember the queen and say thanks effectively for the last 70 years of service. canada is interesting. it is largely pro monarchy, obviously parts of quebec a big republican movement, but other countries that are very much moving away from monarchy. so people will be looking at today's event with different prisms today i think. >> yes, we are expecting to see a big change in terms of the
1:35 am
queen as head of state. 15 countries that she is head of state over. jamaica, antiqua and also belize and australia have all talked about change and we expect to happen in the next monarchy, but certainly they are beginning to happen now. and it means that we will see a very different monarchy in the future. >> and we have a helicopter above. people are starting to come. these all public service workers and dignitaries. the prime minister is arriving today as well. i think that he will be speaking. that is the suggestion anyway. he has described her as elizabeth the great. your role as historian, is that phrase that you will start using in your bio? >> i do think in years to do that we'll look back on this era as the high water mark of monarchy. i don't think that monarchy will ever be as popular, as talked about, as significant. it really is the great moment monarchy under elizabeth ii.

military will control the entire luhansk region. despite heavy losses and slow progress, russia has continued to gain territory in the east. president zelenskyy says the donbas which includes severdonetsk is simply devastated. here he is. >> translator: as of now, nearly 20% of our territory is under the control of occupiers. almost 125,000 square kilometers. it is more than the territory of all the countries together. nearly 300,000 square kilometers are polluted with mines an unexbu unexun exploded ordinances. >> and there are no immediate plans to withdraw from severdonetsk. ukraine's military also reports heavy fighting north of sloviansk with russian shelling
1:41 am
almost every minute. church of ukraine says three monks were killed by striking nearby. nada bashir is covering this for us. what is the latest in severdonetsk? >> reporter: president zelenskyy has acknowledged the significance losses, the 20% around mark of territory that is now in russian control. and of course severdonetsk has become the key focal point of ukraine's counter offensive against russia's military offensive in ukraine. we've seen severe bombardment in severdonetsk, the situation there has been described as difficult by senior ukrainian military officials. and of course the ukrainian armed forces, the troops there in that city are facing a significant risk of potentially being encircled by the russian trooped. but as you mentioned, despite the situation on the ground, we've heard from the ukrainian armed forces that they do not
1:42 am
see an immediate withdrawal at least at this stage. they continue with their counter owe fechffensive and their atte push the forces back. and we heard from president zelenskyy speaking yesterday during his daily address and he suggested some small signs of progress on the ground. take a listen. >> translator: the situation in donbas has not changed significantly in a day. we have some successes in the battles for severdonetsk but it is too early to tell. it is the hardest area we have now. >> reporter: and taking a cautionary tone, the situation on the gound is extremely difficult as we've heard, that constant bombardment by the russian armed forces. but we heard from luhansk military administration yesterday, he said that the ukrainian armed forces in severdonetsk had taken some russian troops captive, that they continue to hold the western edges of the city. but also acknowledging that now the russian troops are in
1:43 am
control of the majority of the city. at least around 80%. and of course the key focus now is really preventing the russian armed forces from pushing further west when we've heard the kremlin repeatedly express its objectives, it believes in its words that it is liberating the people of the luhansk region. and we've heard from uk intelligence in the last two hours saying that the signs on the ground is that the russian armed forces are having tactical success and they expect the luhansk region to be in total russian control within the next two weeks. kim. >> nada bashir, thanks so much. parts of florida are now under tropical storm warnings thanks to a storm system currently northwest of cozumel, mexico. it is getting stronger and forecasters expect to become rop tropical storm alex sometime friday afternoon. and gene norman is joining us from the cnn weather center here in atlanta.
1:44 am
and so you are tracking it, how bad is it going to be and where is it going to hit? >> and this is mainly going to be a big rainmaker with the potential for flooding rains across southern florida and sections of cuba as well as the bahamas. a couple years ago the hurricane center started using a classification of a potential tropical cyclone, this lets them put out watches and warnings even a system gets a name and becomes more organized. and right now this system is having a hard time getting itself together here. just off the tip of the yucatan peninsula, kind of lopsided because of upper level winds shearing it apart. but we expect that it will begin to get more organized during the afternoon today and it should become a tropical storm with the name alex. it will be headed for southern florida and the name will precede it by a couple of hours. but the big concern with this with anytime that you have a tropical storm is the flooding rains and that is what we're expecting. and because of that the hurricane center will put out
1:45 am
tropical storm warnings from ft. myers back down to key west and that blue shading. other areas are a tropical storm watch. warning means that those conditions are expected within the next 24 hours. here is the latest track. we're expecting to become a tropical storm later today on into tonight, make a landfall sometime saturday afternoon, and then continue on into the atlantic kind of harmlessly, no real concern once it moves out to sea, but that rain, that is really going to start later on this afternoon. pick up with intensity overnight and into saturday. and, boy, we're talking about a lot of rain across southern florida, in fact the projections are anywhere from 6 to 8 inches in some spots, could see localized areas of up to 10 inches of rain. and that will likely lead to flooding. the other concern is of course the storm surge, as this system heads toward the southwestern coast of florida. so we'll continue to track it, but it looks like a lot of rain
1:46 am
for southern florida. >> a lot to look out for this weekend. appreciate it, gene norman. and that does it for me here at cnn's world headquarters in atlanta. we'll have more on the upcoming june lee c jubilee celebrations with max foster. stay with us. qulipta™ can help prevent migraine attacks. you can't prevent what's goingng on outside, that's why qulipta™ helps what's going on n inside. qulipta™ is a pill. gets right to work to prevent migraine attacks and keeps them away over timime. qulipta™ blocks cgrp a protein believed to be a cause of migraine attacks. qulipta™ is a preventive treatment for episodic migraine. most common side effects are nausea, constipation, and tiredness. learn how abbvie can help you save on qulipta™.
