those are russian tanks that were destroyed in this war that are here in this park with this monastery over here as well. and another reminder right before we came on the air, there was a military funeral procession. so it's just -- and the first lady talked about the balance, talked about a balance of what's happening here in kyiv and what's happening in other parts of this country, this beautiful country. >> but, robin, the threat is real. we heard the air siren go off in the middle of your interview. i know you can't tell us much. but how are you staying safe? >> reporter: oh, gosh, michael, thank you for asking. we have great security, you know that. and, ooh, we have the proper equipment if anything should happen. we're well taken care of. that's the least of our worries but, yeah, when i was thinking about coming here, it came to mind because like you and everybody at home, you see the
7:13 am
pictures. but i got to tell you, what a compliment to "gma" viewers that the first lady wanted her interview to be with us. she knows that our audience is engaged about what's going on around the world and in our country and so it really was a privilege to come here and see this with my own eyes. >> it was a privilege for us as well. i'm sure for all of our viewers. we can't wait to see more in our next half hour. thank you, robin. >> okay, george and robin, thank you. we turn to the funerals held today for three more young victims in uvalde. 11-year-old miranda mathis and nevaeh bravo and eliahana torres will all be laid to rest. just hours after president biden said he's not confident congress will act on gun control, we have another deadly shooting in tulsa at a medical facility. four victims killed and john quinones has the latest. >> reporter: this morning authorities are searching for answers after a mass shooting in tulsa, oklahoma, left four people dead. >> there's shooting at the natalie building. 6475 south yale. >> they're running in. >> reporter: police seen storming the building after a man entered a medical office armed with a rifle. >> officers immediately rushed

victims. cecelia? >> john, thank you. seems unreal we are talking about another shooting but here we are. michael, we're going to switch gears. we are going to switch gears. it's going to be tough, but we'll go to london. we are just moments away from the queen's highly anticipated first appearance as the world honors her 70 years on the throne. it is her platinum jubilee. amy and t.j. are right in the middle of all the excitement outside buckingham palace. good morning, you two. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. the crowds, i don't know if you can hear them. they are very excited here in london with the queen's epic celebration now under way. people here cheering as the royal procession went out just a few moments ago. we saw duchess kate riding with all three of her children in the carriage for the very first time. we also saw duchess camilla ride ago long with them and have seen prince william, prince charles and princess anne all riding on horseback. the trooping the colour has been going on for two hours. the precision incredible. >> reporter: it's incredible.

british army carrying on behind me of trooping the colour and this incredible crowd.

voltaren. the joy of movement. ♪♪ this is an abc news special >> announcer: this is an abc news special report, the queen's jubilee, 70 years on the throne. and we are coming on the air because queen elizabeth has just appeared on the balcony to mark her 70 years on the throne. want to go right to amy and t.j. in london. >> reporter: that's right, george. she was precisely on time. we were told she would emerge there on her balcony at exactly 12:20 eastern time and to the second she walked out there to accept the salute from her soldiers as they ride on past. we've been watching trooping the colour, this incredible pageantry on full display here for more than two hours in london, all, of course, in honor of the queen's platinum jubilee. >> reporter: it has been
7:24 am
incredible to watch and has been precise. this is british pageantry on a level you don't see necessarily anywhere else in the world. there she is. taking the salute and will give them a nod. there she is, 96 years old and going strong there and she's joined there on the balcony by that's actually her cousin who is the duke of kent, a royal colonel as well, very close relationship with the military. so they're taking the salute but this is the first time, robes, we have seen this moment in particular because we are used to her during the jubilee, she'll go be a part of the procession and oftentimes used to ride a horse herself and used a carriage. but now because of some mobility issues they changed it up a little bit and that's why she's on and expected to stay on the balcony. >> reporter: we have a perch looking at the balcony from where we are. our deb roberts is right there on the ground, has an amazing view of the queen, deb. tell us what you're seeing and hearing down there.
7:25 am
>> reporter: oh, yeah, amy and t.j., this is the best seat in the house. the crowds are over there yelling but we can see the queen right there as t.j. said with her cousin, the duke of kent and stepping out onto the balcony, this is history because she normally would be down in the courtyard but because of those mobility issues she is receiving that salute up there and she looks, you know, great. she looks like she's really enjoying herself in her blue hat and she'll be joined by her family a little later on this morning, not the entire family ment this is a slimmed down royal family. just the working royals will be joining her, but for now she is out there with her cousin, the duke of kent, and taking this all in. quite a sight to see the queen up there for the first time today and also for the first time receiving the troops like this. >> reporter: and quite a sight as you say, deb. this is a sight they haven't necessarily seen the past few years because of the pandemic. because of covid they had to scale down. they weren't having them
7:26 am
here for awhile for the past couple of years but this is the first year it's come back in full force and with all the pageantry that we're used to seeing and it's happening at a time -- 70 years. she's set so many records, if you will and made so much history, another part of it. 70 years, 70 years as queen of england here and she talked about there, we have our maggie rulli down there. i think, maggie, but deb said she had a great seat. one of the best in the house and you might take issue with that. >> reporter: sorry, deborah, i think we're competing for best seat in the house. i lucked out. take a look behind me. behind all the pomp and pageantry, you can see the queen in the balcony. we saw her when she came out. standing here you really are in the presence of history. this is something the country has never experienced before. celebrating queen elizabeth and her 70 years on the throne. you know, t.j., you mentioned this british pomp and pageantry at its finest. you can hear and see them behind me. it is just an incredible thing to witness. >> reporter: it certainly is. you know, i was reading some fun facts about how they pulled this off.
7:27 am
some of these soldiers have discreet radios on them apparently. they're receiving commands from the ops room. so everything is timed out to total precision. and, maggie, can you talk a little about the fact that they had a two-year hiatus truly? so this requires so much practice and precision and they didn't really have their typical opportunity because they usually do this in some form or fashion every year. this was -- this has been a big buildup to create this same sort of pageantry that we're all used to seeing. >> reporter: yeah, exactly. you know, this is something we've been waiting for. not only is it a historic platinum jubilee but also we haven't had any trooping the colour here in london in a couple of years because of covid or trooping the colour that looked like this anyway. it's the first time i'm able to experience this because it's been so understated the last few years. not only does it mean a lot for the royal family and monarchy
7:28 am
but it means so much for the country right now as well. guys? >> reporter: to that point, we've been here most of the week now. just everywhere you go around london, this really is such a celebration of this queen who is beloved here and she is still going at 96. george, i'm going to send it back to you. there she is, the moment that really everybody here in the uk has been waiting for. >> she is, t.j. everybody in the uk and we can feel that energy in new york this morning as well. the pageantry and the joy there in london as the queen celebrates her 70th jubilee coming out to the balcony to wave to the crowds. this is just the beginning of the celebration, just the on "gma." of our coverage here - we'll be staying with it all morning long. please stay with us. so whether you■re breaking a sweat, breaking down barriers, or breaking the laws of gravity, keep moving with the ultimate energy bar. we bake in delicious, wholesome ingredients, purposefully crafted with a blend of protein,■fat and carbs. because the more good

7:31 am
precisely. the pageantry, just in full display. people have been waiting for days, some of them camped out to witness this history that we are seeing right here. no british monarch has been on the throne for 70 years so there's never been a platinum jubilee celebration and we see the queen out there on the balcony. normally in years past, of jubilees, diamond, golden, silver, you name it. she was on horseback initially and then moved on to the carriage but with the mobility issues now we are seeing her on the balcony receiving those salutes. >> reporter: we have seen other royals this morning. they were a part of the procession going down, of course, the mile here as they call it. >> reporter: the mile. >> reporter: the horse guard parade down there, but they're making their way back. we expect to see working royals on the balcony with the queen a little later. part of a four-day holiday in this country so they have several days of celebration but this absolutely, the moment that many people are waiting for to see her step out. there you go. we see the kids there.
7:32 am
we see -- we saw camilla. we saw kate and a lot of questions still about harry and meghan. they are here but not expected to be on the balcony at any point. that's just for working royals, something the queen wanted but that doesn't take away from what is a wonderful celebration. this is a birthday celebration for the queen. her actual birthday was in april, but this is a part of a tradition going on since i think 1748 where the monarchs get two celebrations. one in a warmer month if you will to make sure everybody can take part but that's why they kind of have a private birthday but this is the big celebration for the entire country to enjoy. >> reporter: it is a warm one here. it's a beautiful day, and it continues. this is just the beginning. we're going to, as you say, see the other working royals on the balcony with the queen in just a bit so this is just the beginning. we'll have it all for you coming to you from london. guys back to you. >> we'll be back to you in a little bit. >> you guys, thank you. we go back to robin in kyiv. she is with our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell who
7:33 am
has been covering this war for more than three months now. hello, again, robin. >> reporter: hey, michael. i gave this man one of those legendary michael strahan bear hugs when i saw you, ian, and you have been on the front lines. here over one shoulder is the monastery and then you see these damaged russian tanks from this war. how have you seen the city, this country transform from when you got here to now? >> reporter: yeah, robin, great to see you. it's hard to describe. this was a perfectly normal city one day before the war. we were out dining. people were walking their dogs playing in the parks. then president zelenskyy addresses the nation at 4:00 in the morning. no president addresses the nation at 4:00 in the morning because no one is watching unless something big is going to
7:34 am
happen. within one minute of him finishing the shells started. this immediately became a whole city, a whole country on a total war footing. these streets were empty. there were checkpoints and sound of air raid sirens, the sound of shells landing and it looks semi normal here but they could land at any time and they are across ukraine. >> reporter: we flew into slovakia and drove for 12 hours to kyiv and as we got closer and closer we saw, we saw the true destruction. people need to know this isn't what you see all around this country especially in the eastern region. you've been there. >> reporter: totally, totally different. what kyiv was like at the start of the war, the streets are empty, only a fraction of the population are left. people hiding this their basement. we met people on day 99 of the war and spent 99 days living underground in fear of their lives, and that is not normal. that's what the ukrainians have had to endure, but they've done it with such stoicism. it's incredible to witness. >> reporter: you say ukrainians and americans have a lot in common. >> reporter: yeah, 100% because before the war, ukrainians like americans like europeans expected that tomorrow was going to look like today. why not, right? you don't have an expectation that the world could end and you
7:35 am
could die at any moment, that your children can't be safe and you lose your home and that's what changed them. that's what they had to deal with was -- suddenly everything could end in an instant at any time. and, again, don't be fooled by what you see here. that is the reality in the east. the battle out in the east is tough. ukrainians won the battle for kyiv. they won the battle of kharkiv. they're losing now in the east and people are worried about what that means for the country. >> reporter: people have to definitely keep that in mind. how are you? how are you? we were just concerned about you and the crew. you've covered -- first of all, you've covered many wars. how is this one different? i mean the engagement -- you couldn't go down the street in the u.s. without seeing a ukrainian flag flying. what has been the difference, do you think? >> reporter: that level of engagement -- it's always difficult to work out why people connect with one conflict and don't connect with another. i think firstly there's a shared sense that russia is a threat. we've seen russian interference in u.s. elections and activity
7:36 am
online, that influence. so i think it's the sense of a shared threat. i think it's also recognition as ukrainians say and the u.s. government firmly believes it, if putin is not stopped here, this will have much bigger consequences. the american taxpayers has been if putin is not stopped here, the aggressor will go on. it will then be nato and involve america and it could be much worse. seeing it, witnessing it, it's hard. it's hard. those faces stay with you. some of them haunt you for a very long time and they're difficult to talk about and remember, but we're here because it matters. this matters, and the audience kind of understands that. they recognize the fight is much bigger and see the suffering, the sacrifice. we just saw this funeral going through here. that's what's going on every day and it's great that the audience engages and great you're here. >> reporter: i got to tell you, it's great you have been here.

a live look at london where the celebrations are under way for the queen's platinum jubilee right now. we're looking forward to the historic balcony appearance by the queen. this one with her family this time for the flyover. >> that is coming up. right now we'll get the latest on the johnny depp defamation trial. the jury concluded he was defamed by amber heard adding she was also defamed by him for smaller damages. trevor ault has the story. good morning, trevor. >> good morning, george. this was kind of a stunning decision. from the onset of the trial it was believed johnny depp could win in the court of public opinion. some thought that's all he wanted to win, but winning in court and actually proving defamation was always going to be extremely difficult and yet ultimately he won both. >> i do find that the jury's verdict is unanimous. >> reporter: the bombshell verdict in the superstar trial that captivated the world with johnny depp and amber heard suing each other for defamation. the jury finding both were defamed but that heard could not substantiate her claims of abuse.
7:42 am
>> do you find that mr. depp has proven all the elements of defamation? answer, yes. >> reporter: depp won all three of his libel claims centered around a 2018 "washington post" op-ed in which heard described herself as a public figure representing domestic abuse. the jury awarding him more than $10 million in compensatory damages along with $5 million in punitive which was later reduced to $350,000. it follows six weeks of explosive testimony with millions watching live. >> it could begin with, you know, throwing a tv remote at my head. it could be throwing a glass of wine in my face. >> he had a broken bottle up against my face, neck area, by my jawline and he told me he'd carve up my face. >> reporter: depp's attorney using audio they said showed heard admitting to starting a fight.
7:43 am
>> i'm sorry i hit you like this, but i did not punch. you i did not [ bleep ] deck you. i [ bleep ] was hitting you. >> reporter: heard's attorney showing video she secretly recorded of depp becoming violent in his kitchen breaking his own cabinets and berating heard. depp denied all of heard's abuse allegations. the jury finding she acted with actual malice. dpp was not in court forr the verdict having performed at a london concert tuesday. but outside his fans erupted fist bumping his attorneys and chanting his name. [ johnny, johnny ] >> reporter: inside heard remained stoic as the judge revealed the decision. the jury did award heard $2 million in damages, saying she was defamed when depp's former attorney called her allegations a hoax. in a statement heard says the disappointment i feel today is beyond words. i'm heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and sway of my ex-husband.
7:44 am
depp posting on instagram, six years later, the jury gave me my life back. i am truly humbled. a new chapter has finally begun. now, some experts say they fear this verdict is going to make it even more difficult for women who have been abused to come forward. but others say amber heard lied repeatedly and if anything, that is what is damaging. heard's attorneys say they plan to appeal. george? >> trevor, thanks very much. let's bring in dan abrams. you sort of called this yesterday, but it's still surprising. >> yeah. look, the things that is surprising in particular is how devastating this verdict is for amber heard. we had talked about the possibility that both could win earlier in the week and it seems that there was a little bit of that. but this was a token verdict win for her. i mean, the win for her is really on the claim made by his attorney at one point that she and her friends had gotten together and cooked up this story, et cetera. okay. so maybe the jurors didn't believe she got together with her friends to do this.
7:45 am
buwhcomes t fundamental allegations at issue in this case, the jurors believed johnny depp and did not believe amber heard and that was surprising to me that he won on all three of the big questions in the case. >> these are considerable damages. so will she have to pay it and what about an appeal? >> first question is can she pay it, right? i mean, this is a $10.35 million verdict against her. we'll see if, a, it survives appeal. yes, there will be an appeal. one of the key issues that happens in defamation cases is that very often damages awards get reduced. even if you don't win the appeal, even if you don't get a new trial, very often damages do get brought down. she's got to be pushing for that very hard here because if she doesn't have the money, there are going to be fundamental questions about does she file for bankruptcy. would bankruptcy even protect her when you're talking about
7:46 am
this kind of tort? it's possible that the bankruptcy court would say, sorry, you can't eliminate this kind of debt. so there are a lot of issues we'll have to see from here with regard to what happens with those damages. >> it's important to remember at the heart of all this was that op-ed that was supposed to be on ne to remind folksth'sot-- that not what the jury was weighing. >> absolutely not. it is fair to say there may be domestic violence victims who are more concerned about coming forward as a result of this case, but this case was about amber heard and the jury believed she was lying. that's different. >> thanks, dan. we appreciate having you here. we'll be right back, everybody. stay with us. ♪ safer you drive, the more you save like rachel here how am i looking? looking good! the most cautious driver we got am i there? no keep going how's that? i'll say when now? is that good? lots of cars have backup cameras now you know

what we're watching, look at that intent of cancun. that's that center of circulation developing. now it's getting shear from the middle of the gulf but it's going to take a southern path and we'll have strong winds by about 7:00 in the evening, already moving across key west and getting to the west coast of florida and naples. we talked about the rain. let me show you the windfield. as it whips 30 to 50-mile-per-hour gusts through the tip of florida the winds will be strong but the rain is likely to be the most damaging and we're really concerned about that flooding rain that will come through with the storm. so it's a fashion mover. it moves across the coast and exiting by the time we get into sunday morning. things are clearing out actually but look at the rain rates. from two to three inches in central florida to three to six across the northern part of south florida. but from naples to key largo it could be six to ten inches and i need to get you ready for the kind of flooding that can happen with that kind of rain in a short period of time. quick look at the country. it is gorgeous in chicagoland. that's the weather around the nation. here's what you can expect this morning.

70's and 80's this afternoon. reggie: we will have another news update in about 30 minutes. you can always catch us on our news app and >> announcer: welcome back to "gma" live from times square and london. ♪ and we are celebrating the queen's jubilee from here in times square. there you see it. this morning, of course, we are celebrating 70 years on the throne for queen elizabeth. >> and we want to go right back to amy and t.j. who are in the heart of it all right outside buckingham palace. how is it going, guys? >> reporter: oh, it is going fabulous. i mean, it has been such an honor to be here in london this morning right in front of buckingham palace for queen elizabeth's platinum jubilee. yes, we're all celebrating her 70 years on the throne. this has never happened before in the uk. we are literally watching history unfold this morning for
8:31 am
the first time. the prince of wales joined by prince william and princess anne were all on horseback taking on what would have been the queen's role at horse guards parade. the 96-year-old queen did not join the procession as she has in years past due to mobility issues. we saw her come out on that balcony and she received a salute from her soldiers. that was another first, but you could also just see the joy in her eyes, the smile on her face when she took in all the pomp and circumstance. >> reporter: and some even argue, look, this was first time we have seen on this scale the jubilee in the past few years because of covid so to have this come back in a much bigger way, some even argue that you know it felt better, it felt right to have her come out on the balcony and have that one moment. she's certainly the star of the show today but if there is a star 1a, it was probably louis, her great grandson, who was up there his first time -- the kids are riding in the carriage, the
8:32 am
first time we have seen this, you had george, charlotte and little louis. there he is on the balcony when the whole family came out, the working royals that were up there. he was chatting it up with his great grandmother and he was just having the time of his life. you're seeing the crowds there. this was really, really something to see. robes, we talked about this. we got chills. this was the air force flyover. bigger than it's ever been before. >> reporter: that was the grand finale. we were shaking, our studio, as we saw the magnificent planes and helicopters fly over. there's that 70. wow. that was a big crowd pleaser for the queen herself and for louis, we were watching him watch this incredible display of power and force and precision flying right over buckingham palace and the conversation that was going on between queen elizabeth ii and her great grandson louis was just adorable to watch. was it not? >> reporter: again, from every moment, you all, this has been -- we were just talking a
8:33 am
moment ago. this has been -- you could call this military precision. every moment we have seen today, they have been doing this, of course, for literally centuries here, but this is like something we've never seen before and they've been out of practice over the past few years, the horses have been out of practice. the members of the military -- and we had this note, there is such precision that some members of the military were carrying radios with them and in a discreet fashion. you couldn't see them but they had everything down to the second. every step was planned. everything today has been precise. but to lead to this moment -- and, robes, you see her there, this was when we saw her smile the pose and looked like she was really enjoying herself. 96 years old and going strong and this is all about service. >> reporter: you know who else was enjoying themselves? the crowds. the thousands of people who came from all around the world to witness history in the making to cheer on and celebrate queen elizabeth ii. james longman was there among the crowd watching it all. tell us what it's been like for
8:34 am
you this morning, james. >> reporter: amy, it's been extraordinary. you know, it made me so proud to be british more than anything else. after all the sadness the last couple of years because of covid, the union jacks are flying and the opportunity to celebrate service as you said and today people have been able to connect with military service men and women. here's jim, a veteran. how good to meet you. you are famous. what has it meant to be here? >> it's been fantastic and seen the whole trooping the colour, the crowds have been just wonderful. we must have had our photograph taken about -- >> all these people are lining up wanting to take your pictures. pull the cameras out. [ cheers ] desperate for a photograph of you and you've got a special thing to show us. one of the new medals. >> this is the platinum jubilee medal which has been awarded to all those with five years service in the military and in emergency services -- police, fire brigades, ambulances as well. today this is the first day
8:35 am
we've been allowed to wear it. >> what an honor. such an honor to speak to you. thank so much. >> thank you. >> go get some of these pictures. >> we will. >> where is that young man? up here. >> got you. there we go. >> reporter: and that's just -- james, thank you. that's just a taste of what we have been seeing the past several days. these crowd, thousands out here but they have been lining this mile down here as they call it for days. some people camping out trying to get the best stop they could. we've met a bunch of folks over the past couple days. many americans who visit london anyway, we were surprised at how many we ran into said i wasn't just here on vacation. i came specifically for the queen's jubilee. >> reporter: it was really cool to see people from america, people from all around the world to celebrate the queen. no one had a front see quite like maggie rulli. she is right on the ground. kind of near us right outside buckingham palace. tell us what you've been witnessing. >> reporter: hey, amy and t.j.,
8:36 am
we do. we have a front row seat. we are here with a crowd and i love it. everyone decked out in their flags and stuffed animal corgis and angela flew here all the way from vermont. you mentioned those americans. we met some of them in the crowd. this is a moment -- amy, you said it before. it is historic. it is unforgettable but what's amazing is that for people that have made this trip, they say they want to witness history and that's exactly what we saw today. celebrating 70 years on the throne. everyone we speak to says the same thing. they're here for the queen. they are here to celebrate. they are here to embrace their country. guys, i have to say it's been incredible to witness. but, t.j., you are also right because, yes, the queen was the star but that star 1a, little prince louis he came past us in the carriage and gave that wave. i mean, my heart just melted. that was by far the cutest surprise of the day. so we have just been living life down here, guys. >> reporter: you know what, like a lot of folks who may be seeing this for the first time, you can't help but get those chills.
8:37 am
i think louis who is enjoying this for the first time, being out there on the balcony with the family, he genuinely looked like he was enjoying this for the first time and taking all this in. yes, he is the young one, he's 4 waving and having a good old time but you're right, robes. n the balcony, he was something. the cutest moment to see him and his great grandmother just kind of chatting it up like family and not royals. >> reporter: they're just like us, t.j. >> reporter: right, i hear that. >> reporter: well, this is just day one, by the way, of the jubilee we should point out. there is a lot more in store including the lighting of the beacons tonight, the queen will light the principal beacon prosecutor windsor which will kick of a spectacle bigger than ever, hard to imagine but deb roberts has the details. deb, tell us what we can expect. >> reporter: okay, amy. well, first of all i have to tell you & t.j., maybe maggie and james are down amongst the crowd but i'm practicing my wave here with our crowd because folks are starting to file out of the area and they are festive
8:38 am
as you've seen and really happy. so we're having a great time up here too even though we're a little distant from the crowd. but as amy said, yeah, the beacon light ceremony will be happening today. it's fascinating because that was something that was used a warning during war times and - aggression but now it's become something celebratory, the beacon lighting. so it's going to start tonight, continuing on with the celebration as you say. the queen is going to light that initial beacon in windsor. she's going to lead buckingham palace and head back to windsor where she makes her home and throughout the 54 commonwealth nations, there will be more lights tonight, about 3,000, we're told and a lot of private lighting ceremonies. you can think of it as almost a torchlighting ceremony and it will be complete with trumpets and all kinds of pomp and circumstances the british do so well. then it'll wind up back here at buckingham palace where william will light the torch as well. so as you said, more to come even though things are starting
8:39 am
to quiet down here a little bit. but this party is really just getting jumping and i think tonight with that beacon lighting ceremony right after dark, it's just going to continue on through the night. amy, t.j.? >> reporter: okay, deb. deb, you got to let us see it one more time. let us see that wave. >> reporter: ah, she's got it down. >> reporter: she's done this before. >> reporter: there you have it. >> reporter: deb, thank you so much. we head back to new york now. look, there's a lot of -- we cover so much day in, day out. there's a lot going on in the world that unfortunately we do have to cover but this is a moment. certainly for this nation to stop, to honor, to celebrate and it is a nationwide celebration and showing really a love for this particular woman who has been so much a part of generations now in this country. >> reporter: yeah. the celebration like we've never seen before, and like no one has seen before in this country. guys, we send it back to you. >> looks like you're having so much fun. terrific celebration. a lot more coming up.

8:46 am
the first time in her reign that she's done that. very special to see her up there surrounded by her family. kind of all the more special because a lot of us were holding our breath for this moment. i was at a briefing at buckingham palace just a few weeks ago and they were very open. they said to us, you know, we're not going to be able to tell you exactly when the queen is appearing at this jubilee. last minute, maybe even on the day itself and it wasn't until last night that we were told she is going to be there. she is going to be on the balcony. so to see her at the center of these celebrations on the first day i think just it feels very special. >> it feels special to the public. what does it feel like -- what is it like for the soldiers to take that moment? they are serving queen and country. >> this is an incredible moment for the military. trooping the colour is a ceremony that really emphasizes the formal link between the sovereign and the military. the sovereign is head of the armed forces and i think the queen is very mindful of the symbolism she brings and what that kind of means to the military families.
8:47 am
but also i think for her it's personal because let's remember she served in the military in the second world war. she was also married to a naval officer, prince philip, who was a naval officer. vry poignant he is not here today and, of course, her children and grandchildren in the military as well. >> well, victoria murphy, we appreciate you walking us through some of the incredible sights and sounds we heard today and there's a lot more to come. >> reporter: a lot more, but we hand it back to you in new york, stray. >> we look forward to what you're bringing shortly. now we go back to sam in miami. hey, sam. >> reporter: good morning, michael. so we had some big storms in texas and oklahoma and some incredible pieces of video. i just want to show you two of them. let me show you accumulating hail near midland area. this was two inches of drive-through hail. that's how crazy the storms were. then we talk about lightning. this was in oklahoma. you can get cloud to ground lightning but you can also get ground to cloud lightning and that's what was firing up there. here's where the storms are rolling during the day to day. you should watch this area as it moves towards the coastline from

woman. when she's not on official duty serving her people, we all know where she can be found, enjoying the simpler things that truly make her happy. when the queen turned 96 earlier this year she shared her official birthday portrait by photographer henry dallal, not with family but with two of her prized ponies. >> when you see her with horses people often say you do see a different side to her. >> reporter: she's often attended equestrian events and races cheering on her horses and her jockeys. >> ryan moore has won for her majesty, the queen. look at the delight here, the sheer joy. >> obviously every jockey gets really excited about putting those royal colors on, riding for the most famous woman in the whole wide world. you feel six inches taller. don't forget, jockeys are
