  • A cloud the shape of Great Britain formed above Clifton Suspension Bridge
  • The cloud added to the patriotic mood of the country celebrating the Jubilee
  • It floated majestically, bathing in golden sunlight above the River Avon in Bristol
  • Even the UK weather has joined in on celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The UK is in a patriotic mood as the country celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and it seems even the weather has decided to back Britain.  

As bunting fluttered from every nook and cranny and Brits enjoyed Jubilee street parties, a cloud the shape of Britain formed over one the most iconic pieces of architecture in the country. 

Photographer Robert Browne captured the remarkable moment a cloud formed the perfect outline of the Great Britain over Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge.

He said: ‘I thought it looks a bit like Great Britain. It’s a very strange coincidence.

Even the weather has stepped up a notch and got in a patriotic mood for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The cloud was shaped like Great Britain and floated majestically above the River Avon and Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol

The beautiful sight was captured this afternoon, just hours before Prince Charles and Prince William will take centre stage in front of a crowd of 22,000 to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II during a star-studded Jubilee concert in London

‘It’s almost like all the stars have come into an alignment just before the Jubilee. It’s an odd and strange coincident.’ 

The bridge was built over the River Avon by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1864 and was the setting for the weather’s graceful entrance into this weekend’s glorious celebrations.

The cloud shone gold in the afternoon sun, watching over England’s pleasant pastures as the Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne.

The majestic cloud is unlikely to upstage the 96-year-old monarch, who became Queen in 1952 at the age of 25 after the death of her father George VI.

The father and son – both future kings – will speak separately in honour of the monarch towards the end of the BBC’s open-air Party at the Palace show, staged in the front of Buckingham Palace on Saturday evening.

Clarence House and Kensington Palace announced both Charles and William would address the crowds at the high profile event, which falls on the third evening of the four-day Jubilee festivities. 

Despite the event not starting until 8pm, royal fans began arriving at The Mall from 8am to get the best spot.
