'Trooping the Color' in London for Queen's Official Birthday

Elizabeth said that during recent visits to meet victims she had been struck by the inclination of people to offer comfort and support.

Queen Elizabeth II marked her official birthday Saturday by saying Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester.

The Queen has hailed the United Kingdom for being "resolute in the face of adversity" after three terror attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire.

The head of state said a saddened country was showing resolve in the face of adversity and a determination to rebuild lives wrecked by "terrible" tragedy.

"United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss", she said.

The meeting is unlikely to quell complaints that May has been slow to reach out to fire survivors, despite her announcement of a $6.4 million emergency fund to help displaced families.

Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard. "Government and ministers will cooperate fully", she said.


The Times newspaper headline "May takes cover" also used a sub-heading "Police protect PM as Grenfell death toll rises".

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

She stood for a minute's silence at the start of her birthday parade 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".

Some 30 people have been confirmed dead as a result of the blaze, though the actual number is expected to end up much higher, with scores of people still missing.

Public anger was mounting as residents and neighbours demanded answers for how the blaze spread so quickly amid reports that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior panelling in a renovation of Grenfell Tower that ended in May 2016. Britain's Press Association says around 70 people are missing.

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