Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall attended a Big Jubilee Lunch on the final day of celebrations marking the Queen's 70 years on the throne.

Millions of people across the UK took part in patriotic street parties, picnics and barbecues, on the fourth and final day of the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

The monarch's eldest son and Camilla joined around 500 other guests for the flagship feast at The Oval cricket ground in south London.

More than 85,000 "Big Jubilee Lunches", of which Camilla is patron, were held around the country - an initiative that began in 2009 to bring communities together.

It is estimated that more than 16,000 street parties were organised.

The Duchess of Cornwall joked that it was easier to cut a cake with a knife - referring to a previous event, where the Queen had to slice one using a sword.

Camilla also said 18 million people around the country were taking part in Big Lunches and street parties on Sunday.

"That's more than the organisers originally expected," said Sky's Madeline Ratcliffe.

"The damp weather is clearly not getting in the way of the celebrations."

Among those in attendance at The Oval were 70 "platinum champions" from the Royal Voluntary Service and celebrity ambassadors for the charity.

Guests saw a 20ft 3D recreation of a Jubilee lunch in felt made by the artist Lucy Sparrow, which was shown off before it is hung at the Grand Entrance of Buckingham Palace later this year.

It features plates of sandwiches, quiche, the new Platinum Pudding, trifle made with lemon and amaretti, scotch eggs and fruit platters.

Meanwhile, the Earl and Countess of Wessex met people creating the "Long Table" on The Long Walk leading up to Windsor Castle.

People sent Sky News pictures of their own parties - from Kent, Essex, Manchester and Middlesbrough among many other destinations.

In Morecambe Bay, an attempt was made to create the longest street party, using 500 tables along the promenade, with 5,000 people sitting at them.

In a park in Preston, more than 10,000 people were expected at a Platinum Jubilee lunch.

More than 650 free meals were given to families on low incomes amid the cost of living crisis.
