During Her Majesty’s speech, she paid tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing. The Queen spoke of how millions of people sat “transfixed” to television screens as Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong touched down on the surface of the Moon.
Following the landing, the Queen hosted the astronauts at Buckingham Palace after their return from the successful mission.

She also added: “While being willing to put past differences behind us and move forward together, we honour the freedom and democracy once won or us at so greater a cost.”
