The National celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend include a number of events including a star-studded pop concert, a carnival pageant and the lighting of thousands of beacons across the world.

The Queen is said to be looking forward to the ambitious commemorations, which have been years in the making.

Proudly sharing a clip of the flags, Stephen James wrote: “How amazing does Regent Street look?

“All streets should be looking like this, all the time.”

But account Laurence Unboxed compared it to a picture of a display of swastikas, describing it as “strongly reminiscent of this”.

He added: “Our royals actually are Germans and until 1917 what is now called the House of Windsor was called the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

“So perhaps it’s not so much of a surprise to find the jubilee being celebrated in this way.

“It looks plain silly to me. It’s invariably true that peoples who feel compelled to advertise their patriotism have the least to be proud of.

“Shameful, frankly, and historically highly unpalatable. Besides, the Union flag has become a symbol of Brexit and hence ignorance, racism and stupidity.

“Rip van Brexit: Went to sleep in the first Nuremberg rally in 1923 and awoke 99 years later to this.”
