VE Day Celebrations, 8 May 1945. Crowds outside Buckingham Palace, London, waving to the Royal Family standing on the balcony of the palace. The Royal Family made eight appearances during the day, and after dark, Princeses Elizabeth and Margaret, with Guards officers, joined the crowds shouting 'We want the King'.
