Victory in Europe 70 years ago

After the suicide of Hitler on April 30, news of the imminent surrender of the German troops broke in the West on May 8 1940.

In the  United kingdom more than one million people celebrated in the streets to mark the end of the European part of the war.

In London, crowds massed in Trafalgar Square and walked up the Mall to  Buckingham Palace, where King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by their daughters and Winston Churchill, appeared on the balcony of the palace before the cheering crowds. 

Queen Elizabeth II, (Princess Elizabeth then) and her sister, Princess Margaret  were allowed to wander among the crowds and take part in the celebrations.
