Happy 60th Diamond Jubilee, Your Majesty!
June 2012 marks the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth 2nd being on the throne of England. With the utmost respect for this truly amazing woman, I would like to pay homage to Queen Elizabeth's 60 years of unstinting devotion to her country and its people. Most of Britain is celebrating her incredible and enduring reign with street parties up and down the land. How I so wish I could be there as well!!
The Mail Online has some fantastic images of the celebrations, and of people enjoying themselves against a backdrop of red, white and blue.
You can also view some spectacular images of the Royal Jubilee Pageant held along the Thames River here.
The image of the tiara below is part of a set of tiaras on a tea towel that I bought in England as a Jubilee souvenir. It cost a modest £1.20 from Primark and I haven't wanted to use it yet, as it is so special.
