Diamond Jubilee

It is Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee this year and we are wondering what to do this Jubilee weekend. We might visit Tatton Park, or we might stay local - I'm not sure.  Hubs has hurt his back so it all depends on how he is feeling. We also have the Olympic torch passing through our town this weekend later this month too, so that should be fun.

On Sunday the Queen will travel down the Thames as part of the Diamond Jubilee Pageant, that should be interesting to watch - what a shame we won't be there.

On Sunday 3rd June 2012, over one thousand boats will muster on the River Thames in preparation for Her Majesty The Queen to take part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. 

The formal river procession will be between 2pm and 6pm, starting upriver of Battersea Bridge and finishing downriver of Tower Bridge. The boats will muster between Hammersmith and Battersea and disperse from Tower Bridge to West India Docks. ~ The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

Queen Victoria was our last monarch to make it to a Diamond Jubilee, here is some footage if you're interested :) :

Will you be doing anything for the Jubilee?

    1. Lol, I was thinking of any Brits that might be reading (or even some Monarchist Australians or Canadians). :)

  2. Seems like lots of exciting things are going on in England right now! :o)

  3. Oh and I hope your hubby's back feels better soon, I have back problems too and they are NOT fun.

    1. Thanks, he's pulled a ligament, it's very painful he can't be in work right now.

  4. How neat, I wish I could watch it on TV. I'm sure I'll be able to find it online somewhere :)

    Hope your hubby's back feels better, pulled ligaments are SO painful.

    God Bless,
    Sandra :)

    1. Thanks Sandra, he's feeling a bit better, but very stiff this morning.

      Hope you manage to find the Pageant on TV xx

  5. Plans to picnic on Sunday may now change...ahh! The weather!
