The Jubilant spirit is heating up, along with the weather! Besides being extremely excited that we get a 4-day weekend, celebrating the Queen and her 60 years in rein is rather exhilarating. Deciding where to watch the 7 mile long flotilla of boats down the Thames, the grandest event to ever be hosted on the River Thames, is tricky one. Every riverside bar and spacious patch will be packed. This website (click here) has few suggestions.
The Queens procession in her ornate, amazingly over-the-top carriage, down the Mall is what we are looking forward to the most. The Golden Jubilee 10 years ago was such a great fun weekend full of Street party’s, the incredible fly past (that included 27 aircraft from the Royal Air Force and a Concorde from British Airways) and seeing the Queen herself. This time around it will be even more wonderful; A Swordfish bi-plane, the only one of its kind still flying, is to lead a “Diamond Nine” flypast of Royal Navy helicopters - excitement!! And, Her Royal Majesty’s carriage will have to out do her last one..!
