This coming weekend in the UK we will be celebrating the Queens 60th Anniversary of her taking to the throne. Can you imagine doing hte same job for 60 years! The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.
Here in the UK we have been given a long weekend off to help celebrate this occasion. Lots of events are taking place including
The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant: This event will take place on the Thames and consist of up to 1,000 boats assembled from across the UK, the Commonwealth and around the world. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will travel in the Royal Barge which will form the centrepiece of the flotilla.
BBC Concert at Buckingham Palace: There will be a televised Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons: A network of 2,012 Beacons will be lit by communities and individuals throughout the United Kingdom, as well as the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the Commonwealth.
Now I've decided to have a picnic along with a few of my friends and their families too, this is what I'm hoping my picnic will look like
Do you have any plans? Will you be spending it with family and friends at all?
What ever you do this weekend I hope you have a lovely time and you all really enjoy yourselves.
