This year of course marks the 60th year of the Queen`s ascension to the throne after the death of her father George VI. A cause for celebration. Until lately, the two other major events happening in London this year have over shadowed this remarkable milestone in Queen Elisabeth reign.. Im talking about the Mayoral elections and the Olympics.
But now Buckingham Palace have finally got round to letting the
world know about the big occasion. That said, I think they still need to give a little more publicity to the festivities. We know there are various events lined up in
connection with the celebration. The grand party however is the Queen`s cruise
on the Thames accompanied by a flotilla of vessels. I hope to be on one of those. Why not? You get to revel on
the Thames and be part of history at the same time. The Buckingham
Palace website has loads of information about the various events planned for the celebration.
