As summer finally arrives the whole of Britain prepares to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee commemorating her 60 years on the throne. When she first became Queen in February 1952 Britain still ruled a vast Empire, Winston Churchill was Prime Minister and The Loveliest Night of the Year by Mario Lanza was topping the charts. How times have changed! Across the land bunting will fly, Union Jack flags will be in abundance and street parties will go on till the early hours. In this time of austerity the Jubilee is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate Britain and show the world our culture and history.
