Diamond Jubilee - UK National Event

I'm an American, so when British people started talking about "Diamond Jubilee" holiday that was upcoming for them. I was very interested, so I researched all about it. Then I thought that everyone would love to know about this cool event on the other side of the pond.

This event is celebrating the Queen's reign which is in its 60th year for 2012! Yes she has been the queen for SIXTY years! WOW! The Queen came to the throne on February 6th, 1952 and her coronation took place on June 2nd, 1953. Her 25th year of reign was in 1977, Silver Jubilee was celebrated for that and for her 50th, Golden Jubilee in 2002. So, in her honor for this year, the celebrations will be centered around an extended weekend on June 2 to 5th, 2012.

And their celebration's events is as follows:

Saturday, the Queen will visit the Epsom horse race.

Sunday, the 4th annual Big Lunch and the Queen will judge who has the best flotillas aka boats in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

Monday, there will be a concert at Buckingham Palace attended by the Queen and the Royal Family which will be on television. And thousands of beacons around the world will be lit in the honor of the Queen's 60th year reign.

Then Tuesday, the Queen and the Royal Family will attend a national service of thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral. A "Diamond Choir" of children from around the UK will sing a special composed song. Then the Royal Family will travel from Westminster Hall to Buckingham Palace by carriage and they will stand on the balcony, watching a RAF plane fly on by marking the end of celebrations.

So what does this mean for Wizard101UK? We shall see! ;)
