jubilee coolPosted: June 2, 2012
This won’t be the only blog post about the Jubilee this weekend, you simply can’t get away from it.
I have seen London transformed in my work travels this week and I have no doubt the same applies to other cities, villages and towns across the uk. And it is lovely to see.
The coming together of a nation to celebrate something quite remarkable; a sovereign who has reigned for 60 years living her life in the full glare of the public eye.
Undoubtedly difficult at times but she must have seen some amazing things in those 6o years – man on the moon, mobile phones, computers that no longer take up a whole room, her children through to her great grandchildren and much, much more.
Whether you are a supporter of the royals or not (I happen to think they give more to the country than they take), having such an interesting and traditional institution such as a royal family is one of the things that makes britain british.
We aren’t in london for the diamond celebrations this weekend ourselves but we will be watching some of the footage. We went for the golden Jubilee and it was great fun so anyone who does go for the celebrations is guaranteed to enjoy themselves.
Whilst we are not there, we are getting into the spirit of the whole thing – I am sporting my favourite pair of union jack knickers and some us have equally patriotic attire!!
