Congratulations to Queen Elizabeth on her Diamond Jubilee! :bouquet: No one does it like the British and these events always seem to captivate the world.

We've had 3 lovely, memorable days celebrating the jubilee.
I've just watched the Queen appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. There were enormous crowds all the way up the Mall and I think she said 'my goodness' when she came out and saw them all. A very human and moving momemt. This was followed by a superb fly-past which included a spitfire! Then the rain arrived - oh to be in England.

Beautiful celebration! I have watched as much as I could on BBC America and then also on NBC, etc.

Maybe Americans are more taken w/the celebration than Brits?

I was hoping to see Mr. Kitchen in the crowd. :wave: I didn't see him.

Sorry that Prince Philip has had to spend much of the celebrations in the hospital, but I hear he's on the mend........

Got to watch some of the celebrations on television here. Many congratulations to Her Majesty! :thankyou:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I was really hoping to see some of the concert live yesterday here -no such luck. It does appear though, that there will be 2 hours of highlights on ABC tonight (Tuesday evening). What a fantastic 4 day celebration!
