 The Queen and the whole Royal Family…looked on in amazement…

 The Wisdom of Chartwell…looking mighty ‘Dandy’ in this picture.

 The Motorboats…representing the Commonwealth.

 Tower Bridge being lifted in honour of the Queen…

 Standing oh soooo Proud!

Happy’s colourful decorations!

 …and Max…celebrating on his back as usual! lol!

 Hello Ma’am….you are a Diamond!

 What a wonderful spectacular!

 Happy faces all around!

 Getting ready for The Royals return.

 ‘Big up Blighty’ is Rife!

 Even in the rain…us Brits love a Royal Knee’s up!

 and to top all the Pomp and Pagentry…

 It doesn’t get better than this!

Wherever you were…we hope you had a fantastic…BIG UP BLIGHTY Diamond Jubilee Weekend!We had a smashing time! Parties…indoor barbecues! lol!

    Loved it all! Found myself wiping a tear or two as The Queen stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. When I think of her taking the throne at age 25!?! Amazing!

    The Brits know how to do a party. I enjoyed the jubilee so much here on the other side of the pond. I had the Union Jack flag in front of my home for the festivities here in Omaha, NE USA.
