The logo is a crown topped with 70, charmingly the zero line then is unbroken as it traces the crown!
The lead up to the Trooping of the Colour proved yet again what masters of pomp & ceremony the Royal Family are. First the beautiful barouches & carriages carrying the Royals to the palace to view the ceremony.
Then Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Anne, The Princess Royal arriving on horseback to review the troops.
The parade of troops, impeccably turned out & the pagentry of their parade -exquisite! Finally the balcony, where all working Royals gather to watch the fly past. This was simply stunning!
The final celebration on day one was the lighting of the beacons. With a symbolic touch of the Commonwealth Globe of Nations, which was placed on a podium, the Queen set off a chain of lights leading to the Principal Beacon outside Buckingham Palace.
The primary beacon takes the form of a sculpture dubbed the “Tree of Trees,” which stands 70 ft. tall in honor of the Queen and her astonishing 70 years on the throne. It is made up of 70 potted mini trees, which will be planted across Great Britain after the Jubilee.
Thousands of beacons were then lit across the Commonwealth in honor of Her Majesty.
Day two began with a service at Saint Paul’s cathedral celebrating the Queens reign. The procession into the packed cathedral saw the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge walking ahead of the heir, Prince Charles & his wife (future Queen Consort) Camilla.
The dastardly duo, Harry & his wife, were actually booed upon arrival and were seated with the other insignificant or obscure members of the royal family.
After the service was a lovely reception hosted by the Mayor of London at the Guildhall. All of the royals and guests attended except the Clown Prince of MonDeceito & the DuchAss of Sussex. (Their absence was Much to the relief of the rest of the family I am sure!)
Saturday, Day 3 of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee saw the Cambridge’s, along with George & Charlotte, in Wales! Princess Anne represented The Queen in Scotland at the Epsom races, Prince Edward & Sophie went to Ireland. Then it was time for The Platinum Party at the Palace!
The Queen is represented by thirty members of the royal family tonight but she, herself, opened the festivities with a prerecorded video which was absolutely adorable!
Day four was a gallop through time, celebrating each decade of the Monarch’s life. There were open top buses with celebrities from each decade, floats, the Golden Carriage had a holographic image of the young Queen waving to crowds after her coronation. Then one final balcony appearance for Her Majesty & her heirs – Prince Charles, Prince William & Prince George.
After leaving the balcony Her Majesty released the following statement:
When it comes to how to mark 70 years as your Queen, there is no guidebook to follow. It really is a first. But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my platinum jubilee. While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family. I have been inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship that has been so evident in recent days, and I hope this renewed sense of togetherness will be felt for many years to come. I thank you all most sincerely for your good wishes and for the part you have all played in these happy celebrations.
