Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 60 years. 60 YEARS!!! It’s called a Diamond Jubilee and called for a good old British celebration. Food, drink, street parties, a 1,000 ships strong armada on the Thames, special horse races, an extra day off work and some rain made it the perfect British party. Hip Hip. Hurray.
