For many of us, 2012 is a year where we can be proud to be British and you can’t get much bigger than celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in London. To mark the occasion, a host of events will be taking place across the UK and in other Commonwealth countries but London
is certainly the place to be to celebrate the 60 year reign of our Queen.
The central weekend celebrating The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee takes place from Saturday 2nd June until Tuesday 5th June 2012 and features an extra Bank Holiday for the Diamond Jubilee. The Queen will be attending the Epsom Derby
on 2nd June followed by the The Big Jubilee Lunch
on 3rd June. The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant
will also take place on Sunday featuring over 1000 boats on The Thames with The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh travelling in the Royal Barge.
The BBC Concert at Buckingham Palace
takes place on Monday 4th June 2012 with tickets being available to UK residents by public ballot. Don’t worry though, if you can’t get tickets, you can still see the concert on TV at home or on the big screens in Hyde Park. This is followed by The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons
where a network of 2,012 Beacons will be lit by communities across the UK
. The Queen will be lighting the national beacon at approx. 22.30 (GMT) at a central location in London.
The Diamond Jubilee Weekend will culminate on Tuesday 5th June 2012 with a day of celebrations in London. The processional route
with The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales (Prince Harry) in attendance will start at Westminster Hall and finish with a balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace followed by a flypast.
