There is an old saying which states that "All roads lead to Rome" but for sure there will be a slightly change in it for 2012. For this year all the roads have been leading to London!
The Queen's Jubilee celebration and the Olympic Games are catching people's attention all around the world. A lot of events and special occasions have been planned to celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, from a very special lunch to the royals at Bucking Palace to street parties all over the UK. The jubilee event honors the 60-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II who is the head of state of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms, such as Canada, Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and Jamaica. The Queen came to the throne on 6 February 1952 but her coronation took place on 2 June 1953. She also celebrated her Silver Jubilee (25 years) in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee (50 years) in 2002.
Born in 1926 in London, she is the daughter of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and like her mother, she also became an icon of her reign and the symbol of the Royal Family, and it's include all the traditions so well kept and appreciated by English so far.
As the one who lives, celebrate; English and all the lucky people, mainly tourists, who will be in London these days will "live" a lot! And to join to all of them, this blog will honor the Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee dedicating all the June posts to British culture.
LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!
