Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Weekend is fast approaching. We will be celebrating 60 years of The Queen’s reign, and the Diamond Jubilee celebrations will be through out the whole 4 day weekend on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June. We are spoilt by choice of exciting events and I will try to give you a round up of some of the popular events in London during the Queen’s Jubilee Weekend. Four days of celebrations will include Thames river pageant, BBC concert at Buckingham Palace, fireworks , carriage procession through London and of course the Queen will be addressing the crowd on the famous balcony. Whether you’ve been able to reserve a spot at any of these or not, there’s plenty of opportunity to get in the Jubilee spirit.
