Queens Jubilee!

God, Holidays, Life

Lately, there has been a very exciting event happening in England and the commonwealth. Queen Elizabeth II has been celebrating her Diamond Jubilee! She has been a monarch for 60 years. If she does not pass away in the next four years, she will be the longest reigning monarch in history; competing with Queen Victoria.

It has also been quite a sad time for the Queen because her husband, Prince Philip, is in hospital with a bladder infection. It will hopefully get better!

Another thing we have been celebrating is the Queen’s birthday. Though it was in April, we are celebrating it now with a long-weekend because there were too many long weekends in April. Many people get confused with that.

The Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee by driving past a giant crowd of her eager subjects. She also let everyone see her with her family on the famous Balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The Queen was very lucky to have a sighting of Venus on her royal Diamond Jubilee. She was lucky because it was only once in 100 years that the sighting of Venus would occur.

I hope you have learnt a something about Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee!

  1. Hi Olivia,

    It’s great that you acknowledged such an important historical event. We will never see anything like this again. Did you know that the Queen loves animals too? She has lots of horses and doggies.

    Love, Um xx
