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!
