Although her actual birthday is in April, HMQEII celebrates it in June, when the weather’s bound to be much better. One of the things I loved about living in the UK was that the country celebrates special occasions together, like the opening of the Olympics in 2012, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee the same year.
Everyone gets involved and it really brings the whole country together. Here are some of the celebratory events I’ve found. In addition to charming events, the posters are wonderful!
I have the Union Jack bunting hanging on my front porch, and although my Appalachian-American neighbour objects strenuously, (he keeps telling me that I am Amurican and I should fly the Amurican flag!) I am keeping it up until at least next week!
Cheers, your Majesty!
