God Bless Ye Ma’am!

It’s on days like to today that I feel proud to be British. The Queen marked the coming of the end of the Royal Jubilee weekend with a ceremony full of pomp and traditions steeped in history.

Following on from the spectacle of the Thames Pageant on Sunday and last night’s Jubilee Concert, millions turned out in London and across the country (and the Commonwealth) to get a glimpse of her Majesty and her family as they travelled from Westminster to Buckingham Palace down the Union Jack-lined Mall. After they entered the Palace the crowds were set free to fill the Mall resulting in an amazing sight of a sea of people all cheering and waving their red, white and blues.

This Diamond Jubilee is only the second in British history, with the Queen now joining Queen Victoria in the Diamond ranks. What a wonderful way to celebrate such a remarkable person and a woman who has literally given her life to her country. God Bless ye Ma’am! You are, and always will be, a National treasure! Hip Hip Hooray!
