A Diamond Jubilee

All eyes were on London this past weekend as it celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee. I would have loved to have been there in person, being the sap that I am for all things historical, royal, and British.

Here is a photo of the statue of Queen Victoria on the northeast side of the Victoria Memorial that stands in front of Buckingham Palace. Queen Victoria is the only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee, which she did way back in 1897.
