This postcard of Princess Elizabeth has been always there in my oldest postcard album., From The BBC recently I saw this ...
A "nationwide celebration" will be held to mark The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the government has announced. Events to mark The Queen's 60 years on the throne will take place in the first weekend of June 2012, with an extra bank holiday being created."
I have seen pictures of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. That was very big.
For Queen Elizabeth the local council are making plans. At a street level, street parties have become popular again, so there could well be a lot of street parties. Whatever happens, it is good that people want to part of a local community again. Whatever the reason.
