Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee is upon us in the United Kingdom. It is a very important celebration in the United Kingdom and one that many people are getting very excited about. The pomp, festival and joy this weekend are going to be very special.
But why is this so special?
The Queen pledged her life to the duty of the country, and Commonwealth when she was 21. At 25, with a young family, her father died and she became the monarch. For the last 70 years she has been the sovereign of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland as well as the figurehead of the Commonwealth. Of course her life is very privileged, but she is a public figure; her actions, behaviour and what she says are always observed. She remains neutral with political opinions, as she is not elected. This is not her role, but she represents the country on the world stage.
So this weekend in the UK we are celebrating with a number of national celebrations. I know people who are going into central London to watch (in the crowds!) but everything is televised. Here is the schedule. But there are lots of local events where communities and neighbours are coming together to have parties.
So what will I be doing?? We are hosting a party at our house for neighbours tomorrow. We have decorated the exterior of the house Red White and Blue and I am just finishing a red, white and blue wreath to put on the front door. I am baking a Jelly and Custard Celebration cake but also 30 cupcakes for a Jubilee Afternoon Tea party at my father’s nursing home. We will be leading the singing on Friday at the nursing home too.
We will also be attending a Beacon event to celebrate the jubilee and a street party in our local village on Saturday AND Sunday! All in all it will be a great weekend and a truly memorable occasion.
