The first weekend in June will be a big celebration of Queen Elizabeth. The main event in my view will be the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on Sunday June 3rd, where all kinds of boats will make on of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river.
In Battersea Park near the Thames there will be music and dance, fashion show from the 50′s and a classic car boot sale with collectables from the same period.
There will of course also be tea and cakes for all, and the bakers “Konditor & Cook” will construct a huge portrait of the Queen out of 3,120 cakes (one for each week of her reign).
I would love to be there, but I will have to make do with the TV – and a piece of Jubilee Cake, of course…
