Fun Friday

This past Monday marked the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the British throne. Relive history and watch this video of the announcement of her becoming Queen back on February 6, 1952.

I'm going to be on the lookout for some Diamond Jubilee memorabilia!

  1. I love all the formality and the pomp, I think we've lost a bit of that these days.

    1. You can always count on the British for formality and pomp! They're the best in the world at it (in my opinion).

  2. Elspeth - Oh, how lovely! Thanks for sharing. Although this took place in 1952, it reminds me of your wonderful "Thirties Thursday" feature. It's so interesting and fun to see the way people lived in a different time...

  4. Wow - amazing to see that and to realize how long ago it was - because it doesn't seem like it should be SO long ago.
