Queen's Diamond Jubilee

 Sunday 2nd June
This was the first day of the celebrations when most parties were and it was the day that over 1000 boats went down the river Thames lead by the Royal Barge with the Queen and close family on it. They were sailing for most of Sunday afternoon in the miserably weather but that didn't stop people from coming to the Thames to see the boat parade.

 Monday 3rd June
On the evening of Monday 3rd June it was the Jubilee Concert which had been organised by Gary Barlow and it stared loads of musicians old and young. They included Jessie J, WILL.I.AM, Madness, Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder, JLS, Robbie Williams, Cheryl Cole, Madness and Paul McCartney.
Even when they had a gap in the middle of the show they got Rolph Harris up singing '2 little boys had 2 little toys'. He unfortunately needed to be cut off because Stevie Wonder was ready.
Gary Barlow performed his Diamond Jubilee song 'Sing' with the Commonwealth Band.
The highlight of the night for me was Madness singing on the roof on Buckingham palace. They sung 'Our House' and 'It must be love'. Although it was dark when they were singing they amazed the crowd by projecting images on the the whole front of Buckingham Palace turning it into a bunch of council houses.
Paul McCartney ended the wonderful night singing various Beatles songs. Then Prince Charles made a speech about the Queen, her 60 year reign and people who helped make the night a success.

Tuesday 4th June
On the Morning the Queen went to St. Paul's Cathedral.
