Queen's Diamond Jubilee Anniversary

With all the news coverage being dominated by the adverse weather it seems that a significant milestone in this country could be overlooked today.

Although the main celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubliee will be in June, today actually marks the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. Her great-great grandmother Victoria was the only other British monarch to achieve this milestone - and commemoration, marking as it does the anniversary of the death of her father, George VI.

Hopefully as the weather improves and the months go by, there will be nothing subdued about the events which will be staged for a reign which is the second longest in British history.
