The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

“God save our gracious Queen,

Long Live our noble Queen.

God save the Queen!”

This weekend marks our Queen’s 60th anniversary jubilee. I am a great fan of the Queen…through all her years she has maintained her dignity and grace, and has visited her realm many times. The first time I saw the Queen she was wearing yellow, a colour much like this rose. She was much younger then, and a true beauty..

So today, I am assembling my Royal mementos, and having a cup of tea in her honour.

Last week we had our cousins from England with us , and they brought us a mug and cup and saucer from the Royal Yacht Britannia, said to be one of the Queen’s favourite homes away from home. She was very sad when it was de-commissioned a few years ago.

..and a cup from the coronation…(I bought this one at a garage sale!)

The mug with the crossed swords was a souvenir from our visit to the Tower of London.

For tea, I am serving cucumber sandwiches and a lime square on Royal Worcester plates.
