I have to do this post today even though I can’t possibly do it justice. I have just got to say how proud I am to be British today!
The Queen had a Jubilee Muster this morning at Windsor Castle and I am absolutely thrilled that two of my friends were in it – one in the RAF band and one marching with the Navy. So proud of both of them!
As you may have heard, Queen Elizabeth is celebrating 60 years on the throne this year (we’ve kept it quiet….) and today was a military occasion in Windsor as part of that. All three services were represented, with plenty of foot-soldiers and bands. There was also a double flypast. Magnificent.
Here’s a couple of photos I’ve garnered from the net today. I wish I could have been there myself but settled for watching it on the BBC instead.
Nobody does pomp like us Brits do pomp!!!
