Diamond Jubilee

Yesterday it was Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend in Britain and more than a million people lined the Thames to pay tribute to the Queen.

The Diamond Jubilee celebrates 60 years of the Queen's reign and  many different activities will be held all over the country to celebrate it.

But the Queen's sovereignty stretches more than just the United Kingdown, Elisabeth II is the head of the Commonwealth, and during her reign the Queen has visited every one of its countries  (with the exception of Cameroon, which joined in 1995 and Rwanda which joined in 2009), and made many repeat visits.

This is an important date for all British people around the world, so let's join their celebration, God Save the Queen!
