June 4, 2012 – Queen Elizabeth Celebrates 60 Years on the Throne Braving a day of bone-chilling, rain-dampened weather, a crowd estimated by the police at more than a million people lined the banks of the Thames on Sunday to acclaim Queen Elizabeth II as she marked 60 years on the throne with a royal river pageant of a kind last seen 350 years agoPictured above, Venetian artist Canaletto’s painting of 1747, “The Thames (pictured below) on Lord Mayor’s Day.” Organizers had the painting in mind when they planned Sunday’s jubilee flotilla.

With a TV audience of tens of millions at home and abroad, commentators called it the greatest public spectacle of the queen’s reign. It added something to the occasion that the royal family’s vessel was the Spirit of Chartwell, named for the family home of Sir Winston Churchill. Historians said only his funeral procession, along the Thames in 1965, came close to matching Sunday’s crowds.  Follow the link below for the complete story.

  1. I loved your post!! I saw the queen on television, and I wish I could have been there in person. Wow! Can you imagine being crowned at the age of 26 yrs. old? That is a huge responsibility, she must be amazing.

    May the queen rule another 10 years in good health. I wish Prince Philip a full recovery.
