Its a Diamond year!
The Queens Diamond Jubilee is coming up later this year and lots of people are exited and already preparing for the big day. It will be happening on the 4th of June in 2012 and everyone it looking forward to a star-studded concert including the likes of: Jessie J, Elton John, JLS, Annie Lennox, Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran and Stevie Wonder. The celebration marks the 60 year reign of Queen Elizabth II. The longest reigning monarch is currently Queen Victoria as she reigned for 63 years and 216 days, and if Queen Elizabeth can keep it up for a short while longer, she will be the longest reigning monarch to date!
There was also a competition to see which child could draw the best emblem for the event and a 10 year old girl Katherine Dewar won with this fantastic drawing:
We are all looking forward to the Diamond Jubilee which is now fast approaching!
