16th December- Remember The Jubilee Flotilla?
Today, our ‘Year to Celebrate’ app celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Flotilla.
It rained, and it rained, and it rained. This didn’t put off the masses of crowds hitting London to watch the Jubilee Flotilla spectacular. Over a million people turned up to celebrate the Queens Jubilee, and cheer on the largest flotilla on the Thames for 500 years! The Queen and her family stood for almost the entire procession, and the hour and twenty minute pageant ended with fireworks from Tower Bridge. Truly magical!
Outtakes: Our last celebration of a ‘Boris moment’ comes from his quote regarding beach Volleyball in the Olympic.
He wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “They are glistening like wet otters and the water is plashing off the brims of the spectators.” Easy, Boris.
