12 June 2012: Soaked Up the Jubilee Atmosphere!

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration in London has been over a week now. I went out with a friend on 3rd June (Monday) to feel and to soak ourselves into the happy and jubilee atmosphere! It was very fascinating to see how both British and all other nations celebrated in this memorable occasion. The weather was not good though throughout the 4 days (long weekend) celebration. However it didn't stop the people from going out and be part of it. On that Monday it was considered much better than the day before although it was a few interval dazzling rain. Anyway lucky me was able to snap a few nice photos, with a lovely rainbow too ^ ^   enjoy :) 

 

1) Commonwealth Contries' Flag with Big Ben and London Eye at the back

 

2) Commonwealth Flags

 

3) Spotted a girl dancing with the Queen's face mask by waiving the Union Jack flag (oh! she carried an Union Jack tote bag too) [FYI - beautiful classical music was played in the background from the street speakers]

 

4) How people took on the Union Jack ~ creative and sweet ^O^

 

5) Union Jack balloons in the air... and the flying Union Jack flag at the top of the Parliament builing!

 

6) People are walking towards Buckingham Palace to join the Big Concert of the day!

 

7) Lovely rainbow spotted at Piccadilly Circus!

 

And... last but not least, I would like to share with you the theme song of this Diamond Jubilee "Sing", composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow. This song was performed by the Military Wives with Gareth Malone and musicians from across the Commonwealth including the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force Band, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Slum Drummers from Kenya's Kibera slum, African Children's Choir and many more. More info click here. Nice job G Barlow & A Webber. I really love the song and hope you enjoy it too!!

Oh please do share your experience and photos if you happened to be there too or in any events during the Jubilee celebration, in any commonwealth countries!!

 

Love & Kisses,
