Queen’s Jubilee Military Muster

We realise we’ve gone a little monarchy mad of late but with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee just 12 days away, it’s hard to contain our excitement. The official celebrations kicked off back in Blighty on Saturday with a mile-long military parade showing off the best of all three armed forces. A spectacle in its own right, the 2,500 men and women that took part were a blaze of color, rigor and top notch British discipline. And by all accounts, the general public were blown away by the affair as the surrounding streets overflowed with Union Jacks and jubilant crowds. Bring on June 2nd!

Here are some of our favorite snaps from the day.

This one made us chuckle… Here’s Queen Silvia of Sweden looking on as King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden snaps some pics on his cell phone. How very modern!
