Queen’s Official Diamond Jubilee Website

 

Official Website of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee: http://www.thediamondjubilee.org

To make sure that our JTCers stay up-to-date with all the latest Diamond Jubilee news we’re dedicating a short blog post to The Queen’s Official Diamond Jubilee website: www.thediamondjubilee.org.

The website was launched on Accession Day and contains lots of interesting information about Her Majesty’s reign and the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

One of our favourite sections is 60 Facts About The Queen. Did you know that the only year The Queen hasn’t made a Christmas Broadcast is 1969?! Discover many more little-know facts about The Queen here.

There is also a page on The Commonwealth. It’s packed full of information of Commonwealth visits and how countries across the Commonwealth will be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. And we’re pretty excited to say that the Jubilee Time Capsule features! Take a look here.

So, for your daily Diamond Jubilee fix, why not pay the site a visit and see what you can learn about Queen, Commonwealth and the Diamond Jubilee.

  1. Good Day Everyone I Believe I was 10 years old in Englewood New Jersey and soon to watch on a black/white TV the Coronation Ceremony from Westminster Cathedral of Elizabeth Mountbatten. I was facinated, transfixed in fact I’m still in respect of things English. I am a Heraldic Artist practicing my craft in Barbados, birthplace of my late Barbadian parents. Currently I also am a member of the Royal Commonwealth Society Barbados Branch and shall attempt to send a photo of our velvet applique banner soon

  2. This is a great idea! Is it true all appropriate entries are accepted and will be posted online? And also- does one have to be part of a SCHOOL, GROUP or just an individual citizen of the commonwealth to take part?

    • Thank you. Yes, all entries are moderated, to make sure that nothing inappropriate is let into the time capsule. Then if the entry is approved it will appear on the Jubilee Time Capsule timeline. And no, you do not need to be part of a school or group to take part, we welcome entries from individuals across the Commonwealth.

  3. I watched the Coronation at Royal Wantstead School, London E11 on a black and white TV. We sat rivverted to the scenes and of course looked forward to the special ‘Coronation Meal’ to be provided. A few months later I sailed off to New Zealand on my own on RMS Rangitoto,a journey of five weeks, and I was only 11 years old. It was in NZ that I saw the queen on her coommonwealth tour.
