Although we in the Netherlands have our very own fantastic head of state in Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, I have nothing but respect and admiration for Queen Elizabeth II. Right now she is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, which means she's been head of state for the past SIXTY years! It's incredible how she's still going strong after all those years, with so much grace and so much strength. She's a true icon.
Today was the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, a parade of over a thousand ships along the Thames in London. I saw this picture on Daily Mail's website and think it perfectly captures the spirit of all the celebration plus it's a beautiful photo with three generations of royal women.
Tomorrow there'll be a fantastic Diamond Jubilee Concert in front of Buckingham Palace with the most amazing line-up (think Elton John, Jessie J, Annie Lennox and Kylie Mingoue). Don't forget to tune in !
