The grounds of palace took on the planning of a summer competition as some 12,000 individuals gathered within the gardens for the Prom at the Palace classical concert on one June.

Two days later came the Party at the Palace, wherever the Queen witnessed Sir ballad maker leading a Hey Jude singsong, Dame Shirley Bassey blasting out Goldfinger and, befittingly, the Queen musician Brian could strumming out the anthem on the palace roof.

An calculable a million individuals stuffed the Mall to stare at giant screens and absorb the final merriment.

Musicians were back on the palace roof for the diamond jubilee Concert 10 years later – now Madness – though the riff-raff weren’t allowed back within the gardens, with an enormous stage instead being erected outside palace.

Sir Paul was back once more as was Dame Shirley – now textile out Diamonds are Forever – whereas Sir Elton John, Stevie surprise and throw stick Minogue all performed too.

Over four days of celebrations across the united kingdom, balcony appearances came about, St Paul’s all over again staged a thanksgiving service and therefore the bunting was after all frolicked for a mess of street parties.

Perhaps most unforgettably, on a soggy Sunday a meg rain-soaked folks lined the banks of the stream Thames to watch 1,000 boats sail past.

In a message to nation, the Queen represented the occasion as “a mortifying experience”, adding that she had been “deeply touched” by seeing such a large amount of folks celebrating along.

These ar sentiments the Queen has reiterated during this platinum jubilee weekend of parties, parades and processions – and, one hopes, an entire ton of pudding.
