At a street party for the Platinum Jubilee last weekend!
A Street Party for the Platinum Jubilee
How lucky am I that there was a place in St. Louis celebrating the Platinum Jubilee this weekend?!?
The party started with “God Save the Queen” (of course), and I was more than happy to sing along! After that, a piper played “Diu Regnare,” which was written by Stuart Liddell for the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee.
In addition to enjoying a cup of “Jubilee Tea” (an Earl Grey with extra citrus created by the London Tea Merchant for the Diamond Jubilee in 2012), we also sampled a scone with clotted cream and strawberry preserves:
We had the opportunity to watch some Scottish dancers:
There was a great festive atmosphere!
I spent a long time choosing just the right outfit (and hat!) for the event:
I’m so glad we had an opportunity to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee right here in St. Louis!
