Carrie was in Kingston on Saturday, joining the Trowlock Island Armada on the Thames with friends:

Carrie went to a few street parties and ate far too many delicious cocktail sausages and cake:

Street Party in the rain in Perrymead Street, Fulham
Eleonore made it to the Diamond Jubilee Concert, standing room only in the Mall, with a quarter of a million others! Everyone was really friendly and those around her felt so proud to be British.
When the Queen arrived, an hour into the Concert, she was surprised that those around her started singing a spontaneous and beautiful "God Save the Queen" - a really moving moment. All the acts were great, especially Madness on the roof with their amazing dressing of Buckingham Palace, but really it was the three legendary musicians: Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder that got the crowd going, singing the old favourites. Its probably the last time these greats will all share the same stage - what an honour to see them in the open air in such a setting!

This is definitely a historic event to remember - we'll all be telling our children and grandchildren what an amazing spectacle it was and what a great high we got from being there!
And what about you, what are you favourite moments from the Jubilee?
