The Royal Family are never far from British culture and lifestyle, however in the last couple of years they seem to have grabbed more attention than normal. The highly anticipated wedding of our future king to a “commoner” and now the celebration of 60 years of our Queen’s reign.
The bunting is up, the events are planned and, in keeping with tradition, the weather is not looking promising. The Jubilee weekend is nearly here, an opportunity to celebrate our British heritage, traditions and our Queen. It appears we are playing ball, according to internet searches we are embracing the Jubilee.
My three favourite Jubilee-related campaigns:
- Punks of ’77: Still angry after all these years? (bbc.co.uk)
- Queen’s Diamond Jubilee: The best royal apps (telegraph.co.uk)
- Biggest ever image of the Queen, and she also appears made out of stamps, cheese and BEER (thisislondon.co.uk)
- Should UK abolish its monarchy? (edition.cnn.com)
