To celebrate the Queen’s 60 year reign as monarch, this month kicked off with an amazing long weekend of Diamond Jubilee celebrations and here at fabulous we had a great time involved in the celebrations wearing our most patriotic jewellery!
There were many celebration highlights, from the BBC Jubilee Concert to the fleet of 1,000 boats along the River Thames, but we were most excited to see what the royals were wearing! The Duchess of Cambridge looked fabulous and all British wearing an all red assemble as she boarded the royal barge – The Spirit of Chartwell -whilst the Queen looked truly majestic all in white, which she of course accessorized with a gorgeous brooch!
In Solihull, the fabulous girls took part in a Jubilee parade dressed in red, white and blue. It was a fantastic day and it was amazing to see how much effort all involved had put into their costumes. There was a chicken from Nando’s, a flower princess from the florist Fleur de Lys, and even Spiderman from Cineworld! The occasion was also marked across the country through Jubilee lunches where Leamington Spa was treated to a Jubilee Tea Party in The Pump Room Gardens.
But as it was a diamond jubilee it was only right for us to wear our crystals! Tresor Paris’ Union Jack Studs were a popular accessory over the weekend and Trollbeads British Colours Charm Bead and Swarovski’s Union Jack Boot Charm were perfect to mark the occasion!
Whilst we have now packed away our bunting, Jubilee fever lives on and so does our enthusiasm for all things British! Not least whilst supporting the England football team in the Euro 2012 tournament and of course during the run up to the London Olympics!
For the first time in 64 years, the Olympic Games are back in the UK! Today’s best athletes will be competing in venues across London in the Olympic Games from the 27th July and in the Paralympics from 29th August -we can’t wait!
But until then, the Olympic torch relay continues and is coming to Leamington and Solihull on the 1st July! So we’ll see you there in your best British accessories!
