The Diamond Jubilee celebrations are in full swing and, despite the general economic blues most countries feel these days, there’s no hint that it has dampened the party spirit in Britain.
It hasn’t hurt that the Brits are getting a few extra days off from work to raise a toast to their monarch, either. Celebrations will continue Monday with a special concert headed by Sir Paul McCartney, and on Tuesday all the regal splendour will be on display with a procession from St. Paul’s to Buckingham Palace, with the Queen taking a symbolic royal bow from the balcony.
There hasn’t been a Diamond Jubilee since Queen Victoria’s in 1897, and it’s likely the world will have to wait even longer for the next one.
Sixty years is a long time in any job. And 60 questions to test your knowledge of the Queen just barely scratches the surface.
In our last of six quizzes (10 questions each) to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, we touch on several areas of the Queen’s life, so lets just call this the variety pack.
