On Tuesday the Queen came to visit Richmond Park as a part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations so the bug and I hotfooted it to see her. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with much excitement even though we got showered and hailed on. Local businesses displayed their goods, the deer keepers talked about the park’s beloved inhabitants, beekeepers told us about Richmond Park honey and gardening specialists sold wonderful plants. The crowd was small so we easily squeezed to the front and barricaded ourselves with prams. Fun day altogether and such a once in a lifetime opportunity!
A great little funfair, a beautiful merry-go-round, sadly Freddie went to sleep so no rides.
If you missed the Queen’s portraits by Cecil Beaton at V&A this wonderful exhibition at The Royal Collection called Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration will be as exciting.
