|The Liberation Monument|
One of the few TV programmes I manage to catch here in Stanley is that lovely dry spoof of the preparations for the London Olympics, "2012", and one episode centred round the realisation by senior planning staff that there was something else happening in London this summer - the Queen's Diamond Jubilee!
So the creative types came up with a name for the combined celebrations - "The Jubilympics!"
|No shortage of bunting in Stanley, although too chilly for street parties.|
As this might be the last "big" anniversary to be celebrated (at least for some time), there is a lot going on, and many war veterans are re-visiting the islands this year.
|"Red, white and blue...What does it mean to you?"|
|Boudicea and a Freddie Mercury|
|Queen Bee - Best Costume award|
|Superman, WonderWoman and a more traditional dancer.....|
|Some of these costumes will be back on the flagpole tomorrow!|
|Two Sisters, with snow covering|
|It must be cold if these guys have coats on!|
If you don't support the UK Monarchy, you could always find a copy of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and enjoy that Queen, instead.
