 It is a Cold Wet day in London..but lack of Sunshine did NOT hamper the festive mood along the River Thames, as possible Millions came out to celebrate this Historical day. I told my daughter yesterday, Not even You will witness a Diamond Jubilee ever enjoy the event as Much as I will...MY DVR is in heavy overload!!!

What fun to watch a happy event. I'm getting ready for the Olympics. Can't wait to see them! Kate looks gorgeous in her red outfit, but she looks lovely in just about anything.
