The traditional display of pomp etc. takes place this morning when the Queen
travels in the State coach to St. Pauls Cathedral for a service of
thanksgiving followed by lunch and a big carnival in The Mall. They have just
siad on the news that there are around 1 million people in the middle of
London waiting for this!
For you on the west side of the Atlantic I understand the Empire State
Building in New York will be lit in a special way later today.
Actually today is the actual Jubilee celebration day and the concerts of the
past couple of days were by way of warm-ups!
