These photo's for Flashback Friday were taken in 2002 during the Queen's Golden jubilee. They are a handful of snaps that my Mum took during our day trip into London. We went up to Trafalgar square where we sat on the grass with thousand's of other people and had lunch before we waved to the Queen and prince Philip as they travelled past us in their stunning Golden carriage.
There was also a fantastic carnival that day, the sun was shining and we all had a superb day. I was there with my four kids, one of my best friend's and her kids and My Mum, brothers and a couple of other friends.
The Crowds were huge.
We were joined by the London pearly Kings & Queens. Each London borough has a Pearly King & Queen and its an old tradition that originated at the beginning of the 19th century. Pearly Kings & Queens decorate their clothing with hundreds of pearl buttons and collect money for charities. I always love to spot a pearly King, they look fab!
Please pop over to the lovely Karin over at Cafe Bebe and take a look at the other Flasback Friday entries.
