Thank you Alex!

I'm interested in seeing what this medal looks like as well as in the people that will be receiving it. This is going to be one exciting year for the House of Windsor.

The Queen agrees to cut her diamond jubilee year to six months - Telegraph

While the Queen is, no doubt, pleased that London will host the Olympics, she could be forgiven for cursing the timing. Mandrake hears that the celebrations for the monarch's diamond jubilee will be over in six months.

Don't know where to post this, as the Diamond Jubilee thread has just been locked closed again, so I cannot answer roseroyal, so if the moderators are reading this, perhaps it could be moved to an appropriate place, please.

Plans for the Diamond Jubilee are gradually being released and I've been getting my Royal Windsor Horse Show information through, and can advise forum members that on 3 nights of the Royal Windsor Horse Show, instead of the Tattoo of previous years, a huge celebration of around 1000 horses round the world is to be presented. The Queen and Prince Philip are attending the final performance [i.e. on the third day] and the spectactular is going to be far bigger than 'All the Queen's Horses'.

Press announcements are following,

Alex

Queen's Diamond Jubilee: 500 horses from around the world will put on equine display in Windsor - Telegraph
2 November 2011

Queen's Diamond Jubilee event, May 13 2012:
500 horses from around the world will put on equine display in Windsor

More than 500 horses will be flown to the UK from around the world to put on a spectacular equestrian show for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The pageant at Windsor Castle in May will be the first major event of next year’s celebrations and will feature performers from as far away as Chile and New Zealand to represent countries the Queen has visited on more than 250 State visits.

The TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh, who is an ambassador for the event, described it as “the most wonderful and appropriate celebration” possible for a monarch who is famously passionate about horses.

Among the performers from 16 foreign countries will be Inuits from Canada, cowboys from Oklahoma, presidential bodyguards from India, Cossacks from Russia and Huasos from Chile.

"The World Comes to Windsor" show will take place on May 10, 11 and 13 and will be attended by the Queen on the final night.
It will be broadcast by ITV.

Diamond Jubilee equestrian pageant 'will be mindblowing'

Alan Titchmarsh, Angela Rippon and pageant producer Simon Brooks Ward describe the equestrian "global ceremonial" that will be on show to celebrate the Queen's 60 years as monarch. The horses will be accompanied by 800 human performers including riders, dancers and musicians. Among the participants from 16 foreign countries will be Inuits from Canada, cowboys from Oklahoma, presidential bodyguards from India, Cossacks from Russia and Huaso horsemen from Chile.

Queen's Diamond Jubilee china goes on sale - Telegraph

Queen's Diamond Jubilee china goes on sale

Hand-decorated cups, saucers and plates featuring a blue and gold oak leaf pattern are being made by the same six potteries in Stoke-on-Trent that produced souvenirs for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in April.

The design, which incorporates the national symbols of rose, daffodil and thistle, is based on a dinner service which was first used by Queen Victoria, the only other monarch to celebrate 60 years on the throne. Perhaps surprisingly, it does not make any direct reference to the Diamond Jubilee, other than including the year, 2012.

Instead the tableware closely follows the design of the 144-piece Rockingham Service, which was first used in 1838 at the coronation banquet of Victoria, and is still used at State banquets including the visit of President Obama in May. At the centre of the service is William IV’s coat of arms, which has been specially redrawn for the Diamond Jubilee.

This should perhaps be moved to the Diamond Jubilee thread.

The Sunday Times has an article today which describes the concert which is due to be held for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Golden Jubilee concerts were held within BP gardens and around 12,000 people were able to be accommodated with tickets distributed by public ballot.

This time, however, the concert is apparently to be held on the Mall in front of the Victoria Memorial with around 250,000 expected to watch from the Mall itself and a similar number watching from the adjoining Green Park and St James's Park. It would also be relayed to crowds in Hyde Park.

This means that a crowd of up to 1 million people should be able to take part in the biggest concert in British history.

Names of some of the concert performers are due to be announced later this month and the wish list is thought to include Lady Gaga, Adele, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John.

Gary Barlow is helping to organise the line-up. Strong interest has been shown in performing from American artists. Other possibilities include Ellie Goulding, Mumford & Sons, Jessie J and the rapper Tinie Tempah.

The concert will be broadcast in the US by ABC. The BBC will also sell it to other international broadcasters. The RF would watch from the side of the stage in the memorial gardens.

Details are still subject to change with arrangements still to be agreed with the Metropolitan Police.

The Sunday Times is paywalled, but for any subscribers this is the link:

We will rock you, Ma'am

More for the Diamond Jubilee thread. Is it possible for the thread to be opened yet?

Members of the House of Commons and House of Lords have donated more than £85,000 in order to commission and place a new stained glass window in Westminster Hall, part of the Palace of Westminster. The new window will show an eleven and a half foot depiction of HM's coat of arms.

This is actually a huge honour for the Queen. Westminster Hall is almost 900 years old and a World Heritage Site so any changes to the building are very, very rare.

Westminster Hall is, of course, where monarchs lie in state. Most recently, The Queen Mother's coffin lay in state in the Hall when she passed away in 2002.

Canada Post has issued its official Diamond Jubilee commemorative stamp to launch what will ultimately be a seven-part postal tribute to Queen Elizabeth.

The Queen will address both houses of Parliament on March 20.

The BBC is looking for people who remember the day the Queen succeeded to the throne.

Canada to mark Queen's Diamond Jubilee with medal, ceremonies

Canada will mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's ascent to the throne with a series of celebratory gestures in Ottawa and across the country in the coming days, including the unveiling of a special Jubilee emblem carved in ice at Ottawa's annual Winterlude festival — a fitting tribute to the 85-year-old monarch from the snowiest corner of her realm.
