Despite the rainy weather Her Majesty looked elegant as she and other members of the Royal Family sailed down the Thames on her royal barge, the Gloriana, accompanied by a 1,000 ship flotilla.
Tonight, Monday evening, a concert will be held outside Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. Some very well know musicians are set to perform. Elton John will be playing three song, “Your Song,” ”I’m Still Standing” and “Crocodile Rock.” Welsh singer Singer Tom Jones will perform two classic tunes, “Why? Why? Why?” and “Delilah,” while Annie Lennox perform one piece, “There Must Be An Angel.”
Australian singer Kylie Minogue and American Stevie Wonder will play a medley of greatest hits. Sir Paul McCartney will play “Live and Let Die,” from the James Bond movie of the same name. American soprano Renee Fleming will perform with the BBC Concert Orchestra. My friend, George pointed out to me that Renee Fleming brings a local connection to the celebrations as she is from Rochester, NY.
