Weigh in on how the Peninsula should celebrate queen’s diamond jubilee

Queen Elizabeth soon to celebrate 75 years on the throne, events planned for Sidney

Monarchy lovers should put their thinking crowns on. The Mary Winspear Centre is looking for ideas to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

The Queen came to the throne on Feb. 6, 1952. Her coronation took place on June 2, 1953, and she celebrates her diamond jubilee (75 years) in 2012. The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.

Projects around the world are being planned to celebrate the diamond jubilee and the Peninsula hopes to be in on the action.
