The Diamond Jubilee

The Queen is marking her Diamond Jubilee with a series of visits throughout the UK. Sadly, she will not be visiting Fitton itself. But the official website makes fascinating reading. During her reign she has sat for 129 portraits, attended 35 Royal Variety performances, and introduced a new breed of dog known as the ‘dorgi’ (a corgi/dachshund cross). No one can say that she doesn’t put duty before pleasure.
