One is most amused: Diamond Jubilee parade and muster puts smile on Ma’am’s face

Thousands of well-wishers celebrated The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee as the parade and muster was given a thunderous Red Arrows finale.

The Queen grinned and chatted with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh during a musical pageant led by six massed bands and servicemen and women from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.

*Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee Lunch overshadowed by protests for Bahrain king

What was supposed to be a celebration of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne was overshadowed by protests over the presence of the king of Bahrain.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Lunch did not go well for prodemocracy protesters, although the event graced the biggest gathering of the world’s crowned heads and royals since her 1953 Coronation.

Other guests who are under fire include King Mswati III of Swaziland, whose obscene and lavish lifestyle bordered vulgarity while his country was living in poverty. Likewise, Prince Mohammed Bin Nawaf Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia was also present. He hails from a kingdom that does not recognize democracy. Not to be outdone is Kuwait’s former prime minister, Sheik Nasser Mohammad Al-Sabah, who was forced to step down after charges of corrupt practices.
