🇬🇧Luvvly jubbly! 🇬🇧
It’s a long bank holiday weekend and Great Britain is coming together to celebrate their favourite 96 year old monarch, The Queen Elizabeth II. The Union Jack bunting is up, the Pimm’s is served and the nation is ready to party! The platinum Jubilee marks 70 years of Her Majesty the Queen sitting on her golden throne decorated with 2,868 diamonds, 273 pearls, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, and 5 rubies. The Queen's Platinum Jubilee comes at a particularly difficult time as the cost of living crisis is causing many households to feel the economic squeeze. According to the March 2021 budget, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has funnelled £28million of taxpayers' money into the royal four-day affair.
