Diamond Jubilee: UK celebrates 60-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II

Britain spent the last four days marking the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's reign. Some of the festivities included the Coronation Cup horse race, River Pageant flotilla along the River Thames, a concert at Buckingham Palace, and carriage processional through central London. It was the second time in history the UK celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of a monarch. -- Lloyd Young(44 photos total)
