CITY VIEWS | WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CELEBRATE THE DIAMOND JUBILEE WEEKEND?

My family is coming down to London from Birmingham and I’ll probably take the kids to a funfair that is taking place in my local area in Hounslow high street. I remember when it was the Golden Jubilee and everybody was excited and happy like they are now. But apart from these single special days everybody keeps questioning and complaining about the purpose of the Royal family.

I’m going to watch it on the river and I’m going to Florence with my girlfriend as it’s her birthday and mine is coming up soon too; other than that some DIY and a barbecue may be on the cards. I know a friend who is going skydiving over the weekend but I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the Jubilee. I think the Jubilee is a good celebration of the monarchy and I quite like the Queen. She does a pretty decent job!

I’m going to be away in Hong Kong to attend some business meetings so I’ll miss the celebrations, and I don’t think I’m going to be able to watch it on the television either because there’s a massive time difference. If I wasn’t going away then I probably would have gone to the street party that my parents are arranging in their local community.
