Jammy Toast’s all-time favourite singer, Van Morrison, has been knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. The Belfast-born star has been recognised for services to music, and tourism in Northern Ireland, the inspiration for many of his songs. Van said; “Throughout my career I have always preferred to let my music speak for me, and it is a huge honour to now have that body of work recognised in this way.”
The bears really have enjoyed this weekend’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations with something happening for everyone. Those who like the pomp and circumstance had the Jubilee barge procession and today’s church service, lunch and carriage procession. For those who prefer things a little wilder; there was last night’s concert at the palace. It was like the Queen had gone out for the night and left Harry at home to have a party – except he made the mistake of putting the party on Facebook and everyone turned up.
The bears today are sitting around the telly to watch the celebrations for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Despite the fact our bears are of French descent, they are big Royalists and are looking forward to the Thames Pageant today. This weekend will go down in history as Elizabeth II is only the second monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee – the first being her grandmother Queen Victoria.
