DTA Celebrates Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee~ Where To Watch in the USA

In January of 2011 I began a weekly feature entitled “Royal Wedding Wednesdays”. As I hit the “send” button on that first post I wondered if it would be met with crickets chirping. On the contrary, and much to my delight, it turned out that there were many of you who shared my enthusiasm for all things royal.

The winning emblem design following a national competition for children aged between 6 and 14 was created by 10-year-old Katherine Dewar, from Chester.

Indeed over the four year history of this blog several of those posts rank in the top ten for viewing and continue to be read and receive comments on a daily basis.

So, yes, it goes without saying that Décor To Adore will be honoring and celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth through Wednesday, June 6th. Want to join in on the fun?

All Diamond Jubilee events can be found on the official website.

While I am so proud to be an American, following the royal family is my guilty pleasure. So glad that we have an official royal blogger. Who knows ~ perhaps you will step into Katie Couric's shoes and be granted an interview for the blog world. Thanks for the update. You know I will be watching!

Susan and Bentley

I had no doubt between packing, searching for a home and training your newest Häagen-Dog that you'd post another royal series. It's no wonder these posts are so popular; they are more informative than the television specials! I look forward to your diamond give-away at it's conclusion. :)

Your Friend,

I am excited to see it all. It brings back special memories of all the trips my Mom and I took to London. Wish she was here so we could watch it together.
Thanks Laura!

Priscilla said...

Oh, Boy!
I'll be watching BBC Amreica. Nice they are finally broadcasting something British, rather than all those American re-runs they usually do. (I don't think I could stomach watching the vapid Katie Couric. She makes my teeth ache.)
One of the years we lived in England, was the 50th anniversary of D-Day. Our village really went all out. I'd love to be back for this. I'm sure they have done themselves proud.

Betty said...

Thanks for the schedule. I did watch the special on TV. I love the English and everything about the Royal family.
I just printed out the timeline and I will be watching.

I am so excited for all of the hoopla! My hubby and kiddos can laugh it up, but I fully intend to enjoy the festivities from our living room. =) I am tickled that you are doing more of your royal posts. I enjoy them all so much!

Hope all is going well with your move and big changes. It is definitely a time consuming process.

Mimi said...

Nancy said...

It is so nice to know that your blog is the "go to" place for all things Royal. I appreciate all of your research.

Don't get the hoopla. With over 8% unemployment in the States, there are more important things to spend time on.
