The DiamondJubilee

The Diamond Jubilee is on the 5th of June 2012 and if you didn’t know already here are a few Royal Jubilee Facts!

  • The first British monarch to mark 50 years on the throne in a significant way was George III
  • The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897
  • The Queen came to the throne on 6 February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2 June 1953.
  • She celebrated her Silver Jubilee (25 years) in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee (50 years) in 2002.

The London Olympic Games

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially known as the Games of the XXX Olympiad or “London 2012 Olympic Games”, are scheduled to take place in London, England, United Kingdom from 27 July to 12 August 2012. London will become the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948. So that’s one more reason why everyone should have one of these fabulous cups to remember such a historic event!

For those of you who just want a Fabulously British cup & saucer to celebrate this year, then these two designs are for you! (I think I may speak to Alex and get mine ordered before they all go!)
