The Monarchy in the 21st Century – A Platinum Jubilee Tribute

2012

Diamond Jubilee

In 2012, the Queen celebrated another Jubilee, and it brought astonishing numbers. According to the Guardian, it was estimated that the jubilee celebrations brought an estimated £120m of sales to London’s businesses. There were an estimated 9,500 street parties in England, with another 100 in Scotland. 1.2m people were estimated to have lined the royal pageant route along the River Thames to watch the flotilla go past which took 75 minutes to sail pass any static point along the route, whilst 14.7m people tuned into the BBC’s coverage of the diamond jubilee concert on Monday night – the biggest TV audience of the year.

2013

Prince George

In July 2013, the Queen welcomed a new great-grandson, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, the first child of Prince William and the former Kate Middleton, who married in 2011. As third in the line of succession after his grandfather and his father, George is widely expected to become king one day. His birth marked the first time since Victoria’s reign that three generations of direct heirs to the British throne were alive at the same time.
