Royal Jubilees: Parties Fit for a Queen!

As Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 60-year Diamond Jubilee, look back at the epic parties and pageants that marked her Silver and Golden Jubilees


When it comes to fancy rides, nothing quite matches the queen's elaborate Gold State Coach. Pulled by eight white horses, the priceless 250-year-old gilded carriage took the monarch from Buckingham Palace to London's St. Paul's Cathedral for her Silver Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving on June 7, 1977; it'll be wheeled out again for her majesty's Diamond Jubilee parade.
