Oh, yes! The Diamond Jubilee joy starts here! Windsor Castle is putting on an exhibition to celebrate this momentous occasion, which opens today. It traces Queen Elizabeth II's reign through a series of sixty photographs (one for each year since 1952), showing both official occasions and more candid moments.

Even if you aren't enamoured with the pomp of royal events, think of the vintage appeal that this exhibition will have, particularly in the early years of Betty's reign. And, if we're lucky, there may even be some photos of her sassy baby sister, Margaret.

It's open until October this year, so there's plenty of time to get along and see it. And if you can't make it, never fear, as I will report back in a blog post once I've been. If there's an accompanying book, I may even be tempted to buy that... in which case, there could be some scanning and sharing of the best pics.
