Heading to London for the big celebratory event this weekend? Over the next couple of days, the Brits are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the celebration, this event marks the 60th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the thrones of 7 countries after her father, King George VI, died on February 6,1952. She is the queen of 16 sovereign states, 12 of which were British colonies or Dominions at the start of her reign.
