Queen Elizabeth Makes Diamond Jubilee Statement

Posted on June 5, 2012

Queen Elizabeth II made a rare video statement thanking all those who have helped plan and carry out her Diamond Jubilee celebration. She says she has been humbled by all the kindnesses shown towards her. One and a half million people showed up to honor her at Buckingham Palace and the outpouring of affection for the reigning monarch has been overwhelming.
