60 years on the throne

- June 2nd, 2012

This weekend, the Queen will mark 60 years on the throne.

She is expected to attend the Epsom Derby on Saturday, and a massive concert is planning for Monday evening.

Monday update: The Duke of Edinburgh has been taken to hospital as a precautionary measure after developing a bladder infection, royal officials said via Twitter Monday. He will be missing Monday night’s concert.

“Prince Philip will remain in hospital under observation for a few days,” a press release said.

“He is, understandably, disappointed about missing this evening’s Diamond Jubilee Concert and tomorrow’s engagements.”
