Diamond Jubilee – 5 June
I awoke at 2am PST, just in time to see Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie enter St Paul’s. I’d meant to wake up at 1:15 to give myself some time before CBC’s live broadcast at 1:30. I’d slept a few minutes before 1 and had, in fact, woken up at 1:15. No sooner as I’d turned off my alarm, I went back to sleep – then jolted myself awake at 2! I frantically rushed to my laptop on my desk, yanked it to my bed (so that I may stay warm) and quickly clicked around CBC to find the live stream. Must say it was rather difficult to find – but I’m glad I didn’t miss anything important.
- Queen Elizabeth wins for best colour – mint green. I don’t know why but I really like today’s choice!
- Prince Charles wins for best dressed gentleman
- Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wins for best dress (by McQueen). Did not like Kate’s hat/fascinator – the flower is odd-looking and is too big.
- Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall wins for worst hat (don’t know why she insists on massive hats or fascinators that cover her hair and practically dominate her) and outfit (the ‘gold’ seems to outshine the Queen)
