I'm going to London on Thursday to watch the cellebrations with my daughter, Marguerite, and her family. We'll watch the pagentry on the television but might go out into the city later to join in the party.
My husband of 42 years died in 2006. I have three children, two daughters and a son and four grand children, one girl and three boys.
