Queen Elizabeth - What makes a Queen happy?


Buckingham Palace
 Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee was celebrated on the extended weekend of June 2-5.  The British Queen has now been on the throne for 60 years.  The celebrations were fantastic! But one wonders… what makes a Queen Happy?

Let’s take a listen to a special address from the Queen to the Nation!  For some extra fun, try to fill in the missing words!

experience. It has 2 __________ me 3__________to see so many thousands of families,

neighbours and friends celebrating together in such a happy atmosphere.

5__________ to all those who have had a hand in organising these Jubilee celebrations. It
