So today, all of England celebrated the Queen’s birthday. It’s not actually her birthday, it’s just her official birthday- a random Saturday in June. There was a big parade and the Queen, Charles, Prince of Wales, Prince William, Prince Harry, some other famous people, and a ton of guards passed by. I managed to slip in a picture of the queen with my crappy camera:
Another cool thing was the mounted band. Everyone played their instrument while riding a horse. I thought it was pretty impressive:
After the parade, we went to the Hampton Court Palace. It is where Henry the VII and then Henry VIII and all his wives lived and where his first son, Edward was born. It wasn’t the coolest palace I’ve seen but it was a gorgeous day so the gardens were really pretty. Unfortunately, my batteries in my crappy camera died half way through the gardens. We also saw the longest grape vine in the world. It was planted in 1768 and still produces lots of grapes which they sell in late August.
Thanks for stopping by, Paige
