For you Alexi123, USA, a jubilee is special anniversary of an event. In this case the British are celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s reign on the British throne for 60 years. She was crowned in 1952. The flag waving is done as a mark of respect and love for the extraordinary woman Britain and the Commonwealth are lucky enough to still have.

Blimey! That’s a pothole and a half in Chiswick, West London……

Alexi123, you’re on a computer, Google it! No need to sit around uneducated waiting for someone on here to answer your question.

CAN SOMEONE EDUCATE ME ON WHAT IS JUBILEE IS? SINCE I’M NOT FROM THE UK I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING THERE. BUT I’M THINKING IT SOMETHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH PATRIOTIC BECAUSE I SEE ALL THIS FLAG FLOWING AROUND. MAY BE I’M WRONG. HELP!!!!

I wish I was in the UK.
