Today marks the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne in 1952, after her father, King George VI, died.
A village school in Norfolk was given the honor of hosting the Queen and kicking-off the royal mum’s diamond jubilee year. The primary school students performed music and a play based on her 60 years of service.
Cheering crowds braved the cold outside to greet the 85 year-old monarch. The small children gave three cheers for her as she left the building.
“I love that the monarchy is above politics and feel that the Queen represents that best of all,” said one person who travelled from London to see her.
