The four day celebration of Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne drew to a close in London on Tuesday. There was a service of thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral. Prince Phillip was ailing so the Queen's throne was moved to the same row as her family so she wouldn't have to sit alone. Then there was lunch at Westminster for 700 people including some commoners. Finally, a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace where the Queen appeared once again on the famous balcony.
