Prince Charles paid a warm and glowing tribute to his “mama” Queen Elizabeth, in commemoration of HRH 60th anniversary accession to the throne.
Prince Charles is the queen’s eldest child and next in line to the throne: “The Diamond Jubilee gives us the chance to celebrate with pride all that the queen means to us – whether as a nation or as one of her children.”
A packed itinerary of activities is expected to kick-off this week-end with massive crowds in London will be treated to a magnificent procession through the streets and a flotilla on River Thames.
The BBC is expected to air an interview with Prince Charles talking about intimate family memories: “I remember my Mama coming, you know, up, when we were being bathed as children, wearing the crown. It was quite funny – practising,” he continues. “My mama takes great pride in her family, from being a young mother at the start of her reign, to now being a great grandmother twice over,” says the 63-year-old prince.
