To mark 60 years of Her Majesty The Queen as Head of State in the United Kingdom Stitching Cards have released a free Diamond Jubilee pattern.
The Diamond Jubilee celebrations will centre around an extended weekend in 2012 on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June.
Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne on 6 February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2 June 1953. She celebrated her Silver Jubilee (25 years) in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee (50 years) in 2002.
The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.
The Stitching cards Diamond Jubilee pattern would make a great souvenir of this royal occasion.
