The Diamond Jubilee Thanksgiving Service

The Queen, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, attended a National Service of Thanksgiving for Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee in St. Paul's Cathedral. After the service the Queen attended a Reception given by the Lord Mayor at Mansion House and a Luncheon given by the Lord Great Chamberlain at Westminster Hall. Following a Carriage Procession, the Royal Family appeared on the Balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Diamonds are a queen’s best friend, baby! Cullinan III and IV, 158 carats of pure diamond bling: doesn’t get more queen-y than this. Uh-mazing. Also of note: she's upgraded the size of her traditional earrings as well. Way to go all out, Your Maj!
