Union Jacks, Corgis and Crowns: The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Although I never made an official announcement, I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the past month abroad – in Europe and the UK to be exact. So with my feet now back on Australian soil, I feel incredibly lucky to watch The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee from afar knowing that I got a share a little of the impending excitement and jubilation for the national celebration.

Seeing London adorned with Union Jacks, Corgis and Crowns in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 year reign gave the city a magical atmosphere – one I’d love to share with you today! Here are my favourite highlights…

Harrods
The say the world famous department store went all out for the celebration is an understatement. Even their Pet Kingdom (yes, Kingdom – which is a whole other post) was decked out for the celebration – from Jubilee toys, to regal dog beds, and English flavoured pooch treats! For more information on any of the products in the photos pop over to Harrods Online.

Peggy Porschen
The bespoke cake company favoured by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss and Stella McCartney made a pretty in pink display with to-die-for Meringue Kisses, cookie toy soldiers and mini crowns. I couldn’t go past the red velvet cupcake adorned with a mini Union Jack. For more delectable delights visit the official Peggy Porschen website.

Liberty London
The iconic store was awash with bunting in celebration of the event and ever the crazy dog lady I was able to dig up some adorable doggie stationery perfect for the Jubilee. Luckily I had luggage restrictions on my side, otherwise i would have raided their amazing range of cult collectables to commemorate the Queen’s 60 years. For more visit Liberty London.

Cath Kidston
With ‘Royal Stan‘ adorning their Jubilee range – I fell in love with the vintage inspired boutique all over again. From homewares, to dog products and party goods you can see more online at Cath Kidston.

Selfridges
Possibly my favourite spot on my Jubilee Trail. Dotted with Corgis throughout the age old department store – each commemorated the Queen in a different way. From the ‘Royal Corgi’ with full robes and scepter, to the ‘Princess Corgi’ adorned with a tiara, to my personal pick – ‘Casual Corgi’ with a printed headscarf just like Liz. For more of their Jubilee range visit Selfridges.

So to you all, pop on a paper crown, hug a Corgi and have a wonderful Jubilee wherever you may be!

  1. That is so neat, Serena – Corgis have so much personality. We dogsit our little neighbor ‘Yogi’ every so often and he is hilarious! I’m glad you had a lovely vacation!!

    What wonderful pictures! I’m so jealous. If I was thinking, I would have had you pick up something Union Jack for Addie (to say I’m an anglophile is an understatement). Glad you had a blast!
