British pride and Union Jacks were out in spades this weekend, for the Diamond Jubilee–that is, the national celebration of Queen Elizabeth's now 60-year reign of England. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (i.e. Prince William and his beautiful bride of a little over one year, Kate Middleton) joined royal brother Harry in a private box at the Buckingham Palace concert, which boasted performances by swell Brits like Robbie Williams, Jessie J, Paul McCartney and of course, Elton John.
While the "kids" enjoyed the rockin' concert (and Kate recuperated from her flame-red fashion faux-pas that channeled Kdash from the day before), William's father Prince Charles publicly acknowledged the timeless royal icon he referred to as "Mummy," saying "This is our opportunity to thank you and my father for always being there for us, for inspiring us with selfless duty and service and making us proud to be British." Aww, how sweet!
