An estimated 90million pints were thrown back as the pub industry enjoyed a £2billion boost amid a searing mini-heatwave.

Even the dogs of the nation were dressed to the nines. Two-year-old Maltipoo Hattie posed happily in a Union Jack top hat at the Lugger Inn in Penzance, Cornwall.

In Cosham, Hants, around 100 residents of Sea View Road waved flags and wore Union Jack hats at a party that spanned most of the length of their street.

Residents of Moulsham Drive in Chelmsford, Essex, also partied in the sunshine, while in Twickenham, south-west London, a reveler dressed as a queen – complete with handbag – waved regally.

In Bromley, south-east London, knitters made a crown and Union Jack for a Royal Mail post box.

In addition to street parties, patriotic Britons made their own individual efforts to celebrate the anniversary.

In Cradley Heath, West Mids, Warren Rudge, 54, painted the entire 700 square foot front of his fish and chip shop with what he believes to be the largest Union Jack in the country. He spent two days applying 12 liters of paint with his son James, 32.

Warren said: “Fish and chips are the Queen’s favorite food so we thought the flag was quite fitting.

“We worked two 14-hour days to get it ready on time. It’s so well received that we could keep it.”

Mum Katrina Clark, 33, has baked an incredible showstopper cake complete with a crown at her home in Sittingbourne, Kent.

Katrina used chocolate ganache and sugarpaste frosting to create the eye-catching design, while individually gluing on the beads and hand-painting the embroidery.

She said: “We had a family anniversary celebration for 40 of us, so I wanted to do something special. I took inspiration from the original coronation dress as I love all the embroidery.”

In Abingdon, Oxon, bakers were preparing for one of the country’s most bizarre royal celebrations – a mass bun fight.


More on the Queen’s Jubilee Weekend…


The tradition dates back to the coronation of King George III in 1761 and is held to celebrate important royal occasions.

Residents will scramble to catch them and then hurl them at each other – or pocket them as a souvenir of the anniversary.

Mum-of-two Lucy Hutton, 42, said: “It’s a tradition. We have our quirky ways, but it seems normal to us.

“The whole city always comes together.”

In the picturesque village of Toft, near Cambridge, around 250 people attended a lavish tea party while basking in the sun.

RIGHT ROYAL KNEE HIGH

Residents closed the road for the day to enjoy an afternoon of celebrations while scarecrows bearing the monarch’s face lined the gardens.

Locals in Bournemouth, Dorset donned crowns and toasted their glasses as they celebrated beneath rows of bunting.

Hundreds of people also flocked to the seaside town of nearby Swanage for a mega-jubilee jamboree.

And Paul Woolf and Trixie Humphrey took their street by storm with their patriotic getups.

The pair toasted at a shindig in Southsea, Hampshire.

Thousands of Brits are expected to continue the celebrations into the wee hours – and keep the partying going in the clubs.

And the pubs stay open until 1am on the special long weekend.
