The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations continue in London and the Buckingham Papace Concert was held yesterday at that rather large house on the mall. Special occasions bring out special people spanning over decades and this was yet another event of that calibre, part of the 4 day spectacle that is the Diamond Jubilee.
Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have flocked to London to witness the spectacle of the weekend’s celebrations and millions more have watched it on TV around the globe to witness something that may not be seen again in our lifetimes. A lot of names here for this concert including all of Royalty such as Prince William and Catherine – Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Camilla – Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice of York and more and of course The Queen but no Prince Philip who was not in attendance as he was rushed to hospital. More on that at Metro..
Other prominent names outside of Royalty at the event included Prime Minster David Cameron and his wife Samantha Cameron, Rolf Harris and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Music stars honoured with performing at this Royal concert (more…)
Massive celebrations are underway for the Queens Diamond Jubilee for her reign of 60 years across the country and London was the main staging area yesterday, with the Thames Pageant being the highlight on Sunday and acting as a beacon to the rest of the nation with street parties across the country running into 4 figures despite the weather. Apparently nothing has been seen like this Pageant on the Thames for over 300 years. Queen Victoria is the only other monarch to reach this 60 year milestone All once in a lifetime stuff.
The BBC did a superb coverage of the event complete with rain splattered cameras adding that extra reality to the British weather that was prevalent throughout most of the event but in true Brit style things carried on regardless and the Diamond Jubilee celebrations spirit was not dampened in the slightest.
Royalty in attendance of course included The Queen and Prince Philip, (more…)

What’s going to be happening this Diamond Jubilee Weekend at Fame Fad? It’s going to be a play it by ear weekend, as I’m writing this true to Brit form it’s raining in London and the forecast for that massive boat cavalcade down the Thames on Sunday is a complete washout apparently, but weather forecasters don’t always get it right.
There’s other things going on Bank Holiday Monday and Tuesday and the weather may be better on those days. I’m off for 4 days so not involved in anyway with these Royal events (need a break) so any pics from me look to be limited at present and of a more personal nature if I do venture out, but we’ll have something here on this site to commemerate this special event in some shape or form via me or third party sources. Apparently only Queen Victoria has managed to reach this Royal milestone and have an event like this……………..and whether you are a fan of the Royals (not the Royles) or not, this really is a once in a lifetime thing where all eyes around the world will be on this town and it will be in YOUR face whether you like it or not.
To keep Fame Fad visitors occupied I will be launching (more…)
Part 3 of the hectic arrivals photos at the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards held in Berkeley Square in Mayfair London last night. Photos taken here by yours truly from the latter part of the arrivals and things were getting busy as the event was due to start at 8pm and the arrivals started at about 6.45pm and the stars were still arriving after 8pm. Panic was setting in!
A selection of highlight shots from the tail end of the arrivals and Kelly Brook (above) stole the headline in this section in a lacey white figure hugging number and strappy heels. Hand on hip, level stare and a half smile, you could say she has done this just a few times before.
Sofia Vergara was second from last to arrive and again she was looking very much on the money. Slightly underexposed this shot as the batteries were going on the flash and didn’t want to risk changing them and just managed to eke this shot out. which is passable but Sofia as always looking exceptional in a latin manner. She claimed a Comedy award at this event She seemed to be interested in a photog a couple down from me who was doing a very loud mock latin accent that seemed to be hitting a spot with her (she’s looking at him in the pic). She blew him a kiss…twice! (more…)
