On November 28, Her Majesty opened up the doors of Buckingham Palace to the world’s media to kick start her Diamond Jubilee celebrations. And she was armed with strong royal company. The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and met with 350 journalists and photographers. Interactions were off-the-record and pictures were limited. Interestingly, Buckingham Palace’s East Gallery was renamed the Tweet Suite for the night for those who wanted to post online messages about the event.
