On 3rd June 2012 to celebrate Queen Elisabeth II 60 year reign, the Diamond Jubilee Flotilla Pageant with 1000 vessels sailed along the River Thames. Over a million people gathered to watch the Spirit of Chartwell and cheer the royal barge. Chartwell House was home of Winston Churchill - a thoughtful name of a barge.

A lot has happened during the lifetime and reign of Queen Elisabeth. Her children and grandchildren have grown up to know a very privileged life to learn from and be enriched in their experience. In a time where humanity is to progress, it is time for people to be empowered and so time will tell, if this is to be!
Peace, love and best wishes
