Madness at the Palace

Last day of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. We watched a bit of the boating regalia on Sunday but missed today's inevitable concert, though I saw brief highlights on YouTube.  "Do I have to have a pop concert?" "Sorry, Ma'am, yes you do". So, cue Robbie Williams and Annie Lennox and Sir Cliff and Sir Elton and Sir Tom and Sir Paul and all the usual people. Still, well-themed and an impressive production - and Madness doing Our House on Buckingham Palace roof was a nice touch. 
There was a fair bit of coverage in the Chinese media. Not sure what they made of it all. Lang Lang performed, so that probably helped. And of course all the Jubilee merchandise was made in China.
