During the past few days, Queen Elizabeth II opened the Jubilee Gardens on the site where the Festival of Britain was held in 1951.  The Jubilee Gardens were created to mark the 60-year reign of the Queen.  She also visited the British Film Institute  (BFI) in London where she saw home  movies of her and a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne.  The movies were shot by the Duke of Edinburgh in the 1950s and will be digitized by the BFI.  Queen Elizabeth II also paid a visit to Romford in Essex where she officially opened The Drapers’ Academy in Harold Hill.  Photos by Bauer Griffin and Getty Images.
