Now, let's face it, how many of us could cope with 60 years in the same job?
Although there are clearly some perks to being Queen - nice houses, travel for work, extensive clothing allowance.....
Anyway, celebrating the Jubilee seems like a great excuse for a party, and if you missed out on a street party for last year's big Royal event, the wedding, then maybe you're thinking of getting something organised for this year?
But you don't know where to start, right? So go along to www.thebiglunch.com, where there are some great ideas and a pack you can request which includes posters and invitations - everything you need to get the ball rolling.
And if you want some inspiration for a theme, then why not go Best of British, or do some research and get everyone to bring a dish from each of the 6 decades.
And don't forget the themeing - disposable bunting, plates, cups, napkins even multi tier cake stand and sandwich stands are all available to really set the mood - how about a union jack printed chocolate bar for each guest? We know just the place for these...
Let us know if you've got anything planned, and we'll keep you up to date with anything else we hear about. Don't forget to invite us along - we'll bring the best chocolate brownies in the universe!
