Full report on the London celebrations

There's been parties right across the Midlands but the biggest party of them all was in London where an estimated one and a half million people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of royalty.

Some of them had travelled down from the Midlands and a lucky few were invited guests for lunch with Her Majesty.

Brad Steele and Angela Weiss from the Midlands were amongst 700 guests at the Diamond Jubilee Luncheon, where they had dinner with The Queen.

The Queen and the rest of the Royal Family will appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace in just under an hour's time.
