A collection of 10,000 gems is going on show to the public at Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen's 60 years on the throne.
The Queen was visiting south London as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour
A special waxwork of the Queen goes on display at Madame Tussauds in honour of her Diamond Jubilee.
Ben Bennett who acquired the statues after the Queen's Jubilee celebrations says he put them in his garden to give people pleasure.
Now what do you get when you cross a keen gardner with a Royalist?
The answer is this!
A couple from Fifield in Berkshire have installed two giant busts of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in their front garden for all to see.
The statues, which are made from plaster and terracotta, stand at 12 feet tall and are complete with wrinkles, blemishes and even the Duke's bald patch.
Kate Bush, one of Britain's most unique and innovative singers, was made a CBE by the Queen today and dedicated the honour to her family and musical collaborators.
From precocious teenager, whose first single Wuthering Heights was a number one, to veteran musician who released her award-winning 10th studio album in 2011, her talent has stood the test of time.
But she joked after receiving the honour that the award would now have pride of place - at the top of her Christmas tree.
She declined to speak to the waiting press after being made a CBE by the Queen during a Windsor Castle investiture ceremony but issued a short statement.
Bush, who was dressed in dark flowing robes, said: "I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everyone who has been such an important part of it all.
"Now I've got something really special to put on top of the Christmas tree."
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was given a special gift by London Underground's Howard Collins.
The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Cambridge visited Baker Street to mark the 150th anniversary of the Underground. They met Tube staff, spoke to Sherlock Holmes and unveiled a plaque on a train.
