The Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard lights a beacon in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
She said: "These beacons glowing around the world symbolise one family across a wide world, the family of the Commonwealth nations, rich in their diversity but united now in admiration for the unstinting service of the Queen."
HMS Daring lights a beacon to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Type 45 destroyer is the Royal Navy’s most easterly major warship and is currently on operations east of Suez promoting British interests and engaging with regional partners.
A crowd of people sang God Save The Queen as a beacon was lit in the town of Blenheim in Marlborough, New Zealand.
