Diamond Jubilee: Two receptions and a Royal Feast in Splendid Surroundings - hellomagazine.com

Underneath the impressive hammer beam roof of Westminster Hall, 700 lucky invitees awaited the arrival of royal family.

They made their entrance to a fanfare by the State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry. The Queen smiled warmly to the young members of the National Children's Orchestra - who performed later - before making her way to her table.

As she did so, other senior members of the royal family were seated around the splendid historical setting – the scene of Charles I's trial and also where the Queen Mother lay in state in 2002. Above them was the Diamond Jubilee stained glass window, presented as a gift to the Queen by members of both Houses of Parliament, before it is permanently installed above the north door.
