|6th February 2017||It's been termed, mainly by coin manufacturers, a Sapphire Jubilee, but 2017 isn't an official Jubilee year of course. Whatever we decide to call it, we can all agree that Her Majesty The Queen achieving 65 years on the throne is a miraculous milestone, which I'm celebrating with pictures from the Mexico State Visit just under two years ago.|
|21st April 2016||Today is more of a recognised international celebration than the occasion which warranted my previous update - the ninetieth birthday of Her Majesty The Queen, another milestone in the incredible life and reign of our Sovereign Lady. For today's update, pictures from my first State visit eighteen month ago here as well as a permanent placeholder for my tribute page.|
|6th February 2016||Whilst it may not have been noted as a major celebration, for me Accession Day 2016 is something very special. Last September Her Britannic Majesty became the longest-reigning Sovereign, surpassing Queen Victoria's reign of 63-and-a-bit years. Until yesterday Her Majesty had reigned for 63-and-a-bit-longer years, but today for the first time ever, a Royal Reign has reached Sixty-Four years, a number never before achieved. To mark this latest foothold in history, you can see my pictures from the Longest Reign Day last September here.|
|9th September 2015||Today is the most important day in the history of the British Empire as Our Glorious Sovereign Lady becomes the longest reigning Monarch in all our history. We start with 150 new pictures of last year's Queen's Birthday Parade and you can see my tribute page to today's colossal achievement here.|
|2nd May 2015||This morning's news is that we have a new Princess after Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth at 8.34am - take a look a my announcement page here!|
|1st January 2015||My January updates seem to be the only opportunity I can find for a bit of catch-up on previous events - in this case going back as far as November 2013 for the Royal Visit to the Co-Operative Headquarters and then to Easter 2014 for the Royal Maundy Service.|
I've also re-organised the Monarchy home page, to make less cluttered, and added a whole new section on Royal Transport with new picture sets showing the State Bentley and Mighty 3.
2015 is going to be the most momentous year ever in our history come September when Her Britannic Majesty surpasses Queen Victoria as our longest-reigning Sovereign; come back regularly before then for more Monarchy updates, but do come back in September to see how I'm marking this year's incomparable milestone!
|1st May 2014||Something of a catch-up for the BeebMaster birthday update, with pictures from May and June last year featuring His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex.|
|8th January 2014||For the first update of 2014, you can see my pictures from last year's Garter Day Procession.|
|22nd July 2013||This afternoon, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy. I sprang into action as soon as the happy news came and you can see my own announcement page of the joyous occasion here.|
|2nd June 2013||It's Coronation Day, and 60 years ago, Her Majesty The Queen was crowned at Westminster Abbey. The two-yard Diamond Jubilee Flag is flying at BeebMaster Towers, and for today's update, I've brought you pictures of some of my Royal watching activities so far from 2013: please take a look at my pages from Commonwealth Day, the Royal Visit to Temple Church and this year's State Opening of Parliament.|
In case you missed it, I've made my Coronation Diamond Jubilee tribute homepage into a permanent exhibit which you can always find here.
|1st December 2012||The Diamond Jubilee Year is drawing to a close, and already I'm formulating my plans to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee! 2012 has been a momentous year for Britain and the Commonwealth, and I wanted to end the year by using my final update of 2012 to bring you a look at the souvenirs and commemoratives of the Diamond Jubilee year which I have collected during 2012 - all in one place here.|
|1st July 2012||At last, you can see all my pictures from the Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend - there are 30 pictures of the BeebMaster Garden Party here, plus 273 pictures in my Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend site, made up of 45 images from the River Pageant, 68 pictures of the Concert and Beacon Lighting, 144 pictures from the Carriage Procession and 16 more of the Balcony Appearance.|
Already, I'm planning for the Platinum Jubilee - just 9 years 11 months to go!
|5th June 2012||I'm still here, but in need of a bit of shut-eye, so I'll leave you with one image of the Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend out of 1926 pictures (coincidentally the same number as the year of Her Majesty's birth) taken since 1st June - the Diamond Jubilee Balcony Appearance.|
|2nd June 2012||It's Coronation Day and the official start of the Diamond Jubilee main weekend. Later today, Her Majesty The Queen will attend the Epsom Derby, exactly 59 years to the day since being crowned at Westminster Abbey. To celebrate, the BeebMaster Diamond Jubilee Garden Party is taking place this afternoon, and tomorrow morning, I'm off to London to watch the Thames Diamond Jubilee River Pageant, Beacon Lighting on Monday night and Carriage Procession and Balcony Appearance on Tuesday. Many pictures - camera willing - of everything once I get back, but for now, a look at the garden decked out for the BeebMaster Garden Party.|
|1st May 2012||For the BeebMaster Birthday Update, you can see pictures of my new Diamond Jubilee flags flying here.|
|2nd April 2012||Just over a week ago, I was in Manchester City Centre for the Diamond Jubilee Visit to Manchester. From my vantage point first at Victoria Station, then at the Town Hall, I had the most wonderful time helping to celebrate sixty years of Our Gracious Queen's Glorious Reign. I took 347 photographs; the best 108 are here.|
|6th February 2012||Today's the day that Our Gracious Sovereign Lady The Queen achieves 60 years on the throne. The brand-new two-yard Union Flag is flying in the BeebMaster Back Garden, and I've decided for today's update to bring, a little belatedly, some pictures of a very special Royal Visit to Cornwall.|
|4th January 2012||The Diamond Jubilee year is at last upon us - I've been waiting for it since the Golden Jubilee, and I'll be playing my part in celebrating Her Most Noble Majesty The Queen's sixty years on the throne. Please take a look a my Diamond Jubilee page here.|
|1st May 2011||I predicted a piccie or two of the Royal Wedding, and came back with 93 - I couldn't have asked for better company or a more splendid vantage point than I was able to get on the day! As a special treat I've relaxed all the usual rules on picture memory size and width - so to see all my images of this joyous day, including some at 2,048 pixels, upgrade your modem and hurry along here.|
|21st April 2011||It's exactly five years since my Monarchy Pages began, but much more importantly than that, today is the Eighty-Fifth Birthday of Her Noble Majesty The Queen. The two-yard flag is flying today in celebration in the back garden of BeebMaster Towers. I'm off to London in a few days for the Royal Wedding, and hopefully I'll be back in early May with a piccie or two. In the meantime, please take a look at my special Sovereign's Birthday page here.|
|4th January 2011||I need hardly say that 2011 is going to be a very, very, Royal year. It all kicks off in April with the Eighty-Fifth Birthday of Her Gracious Majesty The Queen, then the Royal Wedding a week later of His Royal Highness The Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton, then the Ninetieth Birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in June, and after that the countdown to the Diamond Jubilee begins!|
I've already booked two feet of barrier along the Mall for the Royal Wedding, but before we get to that, there's quite a bit of unfinished Royal business from 2010 for you to look at, starting with the Garter Day Procession at Windsor Castle.
|1st August 2010||June 2010 turned out to be the most Royal month since June 2002, and you can see what started it all off here.|
|1st May 2010||The first Royal Attendance of 2010 was in March in Rochdale, where I got a good close-up view of His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester. You can see all the pictures of this event here.|
|16th November 2009||It was a great privilege to be outside Westminster Abbey on 11th November for the Armistice Day service, and I hope you will click here to see more.|
|23rd February 2009||I've finally finished my set on Her Majesty The Queen's Birthday Parade from last June. There are 42 pictures in all, so I hope you will take a look by clicking here.|
|1st January 2009||For the new year update, you can see my pictures from last June's Queen's Birthday Parade which you can see here.|
|1st May 2008||A second picture set of the Royal Visit to Manchester for today's BeebMaster Birthday Update, this time concerning that most splendid of Royal modes of transport, the Royal Train.|

|30th June 2006||Fresh back from London, you can see my report on Her Majesty The Queen's Birthday Parade 2006.|
|1st May 2006||For BeebMaster's birthday, more on the Royal Birthday! The BeebMaster house was bedecked in red, white & blue for the celebrations which you can see here.|
|21st April 2006||A glorious day of national celebration and the perfect time to begin BeebMaster's Monarchy pages. Anybody acquainted with me knows that I am a devoted Royalist so some may think these Monarchy Pages are a little overdue. But now they're here, I hope you will all enjoy them.|
