Diamond Jubilee. Republic Protesters Whitehall. Matthew Chattle Photography

The Diamond Jubilee was a four day patriotic feast of Union Jacks all across London. I was out shooting evryday as were many thousands of other photographers. Without really trying I found the Republic, anti-monarchy protesters on Whitehall and they wer wedged inbetween the may thousands of people out to try and get a glimpse of The Queen.
Not too sure if anyone was even interested in them. They were hoping for some reaction I imagine, but the ardent Royalists/monarchists and generally interested people crammed into the streets weren't really taking any notice. No-one really said anything, in fact it was all rather English and diffident. A quiet protest, a grumble or two and everyone had a good time, even the anti-monarchists.
I had a good time as well.
