Below you can see many news stories of fancy dress competitions and pageants that have taken place over the extended Bank Holiday Weekend, but apparently it is the South East that are the most patriotic of all.

Well that is the region that have bought the most Jubilee fancy dress costumes anyway, with the fancy dress retailer All Fancy Dress stating that people in Kent had spent over twice the amount on Jubilee merchandise than the national average per head. Essex and Surrey came in second and third.

There have also been some beautiful stories of pensioners dressing up to support their monarch once more, 60 years on from wearing fancy dress costumes at parties celebrating the Queen’s Coronation.
