Celebrating the Diamond Jubilee in the Jubilee Time Capsule

The Jubilee Time Capsule is a way for people to share their memories of the last 60 years and help create a unique gift for The Queen this Diamond Jubilee year.

It is online time capsule that will chart the 60 years of Her Majesty’s reign from the people’s perspective and will be gifted to The Queen following the Diamond Jubilee weekend.

Invited are people from across the globe to select one of the 22,000+ days in the time capsule and share their story of that day; be it a memory of a family wedding in Australia last year, or memories of Ghana’s Independence Day in 1957 as a Dominion with the Queen as head of state.

Taking part is easy: simply visit, sign up, pick your date and tell your story. Use photos, videos, words, songs, poems ... whatever you want - it's up to you - it's your story!

This is a Commonwealth capsule, so stories must be about life in a Commonwealth country, or events that have impacted the Commonwealth.

The Jubilee Time Capsule is organised by the Royal Commonwealth Society. About The Royal Commonwealth Society.

Thank you for this post, sir.

I guess I am eligible, having grown up in the land of Treetops.
