Royal Jubilee Special Report

April 30, 1885 ·

Queen Victoria’s Royal Jubilee got off to a flying start yesterday with a 5-hour long sky pageant featuring airships from all around the world, with millions ignoring the wet british weather to have a right royal knees-up on the street.

The London sky was turned black, as hundreds of dirigibles floated along the River Thames, each blotting out daylight in scenes reminiscent of last week’s total eclipse.

Her Majesty was joined by other members of the royal family, and 20,000 invited guests aboard a series of specially built airships, lined up along the river.

The weather failed to dampen the spirit and determination of the country, as thousands hosted street parties, which organisers claimed had brought together an estimated six million people.

A spokesman for the trade union rights paper ‘The Spanner‘, said more than 1,200 protesters hadgathered at two sites during the pageant. “We’re opposed to celebrating hereditary privilege and power, at a time when jobs are threatened by the governments adoption of weird science.” The person, who did not want to be named, was particularly critical of the amount of Ambinium used to keep the vessels afloat at a time of scarce resources, he said “this just shows the government has learnt nothing from past mistakes.”
