The public give their views on the Jubilee
The Silver Jubilee
The Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977 provided a splash of colour and a rallying point for national unity at a time of severe economic troubles.

It was the largest public display of affection for the Royal Family since the coronation.

After a slow start, enthusiasm for the jubilee picked up during the year, providing a welcome distraction from the UK's failing economy which had seen the nation referred to as "the sick man of Europe".
