The Queen (wearing the loaned Plunket Tiara after her initial Tiara broke en route, Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Necklace and the Order of the Garter) and and the Duke of Edinburgh attend the ‘Fanfare For Europe’ Gala Concert at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden on this day in 1973, to celebrate Britain’s entry into the EEC (now the European Union).

As many of you are aware, under Brexit, the UK is now under the process of leaving the EU. Was the Queen’s broken Tiara a bad omen? More importantly, do you think there will be a glittering gala to celebrate Britain’s exit from the European Union? Disclaimer- This is a purely apolitical website, and any questions are just designed to spice up a boring January day, nothing else!
