“It’s too windy!”: Dover’s Beacon Writer fights a strong breeze

On Thursday night, June 2, two men who were responsible for lighting the Dovertown Beacon to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee were suffering from a refreshing situation. “The wind is too strong, mate! I’m trying,” I can hear one of the men finally saying before illuminating it. According to British media, about 3,500 beacons were lit in the UK and Commonwealth countries on Thursday evening. According to the BBC, the lighting of the main beacon located outside Buckingham Palace was triggered by the Queen at a ceremony at Windsor Castle, triggering a chain reaction of lighting across the country. The 96-year-old queen attended the lighting ceremony, but British media said she would miss Friday’s Jubilee Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London after experiencing “some discomfort” during Thursday’s festival.
