A small model of Queen Elizabeth II was unveiled in a colorful ‘parade’ through a model village in Devon to celebrate the Jubilee.
Babbacombe Model Village in Torquay unveiled the impressive parade of mounted guards, Beefeaters and HRH in the royal carriage accompanied by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. In front of a model of Windsor Castle, the flag-waving crowds were brought to life in incredible detail.
Her Majesty can be seen seated atop her red carriage and accompanied by her royal guards on horseback and parading in parade with their giant black bearskin helmets.

She is joined by 18 hidden Beefeater guards who have been dispatched throughout the village for a jubilee “hunt” – with the winners receiving their own union flag.
Although barely bigger than your thumb, the little Queenie features remarkable detail and looks remarkably like the real thing.
Open daily from May 21 to June 19, 2022, the exhibition is a fun and remarkably well-designed sight to see during the Jubilee period.
Described as a “wonderful place to visit” by people on social media, the famous model village of Babbacombe has long made tiny models for annual celebrations like Halloween and Christmas.
