Following the celebrations, 45 sacks of mail were delivered to the Palace, with the royal residence's correspondence office expecting more messages in the coming days.

During the Jubilee festivities, the British Monarchy and Diamond Jubilee websites attracted a total of 2,031,057 unique visitors and 7,611,699 page views.

Over the four-day June bank holiday weekend, the total views on the Monarchy Flickr account were 1,415,972, while the Royal Channel on YouTube was viewed on 475,604 occasions.
