Is it true that the British Parliament is considering Big Ben′s renaming to Elizabeth Tower? Today kicks off the 4-day Diamond Jubilee celebrating 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II rule of the UK. Sunday’s festivities center on a 1,000 boat pageant on the River Thames. So in honor of her reign as queen, the Parliament has majority support to rename the clock tower which houses the historic clock, an icon of both London and England itself, after her Royal Majesty. Some 331 British MPs have agreed to the move, which reflects when King′s Tower of the Palace of Westminster was renamed Victoria Tower during the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. It was 60 years ago today that Queen Elizabeth II went through her coronation following the death of her father, King George VI, though she actually became Queen when he died on February 6, 1952.
