But now that you’ve sorted the decorations, the cake, the food and the all-important drinks for your barbecue or afternoon tea, your attention may turn to what to wear.

Speaking of pyjamas, this corgi set from Next is not to be missed. You may not be celebrating the jubilee at all, but even as a dog lover these are quite the buy.
