The Queen has made Greenwich in south-east London a royal borough to mark her Diamond Jubilee. It is the first borough to be granted royal status in more than 80 years and is one of only four in the country. The honour has been conferred to recognise the close links between Greenwich and royalty since the Middle Ages.
