Celebrations of the British monarch’s 70-year reign ended on Sunday, but the time has come to take stock. Lepetitjournal.com lists the ten figures you need to figure out the extent of a weekend’s festivities: the amount of meters of cloth and glasses of champagne, the number of businesses or tourists in the hotel area.

780,000

The number of foreign tourists welcomed by Heathrow between Wednesday and Sunday. Let’s hope for them that the scenes of chaos reigning at airports haven’t left them traumatised.

3,000

Quantity of Champagne Coupes sold by Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly. What feeds some more rumors about the good ancestry of the British. At pubs or airports for that matter.

16,000

Number of street parties across the UK. Even though not one has become as famous as the one held by Boris Johnson during his imprisonment.

84

The percentage of women of the Jubilee generation – those born in 1952 – are still alive today. Indestructible, this is English.

160,000

The cost of private jet travel for Harry and Meghan, who return to California before the end of the festivities. There isn’t much greener than a former prince who claims to be a great defender of the environment.

4,000

Number of yards of red, white, and blue floral fabric sold by Liberty. Another effect of imprisonment, during which sewing came into play again?

6,000,000,000

Expected business for the entire hospitality sector in the United Kingdom during the festive weekend. Help more than welcome in a crisis situation.

54

Commonwealth capitals lit up with lights to pay tribute to the Queen. Also in France, symbolic buildings were illuminated on the banks of the Hauts-de-France facing the archipelago, mirroring the bonfires lit in the United Kingdom.

1,000

The number of people needed to clean up the royal parks after the concert at Buckingham Palace. Thank them

200,000

Number of events held in British territory. Needless to say, the British know how to party.
