Oh, man, that's not good that he's staying in the hospital; it will be a bit more subdued an event, I'm sure.

I'm unfamiliar with this event.  Is this a general Thanksgiving for everything that you celebrate...how exactly?  Do people do special things at home?

It's not like Thanksgiving Day in the US. I think it's just a way for HM to say thank you for the last 60 years in a religious setting easter-egg-basket

They go to Westminster Abbey have a mass in celebration for the jubilee then go in a carriage to Buck Palace and wave to everyone from the balcony.

^ and ^^ Thank you!

So, this is a part of the Jubilee and not a once a year event?  Sorry for all the questions and the typos I see I'm making.  I'm working with a pair of hands with fingernails that need attention stat.

I think at the Trooping of the Colour they go through the streets in carriage, but no church service.

The Jubilee Thanksgiving Service will be in St Paul's Cathedral not Westminster Abbey.  After the service The Queen is going to the Mansion House and then to Westminster Hall, where the Queen Mum lay in State and where The Queen unveiled the stain-glass window earlier this year.  It is across the road from the Abbey.  From there the carriage procession will take place returning to the Palace.

If they had a Thanksgiving Service for their 65th Wedding Anniversary in November that would be at Westminster Abbey as that is where they married.

They also have them for wedding anniversaries - e.g. their 50th and 60th wedding anniversaries were marked with a service of Thanksgiving in Westminster Abbey and the Queen wanted to have a service for Philip's 90th last year and he refused.

So they are for major milestones in the life of the monarch.
