Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations on the River Thames

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced that on Sunday 3rd June 2012 the River Thames will provide the backdrop for the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant — the largest flotilla to be assembled on the river in modern times — as the public are invited to take part in one of the major celebrations of Her Majesty’s sixty year reign.

The Queen will lead a flotilla of up to one thousand boats assembled from across the UK, the Commonwealth and around the World. With a Bank Holiday the following day, the event organisers are planning for well over one million people to line the banks of the Thames to witness the pageant and join in the celebrations.
