The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

“It was Queen Elizabeth I who launched 1,000 ships down the River Thames, in the 16th century. The same number of boats made their way through London on Sunday — not an Armada for battle, but a fanfare of pageantry celebrating the 60 year-reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Black clouds, gusting winds and often torrential rain — the hallmarks of a British summer outdoor event — were unable to darken the magnificence of the display, although several people were treated for hypothermia.

Hundreds of thousands gathered on the banks of the Thames to watch the queen glide past in a barge decorated with flowers, with her closest family at her side, including grandson Prince William and his wife, Kate.”
