LONDON, UK, June 3, 2012: Final preparations are being made for street parties around the UK and spectators are gathering by the Thames in London as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations reach their peak, reports BBC News.
Thousands will watch the Queen’s barge lead a 1,000-strong flotilla.
The nautical parade, marking 60 years of her reign, promises to be the most spectacular in London for 350 years. Millions more Britons are expected to take part in Jubilee parties, outdoor concerts and fairs across the country.
The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and twenty members of the royal family will travel from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge aboard a lavishly adapted royal barge – the Spirit of Chartwell – decorated with almost 10,000 cut flowers.
