The Gloriana looks marvelous! Almost like time-traveled! Never seen anything like it.

It does, doesn't it?
All royals are now aboard, and The Royal Standard has been raised to signal the Sovereign is on board.

The procession is now almost under way; everything looks just marvellous!

The rowboats with flags also look really spectacular! Looking forward for their salutes!

John Barrowman is on board of the Bell Barge. Love him!
According to BBC, the barge will lead the flotilla ringing the bells, and across the country the bells will ring back.

Haven't seen the Earl and Countess yet, but the description is priceless.
Everything is looking just brilliant; can't wait till everything "officially" starts; less than 5 minutes now.

Can someone explain to me why the entire royal family isn't on the Royal Barge? It seems silly to me that they aren't all together, expecially considering the size of the boat.

I suppose it's mainly because of security; having all of them on one boat would be a nightmare.
Another consideration is representation; this way, most "major" boats get a member of the royal family or two just to themselves.
Besides, the main boat is all about the "main" royals - the Queen, Prince Philip and the Wales family.

It's live here in Australia on ABC24.

The Duchess of Cambridge is an absolute knockout. What a striking shade of red she is wearing. Beautifully tailored, but to no surprise.

I enjoy viewing our Maori neighbours on display in their ceremonial garb. Makes a woman's heart flutter

Did I just spy Sophie of Wessx on the Lord Mayor's barge?

First of all, it's a security measure. Secodly, it's a PR thing. By spreading them more, more barges are honoured and also the attention isn't just focused on just one barge, but on many different barges. Think of it like each member of the family sitting at different tables at a feast.

Yes, it was the Countess of Wessex on the same barge as Boris Johnson.
The Royal Barge has now taken its place in the centre.

Really glad they are part of it too :)
