I'm confused as to which thread to post in? The diamond jubilee weekend thread or this one or the diamond jubilee general thread?

If it has to do with today's pageant, it should go here.

Given it's probably rained for at least 60% of The Queen's entire reign, shall we all just get a grip and enjoy the day anyway? #jubileeCNN

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
It's a grey day with heavy showers forecast but my train is rammed with people heading to London 55 miles away for the #diamondjubilee

yup I added BBC America to the list. I too have my DVR set cause I'm 90% sure I won't wake up. I didn't sleep for William and Kate's wedding cause I was afraid I wouldn't wake up for it. As much as I love the Queen I'm not pulling that again ever..well maybe...we'll see.

LOL! Right, because we both know, if we're alive by then, that we'll pull the same all-nighter when their first-born's wedding rolls around!

I wish I could stay up all night, especially since I took a very long nap this afternoon, however, seeing as I have to work on Monday, if I stay up all night tonight, it will throw me off entirely and I'll be dragging come the start of the work week.

Too true! I`m thinking the only other time I may pull an all nighter is when Catherine gives birth to the heir. Oh and then the heir`s wedding if I`m even alive then haha!

I have mentioned the online broadcasters in brackets. It`s CNN.com, BBC One with the tvpc link I have provided in my post with the timings a few posts above, And I have heard also CBS.com will be streaming the CEST times are if you watch the BBC and CBS streams is 3:30pm CEST. Same if you watch CBC stream(if there is one) but I dunno if people outside of Canada can stream.

If you watch the CNN stream: 5:00pm CEST. I beleive the url is cnn.com/live

I just knew, when last weekend was so hot and sunny, that this weekend would be wet. Oh well, a bit of rain's never stopped us Brits before (except at the cricket and Wimbledon).

I have a pretty cool 'problem' on my hands - the Olympic flame is about 10 miles from me today. So, do I go and see that or stick with the Thames pageant?

Go see the Olympic flame, EIIR, and record the pagent. You can always watch it again and they will be rening re-runs for couple of days till we are sick of it, but one doesn't get to see the Olympic flame live. :)

I think you're right, Charlotte. I'm still in my jammies though, so it'll be a matter of whether I can rouse myself to actually go!

Just seen Charles and Camilla out and about in Piccadilly! Camilla had a lovely Burberry-style raincoat on.

The build up is on BBC News and Sky News. Here's a couple of links for those who are interested:

Charles and Camilla have dropped in unexpectedly on a street party in Piccadilly. The revellers weren't expecting them and a huge cheer went up when they appeared. Everyone thrilled to be able to see them on the big day.

Some wonderful pictures of the rowing boats mustering on the Thames. I've seen some huge Canadian flags flying from the vessels, as well as the flag of the Irish Republic.
