Charles and Camilla singing the national anthem at the street party in Piccadilly:

The campaign group, Republic, are having a protest today. Apparently about 250 people are there. Nice snippet from Richard Palmer on Twitter:

Quote:
"We will win this campaign," Republic's Graham Smith tells supporters. "No you bloody won't," says a woman passing by in red, white and blue.

According to BBC, about 1 million people (!!!) line the banks of the river, waiting for the Pageant to start - the biggest one for over 350 years.

The pageant starts at 2:30pm GMT, which means about 3:30pm in the Netherlands. The Queen will be on the Royal Barge, along with the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry.

According to BBC, the sheer size of the flotilla is so huge, that if you stand still, it will take the ships over an hour to pass before you.

I'm so glad to see people from so many races, ages and nationalities in the enormous crowds today. This is truly an event that's bringing people from so many traditions and backgrounds together.

We've seen coverage of Jubilee parties in Tuvalu in the Pacific, in Pakistan, in Bermuda, the south of France and Denmark among others. As usual the Aussies, Canadians, Kiwis, Americans and even the French are out in numbers at today's event.

The Cambridges and Harry are due to arrive in 15 minutes, followed by the Queen and DoE 5 minutes later. The BBC coverage is well underway on BBC1.

And that despite the somewhat unfortunate weather (mild summer rain).

Prince Charles and Camilla make surprise visit to lunch outside Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly
Quote:
Prince Charles and Camilla made a surprise appearance at a street party today ahead of the Jubilee flotilla. Braving the rain this morning, the Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall dropped in on thrilled revellers at what must be Britain's poshest street party - a banquet for 500 along Piccadilly in London. The world famous Ritz hotel, the Wolseley restaurant and Fortnum & Mason, the Queen's official grocers, provided the majestic backdrop for the revelry, which saw tables bedecked in red, white and blue set up along the central London street.
A lot of pictures and a video at the end of the article.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall just arrived at Chelsea Pier. They are currently talking to the Chelsea Pensioners.
The cheers are pretty deafening. The Duchess is wearing a lovely cream ensemble.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry arrive at Cadogan Pier.
Kate is wearing a bright red ensemble and looks beautiful.

Kate seems to be wearing a brooch which we should be able to see very clearly.
