Diamond Jubilee

The year 2012 was a great celebration for Britain, along with the London Olympics, the nation also celebrated 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II as reigning monarch. One key celebration was the river pageant which saw over a thousand boats sail down the historic River Thames in front of vast throngs of well wishers. In an ironic reflection of true Britain, it absolutely poured down. But this did not stop the massed hoards from waving flags and cheering along.
