The official plans for the royal family involved:
Sun - a flotilla of 4000 boats down the River Thames (unfortunately in awful rainy weather)
Mon - a massive concert in front of Buckingham Palace
Tue - a service in St Paul's Cathedral, carriage procession and fly past
Most of my plans didn't directly correspond with the Queen's, but I did try to make the best of the four days and briefly "checked in" with the royal events yesterday afternoon by standing on the bank of the Thames to watch the fly past. It was pretty cool...
|Oh yes, those are the Red Arrows :)
Stay tuned for the rest of my super-long bank holiday weekend...
