The centrepiece of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee took place on the Thames in London on Sunday 3rd June 2012. Celebrating 60 years of the Queens reign, 1,000 boats, kayaks and watercraft took to the Thames in a spectacular seven mile long procession.

This is only the second time in history that a British monarch has lived to celebrate a diamond jubilee.
