1.25 Million Line The Thames For The River Pageant

Organisers of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Pageant yesterday have said thank you to the public, after one and a quarter million people lined the banks of the River Thames to watch.


It's emerged that six people involved in the Pageant had to be taken to hospital yesterday after becoming very cold and wet during the flotilla.


None are in a serious condition.


Organisers say rowers had the worst of the weather.


Nearly 400 spectators were treated on the banks of the Thames.


Meantime the red dress that Kate was wearing when she was on the Royal barge with Prince William has been so popular that copies have apparently sold out online.


The next event in the four day celebrations is a tea party in the Buckingham Palace gardens, with a modern version of Coronation Chicken on the menu.


Then this evening more than 4 thousand Diamond Jubilee Beacons will be lit across the UK and the world to celebrate the Queen's 60 years on the throne.


There will be beacons everywhere from the battlements of the Tower of London to a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic, that's home to just 262 people.
