Britain Queens Jubilee

  Royal revellers wait in the rain on the South Bank of the river Thames, London, several hours before the start of the Diamond Jubilee river pageant Sunday June 3, 2012. More than 1,000 boats were to sail down the Thames on Sunday in a flotilla tribute to Queen Elizabeth II's 60 years on the throne that organizers are calling the biggest gathering on the river for 350 years. Despite cool, drizzly weather, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to line the riverbanks in London, feting the British monarch whose longevity has given her the status of the nation's favorite grandmother.
