Flotilla of Boats Passing Westminster During Diamond Jubilee River Thames Pageant

A fleet of small vessels from the Sea Cadet Corps passes by Westminster Palace during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Pageant.
Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh were onboard the Royal Barge, the Spirit of Chartwell with several other members of the Royal Family to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee at the River Pageant on the Thames River.
The Royal Barge was accompanied by the Royal Barge Honour Guard made up of two P2000 patrol boats, two picket boats, two rigid inflatable boats from HMS Diamond, and four Off-shore Raiding Craft from 539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines.
The Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines piped the boats down the river as they sailed behind the Royal Barge before Her Majesty The Queen was escorted by the First Sea Lord, Sir Mark Stanhope into HMS President, where the Royal Party then watched as the remaining boats sailed past.
Portsmouth-based Minehunter HMS Hurworth was the Royal Navy's contribution to the Pageant while the Royal Naval Reserves formed a Guard of Honour and Colour party at HMS President to receive the Queen. This was the first time the Colour had been presented in the presence of the Queen since it was presented the year following her Golden Jubilee.
To round the whole pageant off, the Fleet Air Arm staged a flypast in a diamond formation over HMS President with nine Royal Navy helicopters led by a Second World War Swordfish
