British diamond jubilee to be celebrated on 2-5 June 2012

Today, on the anniversary of her coronation, Buckingham Palace has announced the plans for the celebrations of the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Although she succeeded to the British throne on 6 February 1952, the celebrations will - as usual for such events - take place in early summer, i.e. from 2 to 5 June 2012.
Among the highlights of the celebrations will be a “Diamond Jubilee Pageant” on the Thames on Sunday 3 June, in which Queen Elizabeth will travel down the Thames in the Royal Barge at the head of a flotilla. The following day there will be a BBC concert at Buckingham Palace and on Tuesday 5 June there will be a carriage procession to St Paul’s Cathedral, where a service of thanksgiving will take place.
