A very warm welcome back. It is the final day of the Diamond Jubilee

:00:29.:00:35.

celebrations. We are covering the day's events live on BBC One. There

:00:35.:00:45.
:00:45.:00:57.

is lots to come. The Jubilee lunch Let's give you a sense of what is

:00:57.:01:03.

to come. There is lots of comings and goings. After that lunch, at

:01:03.:01:11.

around 2:30pm, we are expecting the Queen and the other royals to be

:01:11.:01:15.

leaving Westminster Hall, leaving Westminster Hall,

:01:15.:01:17.

encourages this time, for the procession to Buckingham Palace. By

:01:17.:01:24.

the time more of that is done, at around 3:25pm, the Queen will lead

:01:24.:01:29.

the party onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace. There will be a

:01:29.:01:34.

fly-past by the Royal Air Force, including a grand old Lancaster

:01:34.:01:39.

bomber, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, together with some

:01:39.:01:44.

more modern jets. So, plenty to come over the next couple of hours.

:01:44.:01:51.

And of course, we have our BBC presenters pretty much everywhere.

:01:51.:01:55.

We can go to Fiona Bruce now, at the Palace of Westminster, where

:01:55.:02:00.

the lunch is happening. The crowds have been waiting for hours here to

:02:00.:02:06.

see the Queen and come out. The see the Queen and come out. The

:02:06.:02:10.

procession will be making its way towards Buckingham Palace. The

:02:10.:02:14.

people are streaming towards us, to try to get the chance to see the

:02:14.:02:18.

Queen. The bells are peeling from Westminster Abbey. The bands have

:02:18.:02:28.
:02:28.:02:28.

been entertaining the crowds as well. Are you excited? We will be

:02:28.:02:32.

back with Fiona Bruce in a short while. We mentioned the Jubilee

:02:32.:02:42.
:02:42.:02:43.

party not just at the Palace, but also at St James's Park, hosted by

:02:43.:02:49.

Fearne and Jake. Yes, welcome back. We have got the likes of Suggs and

:02:49.:02:53.

John Barrowman, and we are hoping a couple of Olympians will also drop

:02:53.:02:57.

in to have a chat. We are also hoping the sun will put in an

:02:57.:03:02.

appearance this afternoon. Indeed. We will be back with you in

:03:02.:03:06.

a short while. The crowds are really building up on the Mall.

:03:06.:03:14.

They have come across from Westminster. Chris Hollins is there.

:03:14.:03:20.

Yes, the crowds are swelling, they have been growing for the last four

:03:20.:03:25.

or five hours. Some people have been here overnight. They are all

:03:25.:03:28.

waiting for that glimpse of the Queen. We will be catching up with

:03:28.:03:37.

a few of them later on. We were mentioning that 2012 is a

:03:37.:03:41.

very big year. Not just because of the Diamond Jubilee, there is some

:03:41.:03:45.

football going on as well, and of course, the Olympic Games. Who

:03:45.:03:49.

better to talk about these events them Dame Kelly Holmes? It is great

:03:49.:03:55.

to have you with us. It is great to be here. Did you watch the concert

:03:55.:04:04.

last night? I did. How amazing was that? For me, we have just put the

:04:04.:04:09.

Great back in Britain. The concert, it was just extraordinary. When you

:04:09.:04:15.

look at Buckingham Palace, the footage. I have to admit to being a

:04:15.:04:23.

royalist. I was welling up! Did you watch it on the television? I did,

:04:23.:04:29.

it was amazing. The line-up down the Mall. Just that sense of

:04:29.:04:33.

celebration, all of us coming together, I absolutely love it. I

:04:33.:04:38.

love seeing the Union Jacks, the young and the old together. And the

:04:38.:04:43.

Queen. And I have to pay my respect, I hope the Duke of Edinburgh will

:04:43.:04:47.

be well. But to see the Queen, I have to say, this last few days,

:04:47.:04:51.

every time I have seen the Queen, she has had this magnificent smile

:04:51.:04:56.

on her face. She was a beautiful young woman when she came to the

:04:56.:05:01.

throne, and you can see that almost showing through as she has gone a

:05:01.:05:06.

long in her days. You know something about people waving flags,

:05:06.:05:10.

given what you have achieved. Now that we're counting down, after

:05:10.:05:15.

this great day today, towards the Olympics in London, what are your

:05:15.:05:21.

thoughts? I mean, it is seven years since they declared it was coming.

:05:21.:05:25.

Now, we are right on the verge of having the Games here - what are

:05:25.:05:30.

you thinking? I really hope the momentum keeps going. We have

:05:30.:05:39.

really put our mark on the nation's, with the Jubilee as well, this year.

:05:39.:05:47.

It is just going to get bigger and better as we go along. Firstly, I

:05:47.:05:53.

think the performances in the stadium, in the swimming pool,

:05:53.:06:00.

wherever it will be, they are the things which we will remember. But

:06:00.:06:03.

also I think the celebrations, bringing together the community

:06:03.:06:08.

from around the country, that's really what will make these Games

:06:08.:06:14.

stand out. We will have millions of people supporting has come as a

:06:14.:06:18.

nation. I think what we do best is the celebratory events, the tourist

:06:19.:06:24.

industry is going to be... For us as a nation, it is really going to

:06:24.:06:29.

set a level for things to come. are you going to be approaching the

:06:29.:06:35.

Games? You're a icon, a great symbol of Olympic success, but your

:06:35.:06:39.

role will be rather different to eight years ago, so, how do you

:06:39.:06:43.

prepare for it, are you comfortable with that change? Yes, for the past

:06:43.:06:47.

seven years, it has been a big learning curve, I have learned many

:06:47.:06:52.

things, but hopefully I have also helped some of the athletes who

:06:52.:06:57.

will be competing in London 2012 as well. I will take up that mantle of

:06:57.:07:02.

cheering them on with their family. It is really nice to have you with

:07:02.:07:11.

us. Now, the party in full swing, pretty much, in St James's Park...

:07:11.:07:20.

Yes, we have got a lovely crowd here. They have all been enjoying

:07:20.:07:24.

watching the big screen. Before long, the carriage procession will

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:35.

be coming down the Mall. Right now, alongside us is John Barrowman.

:07:35.:07:42.

Thanks for being here. The River Pageant is one of the highlights of

:07:42.:07:46.

the Jubilee celebrations, and you got the chance to be on a boat, on

:07:46.:07:53.

the River - what an opportunity. Yes, it was amazing. I have never

:07:53.:07:57.

felt so proud of being British as on that particular day. Everybody

:07:57.:08:01.

around the world was watching. The fact that we had an opportunity to

:08:01.:08:04.

do something which probably in our lifetimes will never ever happen

:08:05.:08:13.

again. Rain, bring it on, we stood there. I was drenched, I know you

:08:13.:08:22.

were, Fearne, as well. It was the most amazing day. And I was warm

:08:22.:08:26.

and dry in front of the television! But we had never seen anything like

:08:27.:08:32.

it before. Also to be asked to do something like that, to be involved,

:08:32.:08:37.

I did a little video, and I tweeted it, I just got overwhelmed with

:08:38.:08:44.

emotion. I started bubbling a little, while I was on the barge. I

:08:44.:08:47.

don't know if you can express to everybody, even though you were

:08:47.:08:52.

watching it on television. For those of us who were there, and we

:08:52.:08:56.

were right at the front, looking back at the royal flotilla and one

:08:56.:08:59.

of the boats, it was one of the most incredibly amazing things I

:08:59.:09:06.

have ever done. I was so proud to be part of it. You have spent a lot

:09:06.:09:11.

of time in the States, where they are very patriotic - it feels like

:09:11.:09:16.

this weekend, everybody has fallen back in the love with the Union

:09:16.:09:20.

Flag, the desire to be British. Absolutely, and I think we should

:09:20.:09:25.

be proud to fly the flag, proud of being British. BBC America are

:09:25.:09:30.

showing this, as we speak, to the United States. It is going out all

:09:30.:09:36.

over the world. So, as Kelly Holmes just said, it is time to put the

:09:36.:09:46.
:09:46.:09:46.

Great back in Great Britain. It is amazing. I did have an ear plug in

:09:46.:09:53.

my left ear yesterday. But those bells were so loud. They were loud

:09:53.:09:58.

when we were in the barge, but also, I was stood up most of the time on

:09:58.:10:05.

the side, waving to people. I thought, I have got to do this. But

:10:05.:10:15.
:10:15.:10:19.

they were very, very loud. I think it was three or four tons of bells.

:10:19.:10:26.

Thank you very much for joining us. Last night was incredible as well.

:10:26.:10:30.

I was one of the 70 million people watching at home. There were tens

:10:30.:10:35.

of thousands more on the Mall. Only one lady got a backstage pass.

:10:35.:10:43.

There was a few of us! This is her report. Sir Tom Jones, Sir Cliff

:10:43.:10:52.

Richard, Sir Paul McCartney. Cheryl Cole! JLS... It is going to be

:10:52.:11:02.
:11:02.:11:09.

amazing. This is the Queen's 1.3 million people applied for

:11:09.:11:14.

tickets, but with just 10,000 up for grabs, this lot are the lucky

:11:14.:11:21.

ones. Do you mind if I come and chat to you? This looks very

:11:21.:11:31.
:11:31.:11:32.

civilised indeed. You have got champagne! I know. A chocolate cake

:11:32.:11:39.

with a little crown on it. Everything about it is just...

:11:39.:11:46.

Isn't it beautiful? How does it feel to be here today? It is

:11:46.:11:56.
:11:56.:12:02.

awesome, we are so excited. Help yourself. No, I can't. Go on, it is

:12:02.:12:06.

the least I can do. This must be quite overwhelming, you're in the

:12:06.:12:11.

grounds of the Palace, you have got a wonderful packed lunch.

:12:11.:12:14.

cannot explain it, the feeling inside, to think that you're

:12:14.:12:18.

actually here, in the gardens, one of the they're few - it is

:12:18.:12:28.
:12:28.:12:40.

absolutely beautiful. -- one of the know? You seem so calm and composed.

:12:40.:12:44.

What's there to worry about? don't know. A huge concert for the

:12:44.:12:48.

Queen. It's going to be amazing. I don't know if you have noticed. I

:12:48.:12:51.

know there is a huge buzz at the front, but back here, everyone's

:12:51.:12:55.

really excited to get on tonight. Also, you have been hanging around

:12:55.:12:59.

the palace. You're kind of every day at the moment. This is my

:12:59.:13:03.

workplace at the moment. It has been an amazing two years because

:13:03.:13:07.

we started planning this two years ago. The fact we're here is amazing.

:13:07.:13:11.

Good luck tonight. We're so excited. Brilliant.

:13:11.:13:16.

# Put some whiskey in your water # Sugar in your tea

# What's all this crazy questions they're asking me?

:13:21.:13:24.

# This is the craziest party there could ever be

:13:24.:13:28.

# Don't turn on the lights # Cos I don't want to see

:13:28.:13:37.

# Mama told me not to come # She said - #

:13:37.:13:41.

I was here ten years ago for the Golden Jubilee. Now I am leer for

:13:41.:13:46.

the Diamond Jubilee, which is the - the ten years - I don't know what

:13:46.:13:50.

happened to that it went so quick. I hope the next ten years - I hope

:13:50.:13:54.

it doesn't go as quick as the last ten!

:13:54.:14:00.

# Smoking scares me half to death # When the Queen is there, I twitch,

:14:00.:14:06.

you know? She has that effect. # Mama told me not to come

:14:06.:14:12.

# Mama told me # She said "That ain't the way to

:14:12.:14:15.

have fun, son." # Do you feel the pressure? Do you

:14:15.:14:20.

feel the nerves? I felt fine about it, until somebody told me there

:14:20.:14:27.

was an audience of over a billion watching, then it was kind of like,

:14:27.:14:33.

oh, no pressure, then. # White lips

:14:33.:14:36.

# Pale face # Breathing in snowflakes

:14:36.:14:38.

# Burnt lungs # Sour taste #

:14:38.:14:42.

The stage looks cool. I remember watching the Golden Jubilee ten

:14:42.:14:45.

years ago. They had it in the other garden.

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:14:55.

Yeah. And Brian May was playing. It's a bit different. It's cool.

:14:55.:14:59.

Will.i.am! Continue-ton! We just spoke to Cheryl, who said she had

:14:59.:15:02.

been hanging around you today and that you were very excited about

:15:03.:15:08.

this huge British celebration today. I was really excited. I am still

:15:08.:15:13.

excited - a bit emotional, thrilled, blessed, honoured, humbled.

:15:13.:15:15.

# Here we come # Here we go.

:15:15.:15:20.

# We got to rock-rock-rock-rock # Easy come, easy go

:15:20.:15:25.

# Now we're on top-top-top-top # Body shock

:15:25.:15:29.

# Rocking no stop # I got a feeling

:15:29.:15:34.

# Ooh - ooh # It's so nice, everyone coming here.

:15:34.:15:40.

It is so nice. It didn't hit me how big it was until I was on stage.

:15:40.:15:45.

# Tonight is going to be a good, good night

:15:45.:15:49.

# And if you love me - # Do you know the Queen is a fan of

:15:49.:15:55.

the Black Eyed Peas? No, I didn't know. William and Harry definitely.

:15:55.:16:01.

They get down. I want to hang out with those dudes.

:16:01.:16:07.

# Say hell yeah! # Have you met the Queen before? I have years ago.

:16:07.:16:11.

Will you meet her tonight? I hope so. Will you practising your

:16:11.:16:17.

curtsey? I have been practising all day!

:16:17.:16:25.

# It's a quarter to 1.00 # And I need you now

:16:25.:16:30.

# Said I would cope # But I lost all control, and I

:16:30.:16:37.

need you now # This is fourth person I have spoken

:16:37.:16:41.

to today. There is a lot of us around, and there is a few Dames as

:16:41.:16:51.
:16:51.:16:52.

well! # You'll never know what it is like

:16:52.:16:59.

# It's like ice # You wind up behind the - #

:16:59.:17:07.

Great day, huh? The line-up is brilliant. There is some pop music,

:17:07.:17:12.

a lot of SirS. Richard Gary came over to see me. I said, "Who else

:17:12.:17:16.

is on the bill?" He started naming quite a diverse group of people. I

:17:16.:17:20.

thought it was a good idea to get something in for the young kids,

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:52.

something in for the old kids. Oh, it was such a wonderful evening.

:17:52.:17:58.

Amazing. It really was. We're now joined by one of last night's

:17:58.:18:04.

performance, Sgugs from Madness. How are you? I am good, a little

:18:04.:18:07.

bit rough around the edges, but it was an emotional night. It was

:18:07.:18:11.

incredible what you guys did. You were at the top of Buckingham

:18:11.:18:15.

Palace performing to so many people out there with fireworks. How did

:18:15.:18:22.

it feel? It was amazing. We rehearsed Saturday, and it was

:18:22.:18:27.

amazing to get to see the panoply of London's skyline. It was empty

:18:27.:18:32.

when we rehearsed, but then to see the Mall and all the people...

:18:32.:18:40.

you can see it properly, and I have to say the graphics on top of the

:18:40.:18:43.

palace just enhanced the performance. That's it. We weren't

:18:43.:18:48.

just a backing band! Not at all! The guys with the graphics said to

:18:48.:18:52.

me, "Do you like the idea of me turning Buckingham Palace into a

:18:52.:18:57.

block of flats?" I said the only time I had a view like that is when

:18:57.:19:02.

I lived in the flats I lived in as a kid. Did you have slight vertigo

:19:02.:19:07.

up there? I do suffer from vertigo, actually, but I was so excited, I

:19:07.:19:11.

was a bit away with the fairies. I kept having to remember I was up

:19:11.:19:16.

there to do something, not just enjoy myself - sing the song, for

:19:16.:19:22.

instance. I wasn't too bothered about the vertigo, no. It's 2.00pm.

:19:22.:19:27.

You still have the sunglasses on. How was the party? Those eyes look

:19:27.:19:32.

OK. It's not too bad - kind of bright we did stay up for a time

:19:32.:19:36.

watching the news clips. And how was the party at the palace? It was

:19:36.:19:41.

extraordinary, and there were so many Princes, Harry and Edward and

:19:41.:19:45.

Andrew and the other one - William. Funnily enough, our keyboard player

:19:45.:19:52.

got a bit overwhelmed. Paul Chowdhry came -- Paul McCartney

:19:52.:19:57.

came over to him and said hello, and he was like, what are we doing

:19:57.:20:02.

here, Madness?! All of this encouragement we have been

:20:02.:20:06.

receiving from the public among Queen and the parties, we're doing

:20:06.:20:12.

a tour in November. We're starting at Butlins and ending up at the O2

:20:12.:20:17.

in December. It will be novel to be back on stage instead of on top of

:20:17.:20:20.

a building. Well done. Congratulations.

:20:20.:20:24.

Yes. Well done. If you have just joined us, welcome to the last day

:20:24.:20:30.

of the Diamond Jubilee weekend here In 20 minutes, that lunch at the

:20:30.:20:34.

Palace of Westminster will end, and the Queen will leave in a carriage

:20:34.:20:38.

procession and come back here - Parliament Square, Whitehall,

:20:38.:20:42.

Trafalgar Square. This is the route for you. They'll be leaving

:20:42.:20:45.

Westminster Hall. They'll be travelling up Whitehall past the

:20:45.:20:49.

Cenotaph and up to Trafalgar Square, and then it's a left-hand turn

:20:49.:20:57.

through Admiralty Arch and along the Mall and just passing Saint

:20:57.:21:01.

James' Park there towards the Queen Victoria Memorial where the concert

:21:01.:21:06.

took place last night towards the central gates and into the palace

:21:06.:21:08.

before the appearance on the balcony in a short while. Coming up

:21:08.:21:14.

in the next hour, we'll be joined by more special guests. We'll have

:21:14.:21:19.

Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Terry Wogan, Andrew Bunton, Ronny Corbett, the

:21:19.:21:25.

list goes on. We'll also be talking to David Cameron and one of his

:21:25.:21:28.

predecessors, Sir John Major. Before that, the chance to take

:21:28.:21:35.

stock a about the day so far with our Royal correspondent Nicholas

:21:35.:21:39.

Witchell. The morning service, what did you make of it? For the Queen I

:21:39.:21:42.

am sure it's one of the major features of the weekend. We know

:21:42.:21:51.

how important her faith is to her. I think she looked very relaxed -

:21:51.:21:54.

as relaxed as you can be in a service of that kind. The news

:21:54.:21:58.

about her husband must be reassuring. We haven't been getting

:21:58.:22:03.

any details by Buckingham Palace, but as we were reporting last night,

:22:03.:22:07.

there was no concern about his health as there was six months ago.

:22:07.:22:10.

I think he'll emerge from the hospital and rejoin the Queen for

:22:10.:22:13.

the rest of the Jubilee programme. The members of the Royal Family

:22:13.:22:19.

were looking relaxed. I think the Queen, as she always does, was

:22:19.:22:22.

paying close attention to the sermon by the Archbishop of

:22:22.:22:27.

Canterbury, a trenchant sermon, looking at it from a theological

:22:27.:22:32.

perspective, trenchant remarks about financial greed and other

:22:32.:22:38.

remarks. The Queen listening very, very carefully. They had rearranged

:22:38.:22:43.

the seating, moved her back so she was sitting with her family instead

:22:44.:22:47.

of alongside her husband. There was an important component I think will

:22:47.:22:52.

have mattered for her. Now fingered crossed once again for the weather.

:22:52.:22:57.

Those carriages could be closed, but I can't imagine it would be

:22:57.:22:59.

closed unless it was absolutely pouring down, and I think we'll see

:22:59.:23:04.

the Queen in a carriage with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of

:23:04.:23:08.

Cornwall, so a another rearrangement in view of the

:23:08.:23:11.

absence of the Duke of Edinburgh. You have travelled a lot in the

:23:11.:23:14.

last few months as part of the celebration. What has been the

:23:14.:23:16.

impact on the country, do you think? It's interesting. I think

:23:16.:23:21.

that this Jubilee has a bigger and more spectacular feel than ten

:23:21.:23:25.

years ago with the Golden Jubilee. Let's face it - many of the

:23:25.:23:29.

sentiments that are being expressed now were expressed ten years ago.

:23:29.:23:32.

We were all here seeing the Golden Jubilee. I think there is an

:23:32.:23:35.

important difference. It is this: the family is more united now.

:23:35.:23:40.

They're ten years older now. They have had the addition of one new

:23:40.:23:43.

significant face within the woifl. I think they're more together. I

:23:43.:23:47.

think they're more at ease amongst themselves and with the country. I

:23:47.:23:50.

think Prince Charles is far more at ease than he was ten years ago. I

:23:50.:23:54.

think the Queen is now much more at ease with herself, more relaxed,

:23:54.:23:59.

and it is showing, so despite the difficulties, despite the downpours

:23:59.:24:03.

Sunday, despite the absence of the Duke of Edinburgh for half of this

:24:04.:24:06.

weekend, in a funny way I think it's building up and will be

:24:06.:24:10.

remembered - and we'll have to wait to see what she says in her

:24:10.:24:17.

broadcast at 6.00pm this evening in her Jubilee when she thanks people,

:24:17.:24:21.

that it will have been a success. Thank you. We have been talking to

:24:21.:24:25.

lots of people giving us their thoughts on what has been going on

:24:25.:24:31.

around this Jubilee. Here's some more voices.

:24:31.:24:37.

We are Diversity, and we met the Queen at the 2009 Royal Variety

:24:37.:24:40.

Performance. The idea is we were soldiers designed to protect the

:24:40.:24:46.

Queen and our kind of powers - or our dance skills is how we showed

:24:46.:24:53.

that off. When they sat us down and told us about the etiquette of

:24:53.:24:59.

"ma'am" and "jam" and all of this... It went in one ear and out and

:24:59.:25:03.

crumbled. I don't think I said one word when I met her. I think it's

:25:03.:25:07.

the first time the Queen has ever seen a street dance performance. I

:25:07.:25:12.

hope it made a good impression. gave us the confidence that if we

:25:12.:25:15.

can do a show like that we could really go forward in our careers

:25:15.:25:19.

and make our mark on the world of entertainment. A magnificent scene,

:25:19.:25:24.

the Household Cavalry waiting. The Sovereign's Escort patiently

:25:24.:25:28.

waiting for the lunch in Westminster Hall to come to an end,

:25:28.:25:34.

a lunch involving some 700 people - the City Livery Companies, and the

:25:34.:25:39.

Blues and Royals and the lifeguards smartly turned out waiting for the

:25:39.:25:44.

Queen to emerge, and then they'll escort the Royal carriages back to

:25:44.:25:47.

Whitehall and over to Buckingham Palace. That's coming up in just a

:25:47.:25:53.

few minutes, and with me to chat about the weekend and - we were all

:25:53.:26:01.

oohing and awing over the scene there - Ronnie Corbett, Emma Bunton,

:26:01.:26:04.

thank you for being with us. Last weekend's concert, what did you

:26:04.:26:08.

make of it? It was incredible. There were some amazing stars. I

:26:08.:26:12.

was lucky enough to be in the Golden Jubilee. We were in the back

:26:12.:26:14.

garden, but this of course was taking part in the front. It was

:26:14.:26:17.

amazing to watch on the telly, but the whole coverage for me has been

:26:17.:26:21.

so wonderful, and also, London has looked so beautiful even with the

:26:21.:26:24.

rain, but this whole backdrop - it's been incredible to watch at

:26:24.:26:28.

home, and I have been to street parties and I have had my own

:26:28.:26:33.

little party at home, my own barbecue. I just love the fact we

:26:33.:26:36.

come together at this time. remember ten years ago you were on

:26:36.:26:43.

one of those big floats. That's right, with the famous champ...

:26:43.:26:47.

Whatever his name was! Yes, we came down here on the float, that's

:26:47.:26:52.

right. And I also - because the picnic went on behind Buckingham

:26:52.:26:55.

Palace... Yes. Remember, with the children? And I played the Queen's

:26:55.:27:00.

butler, so I was actually on the premises. Amazing And walked on the

:27:00.:27:05.

stage with her, so I was quite thrilled. What have you made of the

:27:05.:27:11.

weekend's events? Have you enjoyed it? Unbelievable, really wonderful,

:27:11.:27:18.

so spectacularly lovely, and she and the Duke - I mean, showing

:27:18.:27:25.

immense patience and - for their age. Sunday. Yes, hanging on to it.

:27:25.:27:29.

I loved Sunday. Emma, from your point of view - we were just about

:27:29.:27:32.

to see what was going on in that lunch, but just your thoughts on

:27:32.:27:37.

what has been achieved this weekend. How special has it been? It has

:27:37.:27:40.

been so special! And on Sunday, when you were just talking about

:27:40.:27:46.

when she was on the bam, it was so lovely when you saw her space like

:27:46.:27:49.

when you saw the war horse on top of the National Theatre, her face

:27:49.:27:55.

just lit up. I think it has been absolutely amazing. Let's go back

:27:55.:28:00.

to Westminster Hall. Your Royal highnesses, my Lords, ladies and

:28:00.:28:05.

gentlemen, pray silence for the Lord Speaker, the Right honourable

:28:05.:28:15.
:28:15.:28:15.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:28:15.:29:14.

Your Royal Highnesses, my Lords, The anthem plained by the National

:29:14.:29:17.

Children's Orchestra of Great Britain.

:29:17.:29:22.

-- played. The Duke of Cambridge surveying the scene there. The

:29:22.:29:26.

lunch is just coming to an end. The formal toast has been made, so

:29:26.:29:30.

within a few minutes I think we can expect to see the royal party

:29:30.:29:33.

preparing to leave Westminster Hall. There'll be a few minutes' delay

:29:33.:29:38.

before that happens and then they will emerge from the North Door,

:29:38.:29:42.

including the Duchess of Cambridge, and they'll take their places in

:29:42.:29:45.

the carriage procession to return to Buckingham Palace. The Prince of

:29:45.:29:50.

Wales is enjoying a chat there with the hosts at his table. All of

:29:50.:29:54.

these hosts are senior members of livery companies in the City, who

:29:54.:29:57.

do so much work for charities around the year. Lots of the guests

:29:57.:30:01.

are young people who are people who've either benefited from the

:30:01.:30:05.

charitable work that goes on or people who are associated with the

:30:05.:30:14.

work. The Queen now is ready to leave Westminster Hall after lunch.

:30:14.:30:20.

The wand of the Marquis of Cholmondley, the Lord Great

:30:20.:30:26.

Chamberlain. He is in charge of the Palace of Westminster, principally

:30:26.:30:30.

the Robing Room, but Westminster Hall is under the joint

:30:30.:30:40.
:30:40.:30:46.

jurisdiction of several officers in Other members too are preparing to

:30:46.:30:50.

leave. Final arrangements to be made there. Ronnie Corbett and Emma

:30:50.:30:57.

Bunton are still with me. It's a splendid scene isn't it, and all of

:30:57.:31:02.

it is taking place within Westminster Hall, a myrrh sent

:31:02.:31:05.

building. And everybody is doing their job so well, all moving at

:31:05.:31:15.

the right time. Moving like clockwork. And the catering is by

:31:15.:31:20.

Heston Blumenthal I think. People leaving the concert last

:31:21.:31:26.

night were clutching their picnics very tightly. Very delicious.

:31:27.:31:32.

didn't want to leave any of it behind. They were hanging on to

:31:32.:31:36.

those baskets for a long time. Just celebrating this weekend is

:31:36.:31:39.

something that lots of people enjoy doing and lots of people are taking

:31:39.:31:44.

advantage of the fact that we are on an extended bank holiday, two

:31:44.:31:48.

bank holidays to add on to the weekend. It is at a time when

:31:48.:31:51.

Prince Charles said last night the economy is in a tough state. That's

:31:51.:31:55.

right. Lots of people are suffering, lots of people are out of work and

:31:55.:31:58.

people think this is a good thing to do to cheer people up, would you

:31:58.:32:04.

agree with that? I would agree, yes. People cared very deeply this

:32:04.:32:10.

weekend. Absolutely. More than the last time. One of the great things,

:32:10.:32:14.

Emma, last night was when we saw the concert, you got a real sense,

:32:14.:32:17.

not just the fireworks and the great artists that were involved,

:32:17.:32:22.

and you know all about it from 2002. The amount of work that goes into a

:32:22.:32:28.

concert like that. Unbelievable. is astonishing. The people work so

:32:28.:32:33.

hard, and Gary Barlow, who put so much into the show. He e-mailed so

:32:33.:32:38.

many people to come and join. It was amazing to watch. And I love

:32:38.:32:41.

the traditions. I loved the lighting of the beacon last night.

:32:41.:32:45.

That was so important, so special. It's been really magnificent. I

:32:45.:32:52.

love the traditions. I love the street parties. I love the bunting.

:32:52.:32:59.

Naturally you love the bunting, you being a Bunton. Seems like a good

:32:59.:33:05.

moment to say thank you both very much. Thank you. Lovely to see you.

:33:05.:33:08.

Thank you. Back to the Palace of Westminster to see what's going on

:33:08.:33:14.

there. We can update... Ah, that's a great sight, the Yeomen of the

:33:14.:33:20.

Guard, who are one of the oldest royal bodyguards, formed by Henry

:33:20.:33:27.

VII, after the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. They were put together to

:33:27.:33:31.

help the King protect himself, because Henry VII was a King who

:33:31.:33:35.

needed a lot of protection at that time. The yoement of the guard are

:33:35.:33:41.

in place and we often see them at times like this, as they are there

:33:41.:33:46.

to form a guard of honour for the Queen. This is the scene outside

:33:46.:33:50.

Westminster half. The kind of carriage that we've come to expect.

:33:50.:33:56.

The carriage procession will make its way out of New Palace Yard into

:33:56.:34:00.

Parliament Square, and then along Whitehall, in a scene that lots of

:34:00.:34:04.

people who've been queuing all day will be delighted to see. Although

:34:04.:34:08.

the cars were impressive, the cars and the carriages and horses are

:34:08.:34:12.

what it is all about. That's at the heart of the tradition of these

:34:12.:34:22.
:34:22.:34:23.

great proessential events. -- processional events. The 1902

:34:23.:34:26.

great State Landau is going to be the one used by the Queen and

:34:26.:34:30.

probably by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall too. We'll

:34:30.:34:37.

have to see how they configure these today. The 1902 is a grand

:34:37.:34:44.

carriage. It was made for Ed ward VII for his Coronation in 1902. But

:34:45.:34:49.

when that Coronation happened Edward VII had been suffering from

:34:49.:34:53.

ill health and they scaled down the organisation of that Coronation, so

:34:53.:34:58.

the carriage wasn't used until later in that year, 1902. The

:34:58.:35:07.

carriage is still in perfect working order today.

:35:07.:35:13.

One of the great sights of these days, these traditional ceremonies

:35:14.:35:19.

that we have, Mounted Bands of the Household Cavalry. They are well on

:35:19.:35:23.

their way down The Mall, because they are making their way towards

:35:24.:35:28.

Buckingham Palace right now and entertaining the crowds as they go.

:35:28.:35:31.

But really fulfilling an important function. The drum horses there,

:35:31.:35:35.

great favourites among the crowd, the function being to announce that

:35:35.:35:41.

the sovereign will soon be on her way.

:35:41.:35:46.

And with me is the esteemed royal commentator and best-selling author,

:35:46.:35:52.

and a man who writes for the Daily Mail, Robert hardman. Nice to see

:35:52.:35:58.

you again. Where have you been? Paul's Cathedral. What did you make

:35:58.:36:03.

of it? Faith is incredibly important to the Queen, but the

:36:03.:36:06.

human touches, the way they changed things around to accommodate the

:36:06.:36:10.

fact the Duke wasn't there. And first class music. Music has been

:36:10.:36:13.

one of the great themes of this Jubilee, fantastic river on the

:36:13.:36:18.

river and last night, and more of it on The Mall in a few minutes.

:36:18.:36:22.

you think there's been a sense in which, we talked earlier about a

:36:23.:36:27.

rebranding or the re-emergence of a new profile of the monarchy over

:36:27.:36:33.

this weekend. Is it saying too much to say that? I think it's been on

:36:33.:36:36.

an upward trajectory since the Golden Jubilee. Certainly in the

:36:36.:36:39.

last year or two it's been marvellous. The wedding last year,

:36:39.:36:43.

the visit to Ireland, everything has been going in the right

:36:43.:36:46.

direction. And through it all the Queen herself hasn't changed one

:36:46.:36:52.

bit. She's stuck, she is very much the same person we saw in 1952, but

:36:52.:36:57.

she's been open to innovation and the institution she runs has come

:36:57.:37:04.

along in leaps and bounds under her watch. The Director of Music is

:37:04.:37:10.

riding Aerial. I must give you the details of the drum horses.

:37:10.:37:17.

Achilles and Mercury today. Lance Corporal Paul Darcy and Lance

:37:17.:37:21.

Corporal Paul Kent are riding the drum horses with the enormous

:37:21.:37:28.

kettle drums and the distinctive sound that they make. They'll be

:37:28.:37:32.

busy at work in a few weeks' time at the Queen's birthday parade of

:37:32.:37:35.

course as well, where they are one course as well, where they are one

:37:35.:37:45.
:37:45.:37:47.

of the prime features of Trooping the Colour.

:37:47.:37:57.
:37:57.:37:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:37:57.:39:28.

The fanfare signals that the Queen his white wand of office.

:39:28.:39:31.

He accompanys the Queen to the North Door of Westminster Hall.

:39:31.:39:36.

This is where the traditional carriage procession will begin.

:39:36.:39:42.

Black Rod on the left there. He is in charge of security and so much

:39:42.:39:47.

of the management of the House of Lords and is responsible for many

:39:47.:39:51.

events in whole ham. He was one of the prime organisers of today's

:39:51.:39:56.

lunch. He is also a Governor of the National Children's Orchestra, who

:39:56.:40:04.

are playing today. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess

:40:04.:40:10.

of Cornwall will accompany the Queen in the 1902 State Landau.

:40:10.:40:14.

Robert Hardman is still with me. That's what they have done to

:40:14.:40:18.

rearrange this procession? That's right. We've lost one of the

:40:18.:40:23.

originally three open carriages, the three landaus. We are now going

:40:23.:40:27.

to see two. Very neatly done. Obviously it would've been poignant

:40:27.:40:33.

but rather unkind to expect the Queen to travel on her own. And

:40:33.:40:38.

here again we see what we've seen lot in the Jubilee, the generations

:40:38.:40:42.

mixing it up. It is much of a team event. At the Golden Jubilee it was

:40:42.:40:48.

just the Queen and the Duke coming down The Mall in an open-top Range

:40:48.:40:54.

Rover, greeting the procession. Here we see all the family together.

:40:54.:40:58.

Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, she travelled with her daughter and

:40:58.:41:00.

daughter-in-law law. There are many echoes I think of that moment here

:41:00.:41:10.
:41:10.:41:10.

today as we see this. We are still enjoying dry weather

:41:11.:41:19.

as the trumpeters of the Household Cavalry signal that the Queen is on

:41:19.:41:23.

her way and that the Sovereign's Escort too is ready.

:41:23.:41:33.

CHEERING Two horses pulling the Queen's

:41:33.:41:40.

landau called Storm and Cloud. I theep that isn't an omen! This is -

:41:40.:41:48.

- I hope that that isn't an omen! This is what the crowd are waiting

:41:48.:41:51.

for. The river on Sunday was very much a charms II affair, the

:41:51.:41:58.

concert last night a 21st century affair, but this is timeless, the

:41:58.:42:03.

pageantry. This is what we saw at the Royal Wedding last year and on

:42:03.:42:08.

great occasions. We can see rain drops but the Queen is unperturbed.

:42:08.:42:12.

There was a back-up to put her in the Australian State Coach, the

:42:12.:42:19.

only one with central heating, but she said no thaw, it -- no thank

:42:19.:42:29.
:42:29.:42:30.

you, it may rain a bit but the people need to see me.

:42:30.:42:34.

There are first and second divisions of the Sovereign's Escort

:42:34.:42:39.

leading the way. The Queen's carriage passing the Cenotaph,

:42:39.:42:49.
:42:49.:42:49.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:42:49.:43:39.

and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince The Escort Commander, we caught a

:43:39.:43:45.

glimpse of him there of the Lifeguards.

:43:45.:43:49.

And there we can see the Field Officer of the Escort, Lieutenant

:43:49.:43:53.

Colonel Dan Hughes, we heard from him a while ago of the Blues and

:43:53.:44:03.
:44:03.:44:16.

Four divisions of the Household Cavalry, consisting of 116 men,

:44:16.:44:26.
:44:26.:44:35.

part of the Sovereign's Escort There we have a real sense of the

:44:35.:44:39.

procession itself and there we can see the blocks of the Sovereign's

:44:39.:44:42.

Escort, if you like, the great divisions. The first, second, third

:44:43.:44:47.

and fourth divisions of the Sovereign's Escort. On Horse Guards

:44:47.:44:50.

Parade the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery with their special

:44:50.:45:00.
:45:00.:45:02.

The Scarlett main dressings there, which have have made especially for

:45:02.:45:09.

the Diamond Jubilee. As we come down Whitehall we will

:45:09.:45:13.

see all the street liners there represent the three services from

:45:13.:45:17.

the Royal Navy, Army and airforce, it's when we turn to the Mall and

:45:17.:45:21.

head for home we see the streets there are going to be lined

:45:21.:45:27.

entirely by Foot Guards from the Household Division. There we see an

:45:27.:45:31.

Officer of the RAF and the Army. They'll be pleased to see some of

:45:31.:45:41.
:45:41.:45:49.

The route is somewhat longer than traditional for these things,

:45:49.:45:56.

because we are going around Trafalgar Square, a place full of

:45:56.:46:02.

Commonwealth reasonances with South Africa House and Canada House and

:46:02.:46:07.

going past the headquarters of the Commonwealth at Malborough House.

:46:07.:46:12.

This has been a big event, not just in Britain but all the 16 realms

:46:12.:46:16.

around the world which have the Queen as their head of state, from

:46:16.:46:26.

Canada and Australia, they've all taken a major role in this. Many

:46:26.:46:29.

have sent their Prime Ministers and we might all be back to work

:46:29.:46:37.

tomorrow, so is the Queen, she is having lunch with all 54 nations at

:46:37.:46:42.

Marlborough House. What a great view, Admiralty Arch. There you can

:46:42.:46:52.
:46:52.:46:55.

The crowds around Admiralty Arch. This was the vision really of

:46:55.:47:02.

Edward VII. He didn't live to see it completed.

:47:02.:47:09.

It was George V who presided over the opening of this new imperial

:47:09.:47:15.

avenue. All of it laid out as a memorial to

:47:15.:47:22.

Queen Victoria. The Queen is about to go past the

:47:22.:47:27.

memorial statue of her dear late father and the memorial she

:47:27.:47:33.

recently unveiled to the Queen Mother, coming up on the right.

:47:33.:47:39.

A poignant moment. This is a very happy day, lots of happy memories

:47:39.:47:49.
:47:49.:48:02.

of all these landmarks she's about Down past Clarence House and

:48:02.:48:12.
:48:12.:48:30.

The Blues and Royals and their dark navy tunics.

:48:30.:48:35.

In 1897 there were 50,000 troops on the streets for the Queen

:48:35.:48:41.

Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, today there is about 160. And just over

:48:41.:48:44.

1,000 members of the other armed forces but it's still a great

:48:44.:48:48.

spectacle. It's not all about imperial clout today. It's about

:48:48.:48:58.
:48:58.:49:05.

spectacle. But that's one of the John Nelson. The head coachman Mark

:49:05.:49:08.

Hargreaves today. Both of them very experienced, and they'll be working

:49:08.:49:18.
:49:18.:49:27.

again for the Queen's birthday I think the crowds are larger here

:49:27.:49:37.

than they were for the Royal wedding. 20, 30-deep in places.

:49:37.:49:43.

Royal Standard, a sense of its size and how impressive that is. They

:49:43.:49:47.

have standards in different sizes but you can rest assured they

:49:47.:49:53.

really pulled out the best one in the drawer. And that's the view

:49:53.:49:57.

from within St James' Park. You are right, that gives a sense of the

:49:57.:50:01.

depth of the crowd. It's worth remembering it was the

:50:01.:50:06.

scenes on the last day of the Golden Jubilee which formed the

:50:06.:50:11.

backbone of the bid video London took when it was bidding for the

:50:11.:50:15.

Olympics, the scenes of the Golden Jubilee is when Lord Coe and his

:50:15.:50:19.

team said to the International Olympic Committee look how we put

:50:19.:50:23.

on a party. That's really what helped win London the Olympics. I

:50:23.:50:26.

think there will be many reasonances of that. We are going

:50:26.:50:30.

to see that over again shortly when they open up the roads and crowds

:50:30.:50:36.

come pouring down. We are in for some of the great sights of 2012 in

:50:36.:50:46.
:50:46.:50:54.

It was a very nice speech last night. It hit the right note, I

:50:54.:51:02.

think. There was due formality, and then mummy. A dig at some of the

:51:02.:51:06.

comedians who had been having a pop at the Royal Family early on. One

:51:06.:51:09.

of the most touching moments, it's often the unscripted things we

:51:09.:51:13.

remember from these great occasions, but as he expressed his good wishes

:51:13.:51:19.

for the Duke of Edinburgh and suddenly you heard the crowd

:51:19.:51:22.

chanting "Philip, Philip", I never heard anyone chanting like that

:51:22.:51:26.

before and this morning as the Queen arrived at St Paul's, you

:51:26.:51:31.

could hear this chant of "God Save the Queen", you don't get that sort

:51:31.:51:36.

of chanting at Royal events. But these last few days have definitely

:51:36.:51:41.

triggered something and it doesn't really matter there is perceived

:51:41.:51:45.

setbacks, whether it's the weather or illness, they've all in a sense

:51:45.:51:50.

helped to elevate the affection for the Queen even more. They have a

:51:50.:51:55.

sense of she will just carry on regardless, whatever adversity

:51:55.:51:59.

throws at her and here, as she heads for home, look at the smile

:51:59.:52:09.

Into the arena, where last night's concert took place and the stands

:52:09.:52:14.

are still here and thousands of people in them. It's tailor-made

:52:14.:52:20.

for a grand finale. It's a brilliant set. I think it's six

:52:20.:52:23.

Royal Festival Halls on one one site, it's an enormous logistical

:52:23.:52:27.

operation and it's great. It does allow lots more people to see it

:52:27.:52:31.

than normally would. This is where we get a bird's eye view from the

:52:31.:52:41.
:52:41.:52:44.

There we are. You get a real sense of the colour,

:52:44.:52:52.

the sweep, we just saw the Sovereign Standard of the

:52:52.:53:02.
:53:02.:53:38.

Lifeguards. A very nice shot of some of the

:53:38.:53:43.

coachmen, wearing the state livery, some are so precious they have to

:53:43.:53:46.

actually find a coachman that will fit the uniform, rather than the

:53:46.:53:56.
:53:56.:53:58.

There you see the contrast, this is the soft yellow bath stone of the

:53:58.:54:01.

old Palace, as opposed to the hard white stone of the front. It's a

:54:01.:54:05.

contrast. It is. There is a contrast on the inside, one half

:54:05.:54:15.
:54:15.:54:24.

has just been cleaned and that side This is where the Queen and the

:54:24.:54:30.

other members of the Royal Family will settle down inside the Palace

:54:30.:54:34.

for a while, before they then appear on the balcony. That will be

:54:34.:54:39.

one of the iconic moments of this Jubilee. It absolutely will. Not

:54:39.:54:44.

only the Battle of Britain Flight and the Irish Guards down below

:54:44.:54:49.

attempting a great feat of arms, a feu de joie, ripple of gunfire

:54:49.:54:56.

which is difficult to do. It's a technique which was pinched off

:54:57.:55:01.

Napoleonic troops and was perfected for the Queen's 80th birth Kay and

:55:01.:55:04.

-- birthday and she loved it then, I think it's one of the reasons

:55:04.:55:08.

they've decided to do it again today. There is the Colonel of the

:55:08.:55:12.

Irish Guards, the Duke of Cambridge who wore their uniform on his

:55:12.:55:22.
:55:22.:55:30.

That is a presentation of a posy by tpeup tpeup -- Philipa Jackson who

:55:30.:55:36.

would have been in a third carriage if there had been one today. A

:55:36.:55:39.

tradition, and it's left in the carriage for the Queen on certain

:55:39.:55:49.
:55:49.:55:54.

events but presented here today There we see the guard of honour, a

:55:54.:56:00.

large guard of honour today. Robert has told us it's the 1st Battalion

:56:00.:56:03.

Irish Guards and with the band of the regiment and pipes and drums

:56:03.:56:11.

and they're ready for the ceremon ceremonial events that are to come.

:56:11.:56:15.

And Robert is still with me. I am wondering before we have a flavour

:56:15.:56:18.

of what's going on in the Mall, we will do that in a second, because

:56:18.:56:24.

as you say the crowds are building, when they appear on the balcony

:56:24.:56:29.

there behind us, a sense of what that image will mean. I think to

:56:29.:56:33.

the Queen it will mean, well, apart from the fact it will mean this is

:56:33.:56:38.

the climax t will mean I really can reflect on these four days. I can

:56:38.:56:42.

reflect on the fact this has gone probably far better than anyone

:56:42.:56:49.

expected. With the obvious exception, the Duke missing the

:56:50.:56:53.

final part of celebrations. Whatever the fate has thrown at

:56:53.:56:56.

these events, none of it has dampened it and the Queen has

:56:56.:57:02.

genuinely loved every minute of it. There are experts on Queen smiles

:57:02.:57:07.

can detect different levels and we have seen some absolutely genuine

:57:07.:57:11.

smiles today. I think when she looks down the full length of the

:57:11.:57:15.

Mall and sees those crowds, hundreds of thousands, I don't know

:57:15.:57:19.

how many are in the streets? Let's get a sense, we will join Chris

:57:19.:57:23.

Hollins there for us. Thank you very much, Huw. We see

:57:23.:57:28.

the crowds behind us here. They've been waiting very, very patiently

:57:28.:57:34.

all morning. They managed to see the Queen. Was it worth the wait to

:57:34.:57:40.

see the Queen? Yes. Fantastic. You gave her a good wave. At what time

:57:40.:57:50.

did you get here? 1.00 yesterday. And was it worth it? Absolutely

:57:50.:57:56.

worth it. Every minute. Seeing you was the best bit. Thank you very

:57:56.:58:00.

much. Flattery will get you everywhere. You get a real global

:58:00.:58:04.

feel about the audience today. People have come from everywhere,

:58:04.:58:10.

United States, people from Columbia, Russia. They all want to be part of

:58:10.:58:14.

this enormous pageantry. You can see the the fun and excitement on

:58:14.:58:20.

their faces. Chris, thank you very much.

:58:20.:58:24.

More to come, of course. That fly- past and the balcony appearance. We

:58:24.:58:27.

will be back with Chris in a while. We will also be hearing from the

:58:27.:58:30.

Prime Minister, we saw the Prime Minister and his wife at St Paul's

:58:30.:58:33.

this morning. We will be talking to the Prime Minister in a few minutes.

:58:33.:58:38.

We also received a tribute, which is a tribute that's been delivered

:58:38.:58:42.

for the Queen from the White House. This is what the President had to

:58:42.:58:47.

Majesty, on the historic occasion of your Diamond Jubilee Michelle

:58:47.:58:52.

and I send you and all the British people and members of the

:58:52.:58:55.

Commonwealth the heart-felt congratulations of the American

:58:55.:58:59.

people War and in peace, in times of plenty and in times of hardship,

:58:59.:59:02.

the United States and the United Kingdom have shared a special

:59:02.:59:08.

relationship. We've stood tall and strong and together we faced some

:59:08.:59:14.

of the greatest challenges this world has known. While many

:59:14.:59:19.

presidents and Prime Ministers have come and gone, Your Majesty's reign

:59:19.:59:25.

has endired. As I said last year at Buckingham Palace that makes Your

:59:25.:59:29.

Majesty a witness to the alliance and a chief source of its

:59:29.:59:34.

resilience. As a steadfast ally, loyal friend and tireless leader.

:59:35.:59:40.

Your Majesty has said an example of resolve that will long be

:59:40.:59:45.

celebrated. As we work together to provide a better future for the

:59:45.:59:48.

next generation it is gratifying to know that the bonds between our

:59:48.:59:52.

nations are indispensable, to our two countries and to the world

:59:52.:59:56.

Honour of your 60 extraordinary years on the throne, communities

:59:56.:00:00.

across the Commonwealth have lit thousands of Jubilee beacons. And

:00:00.:00:06.

may the light of ormajesty's crown continue to reign supreme for many

:00:06.:00:09.

years to come. The Diamond Jubilee tribute paid by President Obama.

:00:09.:00:14.

That came in from Washington just a short while ago. To recap, we will

:00:14.:00:18.

be talking to Prime Minister David Cameron in a short while. That's in

:00:18.:00:23.

Downing Street. Fiona Bruce will be talking to Mr Cameron. Back to St

:00:23.:00:27.

James's Park, because a real sense of the crowds building there too as

:00:27.:00:31.

we approach the climax of the day here. Back to our friends in St

:00:31.:00:37.

James's Park. Thank you Huw. Moments ago the

:00:37.:00:42.

royal carriage passed us here. Ladies, did you see the Queen go

:00:42.:00:46.

past? Sort of. We saw the top of the carriage. How long have you

:00:46.:00:55.

been here in St James's Park today? 7.30. We were the first people. Who

:00:55.:01:01.

came with you? My mum and her mum. Who did your face painting? My mum.

:01:01.:01:09.

She's done a lovely job. Would you like a royal biscuit? Sure!

:01:09.:01:15.

involved. Nice, feel free to share the biscuits here as well. If you

:01:15.:01:19.

thought Fearne's friends are impress to have have been here so

:01:19.:01:25.

early, this is Harriet. She splashed urgent on some very

:01:25.:01:28.

exclusive Jubilee accommodation. Tell us about your night's sleep

:01:28.:01:35.

last night? My five-star street of London accommodation was fantastic.

:01:35.:01:43.

12 of us have come down, including my mum, who was 72, and she came

:01:43.:01:48.

down for the Coronation. Three generations of my family. These are

:01:48.:01:53.

my nieces. We slept out. We had a brilliant night last night, dancing

:01:53.:01:56.

with policemen, dancing in the streets. We've had a fantastic

:01:56.:02:01.

night and we are now ready to go home. But not until you've seen the

:02:01.:02:05.

Queen and the balcony. You don't want to sleep in a tent on The Mall

:02:05.:02:11.

all night and miss that moment. Send my lover to your mum. I will.

:02:11.:02:14.

No royal celebration is complete without the crowds, the bunting,

:02:14.:02:20.

and, my favourite, royal memorabilia. Look at this.

:02:20.:02:24.

Souvenirs have been produced to mark royal occasions for over 300

:02:24.:02:28.

years, and right now shops are full of anything and everything marked

:02:28.:02:34.

Diamond Jubilee. But there is only one collection of memorabilia which

:02:34.:02:39.

comes with Her Majesty's approval. This is produced in Stoke-on-Trent.

:02:39.:02:44.

They have had to create something very special for this Jubilee year.

:02:44.:02:50.

Hate been through many sets of eyes, many incarnations before we

:02:50.:02:55.

presented it to the Queen. Fortunately she liked it and signed

:02:55.:02:59.

it off. Stoke-on-Trent has had an association with the ceramics

:02:59.:03:07.

industry for many years. These are made by skilled craftsmen and women.

:03:07.:03:12.

When we started the business never in our wildest dreams would we

:03:12.:03:18.

think we would be making china for the Queen's Jubilee. The royal

:03:18.:03:22.

collection makes Apple tiny part of the variety of souvenirs available.

:03:22.:03:28.

Some of us might buy one or two items but one lady in a London

:03:28.:03:32.

suburb has managed to top 10,000 over the past 32 years. There is no

:03:32.:03:38.

limit to what I buy in the shape of royal memorabilia. If I like it, I

:03:38.:03:41.

buy it. I was always interested in the Royal Family even as a little

:03:41.:03:46.

girl, because I'm four years older than Prince Charles, so I used to

:03:46.:03:49.

cut out photographs of him and Princess Anne. It grew from there.

:03:49.:03:58.

I have to have my house in section, -- sections because I can't stand

:03:58.:04:04.

my house mixed up. This is an egg cosy from 1887. I think they had

:04:04.:04:11.

larger eggs then than we do! This is Edward and Alexandra. Here we

:04:11.:04:18.

have George and Mary. This is where we come to my silver Jubilee room.

:04:18.:04:24.

There are a lot of mugs and plates brought out. Everybody had street

:04:24.:04:29.

parties. We dressed our children in red, white and blue crepe paper. It

:04:29.:04:34.

was a lovely old-fashioned time really when you look back on it now.

:04:34.:04:37.

This is my Diamond Jubilee collection, which is growing day by

:04:37.:04:41.

day and which I'm thrilled about. Here we have the Queen. When the

:04:41.:04:47.

sun shines on her handbag, she waves for us. Shis Solar Queen.

:04:47.:04:50.

I've met the Queen on four different occasions and it's the

:04:50.:04:55.

most magical feeling. You feel so uplifted and for days after you are

:04:55.:04:59.

just wandering around, off with the fairies really. It's the most

:04:59.:05:05.

wonderful feeling. And now joining news St James's Park is the lovely

:05:05.:05:09.

Paloma Faith everyone! CHEERING Have you had a lovely Jubilee

:05:09.:05:14.

weekend? I've had an amazing time. My album went to number two in the

:05:14.:05:18.

charts, so I've been celebrating that. And I was out in Soho

:05:19.:05:24.

yesterday looking at all the drag Queens that were dressed as the

:05:24.:05:29.

Queen. Amazing. Everyone is getting involved and having a lovely time.

:05:29.:05:34.

I want to talk to you. I love buying anything royal. Any royal

:05:34.:05:37.

memorabilia. Do you have anything yourself at home? I don't think I

:05:37.:05:44.

have, but I want to take all of this back. What's your favourite so

:05:44.:05:51.

far? Jelly and ice Crete. We have the Queen jelly, a wobblely Queen,

:05:51.:05:58.

with some ice cream from the Queen's scoop. I love that.

:05:58.:06:08.
:06:08.:06:09.

face is just ice cream. I love that a lot. Slightly ma cab ra. Thon one

:06:09.:06:15.

she is just chilling out in a tea cup. This is probably one of the

:06:15.:06:20.

more unusual ones. If you have eaten too much you can vomit into a

:06:20.:06:25.

Jubilee sick bag. And the colours, red or blue, it is up to you. I

:06:25.:06:30.

have one of these at home, a solar- powered Queen that waves, which is

:06:31.:06:38.

useless but brilliant. She is pro- environment. She is. Top Trump

:06:38.:06:43.

cards. A fan of these as a kid? These are good. We can ask each

:06:43.:06:49.

other questions about things like one's favourite yacht. Sure. Or a

:06:49.:06:53.

corgi et cetera. Or one favourite couple. Why not? One's favourite

:06:54.:07:00.

time of year. Can I bring in our male model, Jake Humphrey here.

:07:00.:07:10.
:07:10.:07:12.

Gorgeous! Hello! High-visibility diamond Liz! Would you wear that?

:07:12.:07:18.

You know me, I'm up for anything. And I have a royal tattoo as well.

:07:18.:07:26.

I've got a corgi. Thank you very much Paloma Faith everyone.

:07:26.:07:36.
:07:36.:07:38.

I took the initiative when I met the Queen. I said the reason I'm

:07:38.:07:42.

here today is I wham the Charge for Sport Relief. She asked how much I

:07:42.:07:50.

raised and I said, "�1 million. I wanted to si, "Make it �2 million"

:07:50.:07:54.

but I thought she wouldn't appreciate that. She asked if I was

:07:54.:08:00.

covered in goose fat and I said yes, but it is not as much fun as it

:08:00.:08:05.

looks. It made her smile a bit. I didn't get to meet her again until

:08:05.:08:09.

last year. She has the ability to make us feel special. When you've

:08:09.:08:13.

done something really tough for charity it is the icing on the cake.

:08:14.:08:18.

David wall yam there is. Some more thoughts on what's going

:08:18.:08:22.

on today. What's been going on for the past three or four days and the

:08:22.:08:27.

significance of it. We are going 10 Downing Street to join Fiona. Prime

:08:28.:08:33.

Minister, we saw you doing your reading at St Paul's this morning.

:08:33.:08:38.

How has your weekend been for you? It has been a mixture of things in

:08:38.:08:41.

my constituency, tiny village street parties, where the whole

:08:41.:08:47.

village turns out, and the huge events for which Thames river

:08:47.:08:51.

pageants and the service at St Paul's. We've seen the best of

:08:51.:08:54.

Britain, people coming together to celebrate the Queen's Diamond

:08:54.:08:59.

Jubilee. But we've also seen a great resilience, people wanting to

:08:59.:09:03.

celebrate even though the weather's been pretty bad, and an

:09:03.:09:07.

extraordinary resilience on behalf of Her Majesty, who despite of all

:09:07.:09:11.

the problems and difficulties have kept going with incredible spirit.

:09:11.:09:17.

She is a real inspiration. In 1981 you were camped out on The Mall for

:09:17.:09:22.

Charles and Diana's wedding, is that right? The weather then was

:09:22.:09:25.

very good but it was fun. I remember spending the night there

:09:26.:09:30.

and the party atmosphere and watching some of your TV coverage

:09:30.:09:33.

just now and seeing the people who slept in the park last night and

:09:34.:09:39.

having a party, it took me back to what it was like then. I know you

:09:39.:09:42.

were country dancing in your constituency and you had a street

:09:42.:09:45.

party in Number Ten? That's right. We had a street party half outside,

:09:45.:09:50.

we had the Scouts outside, and quite a lot of elderly people

:09:50.:09:54.

coming through a number of different local charities. We

:09:54.:09:57.

brought them together for a street party, which was agreement it was a

:09:57.:10:00.

rel opportunities to bring people into this extraordinary building

:10:00.:10:04.

and use all the rooms that we've got to have our own celebration.

:10:04.:10:09.

But with my family I've been down in Oxfordshire, very small villages,

:10:09.:10:13.

very small events, but everyone turns up. There was country dance

:10:13.:10:17.

but there were no cameras. I'm quite pleased about that. I'm sure

:10:17.:10:22.

we are all relieved about that, Were at the concert last What did

:10:22.:10:26.

you make of that? It was magnificent. The combination of

:10:26.:10:30.

incredible old stars and some new stars, opera, popular music, I

:10:30.:10:35.

thought the lighting up of Buckingham Palace, I don't know how

:10:35.:10:39.

they did that but it was absolutely brilliant. It was a great night.

:10:39.:10:43.

What this weekend shows we've got this incredible institution, the

:10:43.:10:49.

monarchy, which people revere and love. It brings the country

:10:49.:10:53.

together. It is above politics. We are also great with our culture and

:10:53.:10:58.

our music and all the vibrancy of a modern country. I thought last

:10:58.:11:02.

night really showed that in a sensationally exciting way.

:11:02.:11:07.

have your own briefings with the Queen every week. How significant,

:11:07.:11:11.

how important are they to you? are very important, because he she

:11:11.:11:14.

is a very important part of the institution. This weekly meeting of

:11:14.:11:19.

trying to set out the problems and challenges the country faces and

:11:19.:11:24.

some of the global challenges is a very useful exercise in itself, but

:11:24.:11:29.

also Her Majesty has seen 11 other promise. She knows every member of

:11:29.:11:34.

state. She's travelled to virtually every country in the world. Her

:11:34.:11:37.

knowledge, experience and good old- fashioned common sense is very hard

:11:37.:11:45.

to beat. Prime Minister, thank you very much. Thank you.

:11:45.:11:49.

A sense here of the crowds building because there is not long to go

:11:49.:11:54.

before we have that spectacular fly-past by the ra. The crowds are

:11:55.:11:59.

surging towards Admiraltyry arch and being held back by that line of

:11:59.:12:04.

police at the moment, but they will gradual I will be allowed to flow

:12:04.:12:09.

down The Mall towards the Queen Victoria ma moral and Buckingham

:12:09.:12:14.

Palace itself. You get a real sense of the crowd that is now building

:12:14.:12:21.

along The Mall and all of them flowing out from St James's park on

:12:21.:12:27.

the southern side of The Mall on to the great expanse of The Mall

:12:27.:12:32.

itself. But it does give you a true sense of the size and the strength

:12:32.:12:36.

of this crowd. It reminds us a little of the crowd here last night

:12:36.:12:39.

for the concert, which was indeed impressive. Chris Hollins is there

:12:39.:12:43.

for us and can give us a better sense of what's going on and the

:12:43.:12:47.

mood there. Thank you Huw. As ever everybody is

:12:47.:12:52.

really looking forward to that moment they can walk down The Mall

:12:52.:12:55.

and surround Buckingham Palace. They seem quiet at the moment...

:12:55.:12:59.

CHEERING Look at these beautiful faces

:12:59.:13:03.

painted with the Union Flag there. You are looking a bit tired. What

:13:03.:13:07.

time were you here yesterday? O'clock but prior to that I had

:13:07.:13:15.

camped out for the river pageant. So you have really gone full out?

:13:15.:13:18.

Absolutely soaked. I've probably got trench foot by now I would

:13:18.:13:24.

think. But it is worth it isn't it? It is amazing. It looks as if the

:13:24.:13:32.

Queen has Lent you one of her Where are you from? You were here

:13:32.:13:37.

for the 50, 60 and you will be for the 70? Excellent. People from

:13:38.:13:43.

India in the background. You get a sense of a real global event. You

:13:43.:13:49.

are all ready to go towards Buckingham Palace. Some of them are

:13:50.:13:55.

a bit shy. That's the sort of enthusiasm we

:13:55.:13:59.

have been looking for. How are you feeling? Wonderful, thank you.

:13:59.:14:04.

Where are you from? Canada. So many people from the Commonwealth here,

:14:04.:14:09.

all wanting to share in this fantastic moment, the Jubilee.

:14:09.:14:14.

hours, it was worth the 24-hour wait. That's what makes Great

:14:14.:14:16.

Britain great. Thank you very much indeed.

:14:16.:14:20.

There you have it summed up in a few words.

:14:21.:14:25.

The very orderly flow of people down the Mall.

:14:25.:14:35.
:14:35.:14:37.

They're managed by the police and Steadily making their way down, I

:14:37.:14:40.

think we can guarantee the Mall will be packed by the time this

:14:40.:14:44.

flow of people has been allowed to make its way all the way down to

:14:44.:14:54.
:14:54.:14:56.

the railings in front of Buckingham And still they run along, people

:14:56.:15:03.

joining from Trafalgar Square and Whitehall itself. A couple of

:15:03.:15:06.

umbrellas in evidence, but some up for a bit of show, they don't

:15:06.:15:16.
:15:16.:15:22.

really need them. Happily, it's That's the crowd making its way

:15:22.:15:25.

through Admiralty Arch, the three great arches open and two small

:15:25.:15:33.

pedestrian arches. The steady progress of the front

:15:33.:15:39.

row. Very similar to the scenes that we

:15:39.:15:46.

were talking about ten years ago for the Golden Jubilee and it's

:15:46.:15:50.

quite clear that those scenes are going to be matched again.

:15:50.:15:58.

What an impressive sight. The Mall, with the enormous Union

:15:58.:16:08.
:16:08.:16:10.

flags hanging from the trees either The flags of the different nations

:16:10.:16:14.

of the UK fluttering there and different nations across the world

:16:14.:16:24.
:16:24.:16:32.

and the Commonwealth fluttering in They know what to wait for, because

:16:32.:16:35.

they know they're going to get that appearance on the balcony in a

:16:35.:16:40.

while, but they also know there's to be a fly-past. I should explain

:16:40.:16:46.

that the fly-past will involve 18 aircraft, flying over Buckingham

:16:46.:16:52.

Palace. There will be 1,000-1,500 feet in terms of their height and

:16:52.:16:57.

in terms of the range of their flights. They'll be going over

:16:57.:16:59.

Buckingham Palace at low level and it will be impressive because of

:16:59.:17:06.

the nature of the aircraft involved, including a Lancaster and, of

:17:06.:17:14.

course, the red arrows, some spitfires and a Hurricane, too. A

:17:14.:17:20.

real sense of modern aircraft, allied with some of the the

:17:20.:17:23.

aircraft that have played an important part in warfare in the

:17:23.:17:33.
:17:33.:17:48.

The crowd now gradually filling the Mall.

:17:48.:17:56.

People joining from all kinds of points of entry, from St James'

:17:57.:18:02.

Park, and they'll all be ready for the Queen's appearance on the

:18:02.:18:07.

balcony in a while. And that impressive fly-past. And

:18:07.:18:11.

that will be the culmination, the highpoint of the events, after the

:18:11.:18:21.
:18:21.:18:30.

service, of course, at St Paul's While we look at these images I am

:18:30.:18:34.

going to introduce my next guest but we are not going to see him but

:18:34.:18:38.

once he starts speaking you will know who it is.

:18:38.:18:42.

Why don't I ask you to say a few words for us, first. People will

:18:42.:18:46.

know exactly who it is. Well, Huw, it's a delight to be here. Sir John

:18:46.:18:50.

Major, thank you very much. We were hearing from David Cameron a while

:18:50.:18:53.

ago and good to have you with us. Thank you. First of all, the day,

:18:53.:18:56.

what did you make of today? quite extraordinary. But then it's

:18:57.:18:59.

been an extraordinary two or three days. The whole country's been in

:18:59.:19:03.

the middle of a great party. People have come out in a way that I think

:19:03.:19:07.

very few people actually imagined. I had been around a long time, I

:19:07.:19:11.

don't think I have seen anything quite like this before. Why has it

:19:11.:19:15.

happened? I think it's a culmination of things. We live in a

:19:15.:19:19.

pretty cynical world, sadly, these days and people have seen someone

:19:19.:19:23.

who for 60 years has been the best example of selfless service that I

:19:24.:19:28.

think you can possibly imagine. In some fashion that is now

:19:28.:19:31.

communicated itself to people and this opportunity has been a great

:19:31.:19:35.

opportunity to show what people think of the monarchy and this

:19:35.:19:40.

particular monarch. This is an amazing scene. It certainly is.

:19:40.:19:44.

I can't imagine hardly anyone else in the world who could draw crowds

:19:45.:19:49.

like this. Here we are looking at the mall, but I have driven from

:19:49.:19:53.

south London, it's the same way along much of the route. Huge

:19:53.:19:57.

numbers of people just crowding in the streets, holding flags from the

:19:57.:20:02.

very eldery, to Little Children barely able to toddle. It's a

:20:02.:20:09.

memorable sight. Lots of people today talking about

:20:09.:20:14.

2002 and indeed thinking back to 1977. What were you doing back in

:20:15.:20:18.

1977 for the Silver Jubilee, do you remember? I do remember, I was

:20:18.:20:21.

standing in the streets, like everybody else. I remember it very

:20:21.:20:25.

well indeed. I remember the Coronation. It was another great

:20:25.:20:29.

celebration at the time. It lifted the gloom of the post-war years in

:20:29.:20:32.

a truly remarkable fashion. have a particular interest over and

:20:32.:20:37.

above the usual interest in today's events because you are chairman of

:20:37.:20:40.

the Diamond Jubilee Trust. That's correct. What does that involve.

:20:40.:20:44.

Well, the trust has been set up at the request of all the Commonwealth

:20:44.:20:47.

Prime Ministers, and heads of Government, all 54 countries,

:20:47.:20:51.

they've set up the Trust to raise money to set up legacy projects to

:20:51.:20:55.

honour the Queen's long reign. The Queen has said please don't make

:20:55.:21:01.

presentations to me. If you wish to make a tribute, then donate your

:21:01.:21:03.

tribute to the Diamond Jubilee Trust. We are going to raise as

:21:03.:21:06.

much money as we can in this country and right across every

:21:07.:21:11.

country of the Commonwealth, from governments, local governments,

:21:11.:21:15.

individuals, people can donate via our website. When we have raised as

:21:15.:21:20.

much as we possibly can in one year only we are then going to utilise

:21:20.:21:24.

it in a relatively small number of big projects to help people in the

:21:24.:21:27.

- right across the Commonwealth. How will you decide thousand spend

:21:27.:21:32.

the money? It Will be an objective decision but the sort of thing we

:21:32.:21:36.

have in mind, not final decisions, but sort of thing, why not

:21:36.:21:39.

scholarships for the disabled? There are schemes around the world,

:21:39.:21:43.

I know of no scholarship scheme for the disabled. That would be a

:21:43.:21:47.

wonderful, permanent tribute. We are looking at how we can restore

:21:47.:21:52.

sight to to many people who are blind, their sight can be restored.

:21:52.:21:56.

We are looking at schemes in cities where people are short of nutrition

:21:56.:22:00.

and good food to set up urban gardens, even in tower blocks and

:22:00.:22:05.

flats you can set up urban gardens to grow food. That's the sort of

:22:05.:22:09.

project that we are looking at. We will be working with really great

:22:09.:22:16.

charities like the Eden Project and Sightsavers. We thought we could

:22:16.:22:20.

use sport particularly for the young, the concept of teams, rather

:22:20.:22:22.

than gangs, all across the Commonwealth that's necessary. It's

:22:22.:22:26.

a huge range of ideas. First, we have to raise the money and once we

:22:26.:22:30.

have the money, as much as we can get, I set no target, as much as we

:22:30.:22:35.

can get, then we can disperse it on schemes in honour of the Queen that

:22:35.:22:39.

will be badged, as it were, to show it's in honour of the Queen and

:22:39.:22:41.

that it will make a real difference to lives of people who have much

:22:41.:22:46.

less than most of us. Sir John, as ever, great to talk to you and

:22:46.:22:50.

thank you for coming in to talk to us. Enjoy the day. Thank you.

:22:51.:22:57.

John Major there. Chris is on the Mall, let's join him.

:22:57.:23:01.

The crowd is slowly making its way towards Buckingham Palace and

:23:01.:23:04.

they've finally arrived. Look at them.

:23:04.:23:11.

Swarms, wave after wave of happy people.

:23:11.:23:16.

Scouts, Brownies, we have seen everybody make their way to the

:23:16.:23:22.

Palace. Finally, they're here to see that all-- what they've wanted

:23:22.:23:26.

to see the balcony shot. Now they're here and all very excited.

:23:26.:23:36.
:23:36.:23:48.

And on it goes. There you can see the great build-up just at the

:23:48.:23:55.

point where the stands for the concert are in place.

:23:55.:24:00.

Very soon the order will be given for the ranks of police officers

:24:00.:24:08.

there to lead on and they will fill the area, that semicircle around

:24:08.:24:12.

the main carriage gates. That will be an impressive moment. That will

:24:12.:24:19.

be in a few minutes, because we are about, I reckon maybe 20 minutes

:24:19.:24:23.

away from the actual appearance. It could be 15 minutes.

:24:23.:24:26.

Sort of rough timings at the moment. That's the kind of timing we are

:24:26.:24:31.

talking about. St James' Park will now be seeing

:24:31.:24:36.

people drifting down towards the Palace. Let's go back there.

:24:36.:24:40.

What a moving powerful sight there on the Mall. We will be heading

:24:40.:24:45.

there ourselves in a moment. It's important to focus on the fact that

:24:45.:24:49.

actually this weekend is also the start of a really important

:24:49.:24:53.

sporting summer for this small island of ours, the Euro

:24:53.:24:57.

championships in a few days and the next time the Mall is packed with

:24:57.:25:01.

people waving flags it will probably be the culmination of the

:25:01.:25:06.

marathon or road race for the Olympic Games and two people who

:25:06.:25:12.

know all about the Olympics, Kelly Sotherton and Mark foster. For all

:25:12.:25:16.

the athletes involved in the Olympics, the next time the country

:25:16.:25:20.

feels like this they will be the focus of attention. In Olympic

:25:20.:25:23.

terms, when the torch arrived in the West Country in Cornwall the

:25:23.:25:28.

buzz sort of started and went around communities and seeing

:25:28.:25:31.

people coming out and lining the roads with the the torch going

:25:31.:25:34.

around and what you have seen here with the Jubilee, the country's

:25:34.:25:38.

getting behind, not only the Olympics, behind the Jubilee,

:25:38.:25:42.

everything, which is wonderful to see. You have carried the Olympic

:25:42.:25:49.

Flag in Beijing but you are a torch-bearer as well. On July 6th,

:25:49.:25:53.

in Southend, this is actually for my mother. I told her not to come

:25:53.:25:56.

to Beijing and the night before I got told I was going to carry the

:25:56.:26:02.

flag she rang me and went really, you told me not to come. Now I am

:26:02.:26:07.

going to carry the torch, she might be the one that runs alongside me

:26:07.:26:13.

and grabs it. Kelly, I have to say hardlines for you, because you were

:26:13.:26:16.

looking to compete in 2012 and sadly you have announced your

:26:16.:26:19.

retire tphplt the last few -- retirement in the last few days.

:26:19.:26:23.

was trying to qualify for the Olympics and a week prior I hurt my

:26:23.:26:27.

back, so I rested for a week to try to get to the competition in one

:26:27.:26:33.

piece. I did, but halfway through the 200 metres my back went. I have

:26:33.:26:39.

a slipped disc and it hit the nerve. I had to wave my dream goodbye and

:26:39.:26:42.

I had an operation that week T would have taken too long to come

:26:42.:26:45.

back and as I had the qualified score from the previous year I

:26:45.:26:49.

couldn't make the Olympics. It's heart-wrenches because I have had a

:26:50.:26:55.

terrible couple of years. I was always retiring, retiring. How will

:26:56.:27:00.

you feel watching, now you are not par taking? I really want to enjoy

:27:00.:27:04.

it, because it's not every day the Olympics are in Great Britain and

:27:04.:27:07.

it will probably never be here in my lifetime. I have tickets for

:27:07.:27:10.

various events and I will enjoy it and support the team. The BBC

:27:11.:27:15.

coverage is going to be quite good, as well. You can enjoy that. Mark,

:27:15.:27:20.

you will be working down there. Give us people to look out for,

:27:20.:27:24.

playerly -- particularly in the pool. You always find the pool is

:27:24.:27:29.

one of the places everybody loves to go. A lot of athletes in the

:27:29.:27:39.
:27:39.:27:40.

past said we have to come to the pool. Phelps will be there.

:27:40.:27:50.
:27:50.:27:52.

Franklin, some new names. England's perspective, Becky Adlington. And

:27:52.:28:02.
:28:02.:28:06.

Kerry Anne Payne. Thank you very The surge continues, as people have

:28:06.:28:10.

seen the opportunity to get up close to the Palace, close to the

:28:10.:28:15.

railing, and to have a great view of the famous balcony when the

:28:15.:28:18.

Queen and other members of the Royal Family will appear in a short

:28:18.:28:24.

while. I want to send in everyone for sending messages. We've

:28:24.:28:28.

received lots. I want to convey a few of them as we keep on with

:28:28.:28:37.

these images. All kind of people are turning up, people in

:28:37.:28:43.

pushchairs, slightly stunned but enjoying the day. Chuck in London

:28:43.:28:47.

doesn't give a surname but we thank you for the message. He sums up the

:28:47.:28:51.

messages from lots of people, saying these are amazing Jubilee

:28:51.:28:56.

celebrations. They make everyone fall in love again, he says, with

:28:56.:29:02.

the Union Jack. It shows how great and united Britain is. Mark the

:29:02.:29:07.

Leicester says he loves the sight of people piling down The Mall.

:29:07.:29:12.

This is happening right now Mark, so I hope you are happy with these

:29:12.:29:17.

images. And Jack Rosser, who doesn't say where he is, he wishes

:29:17.:29:22.

he was in London. The atmosphere, he says, looks amazing. I can tell

:29:22.:29:26.

you what, Jack, it peoples amazing as well. Our studio here at

:29:26.:29:32.

Buckingham Palace is just yards away. Now we can actually see the

:29:32.:29:42.

great surge of people moving towards the gates. All of them

:29:42.:29:46.

hoping for the best view, with cameras at the ready for when the

:29:46.:29:56.
:29:56.:30:04.

Queen appears on the Palace balcony What does that remind us of? If you

:30:04.:30:11.

were watching the concert last night, it was only one act - Grace

:30:11.:30:17.

Jones memorably performing. And yes the skies are grey now. They were

:30:17.:30:22.

blue this morning, but mercifully we are still in pretty dry weather.

:30:22.:30:29.

Let's hope it holds for another half-hour or so. Yes the umbrellas

:30:30.:30:39.
:30:40.:30:46.

are out. But it doesn't look too heavy at the moment, the rain.

:30:46.:30:55.

I'm going to introduce my next guest, a distinguished guest, Major

:30:55.:31:00.

General Sebastian Roberts. Thank you very much for coming in. Great

:31:00.:31:05.

to see you. Your thoughts on the day? It's been wonderful. I watched

:31:05.:31:09.

yesterday on television and the feeling there was transmitted

:31:09.:31:15.

brilliantly. It is tremendous to be here and to see it as it is. Having

:31:15.:31:19.

usually been the other side of the railings to see the crowd from this

:31:19.:31:23.

side, it's fantastic. I can think of no better way to watch this from

:31:23.:31:28.

here. I want you to unlock a secret for us if you will, because we are

:31:28.:31:35.

going to have what we call a feu de joie, when the Queen appears later

:31:35.:31:41.

on. You were in charge of a feu de joie which we enjoyed in 2006 after

:31:41.:31:47.

the birthday parade, but lot of people will be wondering what it is.

:31:47.:31:52.

What's the expert description? is the historic way, particularly

:31:52.:32:00.

for infantry men, to to fire a volley of shots in screns. Its

:32:01.:32:08.

origins go back -- in sequence. Its other begins go back to the 18th

:32:08.:32:12.

century. This is the only - thsh is only the second way for it to be

:32:12.:32:22.
:32:22.:32:23.

done for the Queen. It is a way for infantrymen to fire, in respect of

:32:23.:32:29.

sovereigns. It is an infantryman's celebration. Is it tricky to

:32:29.:32:36.

accomplish? It is so rarely done that it has its own trickiness. The

:32:36.:32:41.

garrison major I suspect has lost a bit of sleep about it, but no,

:32:41.:32:45.

remember the guys doing this have used the very same weapons in

:32:45.:32:52.

action in Afghanistan and Iraq. They are in the hands of experts,

:32:52.:32:56.

although they don't always fire them wearing these uniforms. After

:32:56.:33:00.

'06 what was the Queen saying to you about the feu de joie and how

:33:00.:33:09.

it turned out? I think she enjoyed it. There was an almost

:33:09.:33:15.

irresistible front page at the time, but no, it was very well taken that

:33:15.:33:18.

this was an opportunity for particularly her household troops

:33:18.:33:22.

to do something unusual but a personal act of congratulation and

:33:22.:33:27.

gratitude to her. There is lots written about this relationship and

:33:27.:33:32.

the closeness of the relationship between the monarch and her troops.

:33:32.:33:38.

Is that overstated? No. I think it's true that all her troops, that

:33:38.:33:42.

is to say the whole of her Army and armed forces, feel something very

:33:42.:33:49.

special for her The Army it is what we swear the oath of allegiance to

:33:49.:33:56.

her very person. That's what we give our livings for. I think that

:33:56.:33:59.

the Foot Guards and the Household Cavalry, the Household Division in

:33:59.:34:04.

a sense are doing this on behalf of the rest of the Army. And indeed

:34:04.:34:08.

the rest of the armed forces and everybody else. It is a personal

:34:08.:34:13.

contact which we are honoured to have. We only represent others.

:34:13.:34:19.

you are making that point we hear the strains of Rule Brit an ia

:34:19.:34:28.

outside. -- Rule Britannia outside. They are getting ready with some

:34:28.:34:34.

pretty rousing music. Let's listen and enjoy it for a

:34:34.:34:44.
:34:44.:34:44.

THE BAND PLAYS LAND OF HOPE AND CHEERING

:35:46.:35:50.

Land of Hope and Glory. They enjoyed that. The Union Jacks are

:35:50.:35:56.

out in force and the Union Jack is pretty much everywhere, on hats,

:35:56.:36:03.

items of clothing, on memorabilia and in different shapes and sizes,

:36:03.:36:09.

with tiny kiddie sizes and much bigger ones. "Thanks for the day

:36:09.:36:15.

off" indeed. Thanks for the two days off, given that it is an

:36:15.:36:19.

extended weekend. Not long now before the Queen will appear on the

:36:19.:36:24.

balcony of Buckingham Palace. Probably I reckon in about ten

:36:24.:36:29.

minutes or so before we see the curtains twitching and the doors

:36:29.:36:33.

opening and the Royal Family appearing on the balcony. The great

:36:33.:36:42.

sound of the pipes and drums. The first Battalion Irish Guards

:36:42.:36:51.

working very hard to entertain the crowd this afternoon.

:36:51.:36:54.

As people enjoy the scene outside Buckingham Palace we'll have more

:36:54.:37:00.

special guests for you in just a few minutes. Let's join Sonali. I'm

:37:00.:37:04.

with five-year-old Harry from Brighton and his family. Just look

:37:04.:37:12.

how close we are to bufplt amazing guys. Good efforts. Harry, you want

:37:12.:37:20.

to sing the national anthem live on BBC One. Go for it. God save our

:37:20.:37:25.

gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen, God save our Queen. That's

:37:25.:37:30.

amazing. Brilliant! CHEERING We've also got seven-year-old Ellie

:37:30.:37:39.

from Grimsby. What's been the best part of your day? Watching all the

:37:39.:37:43.

horses. They were brilliant. You must have loved seeing the Queen as

:37:44.:37:51.

well. Yes. Enjoy the rest of your Jubilee weekend, guys.

:37:51.:37:58.

Such an impressive scene and very soon the entire space around the

:37:58.:38:02.

Queen Victoria Memorial will be absolutely packed. The stage which

:38:02.:38:06.

was there last night has been dismantled. The canopy is still in

:38:06.:38:11.

place, which might be handy given that it is starting to spit with a

:38:11.:38:20.

little bit of rain. The entire force of people in The

:38:20.:38:26.

Mall on the move heading towards Buckingham Palace. I did promise

:38:27.:38:33.

you some special guests. So I'm going to keep my word. We have

:38:33.:38:39.

Terry Wogan and Andrew Lloyd Webber with us, and Sir Sebastian is still

:38:39.:38:43.

with us. Temporaryry, some thoughts on this extended weekends. I was

:38:44.:38:49.

privileged to be able to do the coverage for Radio 2 last night of

:38:49.:38:57.

that magnificent concert. From the moment that Robbie Williams came on

:38:57.:39:05.

with Let Me Entertain You, to the pyrotechnics of Paul McCartney at

:39:05.:39:08.

the end. If there is ever to be a better concert, I want to be here

:39:08.:39:13.

to see it. Just watching the crowd coming down from Admiralty Arch,

:39:13.:39:18.

that was the way it was last night. There must be 100,000 people.

:39:18.:39:25.

20,000 people and all the way back to the arch, as it is now. What a

:39:25.:39:30.

sight. And the crowd add enormously to it. The colour, the sounds, the

:39:30.:39:35.

performances, the artists. There'll never be another concert like it.

:39:35.:39:41.

You do agree, Andrew? I do. course he agrees, he was part of

:39:41.:39:46.

it! It was an extraordinary moment. Just before we went on air, I went

:39:46.:39:51.

out with Gareth Malone and we rehearsed the crowd singing the

:39:51.:39:56.

Jubilee song. Down The Mall it was bright sunshine that. Moment. It

:39:56.:40:02.

was extraordinary. The sun hit the houses of Parliament. It was really

:40:02.:40:06.

wonderful. I really enjoyed it. thought it a shame that you didn't

:40:06.:40:12.

come on with a hula hoop. I didn't want to upstage anybody. Of course!

:40:12.:40:17.

The music, your involvement in the music last night was particular.

:40:17.:40:24.

Tell us about it. It it was Jubilee song. Gary Barlow and I had a

:40:24.:40:27.

specific idea - to celebrate the Queen's involvement with the

:40:27.:40:31.

Commonwealth. Of all the things she would like to be remembered for, I

:40:31.:40:34.

think her devotion to the Commonwealth is probably the top

:40:34.:40:38.

one. I think we can reveal this now that it is all over that in fact we

:40:38.:40:43.

played her the song privately before the official unveiling of it,

:40:43.:40:48.

and it was great fun. We had a few of the Military Wives around the

:40:48.:40:53.

piano and Gary and I played it. She's been very generous about it

:40:53.:40:59.

and allowed us to say she is delighted with it. Very nice to be

:40:59.:41:02.

part of that. On the radio coverage we had so many messages and e-mails

:41:02.:41:06.

from all over the world, from various parts of the Commonwealth,

:41:06.:41:10.

from the East Coast of the United States, from Canada, the car been.

:41:10.:41:15.

It is wonderful to have the response from all over the world.

:41:15.:41:19.

Everybody thinking it was absolutely magnificent. A good

:41:19.:41:23.

point, Sebastian. When we were talking to members of the Household

:41:23.:41:27.

Cavalry, that was nice, as it reflected the mix and the richness

:41:27.:41:30.

and the diversity of the Commonwealth, and members of the

:41:30.:41:37.

Household Cavalry today. Indeed. 10% of the British Army are from

:41:37.:41:42.

the Commonwealth or the United Nations. It is important to speak

:41:42.:41:48.

up for the Irish Army. That diversity is one of the things we

:41:48.:41:52.

are celebrating today. And plenty of Welsh people Toon old podium

:41:52.:41:58.

weren't there - Tom, Shirley. did brilliantly. They virtually

:41:58.:42:05.

took over. Where there any Scots? I'm half Scottish. That box has

:42:05.:42:12.

been ticked. Thank heavens for that! This is building up now to

:42:12.:42:16.

what's an important moment in the military preparation for the

:42:16.:42:21.

ceremonial element. What's going on? Are people hoping for the best?

:42:21.:42:26.

I'm sure it is beyond hope but I must say, waiting to give the

:42:26.:42:32.

orders for the feu de joie myself for the Queen's 80th birthday, I

:42:32.:42:37.

was certainly going over the words of command many my mind. I knew

:42:37.:42:42.

there would be others there to take my place if I got it wrong The head

:42:42.:42:47.

of a commander it is a busy time. It is an extraordinary collection

:42:47.:42:53.

of people. I know we are looking at the backs of their heads, but it is

:42:53.:42:59.

eclectic wouldn't you say? All ages. It certainly is. A very broad mix.

:42:59.:43:05.

Half of the people we've been interviewing from been from all

:43:05.:43:08.

around the world, from Australia, the United States. It is

:43:08.:43:12.

interesting to see that some of the smaller countries of the

:43:12.:43:15.

Commonwealth are represented here. Let's see if we can join Chris once

:43:15.:43:25.

We are down by the Buckingham Palace gates just waiting for the

:43:25.:43:29.

arrival of the Royal Family. There are a few dads whose shoulders are

:43:29.:43:34.

aching. Indeed, it's been a wonderful day. It's good to have

:43:34.:43:37.

the children to see the Queen and celebrate 60 years. What's the view

:43:37.:43:41.

like up there? It's really good. Not too tiring sitting on dad's

:43:41.:43:46.

shoulders? No. It's going to be about three, four minutes. A very

:43:46.:43:51.

smart gentleman here in a red suit looking forward to it. Other dads,

:43:51.:43:57.

look at that. And a mum! Is this your little one up here? They're

:43:57.:44:03.

all. Everybody is on the shoulders. I have to find Sonali. We have

:44:03.:44:11.

about three minutes to wait but we are all getting excited.

:44:11.:44:18.

I have to say, now we can see an ocean of umbrellas. Maybe the spits

:44:18.:44:22.

of rain I talked about have rather developed.

:44:22.:44:27.

Nobody minds that. It's nothing like Sunday, Terry, let's just say

:44:27.:44:33.

that. If the sun had been shining for that, it would have been a bit

:44:33.:44:37.

too bling. The whole thing looked like an impressionist painting, the

:44:37.:44:44.

boats going up the river in the mist. It was romantic. There is a

:44:44.:44:49.

question from viewers which I must put to you all, you can all answer

:44:49.:44:53.

this question, which is, I am paraphrasing lots of different

:44:53.:44:56.

questions, what is the Queen like to meet? What kind of personality

:44:56.:45:03.

does she have? How does she respond to humour, does she engage readily

:45:03.:45:08.

in chat? Absolutely, I have been privileged to be in her company on

:45:08.:45:12.

more than one occasion. About a year ago she was foolish enough to

:45:12.:45:18.

invite me to dinner at Windsor Castle, fairly convenient from my

:45:18.:45:22.

house, that's probably why she asked. I had the preuf hrepbl of

:45:22.:45:25.

sitting -- privilege of sitting beside her. I noticed for the main

:45:25.:45:29.

course she had a small carrot, a little piece of broccoli, tiny

:45:29.:45:36.

piece of meat and gravy. I said to her, mam, you are hardly eating

:45:36.:45:44.

anything. She looked at me and she said, can't say the same for you!

:45:44.:45:49.

So that epitomises her, a wonderful sense of humour, she's easy to talk

:45:49.:45:59.
:45:59.:46:01.

to. An entirely pleasant, I hate. I went to another reception years ago

:46:01.:46:07.

in the 70s, the first time, up the great staircase with half of

:46:07.:46:17.
:46:17.:46:17.

showbiz, joined the reviewing line and she said flab. I thought what,

:46:17.:46:23.

because I used to do a thing called fat the flab on the radio and I was

:46:23.:46:28.

astonished by this, I bowed and moved quickly along and a voice

:46:28.:46:32.

said don't forget about us, I walked straight past Prince Charles

:46:32.:46:37.

and the Queen Mother. Andrew? A sense of the character of the Queen,

:46:37.:46:41.

what would you say? When we played the song to her first and at the

:46:41.:46:45.

end I said thank you very much for coming around, and all of that. I

:46:45.:46:49.

said, so you are going to have to pretend when Gary and I come around

:46:49.:46:52.

to Windsor Castle to play you the song for the television that you

:46:52.:46:59.

haven't heard it. She just said I am very good at pretending.

:46:59.:47:05.

I thought it was wonderful. Delivered with a broad smile.

:47:05.:47:09.

a great joy of sitting next to her too at Windsor and I remember her

:47:09.:47:12.

talking about a speech she was going to make to the United Nations

:47:12.:47:16.

and the thing that really, really I take from that is that it was

:47:16.:47:20.

coming from the heart and not the head. No advisor was telling her

:47:20.:47:25.

about that. It was just what she felt about tolerance and you

:47:25.:47:28.

thought here is the leader of the Church of England and saying we

:47:28.:47:31.

have to be multicultural and consider other faiths. We are

:47:31.:47:34.

minutes away from the balcony appearance.

:47:34.:47:38.

You were saying there is cover on the balcony. They're not going to

:47:38.:47:44.

get drenched. No, it's under cover. At this stage there are no wet

:47:44.:47:47.

weather programmes, they'll stay out whatever the weather does.

:47:47.:47:57.

at the way they behaved during the river cavalcade.

:47:57.:48:02.

For a lady of her age to stand for so long.

:48:02.:48:07.

The doors have opened and Her Majesty, the Queen leads members of

:48:07.:48:10.

the Royal Family on to that famous balcony at whras and -- at

:48:10.:48:20.
:48:20.:48:53.

This vast crowd here to celebrate six decades of the Queen's reign.

:48:53.:48:59.

She looks into the distance towards Admiralty Arch. The Duke of

:48:59.:49:06.

Cambridge. The Queen acknowledges the tributes

:49:06.:49:11.

and cheers of the crowd. They wait and look up to the sky

:49:11.:49:21.
:49:21.:49:33.

wondering if the fly-past is on its The Prince of Wales and the Duchess

:49:33.:49:37.

of Cornwall, the Queen, flanked by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

:49:37.:49:42.

and Prince Harry. A much smaller group on the balcony than we have

:49:42.:49:50.

seen at past events. There we are, the representation of

:49:50.:49:55.

six decades there and six decades of British history. I know it's

:49:55.:50:01.

been said before, but Prince Charles speech last night I thought

:50:01.:50:11.
:50:11.:50:38.

was first-class. The crowd here is aware that the

:50:38.:50:43.

planes are on the way and the Queen, who has an expert eye for these

:50:43.:50:46.

things, can spot them in the distance, even though it's pretty

:50:46.:50:50.

cloudy and it's not exactly great visibility.

:50:50.:51:00.
:51:00.:51:08.

But when it happens it will be a spectacular sight. 18 aircraft, led

:51:08.:51:18.
:51:18.:51:38.

Straight down the Mall. Flying low over Buckingham Palace.

:51:38.:51:48.
:51:48.:52:20.

In tribute to the Queen's Diamond The Lancaster is on the way. Four

:52:20.:52:30.
:52:30.:52:32.

Spitfires, followed by a Hurricane. Flight Lieutenant Roger Nicholls.

:52:32.:52:42.
:52:42.:52:42.

The Spitfires, squadron leader Ian Smith, wing commander, and flight

:52:42.:52:52.
:52:52.:53:14.

Lieutenant Parkinson. The and the We are now waiting for the climax,

:53:14.:53:21.

spectacular dynamic, exciting, The Red Arrows.

:53:21.:53:31.
:53:31.:53:46.

Led by Jim Turner in Red 1. The Hawk T1 Aircraft, streaming red,

:53:46.:53:51.

white and blue over Buckingham Palace.

:53:51.:53:56.

That's the fly-past. They clearly enjoyed it. The Queen

:53:57.:54:05.

certainly did. Lots of shouts of "God Save the

:54:05.:54:09.

Queen" and "more" from the crowd outside Buckingham Palace today.

:54:09.:54:15.

They wait for this special form of rifle salute which was explained to

:54:15.:54:25.
:54:25.:54:25.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:54:25.:56:35.

us a while ago, called the feu de The feu de joie has been

:56:35.:56:44.

accomplished. The orders given by Major General George Norton.

:56:44.:56:48.

He could barely be heard because of the cheers of the crowd. Now three

:56:48.:56:58.
:56:58.:57:01.

cheers for the Queen. Big smile from the Queen Elizabeth

:57:01.:57:11.
:57:11.:57:49.

II, acknowledging the tributes on Three cheers for Her Majesty the

:57:49.:57:59.
:57:59.:58:17.

Queen. Hip, hip hooray. Hip, hip, The broadest of smiles from the

:58:17.:58:21.

Queen acknowledging the heartfelt cheer there is the Irish Guards,

:58:21.:58:24.

and still enjoying the scene. Major General Sebastian Roberts looking

:58:24.:58:30.

on with pride. Your thoughts? sure they did it better than we did

:58:30.:58:35.

a few years ago. It is a very fine way to end an extraordinary

:58:35.:58:45.
:58:45.:59:09.

The Queen leads members of the Royal Family back into Buckingham

:59:09.:59:18.

Palace. And that was the view they had. It's a remarkable sight. The

:59:18.:59:24.

Mall absolutely packed with people. Terry Wogan and Andrew Lloyd Webber

:59:24.:59:30.

are still with me. Terry, that was a fitting climax. It was wonderful

:59:30.:59:35.

to see how Her Majesty responded. First of all I thought she was

:59:35.:59:41.

perhaps a little moved. And then as the planes went over and the feu de

:59:41.:59:45.

joie, she responded to that immediately didn't she. From then

:59:45.:59:51.

on it was smiles all the way. smile said it all didn't it, she

:59:51.:59:57.

was genuinely moved by that. Who couldn't be? It is so well done. I

:59:57.:00:03.

have to say, as a theatreman myself I couldn't get near that. What a

:00:03.:00:08.

compliment. That is a compliment, but it is theatre but it is theatre

:00:08.:00:12.

delivered to perfection. theatre for all of us. These guys

:00:12.:00:17.

are representing all of us in a celebration of the Queen, who is

:00:17.:00:25.

the Queen of all of us. Probably I thought the only person there who

:00:25.:00:31.

has never sung those words. Yes, how many times you do reckon she's

:00:31.:00:36.

heard that, how many Muslims? yet she's never sung it herself,

:00:36.:00:39.

which puts it into perspective. You've all been wonderful guests

:00:39.:00:46.

for us and we are really grateful to you for joining us. Terry Wogan,

:00:46.:00:49.

Major General Sebastian Roberts and Andrew Lloyd Webber. I can't think

:00:49.:00:55.

of better company. Thank you. We are now going to join Chris in The

:00:55.:01:00.

Mall. What's going on, Chris? crowds are making their way home.

:01:00.:01:07.

They've seen the Queen. They have heard the anthems and it's been

:01:07.:01:12.

brilliant. And great to see so many families and different generations,

:01:12.:01:16.

parents, grandparents, and children. We saw a couple from Australia who

:01:16.:01:20.

were at the Coronation in 1953 and they were determined to be back for

:01:20.:01:23.

the Diamond Jubilee. Celebrations are over. Everyone is going off

:01:23.:01:29.

home. I think it is time to sign off.

:01:29.:01:32.

Thank you very much Sonali and Chris.

:01:32.:01:36.

The balcony is empty once again but we can sense that inside they are

:01:36.:01:40.

probably having a good time. Maybe a little cup of tea and celebrating

:01:40.:01:46.

the end of a long and very happy day. A long and happy day hopefully

:01:46.:01:52.

too for our friends in St James's Park. We join Jake and Fearne once

:01:52.:01:56.

again. It's been a pleasure to be part of the Thanksgiving for six

:01:56.:02:01.

wonderful decades of service. I think what stands out for me is a

:02:01.:02:07.

line from the second verse of the national anthem, "On thee our hopes

:02:07.:02:12.

we fission" Definitely. People here have been having a wonderful time.

:02:12.:02:15.

Musically we had so many highlights, and the wonderful concert last

:02:16.:02:19.

night outside Buckingham Palace, to the choir inside St Paul's this

:02:19.:02:23.

morning. It's been a wonderful three days of celebration. Thank

:02:23.:02:27.

you very much from us. And thank you very much indeed and for

:02:27.:02:32.

keeping news a good mood all day. Thanks to Jake and Fearne. We have

:02:32.:02:37.

heard from Sir John Major, and David Cameron. We had more tributes

:02:37.:02:42.

at the end of this day. Your Majesty, congratulations on 60

:02:42.:02:45.

years of extraordinary service, dedication and commitment to our

:02:45.:02:49.

country. You can be immensely proud of what you and your family have

:02:50.:02:54.

achieved for us and we are immensely proud for you.

:02:54.:03:00.

Majesty the Queen has been such a constant in British life and has

:03:00.:03:05.

done such an amazing job in representing our country. Thanks

:03:05.:03:09.

for the great memories I have will, the experiences of the great horses

:03:09.:03:13.

I have ridden for you. I hope the Diamond Jubilee is the beginning of

:03:13.:03:18.

many years to come. I loo woo like to say from me, Victoria and our

:03:18.:03:22.

whole family and the whole country, congratulations Your Majesty.

:03:22.:03:29.

you for being a very important part of my life over all the years. And

:03:29.:03:38.

for for keeping a cool head in difficult times. What's going on

:03:38.:03:42.

Your Majesty? It is Diversity here. We want to say congratulations on

:03:42.:03:45.

your Diamond Jubilee and thank you so much for giving us the

:03:45.:03:49.

inspiration and the drive to reach the Royal Variety Show and to

:03:49.:03:55.

perform in front of you, as that has changed our lives. We've got a

:03:55.:03:59.

couple of tickets for the tour if you want to come down and watch.

:03:59.:04:03.

Your Majesty, I want to say thank you for all you've done for us, the

:04:03.:04:07.

British people, on a personal note I would like to say please invite

:04:07.:04:11.

me to Buckingham Palace, not just when I've done a really long swim.

:04:11.:04:16.

Invite me round for a cup of tea or something. Thank you mam for being

:04:16.:04:20.

you. And looking after us for all these

:04:20.:04:26.

years. God bless. Some rather special tributes there

:04:26.:04:35.

to end our coverage of the Diamond Jubilee of 2012.

:04:35.:04:39.

Sunday seem as very long time ago in all of that rain but it was very

:04:39.:04:43.

impressive pageants. Yesterday a terrific concert here, which we

:04:43.:04:49.

will all remember for a long time. Today, a moving service at St

:04:49.:04:53.
