Thousands of people turned out to witness the Diamond Jubilee Pageant - the biggest spectacle on the river Thames for more than 300 years.
At London's Battersea Park, hundreds of people queued in the rain for a prime spot to watch the 1,000-boat flotilla.
Lorna Gordon joined some of the spectators at the park who were trying to catch a glimpse of the Queen and planning their Jubilee holiday.
