Rehearsals have started for one of the biggest royal parties the country's ever seen - the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Hundreds of soldiers rode on horseback through the deserted streets of London early this morning in a full run-through of the Jubilee procession.

Troops have also been practising outside Buckingham Palace.

Four days of events marking Her Majesty's 60 years on the throne kick off on Saturday.
