Diamond Jubilee: Buckingham Palace Announces Jubilee Procession Route Through London

Buckingham Palace has announced the route that the Royal Family Procession will take on Tuesday June 5th. It will differ from the route that they took last year during the Royal Wedding.

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales will travel by carriages following a Diamond Jubilee lunch at Westminster Hall, to be given for The Queen by the Livery.

The three carriages will leave New Palace Yard and process up Whitehall, to Trafalgar Square, through Admiralty Arch and down the Mall, through the Centre Gates at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen and Prince Philip will be using the 1902 State Landau in this procession.

Here is a video detailing the procession route:

The Palace also announced that members of the public will be able to apply for tickets to have a front row seat at Buckingham Palace. 10,000 members of the public will get the opportunity to enjoy the day’s events free of charge from seats in place around the Queen Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace. Further information can be found at www.jubilee5june.co.uk. Unfortunately, this is only open to UK residents.

    I really appreciate that the Queen and her family decided to celebrate her jubilee not only in London but to travel around the whole of Britain and the Commonwealth countries as well. What is great is that not a single day goes by without a new revelation of something that will contribute to the celebrations and the number of commemorative items that are made practically on a daily basis is unbelievable. As a Canadian I can say that the bond between Canada and Queen Elizabeth has always been very strong and the jubilee is a great opportunity to celebrate her life as well as the values that we and the British have in common.
