A spectacular Red Arrows show took place despite the rainy skies. Spitfires flew overhead while a million Britons sang Land of Hope and Glory and the national anthem. The crowd wasted no chance in coming to the Mall, despite the frowning weather, to cheer on the monarch at the end of a memorable bank holiday.
With the Queen were Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry. Only Prince Philip was missing as he remained sick in hospital at the height of the celebrations.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron led salutes to Queen Elizabeth, declaring that the Diamond Jubilee “above politics.”
