http://www.vidjin.com/ LONDON,Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Thanksgiving Service and Carriage Procession - 5th June 2012.14:26 "The crowd jumps in shock as the first round of the Royal Horse Artillery's gun salute echoes across Horseguards which the band of the Foot Guards plays the theme to 'Rocky' on The Mall", writes the Telegraph's Thomas Harding. And then "a great roar and cheer ripples through the crowd as the Queen goes past in her horse drawn carriage as the 60 gun salute crashes in the background".
14:24 BBC says the Queen pooh-poohed the idea of the Australian state coach which has heating and electric windows.

13:48 As the Queen's lunch with 700 guests draws to a close, last minute preparations are being made at the Palace. James Kirkup, the Telegraph's Deputy Political Editor, tweets this lovely photo:
