Today concluded the Diamond Jubilee festivities honoring Elizabeth II’s 60 year reign as the Queen of England, culminating four days of equestrian pageantry with a morning service at St. Paul’s Cathedral and a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace.
Along with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Queen rode in the historic State Landau pulled by her team of Windsor Greys, while William, Kate, and Harry were drawn by the Queen’s Cleveland Bays and a legion of mounted police officers guided the procession and patrolled the mall.
The Royal Mews and mounted police have been awfully busy this last week and we daresay the horses, riders, and drivers alike are probably all looking forward to a well-deserved break!
Still, in these modern times, there aren’t many occasions that can produce the anachronistic awe of a Royal equestrian procession. Enjoy the Telegraph’s slideshow of the procession and all the coverage here.
Special thanks to our good friend, first mentor, and glamorous American expat living in London, Gretchen Beyer, for these images from today’s procession.
