Lots of pictures of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on the Royal Barge, from Tim’s view from Albert Bridge!
While everyone was celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee on Monday, our CEO Tim Leech had a particular reason to be excited – he’d been invited to stand on Albert Bridge to watch the royals parade by boat across the Thames! WaveLength is a UK-wide charity, so we were excited to take part in a celebration which is hoped to boost community spirit and engagement.
From Albert Bridge Tim had a great view of the Royal Barge, and got some great shots of the Queen, Prince Charles, Princes William and Harry and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, waving to the crowd and having fun on the red-and-gold Royal Barge. For more photos of the royals and the assembled barges at London’s Jubilee celebrations, see WaveLength’s Pinterest account.
The Jubilee was a great chance for people up and down the UK to get involved in community events, and WaveLength has uploaded some more local Jubilee pictures on Pinterest as well.
Although Tim got a first-hand view of the celebrations, the vast majority of Brits enjoyed Jubilee coverage on their TVs and radios. We hope that isolated people were able to enjoy the Jubilee either by taking part in community events, or by watching the celebrations on TV in the company of others.
