1,000 boats to gather for queen’s 7-mile jubilee flotilla

LONDON — Palace officials Wednesday announced details of a massive pageant on London's River Thames to mark Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee year.

Plans call for roughly 1,000 boats of various sizes to gather June 3 for an unprecedented tribute to the queen, who is marking the 60th year of her reign.

The flotilla will be over seven miles (11 kilometers) long and include barges on which original works composed for the jubilee will be performed. The event is planned to celebrate Britain's fabled maritime history.

The queen, her husband Prince Philip and other senior royals — likely including Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton — will travel on board a royal barge, The Spirit of Chartwell, an opulent cruising vessel that regularly plies the Thames.
