The Royal Barge

On Monday I was fortunate to see Gloriana – a Royal Barge that led the Diamond Jubilee pageant on the Thames the day before. I saw it at London Bridge, the barge passed under it towards HMS Belfast and turned back again. Although it’s a rowing boat, it does have an engine as no one was rowing it on Monday. The barge is really beautiful, I can only imagine how it was like to watch the entire Jubilee pageant on the Thames.

Below are pictures of the Barge and a few other boats that took part in the event.
