Saw it in the embankment at putney. Really enjoyed it as not too crowded so could wander down earlier and see lots going on- then wander home for a cup of tea to warm up, wander down again etc etc. saw LOADS of boats- barges, gin palaces, life boats, fire engine boats, steamers, rowers, gondolas. Went on for hours
I thought the Queen coped very well standing for so long in the appalling weather. The pageant was a good idea in theory but did not prove to be the great spectacle that was the subject of all the hype in the media. I felt a little sorry for the Duke and Kate who both looked as though they were freezing.
