Carriage fit for the Queen: landau readied for diamond jubilee procession
Some serious spit and polish is already being applied at the royal mews in preparation for a ceremonial grand finale to the diamond jubilee bank holiday weekend.
After her aquatic adventure on a barge in Sunday's 1,000-vessel flotilla, the Queen will be back on terra firma – and on far more familiar territory with horses and carriages – for the jubilee procession through central London on Tuesday 5 June.
"We're always at a high level of readiness so it's just those final touches and flourishes we have to do," said Jack Hargreaves, head coachman, as he continued the preparations.
