Diamond Jubilee: Royal watchers flying the HELLO! flag for Thames River Pageant

The Thames River Pageant was blessed with true British weather - cloudy skies and rain - but that didn't stop well-wishers from showing their support for the Queen.

Tens of thousands took to the riverside to watch Elizabeth II and her family sail past during jewel in crown of the Diamond Jubilee weekend.

In true British spirit many defied the downpour to cheer on Her Majesty - with a little help from HELLO!.

Special Jubilee flags had been given to spectators HELLO! to wave as the flotilla passed by.
