Across Britain, final preparations are being made for the historic four days of celebrations marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. This morning a full dress rehearsal took place for the procession between Westminster Hall and Buckingham Palace.

And around the country, Diamond Jubilee parties are being planned with six million people expected to attend.

The public will get several chances to see The Queen during the celebrations.

On Sunday, it's the River Pageant on the Thames.

On Monday, it's the concert at Buckingham Palace.

And then, on Tuesday it's the procession along The Mall.
