MORE PHOTOS FROM THE DIAMOND JUBILEE PAGEANT ON THE RIVER THAMES; PRINCE PHILIP IS HOSPITALIZED

Here are more photos from the Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames which took place on June 3, 2012.  Buckingham Palace has also confirmed that Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, has been hospitalized in King Edward VII Hospital in London due to a bladder infection and as a consequence will be unable to attend the rest of the official jubilee celebrations, including a concert outside Buckingham Palace on June 4th and the Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral on June 5th.  The prince’s hospitalization has cast a shadow on the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for the queen.  His hospitalization comes as something of a surprise as the prince, who turns 91 in a few days’ time, had looked remarkably fit at the river pageant, standing for the most of the 2 hour spectacle, despite it being a cold and blustery day.   Photos by Getty Images and Bauer Griffin.
