Thousands of people lined the streets of Windsor today to watch the tri-service parade and muster held in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

About 2,500 troops marched through the town's streets before mustering inside the grounds of Windsor Castle from 10.30am.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also waved to well wishers as they were driven along the parade route.

The spectacle was the first major national event to mark the jubilee.

It finished with a tri-service 78 aircraft fly-past with Hawks flying in a 'EIIR' formation as well as Tucanos forming a '60'.

For a full round-up of the day and pictures see Friday's Windsor Express.
