Many carried British flags or cut outs of the Queen’s face to wear as masks while living it up to mark the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.
The 96-year-old is the first British royal to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
And the May Bank Holiday Weekend – which usually falls at the end of the month – was moved to June 2 to fit in all the fun.
Over 1,500 soldiers and officers, as well as 250 Household Division horses will put on the display.
The colour will be trooped by the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards.
On Wednesday the Queen called on the nation to create “happy memories” as she kicks off her Platinum Jubilee party.
In a stirring message, the beloved monarch says she is still “inspired by the goodwill shown to me”.
Here is everything you need to know about the celebrations.
