CNN announced its coverage plans for the Diamond Jubilee weekend, marking Queen Elizabeth II's 60-year reign of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. CNN's special live coverage will be anchored by Piers Morgan and Brooke Baldwin, across CNN/US and CNN International.
Additionally, CNN International will feature live programming from location with Becky Anderson, Richard Quest, Zain Verjee and CNN's Royal correspondent, Max Foster.
CNN's live simulcast coverage begins on Sunday, 3 June from 5- 7pm CET on location at the Tower Bridge for the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. Hundreds of boats will sail up the River Thames, making it one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river.
On Tuesday, 5 June from 3-5pm CET, CNN will broadcast the Royal Carriage Procession. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry of Wales will depart the Palace of Westminster for Buckingham Palace, travelling along a processional route by horse-drawn carriage. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and members of the Royal Family will appear on Buckingham Palace's balcony, at which point the Royal Air Force will fly over the palace and the Queen's Royal Guard will deliver a celebratory cascade of rifle fire as a salute.
