  Spectacular parade ends Jubilee weekend
Updated 05 June 2002, 06.46
The Golden Jubilee parade
Thousands of performers took part in a colourful parade to finish off the Queen's Golden Jubilee weekend.

Children from the Chicken Shed Theatre and Youth group joined in the celebrations. Their set included 12 children, some as young as nine, singing solo songs to the Queen and her family.

Other performers were 2,500 members of the Notting Hill Carnival, a gospel choir and a group of Hell's Angels.

'Overwhelmed'

It's thought up to one million people have lined the streets of central London to watch the extravaganza.

Princes William and Harry, along with their dad Prince Charles, were the first royals who got up to meet the crowds when the parade started.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Queen thanked everyone who had turned out to celebrate her Golden Jubilee, which marks 50 years on the throne.

She said she was "overwhelmed" by the public's reaction to her special day.
