The Queen will lead a flotilla of up to 1,000 boats from across the UK, Commonwealth and around the world, featuring representatives from the armed forces, fire, police and rescue services, as well as passenger boats.
Organisers are planning for well over one million people to join in the celebrations.
The event is expected to be a ‘piece of theatre on water’ and will integrate music, fireworks and special effects.
