0

Bake Off presenter Prue Leith’s vintage Jaguar broke down and had to be pushed by four stewards before being quietly removed from the Pageant.

The sleek car was part of the ‘Ladies in their Jags’ section, but for Dame Prue, 82, who had cut her holiday short to join the procession, it was sadly the end of the road.

It was part of the second act, The Time of Our Lives, which traverses seven decades of culture, music and fashion within the four-part pageant.

True to their combative nature on screen, the Daleks threatened other performers and journalists gathered at Horse Guards Parade with “extermination.”

‘Surrender now, you are exterminated! Don’t threaten the Daleks!’ shouted one of the thugs as he charged toward screaming onlookers.

One of the operators, Simon James, 48, said he didn’t mind spending many hours in the suit.

“I’ve got a nice comfy chair, so I’m going to get the best seat in the house,” he said.

In his mechanical Dalek voice, the Birmingham driver added: ‘I am very excited to be part of the Platinum Jubilee. The Queen has done this country a great service and we are here to respect the Sovereign.”

Gaynor Cowley, 58, said she accompanied the Daleks as a nanny.

“They need to have someone with them so they don’t run over or bump into anything or go over potholes. I also help him get in and out of the Dalek,” she said, adding that they were members of Project Dalek, who built and advised Daleks.

The gravelly parade ground at St James’s Park was filled with vintage cars and motorcycles, floats and performers preparing for the 3km Carnival procession on a gray and cool Sunday morning.

Bus conservation enthusiasts Richard Dixon, 63, and Ivan Fisher, 42, who will be the 1950s bus conductor and the 2000s bus driver respectively, said they were more excited to participate in the event itself than to meet celebrities.

As the decades flashed through 1940s revelers, clothes danced the Lambeth Walk and further up The Mall, jiving performers represented the 1950s.

Alternately were iconic vehicles from Morris Minors, rockers on classic motorcycles and Mods on scooters, while national treasures – celebrities of the past few years including Katherine Jenkins, Bonnie Langford, Alan Titchmarsh, Basil Brush, Kate Garraway and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea and fashion king Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell – traveled by bus.

Sir Cliff Richard sang from the 1950s bus, former boxer Chris Eubank posed from the open top deck of another, and TV presenter Johnny Ball joked on the BBC about the 1970s bus experience: ‘It’s OK, but I’m worried I haven’t paid for my ride’.

A peloton of 300 cyclists passed through The Mall led by Sir Chris Hoy and golden cycling couple Dame Laura and Sir Jason Kenny.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their children George, Charlotte and Louis, Princess Anne, and Zara and Mike Tindall are all seated in the royal box alongside Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie, Keir Starmer and Sadiq Khan to watch the two-mile procession through central London.

The queen was missing from the royal box, but revelers are still hoping she will make an appearance on the balcony for the carnival finale.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who set aside family tensions to visit the UK together for the first time since bitterly resigning their royal duties, were also absent for a second day in a row for the festivities.

It is unknown if the 96-year-old monarch will make an appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after she withdrew from two Jubilee events over health concerns.

However, Charles, Camilla, William and Kate and other members of the royal family are expected to make their way to the world famous balcony at the end of the 2½ hour procession.
