Royal Family Drink Malvern Holywell Water at Queen's Jubilee Pageant onboard Havengore

The £10.5 million Jubilee pageant saw a flotilla of 1,000 boats and more than 20,000 participants take to the water in the largest celebration to be staged on the Thames for more than 300 years.

On board the Havegore was 52-year-old father Prince Andrew. He took the opportunity to wave to thousands of spectators lining the riverbanks. He was joined by Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

Other guests on the Havegore included The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Boris Johnson and former British Prime Minister John Major.

Magic Whiteboard was proud to provide the Malvern Holywell Spring Water for the 4 hour Jubilee Pageant down the Thames. The water was chosen because Malvern Water is a favourite of the the Royal Family. We have been informed that more people on the Havengore drank Malvern Holywell Water than any other drink during the floatila down the Thames.

Stretching more than seven miles, the cavalcade – which included a remarkable floating belfry and several orchestras and choirs, is en route down the Thames from Battersea to Tower Bridge, with an estimated worldwide audience of a billion, despite the weather.

The historic boat, the Havengore, was used to transport Sir Winston Churchill's body along the Thames on the day of his state funeral in 1965.
