A Henry VIII lookalike was carried through the centre of London on a rowing boat on Saturday morning as part of a Tudor River Pageant to mark the 500th anniversary of the king's coronation.
Actors representing Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon boarded the royal shallop 'Jubilant' at the Tower of London to travel to Hampton Court Palace.
The journey upstream took them past the scene of Henry VIII's actual coronation and banquet at Westminster.
The flotilla left the Tower of London at 10.30am and was due to reach Hampton Court just before 3pm.
The event was organised by Historic Royal Palaces and Thames Alive. HRP is holding a series of special events at both the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace to mark the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's accession.
The Thames River Pageant also forms part of the Mayor of London's Story of London season.
