The Middleton family traveled down the River Thames on the Elizabethan Sunday, riding behind the Queen as a part of the royal squadron during the Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
Carole and Michael Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents, and her siblings, James and Pippa Middleton, all partook in the festivities to celebrate the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.
The Middleton family’s invitation by the Queen to take part in the big day caught many by surprise; it suggests recognition by the Queen of the Duchess of Cambridge’s important role within the royal family.
