It looks spectacular!
"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

Sadly it is only temporary.  It will be done up in this style for the Jubilee and then after the pagent, it will be returned to it's previous style and purpose of a luxury river tour vessel.  Perhaps when Charles becomes king they could reassemble it and revive the old tradition of the new monarch traveling down the river on the royal barge to the tower on the eve of his coronation?  That would be splendid.
