Britain's Prince Charles paid Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London a visit. It's here where the Royal Jubilee Bells are cast. The prince of Wales examined the eight bells each named after a senior member of the royal family. On celebration day they'll have an important task - as each will go up on a floating bell tower that will lead the 1,000-ship-strong Diamond Jubilee flotilla along the river Thames. The plan is, as the Jubilee bells ring out from their floating platform, churches along the route and across the country will answer with peals of their own. And for the occasion each royal bell will have its own royal ringer. But the Charles bell of course had its first ring by a real royal. And it's as clear as a bell. Elly Park, Reuters.
