This takes place on the stretch of the Thames between Sunbury & Pangbourne. When the Swan Upping Company, which includes the Vintners markers in green livery and the Dyers in blue, reach Windsor Castle the Queen is saluted by the cry ‘Her Majesty the Queen, Seigneur of Swans’. The work, which lasts from Monday to Thursday, concludes with a banquet at which roast cygnet is served.
