The Sun reports:
They are huge gay icons and with their very first feature film about to hit the big screen, who better to lead this year’s London Pride than Patsy and Eddy!Actresses Jennifer Saunders and Joanne Lumley arrived in character as PR guru Edina Monsoon and fashion magazine director Patsy Stone to opening the parade. The ladies cut the big red ribbon to officially kick off proceedings and then joined the Absolutely Fabulous float and had a boogie with dancers dressed up as their characters. They then stopped and posed for a photo call to promote the upcoming movie before leading this year’s Pride parade through London.
