I think The Queen is genuinely emotional right now.

Do you think she'll get the same amount of scrutiny that one of the York Princesses did when doing the same the horse show?

No as it was debatable whether Beatrice was taking pictures, whereas it's quite clear when Marie is doing.

The high heels on the royal ladies walking about, DOC, Sophie, Bea, etc just dont seem right to meon this ocassion. Possible P Anne has lower shoes for the walkabout? Her outfit seems right to me for once!

Unfortunately Prince Henry broached the subject of Brexit with a dairy farmer and remarked that he wasn't allowed to comment on the topic.

From the Queen's speech:

Quote:
I much appreciate the kindness of all your birthday wishes and I’ve been delighted and moved by the many cards and messages I have received. How I will feel if people are still singing Happy Birthday in December remains to be seen.
Loved it!

She's truly loved and respected by everyone. Young, old -for monarchy or against- comes out to celebrate her life. Whenever she make her transition, she will be terribly missed by all.

I teared up during her speech, and I haven't enough words to describe this amazing lady.

I agree. Talking about the Queen having the DNA of English Kings and Queens before the millennium and therefore know how to handle situations. We all have the DNA of English Kings, dear BBC. We all. You and me. The Norman William the Conqueror himself was an 11th generation descendant of the German Charlemagne, we can say that almost the whole of native Europe has a royal ancestor somewhere. For once I was mistaken for having zapped to the Teletubbies instead of the BBC.

We are fortunate to have our matchless Queen to look up to and celebrate. And as they said on Sky News, now I look forward to the Platinum Jubilee.

Seems a bit clumsy to bring up on a walkabout :P But oh well.

I wonder why only Charles and Camilla chose to attend an event elsewhere? It sounds as though their picnic meal (egg salad and cress sandwiches) was rather less yummy than the one being served in London.

Charles and Camilla chose to underline the community aspect of the event outside London, as such they organised their very own picnic for their community around Highgrove. Plus it was a nice opportunity to let the young generation take centre stage in London.

I have a simple (some might say dumb) question. What do you call that blue that was used all over at the Patron's Lunch? Here in the US, I have always known it as Tiffany Blue but have no idea if that's simply an Americanism. Lovely shade though.
