Katherine Kent was probably not at the service as she still had a cold.

In the pictures, I thought they were all amused by a comment, look at Andrew and Beatrices' faces. A typical family scene - from HM a tolerant bemused look. How wonderful.

I know Prince Ludwig is the son of Theodora and Berthold (late sister & brother-in law of DOE). Princess Ludwig is his wife, and I don't know "who" she is besides that. Ludwig himself was born in 1937, third child of Theodora and Berthold, the late Margrave and Margravine.

Jo of Palatine, I think Camilla continued to look sheepish because she couldn't stop smiling. The Queen doesn't look happy. Whatever was amusing Camilla and William must have been really naughty. Charles seems to have been playing as though he was temporarily deaf.

It was probably a joke the queen told, there is nothing better than to make everybody laugh and then feign innocence.

CasiraghiTrio, I think it is a case of we see what we want to see.

behind the Badens is also Fürst Philipp zu Hohenlohe-Langeburg, grandson of Philip's sister Margarita .

It´s only his expression when he´s very touched. He shows that this service was a moving event for him. So i think it does not mean that he was in a bad mood.

Iceflower, those pics are gorgeous. Especially Pic 3.

The Queen truly embodies that saying, something like "you're only as old as you feel." She looks like a little girl in her favorite candy store in these pics.

Just tossing in a guess, but King Haakon of Norway--guess he was a witness (and distant relative to both bride and groom?)

King Haakon was the King of Norway at that time and grandmother to the present King Harald. I don't know how he was related to the Queen or Prince Philip.

King Haakon of Norway was related both to Elizabeth and Philip. He was Elizabeth's great-uncle ( Haakon's wife Maud was sister of George V) He was first cousin once removed to Philip. ( Philip's grandfather King George I of Greece and Haakon's father King Frederik VIII of Denmark were brothers)

Thumbs up

What a Wonderful Celebration of this momentous anniversary.
Heartiest Congratulations to Her Majesty and His Royal Highness.

The Star of the Show, HM The Queen looked impeccable throughout.
All her outfits were tops. Vogue was spot-on. From her outfit at the Broadlands honeymoon site re-visit, to the beautiful flowing gown at the special family dinner, the exquisite white ensemble at the anniversary church service and the pretty pink Malta outfit - what can I say?

Her immediate family and the whole Royal Clan did not disappoint either.
At the anniversary church service, her granddaughters, TRH the Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie of York and Zara Phillips looked chic - dressed appropriately and looking thoroughly modern. HRH The Princess Royal looked every inch a proud daughter.

The Royal ladies dressed in celebratory and festive styles and colours. Though I wish that TRH the Princess Alexandra, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex had chosen more 'colour' but they made up for it by their expressive hats.

HRH the Duchess of Gloucester and Lady Nicholas Windsor both looked sweet and wore pretty outfits. Lady Rose Windsor was nice and proper.

Lady Ella Windsor was her usual elegant self as was the Viscountess Linley and Autumn Kelly. Lady Helen Taylor was elegant too but me feels she looks a trifle too 'casual' for such a royal occassion.

All in all, the Royals put on a fine show in honour of the most famous Royal couple in the world and we the people have been blessed.
