The Queen speaks at the UN, goes to Ground Zero, then to Hannover Square and then to JFK - at least that's how I understand it. I will try to head down to Ground Zero. I think that's the best place to catch a glimpse of her. Hannover Square is rather small and at the UN her car will drive into a secure enclosure. Any other New Yorkers thinking along these lines or have a better idea? Of course, it's hot as hades here today. I may cop out and watch it on tv.

I'm in NYC, I think Ground Zero is your best shot at getting anywhere near the Queen. I'm staying in the air conditioning and will hope to see it on TV later today.

Yes. The a/c sounds like a winner. I wonder what time she'll be at Ground Zero?

Can't wait to see your pictures and hear all about it bweir.

I so wish I could have bopped down to Toronto for the visit, but I'm still paying off my annual Spring visit for Stars on Ice at the ACC, so it just wasn't a doable thing for me. Hope she's back somewhere in Ontario for that promised Diamond Jubliee visit and it's somewhere I can get to!!

That's why I ducked out... my family was like "it's too hot in New York." Oh well. I watched the speech on tv, on CNN. I'm always amazed when I see her talk. I don't know what it is about her, she just has this charisma, plus she and my grandmother always looked like twins -- so it reminds me of my grandmother when I see her. I loved her speech. It was truly inspiring. Long live the Queen!

Queen Elizabeth addresses the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) in
New York City, USA, 06 July 2010. As head of state of the United Kingdom and
15 other UN members, Queen Elizabeth last addressed the UN General Assembly
in 1957, calling for world peace and human rights.

Queen wears 'recycled' dress to banquet in Toronto

". . . As a tribute to Canada - one of the Queen's realms - the crystals formed maple leafs both large and small running up the dress's right sleeve and shoulder. Queen wears 'recycled' dress to banquet in Toronto - Telegraph"

maybe this is why she didn't wear her canadian orders, as mentioned in an earlier post.

CNN recording of QEII's speech with article: Queen Elizabeth II makes first U.N. speech since 1957 - CNN.com. It's not the full speech, however (only about 2 out of 7 minutes).

BBC has an article as well as a video of her speech in full: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk/10518044.stm

Question, who is the lady who was sitting next to the Prince during the Queen's speech? I saw her walking behind the Queen when she opened Parliament. Is this her lady-in-waiting?

Do you happen to have a photo showing the boy (Canada Cap) and girl (teal dress) among the children presenting flowers to Her Majesty at St. James? They're my neice and nephew and I don't have a photo!

Thank you

I saw the Queen on TV wearing the 3-D glasses. She looked really good in them.
