If that's the case, why did Prince Philip appear in his ceremonial dress?

That's what I don't know. It's very odd.

No idea, but I don't believe it gas anything to do with the election or the events in Manchester.

I don't think The Queen is doing ceremonial dress this year due to the election.
IIRC, the election only impacts the formality of her dress at one event: the Opening of Parliament. I confess I don't really understand why the timing of the election changes what clothes she wears that day, but it's the custom for some reason.

I do hope someone will be able to decipher the difference in today's attire.

I think if it wasn't for the cut down on ceremonial dress this year, she would've worn her mantle and tiara. Especially for the centenary of the order. Perhaps it's down to her not wearing it, because Philip sure did arrive in his mantle and collar.

It turns out The Queen just decided to wear a day dress instead of the orders robe dress. Nothing to do with the election year or the Manchester bombing.

It's a good, important gesture and I like the fact that she made the visit herself instead of another member of the family!

It has to mean a lot to the victims, their families, and the health care workers who are tirelessly caring for them to have QEII herself visit. Well done!

It's not quite "just a gesture". It's quite literally her job and why she is so popular and the Monarchy with her. She couldn't *NOT* be there and to her credit she really did want to be there.

I didn't say it was "just a gesture", I've used it as a positive, impressed compliment, maybe the word has a slightly different meaning in English and in German.

I've decided to take another break from my self-imposed ban here to make a post about Her Majesty's hospital visit yesterday.

The Queen's visit was the headline story from 16:00 to 24:00 on Sky News (I recorded it), and the headline story in the main news on Norwegian TV2.

I live permanently in Norway now (and the mediahhh app didn't work yesterday), so I did not have access to BBC News Channel. But I've heard that it was covered broadly there too.

The Queen almost stopped doing engagements like this in 2013, and as some commentaators said yesterday, she diden't have to do this. She is 91 years old, and she has already released a strong statement and did the one minute silence thing.

She could have sent Charles or William, but she wanted to meet some of the victims and give her thanks to some of the nursing staff, paediatric doctors and surgeons herself (just as she did in 2005, where she also gave a speech).

The Queen is also (as I have written before) become a bit more reserved/shy during the last 4 years, so that she chose to do this shows again how kind and caring this amazing lady is.

It's also nice to see how popular Her Majesty is. Her Ipsos MORI and YouGov approval ratings are at 80-90%, and she has since 2014 been polled the most admirred person/woman in the UK (also in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany in 2016).

Almost everyone I know in the UK likes her and almost all the comments on The Royal Family, the British Monarchist League and the British Monarchist Society & Foundation facebook pages are positive.

Even many of the ignorant and evil minded thugs in the DF comment section (the best rated comments) and on twitter likes her.

And seeing her yesterday brought tears to my eyes and made me dread the unthinkable moment when she finally leave this earth even more. I simply can't imagine a world without Elizabeth II, our beloved history-making monarch with her record breaking reign.

Some of what was written yesterday:

Stupid headline, but a good article:
The Queen reveals she's an Ariana Grande fan in heartwarming chat with child victim of Manchester attack - Mirror Online
Quote:
The Queen is reported to have said that Grande is a "very good singer". She went on to add: "She sounds very, very good."

Let's not forget that Her Majesty is 91 years old and loves listening to songs from musical theatre like Showboat and Annie Get Your Gun.

A playlist of the Queen's favourite songs released last year featured music by Vera Lynn and Fred Astaire - quite different from the tunes sung by the 23-year-old pop star.

Has the Queen been singing along to 'One Last Time' around Buckingham Palace?

We highly doubt it. Who knows if she was even aware of Ariana prior to Manchester's horrific events.

But the way she took time to talk to the teens about music they like shows her to be a thoroughly caring monarch.
Queen condemns Manchester bombing as she visits survivors | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Over more than 60 years, the Queen has stepped in to provide comfort for the victims of conflict, disasters and terror attacks. From servicemen injured in the Second World War to the victims of the 7/7 bombing, the Queen has often visited hospitals in the aftermath of tragedy to show solidarity with her subjects in their hour of need.

Today was no exception as the monarch reassured the young victims and their families, and shared in their horror as they recounted their stories of how they escaped the blast alive.

Royal Norway, Thank you for posting your warm and heartfelt thoughts concerning Her Majesty. Indeed, it is very difficult to imagine a world without this amazing woman who has had a huge impact on the whole world. We are all better for having an example such as this Queen.

So many people are surprised that HM talked about the concert and music. She and her husband are the heads of a large multi-generational family and I guess she's suffered from it all.

More importantly, when she saw and was briefed she would have been told of the target audience, the age of her youngest grandchildren Vicount Severn andLady Louise, I have no doubt she checked out the sound. Unlike some, she does her homework and there is a small chance she already knew.

I'm back again (yes, I know it's ridiculous) to make another post the hospital visit:

You're very welcome! And, of course, I totally agree with the other things you wrote.

More about how HM reacted:

Manchester bombing: Queen wanted to intervene directly when she heard news | Royal | News | Express.co.uk
Quote:
THE Queen viewed the Manchester terror attack as such an affront to British values that she vowed to intervene directly as soon as she heard the news.

The 91-year-old monarch personally worded the statement condemning the “barbarity” of the attack, one of the strongest ever put out by Buckingham Palace, before visiting injured children at the earliest opportunity.

She also sanctioned a minute’s silence at a Buckingham Palace garden party on Tuesday, followed by the national anthem.

It is understood the Queen had wanted to meet those caught up in Monday night’s atrocity on Wednesday but staff delayed the visit for a day to limit disruption at the hospital.

She also requested a detailed briefing on the concert before meeting youngsters at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in order to have an understanding of Ariana Grande’s teenage fan base.

As news of the tragedy swept the royal household, it was quickly decided that the Queen would be the first member of the Royal Family to pay tribute.

Royal biographer Hugo Vickers said: “People look towards the Queen in times of crisis because she is such a calm and constant presence.”
I never trust so-called sources, but the person described by Camilla Tominey sounds like the Queen I've heard so many nice things about, so I choose to believe this.

I hope they know The Queen does not have a new hair style. It's always good to see her out on engagements.

While reading the caption and before scrolling down to actually see the announced "new hairstyle", I was pretty sceptical and thankfully they exaggerated..as usual


Meanwhile the Duke of Edinburgh as Patron of London Youth held an afternoon reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the London Youth charity's 130th anniversary:

I was back to post somthing in the Norwegian 80th birthday thread, so I desided to make a post her too.

The Queen looks to be in great spirit (as usual) and looks amazingly well for 91. And even though she does not go on walkabouts anymore, many people were again out to see her.

My favourite pictures:

She's so cute:
