Thanks for the pictures, iceflower!

The Queen examines a bomb disposal robot and meets police dogs

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh examine a bomb disposal robot at the opening of the Met Police's new headquarters in London.

The opening of the new multimillion-pound headquarters at New Scotland Yard was due to take place on March 23rd but was postponed following the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack.

The royal couple also watched a demonstration of a bomb disposal robot and later met officers demonstrating "A day in the life of the Met", featuring search dogs and uniformed staff.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick and Deputy Commissioner Craig Mackey greeted the royal couple when they arrived at the building which was refurbished and extended for its new role:

Queen given tour of Canada House to mark country's 150th birthday
Quote:
The Queen has been given a sapphire brooch from the Canadian people to mark her sapphire jubilee during an event in London celebrating 150 years of the Canadian Confederation.

She and the Duke of Edinburgh were at Canada House in Trafalgar Square in honour of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, when Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia first united in 1867.

The Queen wore a Stewart Parvin white silk floral dress with a blue flower print, a white summer jacket, and matching hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan. She also wore a platinum maple leaf brooch for the occasion.

Video from CTV News - Daniele Hamamdjian discusses the Queen's visit to Canada House and recaps her interview with outgoing Gov. Gen. Johnston. Daniele Hamamdjian isn't the best reporter to report royal news, and I've noticed several errors in what she has said during the past year:

The Royal Standard has been lowered at Buckingham Palace after her Majesty the Queen begins her annual Scottish holiday at Balmoral.

The monarch was spotted today making her way to Crathie Church for Sunday service, within spitting distance of her Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside.

The 91-year-old royal could be seen travelling to the chapel alongside a female companion this morning.

The Queen usually starts her Scottish holiday in August, but has gone at least a week erlier than usual this year. I wonder why? Or has she done that before.

Balmoral will remain open to the public until July 31st so it is expected she will stay at nearby Craigown Lodge until then. She has stayed there before I believe.

Philip didn't attend the Sunday service, did he travel with the Queen to Sctland or is he arriving later?

It's the end of July that she starts. You know when she is gone because BP is open to the public now. Remember when she remarked that she wished the baby aka George would come soon because she was going on holiday. Philip does his own thing He could have gone to Sandringham to check on things there. Next week is Cowes Week so he may go there. Eventually he will make it up to Balmoral.

The Queen used to stay in London until after the 4th August for her mother's birthday but since she died she has been going to Balmoral in the last week in July rather than during the first week in August. She will return to London in either the last week in September or the first in October by which time Philip will have retired.

Ah, thank you. I do remember early August being mentioned before.

Probably explains also hearing of her staying at Craigowan Lodge on occasion and possibly that Philip waits until Balmoral itself is available

BBC/Sky News Channels are likely to have live coverage from the event, and there will of course be videos, articles and pictures about it.

Thanks iceflower! I've already posted many articles/videos of it in the retirement thread, because I thought that was the best place to put it.
