Very good speech. I saw The Queen for the first time in 2002 when she was riding in the gold state coach, since then i have been in awe of that lady. I was 14 at the time.

I´m very much surprised that the Queen wears her french order although this is just a black, and not a white tie banquet?!

She did the same in 1992 for President Mitterrand and it was a black tie dinner (white tie banquet in France stopped at the end of the 1970's). Anyway as the Duke himself is wearing a black tie with decorations, we have some kind of mix tonight.

If the Queen and the Duke needed some rest in Normandie, the French State furnished especially two rooms for their private use at the Chateau de Benouville.

Her majesty is wearing a pale pink suit.
She is will be welcomed later on in the marché aux fleurs(flowers and birds market) by Mr Hollande.The market will be named after her.
She visted this market during her first official visit in France.Back then she was pregnant with Prince Charles and she loved that place.

The Queen and the Duke are now speaking the members of the British association "help for heroes" and Sir Bradley Wiggings
Then they will meet children from Paris schools

I agree, Nico. I must say that President Hollande really went above and beyond for HM and the DoE, his efforts to ensure their comfort were, I'm sure, deeply appreciated by all concerned.

Lee Radziwill lives in Paris and is a much loved figure of the Parisian Society.
