I think Prince Philip has nieces and nephews who live in Germany. Does anyone know if they will visit with them?

The Queen paid her respects to the victims of war and dictatorship at Berlin's Neue Wache Memorial today, as her fourth state visit to Germany got underway in earnest.

Watched by the Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty stood silently in contemplation for several moments before laying a wreath made up of blue, red and white flowers which carried the simple message: 'In Memory'.

The visit to the memorial came after an official welcome from Germany's President Joachim Gauck on the steps of the Schloss Bellevue followed by a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel the Chancellery in central Berlin.

Seems like the Girls tiara for the Banquet tonight along with a dress which Her Majesty has worn first in Australia in 2006 and then in the United States in 2007 for the Banquet with President Bush.

I'm also glad to see how HM recognizes the hard work of her cousins, the Duke of Kent and the Duke of Gloucester, on behalf of the royal house , thus dismissing the nonsense about a "slimmed down" monarchy, allegedly favored by the PoW.

The Queen is amazing, and she looks great.

Her Majesty is wearing the necklace and one of the brooches of the Crown Rubies. Left to the Crown by Queen Victoria, the late Queen Mother wore them until the end of her life.

I believe the Queen is wearing the red Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany star and sash. I agree those rubies are magnificent and both the Queen and Duke look in top form.

Those rubies! My jaw did this! I've seen pretty gems in my life, but I think that takes the cake! So gorgeous! Where's the drooling smile! That and the jealous smile. Wish I could try them on! I'll be first in line if she let us! I'll settle for just trying the brooch on! Really tonight I'm jealous. Wish I was the Queen. Can you imagine if she wore those jewels on a trip to the supermarket? Wouldn't that be fabulous?
If that's not the Queen folks, I don't know what is!

Those are the finest Burmese rubies, I believe. Yes, open the vaults and let us in for the day! The rubies, opals, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds and pearls! It would be heaven to see them all.

Tiaras though are supposedly extremely uncomfortable to wear, leading to headaches if they are worn for hours. After the State Banquet I bet the Queen was very happy to take off the tiara and rubies and retire to bed.

Am I right, and Federal President Gauck wore the Order of the Bath?

I can't see any sash on President Gauck at the State Banquet. Am I going blind?
I do think that the Queen has made a point of awarding honorary Knights Commander of The Order of the Bath to several foreign Presidents on State occasions but I can't find any reference to her doing so on this occasion. She may have, it just hasn't been reported yet, AFAIK.
