I'm also hoping the Irish weather behaves.

It is a minority of people who want to do harm I know, but I understand if people in general may still have reservations.

Still, couldn't have imagined this happening 15 years ago!

I feel a bit funny actually. This seem small but it is actually quite historic and a big deal for Anglo-Irish relations, going back, like hundreds of years.

DUBLIN, IRELAND - MAY 17: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh step off the Royal Flight as they arrive at Baldonnel Airport on May 17, 2011 in Dublin, Ireland. The Duke and Queen's visit is the first by a monarch since 1911. An unprecedented security operation is taking place with much of the centre of Dublin turning into a car free zone. Republican dissident groups have made it clear they are intent on disrupting proceedings.

It's a very historic day and I have enjoyed seeing the arrival of the Queen and seeing the Irish President, two women who I very much admire. For me it is interesting to see how a state visit is performed in Ireland and although it has been a grand and impressive welcome, the visit looks like it will be a great success.

Of the many state visits Elizabeth II has made, this alone ranks as a landmark because of its historic significance.

HM and PP are very brave. If I had only half of their constitution...

Both HM and the President are spot on in the fashion. If you look carefully, in the third photo, looks like HM has that most current fashionable bias drape to the dress beneath her coat.

Where do they get their energy?

I agree with everything you say. As to the Royals and their energy, I had the privilege of sitting just along from the Queen and Prince Philip on Sunday afternoon at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Despite the fact that HM is 85 and PP is nearly 90, the Royal Couple climbed up and down the [temporary] stairs in the stand several times quite briskly; in fact I saw the Queen only use the bannisters once, when she put out a hand for a couple of seconds. No sticks or other walking aids were used - and this is for a couple who is 25 years past the official retiring age!

Regarding the Queen's fashion, so far as I could see, she was dressed in the same fashionable bias cut dress both on Saturday [Pink] and Sunday [Green]. Both dresses were cut from lightweight wool and were accessorised with the Queen's 3-strand pearl necklace and complemented by exactly-coloured matching hats. Although there are not usually announcements about what the Queen is wearing at 'private' events like on Saturday and Sunday, I believe most of HM's wardrobe is now referred to as 'Designed in-house', which generally means by her dresser Angela Kelly, who indeed is sometimes actually named. I am not a fashion expert but do think that the Queen's dressing has become quite delightful in recent years - whilst they were alive, the Queen was dressed mostly by the London couturiers Norman Hartnell, Hardy Amies and his assistant Ken Fleetwood and Ian Thomas [originally from the house of Hartnell]; although always 'correctly turned out' by these gentlement, HM seems to look even better nowadays. [I do think it is a hard task for anyone to dress the Queen; she can't look too fashionable in one sense [if only because it makes photos 'date' so much more easily], she always has to 'stand out', so bright colours are essentially, and she also has to be careful not to look 'too extravagant' in these recessionary times. I think her current 'working wardrobe' fulfills these requirements very well.
