That would be her aquamarines she's wearing, by the looks of things.

I expect President Bush was just glad to be out of his penguin suit and into his black-tie getup.

You mean she is actually wearing Queen Mary's aquamarines?
Now you sparked my curiosity. I searched for any other photos of those jewels she is wearing in that balcony but only found this link about her jewels on her official website The Royal Collection - Dress for the Occasion at Buckingham Palace this summer

I think the aquamarines were a wedding present from the country of Brazil.

There's a photo in post 42 of this thread:

I think the Aguamarines look stunning on her! They don't wash out her coloring like I've seen in some photos of her in rubies. While I'm not overly fond of the stones, I do think the Auquamarines are one of her best parures.

I hadn't noticed the resemblence to Queen Mary before but I can see a little bit of it now.

I agree. I love the aquamarines on her, although I am not a fan of the tiara. The evening dress she wore to the return dinner was stunning on her.

I thought the Queen dressed exceedingly well for this trip. She looked fabulous, she looked regal;this trip was quite a success!

I second that. She was absolutely regal in her dress. However, she sometimes seemed to be "loaded" down with clothing on, IMO.

Betty Ford is not in the best of health;she was operated on for an undisclosed condition earlier this year. Lady Bird Johnson is in very fragile health.I wasnot surprised that these two former first ladies were not there.

The Queen looked so happy and relaxed in some of the pictures posted from the dinner.Nancy Reagan had the grave misfortune of being escorted by Dick Cheney;he strikes me as a very disagreeable man...just my opinion.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth's dress sense

Britain's Queen Elizabeth's dress sense has been criticised by a New York journalist during her recent state visit to the US.
2007-05-11 10:12:32 -

Britain's Queen Elizabeth's dress sense has been criticised by a New York journalist during her recent state visit to the US. New York Post columnist Cindy Adams launched a scathing attack on the 81-year-old monarch's choice of attire for her week-long tour.

Adams wrote: 'Forget the hats, shoes, hairdo, wardrobe, armpit-length gloves and schlepping that stupid, black, long-strap, hanging handbag that must have her bus tokens, mad money, cellphone and keys to the kingdom, and we won't even discuss the bad bra.

Either is possible. The Queen Mother probably made several "final visits" to places over a few decades.

Prince Phillip learns about space toilets

Prince Phillip learns about space toilets

WASHINGTON, May. 10 (UPI) -- The use of toilets in space was explained to Britain's Prince Phillip after a tour of space facilities in the United States prompted him to ask about them.

It was explained that in space the toilets use airflow, since water flushes would have a few unsatisfying drawbacks in zero gravity, the BBC News Magazine reported Thursday.

I enjoyed the Queen's visit. I was annoyed at the "reports" on Fox News because they kept saying stupid things like "What does she know about horses?" They can't understand why Americans would feel admiration for QEII. I believe she is a wonderful person.

This is an insult to Her Majesty. A simple NY journalist can not criticize, neither understand the royal protocol.....this simply made him a fool.

What does Fox News know? They clearly don't do their homework as I thought even a rookie reporter would be able to find out that HM has been not only studying form, but combining breeding lines to produce her own champions on and off the track, for many years! .
