That's impressive. After a flight as long as that, I usually need to sleep for a day to recover. Here's the Queen, pushing 80, looking as rested as ever after a long flight and several hours of time difference, plunging straight into a bunch of work and being photographed at every turn.

Marvelous caps. Great job. I am impressed with her work rate. I mean here she is going to this country after a long day and she´s seems well rested like Elspeth said but she is pushing 80 and takes it all in stride. Brava to her.

Yes, bravo to her given her age and the distance of the trip. For me,
She slept in the plane. Royals and Rich people have very comfortable plans fully furnished ("bedrooms", "offices", etc).

NB: Examples of the inside of private jets are attached. Got them from the web:

And this link shows some pics of the private jet of Brunei' s Sultan
(I think the sink is made of Gold)

I hardly think a Canadian Forces Airbus would be as luxurious as that.

i got news from Hello about HM Queen and Prince Philip's Canada

Prince Philip shows Queen Elizabeth his new moccasins as Chief Alphonse Bird (left) and First Nation elder Eber Hampton look on

Her Majesty receives a colourful escort from Chief Alphonse Bird as she arrives at the First Nation University

18 MAY 2005

The Queen received an old-fashioned "family" welcome when she arrived in Canada on Tuesday. Her Majesty was greeted by a group of Cree Indians, who refer to the monarch as their "grandmother", when she touched down in the Saskatchewan capital of Regina.

Members of the First Nation Indian group beat their drums and chanted an "honour song" to show their appreciation for the royal visitor, whose great-great grandmother Queen Victoria promised their community land rights, free education and health care.

Dressed in a fur-trimmed suit of burnt orange, in recognition of the Saskatchewan's traditional colour, the sovereign and her husband visited a university set up especially for the native community. There they were escorted by Chief Alphonse Bird, who made quite an impression on photographers by combining his business suit with a traditional Indian headdress of eagle feathers.

Cree elders then presented the royal with an intricately embroidered quilt, while the Duke of Edinburgh received a pair of hand-made moccasins. Her Majesty reciprocated the gesture by offering her hosts a polished granite stone engraved with the royal markings "VR" and "EIIR", which she said would serve as a reminder of the "special relationship between the sovereign and the First Nation peoples".

The Indian community has indeed proved its loyalty to the crown. Among the welcome party were a number of elderly war veterans, carrying Canadian, British and Saskatchewan flags, in remembrance of the 9,000 indigenous North Americans who fought against the Nazis in World War II. Though it is a fact often overlooked in history books, the First Nation played an instrumental role in liberating the Netherlands from German occupation.

The Queen was at the Saskatchewan legislature today. It was raining but as many observers said, she doesnt let that sort of thing bother her.
Apparently it hasnt rained in Regina, "The Queen's City," in years.
But as the Premiere of Sask. put it so well, the Queen's vist has been like the "spring rain" on the prairies.

The Prime Minister made a statement, followed by the Premiere, and then the Queen. I thought her address was very touching. She said "my mother once said that this country felt like a home away from home and 60 years later, it still does. And its good to be back." In fact just yesterday one of the reporters mentioned that once when the Queen came to Canada from a visit to the United States, she felt like she was "coming back home."
There was a great crowd gathered to greet the Queen. Everyone noticed how happy and relaxed she look. She was beaming throught the walkabout.
Interesting though, one of the reporters mentioned how British observers said that she looks more relaxed on her visits to Canada than she often does at home.

The Queen unvieled a statue of herself riding a very special horse called Burmese. It was given to her by the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) in 1969. Since then the Queen rode Burmese every year during the trooping of colour until the horse was retired in 1986 (she was riding him during the infamous shooting incident). After that, the Queen never rode again during the trooping of colour.
The statue was beautiful. The Queen lingered for several minutes looking at it. I was surprised how long the walkabout was. It was quite festive actually, despite the rain, there was music playing in the background and the crowd was applauding.

After that the Queen made it inside the legislature where she unvieled a mural, met with members of the legislature and lots of other people.

I have tons of screen caps but it'll be a while before I can post them.
