Nice gallery from inside the Elysee Palace. At one point HM is showing to President Hollande a portrait of Queen Victoria on display in the Salon des Portraits.

The Queen and the Duke just arrived at the Bayeux War Cemetery, with French PM Manuel Valls, the POW and the DOC as well.

Wonderful photo. Where are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge?

This is a very demanding schedule for The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, they are not young anymore.

I think it would've been brilliant to have Charles & Camilla and William & Catherine to attend the State Banquet since they're all in France at the same time. Just my thoughts.

I agree, can't imagine them going back until tomorrow anyway.

That is absolutely true. I have to bow head to the stamina of them. Basically they are out & about every single day this week! I also had a look at the Court Circular for 5th June, and found out that upon arriving in Paris, HM even held an Investiture at the British Embassy before going to the Welcoming Ceremony! And then, next week she will have a Reception on Monday evening, a Garden Party, a school visit & then Trooping the Colour! Seriously this is unbelievable!

This is a State Visit of Her Majesty and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh to President Hollande. The PoW, the DoC and the Cambridges are only here to participate in the D-Day commomerations, they are NOT on a State Visit, plus they are not the Head of State.

Yes, I know all of that. I just think it would've been great if they were able to attend. It's very rare to have the major senior royals in another country at the same time. I think it would've been a great opportunity to have them attend in The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh's honor.

Ah the banquet is black tie, a nice surprise as it was usually business suits since 2011.
