This is for everyone who contributed all the pictures and videos for us to see. Being here in USA it was so wonderful to see all this.....I really appreciate it. I so dread the day she is no longer with us, Queen Elizabeth is one of a kind and so lovely. The picture of her and the lady giving her the orchid is precious, her smile really lights up in that picture, she must like flowers.

What a wonderful gesture of the French government to name a Parisian flower market after her. She appears to have been treated wonderfully during her time in France. I'm sure she appreciated it.

You are welcome

Here you can more videos taken from different angle



Yes,it seems the Queen adores flowers.She wanted to visit this market again
The lady in question not only offered the Queen an orchid but also a rose plant named Elizabeth
She received another flower or perfume given to her in a basket
The Duke of Edinburg also had his share of gift (see the video below minute 1:57)
I adored The Duke joke on minute.He is absolutly unique

Video: Parisians turn out to see the Queen - Telegraph

According to some medias,the Queen told François Hollande in the airport that this was her best visit in France.She added to her husband that he can stay if he wish

Even if the economical situation is not good,french authorities have done their best to honor her majesty.It's well known that François Hollande since his election has reduced the budget of the Elysées palace.
Anyway,for the Queen they have served foie gras and truffles that the Queen likes.
Its well known that her Majesty loves France and in return french people adores her.
It is said that the Queen was always surprised by the warm welcome she had from a country who sent one of her queens to the guillotine

I think Prince Philip looks very spry as well. God Bless them both.

The Queen is amazing, not only did she have multiple engagements during the day but changed clothes 3 or 4 time daily.

I especially liked the change of clothes on the train ride to France.
Also, for the 'heads of state' photo when she removed the green coat she placed the brooch on the dress.

Pretty nifty change at that. Swap one white coat for a lightweight white jacket with black piping and trimmed with the same print as her dress and one beautiful navy and white hat for an equally gorgeous white one trimmed with black piping and matching fabric from her dress. That's it, no muss, no fuss.

Oh, I forgot, she swapped the Sapphire and Diamond Grapes brooch for the first public outing of the Botswana Flower brooch.

The Duke of Edinburgh shows no signs of slowing down with a packed programme of engagements as he prepares to turn 93 years old.
Prince Philip has a busy run of events coming up this week despite having just returned from a high profile three day state visit to France to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
On the eve of his birthday, the Duke is set to join the Queen at a reception at Buckingham Palace to recognise the UK's innovative technology sector.
Prince Philip sets energetic pace as he turns 93 - Telegraph

Good for him. I've always admired the fact that at his age, he's still willing to perform royal engagements. Most royals at his age tend to 'slow down', but Philip is still strong.
