I checked time zones on a site: now it's exactly 3.27pm in Regina, so they haven't arrived yet. It's 10.27 in the UK: almost bed time.
Supposing that they go to bed at 10 in Regina, it would be like going at 4am!!!

Well the Queen will be arriving at 6:30 eastern time (which, I believe, is 4:30 central/saskatchewan time). So there's still an hour to go before the live coverage begins. I'll save some screen caps and post them as soon as possible.
With the political bombshell today, looks like the government is less likely to fall on thursday, perhaps the Queen's visit wont be overshadowed by politics after all.

Her Canadian standard is being unfurled.

Queen Elizabeth II in Canada Amid Turmoil

By ROB GILLIES, Associated Press Writer

TORONTO - Queen Elizabeth II flew in to western Canada for a royal visit Tuesday, with the nation's governing party embroiled in a political scandal that has threatened its hold on power. The queen and Prince Philip arrived in Regina, the provincial capital of western Saskatchewan, where they are taking part in centennial celebrations for the province's union with the Canadian confederation.

The Queen is the head of state in Canada, a member of the British Commonwealth of former colonies.

The queen, wearing a salmon-colored suit with black trim, was met at the airport by Canada's Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson, the queen's representative in Canada, Prime Minister Paul Martin and other dignitaries.

The 79-year-old monarch has visited Canada at least 22 times since she becoming queen and has referred to it as a second home. Though Canadians are somewhat indifferent to the monarchy, most have great affection for the queen, toasted at official events and whose silhouette marks their coins.

The visit begins just two days before Martin faces a vote of non-confidence in Parliament. Should his minority Liberal government lose what's expected to be a very close vote, general elections will be called.

The Liberals got a huge boost on Tuesday, however, when a key Conservative member of Parliament defected to the Liberal Party.

Royal tradition has been to bow out during election campaigns to avoid any suggestion that the visit is being used to shore up support for an incumbent government.

At least one royal watcher does not believe national politics will hurt the long-awaited royal visit.

"Politicians are always on their best behavior when the Queen is around," said John Aimers, dominion chair of the Monarchist League of Canada.

The opposition, however, has accused Martin of using the Queen's visit to prop up his government. Martin said he intends to greet the royal couple when they arrive Tuesday evening and he will address the official welcoming ceremony on Wednesday morning before returning to Ottawa.

If Martin's government hit hard by a corruption scandal within his Liberal Party were to fall Thursday, officials say the queen would not get caught up in the procedure of dissolving Parliament.

The Queen was welcomed by the Governor General Adrienne Clarkson and her husband, the PM and his wife, the Saskatchewan Premier and his wife, the Lieutenant Governor (in pale yellow) and others. Lots of bows and curtsies. The Queen has left the airport now and is making her way to the First Nations University, the only one of its kind in North America.
The Queen was wearing her mother's brooch, which she also wore as a princess during her 1950s visit to Canada.

The Queen made a brief speech and gave the university a piece of stone from Blamoral Castle with her and Queen Victoria's initials on it.

The Queen and Prince Philip were both given gifts. She got a quilt and the Prince was giving moccasins.

btw..aside from Canada's red and white Maple Leaf, many of the people in the crow are carrying small green flags. Those are Saskatchewan's centennial flags.

After leaving the First Nations University, the Queen made her way to her hotel where she had a private meeting with Canadian PM Paul Martin.
