Aussie singer Delta Goodrem will be singing at tonight's opening ceremony. She'll be singing a song that she wrote along with Brian McFadden & Guy Chambers:

Together We Are One

Here we are
Sharing our lives
We made it through
The good and bad times
And still we stand
With hope in our hearts
No matter what
We will play our part
And now we've come so far
One chance to touch a star
Go higher ... and higher
Find your guiding inspiration
In a place where dreams are made
With a lifetime's preparation
It's no time to be afraid
Put our difference behind us
While you shine like a sun
See what we've all become
Together we are one
Inside, your heart and soul
You reach so high
To reach your goal
And her we stay
With everything
You gave it all
Till there is nothing left
Seek out the strength to win
No thoughts of giving in
Go higher
Then higher
Find your guiding inspiration
In a place where dreams are made
With a lifetime's preparation
It's no time to be afraid
Put our differences behind us
While we're shining like a sun
See what we've all become
Together we are one
Find your guiding inspiration
In a place where dreams are made
With a lifetime's preparation
It's no time to be afraid
Put our differences behind us
While we're shining like a sun
See what we've all become
Together we are one

And Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip have arrived in Melbourne, but no pictures have been put on the Internet yet!!

A few more from the Queen & Prince Philip arriving in Melbourne today



Did HM change outfits on the aeroplane? Because in Sydney she's wearing a blue outfit getting on the plane, and in Melbourne getting off the plane she's wearing the green outfit?

And one from last night's dinner

Not too long till the Opening Ceremony now!!!

It would certainly seem that she changed outfits on the flight from Canberra to Melbourne. That is a surprise as it is short flight but she must have freshened up by changing.

She looked great as she boarded the plane in Canberra but wearing green again in Melbourne - um - as a Sydneysider I suppose she had to wear the same colour just so as not to show favouritism to one city over the other.

The Opening Ceremony has just started, and may I say, the opening few minutes have been very nice. I really liked the bit where they went through a picture all the other 17 Comm. Games in the leading up to M2006. And the fish are now sprooting water....

What a fantastic trip this has been so far, it's just wonderful to see Her Majesty performing this visit with such energy and success, and her wardrobe so far has been lovely. It's hard to find words even to describe the special feeling for this visit, if it will really be her last big tour...

Maybe some people, including the kids, were trying to wind me up but the attitude really was - who cares about her.

Sorry - but that was my experience today at a Western Sydney school.

NB These are NOT my sentiments but those of the kids and my colleagues.
I can understand that. It's often a generational thing. I was born in 1985, am staunch royalist, but realistic enough to realise we probably don't have long left before we become a republic. :(

I have once again seen my Queen!! Her Majesty attracted a huge crowd in Melbourne for the luncheon held at the Royal Exhibition Building. I was able to attend a reception at the Royal Society of Victoria and meet HRH THe Duke of Edinburgh. It was such a thrill, HRH being also the Colonel-in-Chief of my corps. Earlier on Wednesday, I was fortunate enough to have attended another reception with HRH The Earl of Wessex which was also fantastic. It was a wonderful day that I wish had lasted longer, but I'm sure we all feel that after such occasions.

Von Schlesian may I ask what were The Duke of Edinburgh and The Earl of Wessex like? Were they polite friendly rude? Just wondering.

Also I have a question which I hope someone can answer. Why do England, Scotland and Whales compete as three countries in the Commonwealth Games but all compete as Great Britian in the olympics?

I met HM the Queen at the Royal Exhibition Building, Von Schelsian. I presented Her Most Gracious Majesty with a bunch of Australian native flowers.

Their Royal Highnesses were both extremely polite, dignified and warm. Both exercised remarkable cheer and made all those around them feel at ease.
