Jen, you are very lucky to have seen Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip (he waved towards you, that's fantastic!) Thank you for sharing that great day and photos with all of us.

On another note, I'm looking forward to tomorrow night's gala dinner at the White House.

Well, it's still close enough for her to be considered (roughly) in age group with the Queen. I figured that she was at least 60, though I thought a bit older. I don't think it's a big deal, honestly, and not really a sign of any intelligence to know her age. If I didn't research her precise age, it's because I don't care that much. But my brain is still quite good, thanks.

They will have several more engagements on Tuesday then HM will host a return Dinner for the President and Mrs. Bush and then they will fly back to England. I think will be pretty much late in the night.

I just watched Robin Roberts behind the scenes at the White House on "Good Morning America". The desert is decorated with roses, and is lovely. Robin will be interviewing the First Lady within the next hour.

Robin is also a guest for the State Dinner tonight, so hopefully we will get some good information from the inside, on "Good Morning America" tomarrow.

For a residence that is familiar with official state dinners, the queen's visit has certainly shaken things up- she's definately getting the "royal" treatment

19 or 20 years is not in an age group. There is a big difference between 60 & 81 But, you are right it is not a big deal but, her age or the sillyness of the so called making faces behind the queens back.

Related Articles To: The Queen is coming! State dinner Monday for her majesty Queen Elizabeth II
has some interesting articles about the visit and dinner.
i haven't been able to find the menu or the guest list anywhere, i suppose it will be given out after the dinner!
i picked up there was going to be split pea soup with lavender and lamb but none of the other courses. it's on every channel this morning, bush is glad because it's just came out his approval rating has hit all time low of 28% so it's getting lost in the news headlines.

Fact Sheet: The State Visit in Honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh
fact sheet from laura bush web site.
can't find the menu or guest list it must be released after the dinner.
i heard split pea soup with lavender, lamb and spring blossoms? for dessert

C-SPAN
here's a link maybe people out of the states can watch live
ITS ON

i think cnn.com will have parts of it , they keep cutting to live shots. it's a beautiful sunny day and there are 1,000 it looks like on the lawns (don't worry, very secure area)
they had a shot of a tree she gave on her last visit, it's big and beautiful, looks like some sort of the ceremony will be near it.

eventhough she looked great, i do wonder why her majesty would choose to wear black and white--since her clothing is usually more colorful
and what was that with president bush, "she gave me a look that only a mother would give a child" or something like that, and he winked at her at one point i think hehe. very interesting

Dinner will be covered live on Cspan tonight at 7
my impressions of the opening ceremony, i love anything history, throw in bands and pomp with hats wow
the elements were there but all and all a so-so show. it seemed very cold and rushed to me.
they got there and the queen had changed to black and white suit with a hat of course. laura didn't have a hat on, the duke was carrying what looked like a panama. when the cannons started to the 21 gun salute, scared me! then the UK national anthem came on and start singing (in my head) America the Beautiful, why are they playing that instead of the Star Spangled Banner (our anthem).....ding ding menopause moment God Save The Queen same music.
reading lips alot of people said "pleased to meet you" lol (shades of middletons)
reviewed the troops (basically a small circle around the yard), the military officer spoke once then used his hand for directions pretty cool. bush loped through this part, poor Queen(trying to keep up) who's done this more than once is trying to review them and he's walking like he's late to lunch (found that very annoying) laura and the duke seemed quite "chatty" seemed to be talking and laughing. i didn't see any natural personal interaction between the Queen and bush. the queen took out her glasses and speech from her purse (i'd love to know whatelse is in there)
Bush said we would always be proud to trace our roots to the UK (i totally agree with that hear hear) then he had to throw in some politics(grrrrrrrr) then he really embarrassed me- he says the Queen has met 10 US presidents- boy did she give him a look, everyone started laughing (she said something i couldn't understand) and he remarked "a look only a mother could do" or something like that. leave it to him to bring up a womans age.
The Queen gave a lovely gracious speech, mentioning more than once it was a good time to review and take stock, the sympolism of our shared values of equality, democracy and rule of law. i'm not sure but i got the message while our nations ties will always be strong, our leaders come and go and shouldn't always expect unblinking support. just my opinion but i got the feeling she'd slapped his wrist somehow. They had about a 30 second appearance on the balcony, again it was rush-rush-rush. there were alot of little girls there with flowers, some were crying in disappointment awwwww. why he didn't step back and let the Queen set the pace to interact with people i don't understand... can't go there.

To me, Elise, i felt really amazed with the colour HM chose this time for the visit to the President. She has been in bright colours in the last few days and we have not been seeing her in black and white for a while, so with this colour this time bring more formal and seriousness look for Her Majesty.

I love the Washington arrival out fit, what a great color! The Royals hardly ever visit the West Coast. I think Charles did once, a long time ago If I am ever going to get to see a member of the BRF, it will have to be on a trip to London! Very cool for those of you that got to see them live!

I just think that her Majesty is wonderful. She has looked so very relaxed throughout this whole tour and her wardrobe has been gorgeous. I have loved all the photos and thank you all for posting them with such promptness. It has all been most exciting.

yes it does bring a more formal and serious look. I have to say the queen has looked fabulous throughout the entire visit, and the american media seems very interested in her clothes and hat. I also noticed the different purse today--smaller than usual i think.
Anyway- i have to say hats-off to the queen's speech writers. I like the way she so diplomatically touches on controversial issues as in the speech at the virginia capitol. I also have to say that despite the british media coverage of the controversy over slavery and native americans, there was not a lot of mention about that in the american media that I saw. Her majesty gave a wonderful speech acknowledging the issue and praising diversity will not touching in the controversy directly. i was very impressed.
Regarding today's speech, i dont think it was not necessarily intended as a slap on the wrist but it certainly sounded a bit like HM was telling Bush dont always take our support for granted, (i will look at the speech again)
whereas he was talking about how the US can always count on GB. In any case i was not impressed by bush's familiarity---the wink and the she looked at my like a mother-- at the risk of getting controversial I dont like it because she is after all the head of state of the UK, it wasnt the appropriate venue for him to say that given that this was the american head of state welcoming the head of state of another country. I dont think he would have said the same thing regarding a male counterpart. I dont think that that comment settled to well with the queen herself either, the crowd laughed, she just smiled politely.
I also wanted to mention that it was nice to watch the cspan footage of the walkabout outside the virginia capital, the queen was very smiley and relaxed, and at one point the governor was going in one direction but she specifically went the other way to take some flowers some children had for her. and then she was very relaxed when they went inside and were chatting with the kids. It was nice because u often get the image of the queen being so serious but she was very nice and seemed touched by the number of people that had showed up.

Bush nearly makes gaff in front of Queen

President George W. Bush, no stranger to the occasional verbal misstep, nearly placed the Queen in the 18th century on Monday in welcoming her to the White House on a state visit.
