Thanks for posting. HRH DoE looks stupendously well. He's a marvel. HM looks great, too. Lovely outfit.

The word "mandatum" is the first word of the "Office of the washing of feet". The phrase is: mandatum novum do vobis - A new commandment I give to you....

Sadly, the footwashing part went out of fashion some time ago, but some religious groups still use it.

Roman Catholic Church still performs the footwashing.

So, tomorrow's the Maundy Service; I'm sure Beatrice is excited. I hope also that Lumutqueen is prepped and ready to go, hopefully with a good thick coat, it's seriously cold all of a sudden.

I wish I could attend these sorts of things! I was in Windsor last Saturday, the day after the Memorial Service for The Queen Mother. If only I went the day before, I could have caught a glimpse of a Royal! The Queen was in when we were in Windsor as her flag was up. I can't wait to see images from tomorow of Bea with her Granny and Grandad!

I'm prepped with 3 layers! I'm leaving in a minute and the Queen should be arriving in York at 10. I'll try to keep you updated but I might just be a little too excited! With definitely take thousands of pictures!

UPDATE: i'm here, the place is heaving but i'm at the front. Police are everywhere and helicopters are flying low! :)

Queen is due to arrive by train at half 10, travel.through micklegate to the Minster for 10:50. Service will be an hour long, then it's on to Mansion house for lunch at 11:30.

Glad you managed to nab a good spot Lumutqueen. What's the weather like? Cold and sunny? Have you seen any of the mad royal fans that go everywhere the Queen goes that have been in some of the documentaries on the RF?

The Queen wore turquoise and Beatrice wore Navy. She was whisked away almost immediately which was a massive disappointment.

For once Beatrice really looks fantastic - got it right - and she looks every inch a princess.

The Queen - well she looks like she has a million times before.

It's odd seeing Beatrice with the Queen on Sky News just now, much like Kate she was being very reverential, careful always to be walking behind HM and the DoE.

How lovely that the Queen was accompanied by Beatrice ( who looks wonderful). Is there a particular reason for her accompanying the Queen on this occasion?

No, apparently she just wanted to join her grandmother in her special Diamond Jubilee year. I think we'll see more of these 'family engagements' in the months ahead.

Beatrice looks excellent, I'd have liked the hemline a tad longer, otherwise, she looks great!

The Daily Mail article on this morning's service with some really nice pictures of HM and Beatrice:

The Queen and Bea: Royals hand out money to pensioners in York to mark Maundy Thursday | Mail Online

Lumutqueen, do you spot yourself anywhere there?
