Red velvet cupcakes are delicious . The videos are very enjoyable and I'm watching them too. Everyone did such a fabulous job.

That was probably one of my favorite parts . I'm a chocoholic, so I can absolutely relate to her.

Thanks for all the links to images and videos, i'd LOVE a F&M hamper for myself.
I'd love to see Lady Louise with her Granny on a day out. I think she would love it. I think it's great that Eugenie and Beatrice will be helping Her Majesty with some engagements, and I too would love to see Sophie have some engagements with her mother-in-law.

It was so nice to see these three ladies on an engagement together! I admit that Camilla and Catherine seemed to stick together while the Queen did her own thing, but I'm sure it was actually planned that way. After all, stuff like this tends to be planned down to the last detail.

Even if the Queen is the highest lady of the land, Catherine is the rising star. I love that she is doing engagements with the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall because she can bring more attention to both of them.

I visited Fortnum and Mason when I was in London many, many years ago and would gladly go back in a heartbeat! Is it wishful thinking to hope that I can get one of those picnic hampers shipped to the colonies?

Finally, it would be nice to see Lady Louise accompanying the Queen on an engagement, though I think her parents would rather shield her from the spotlight for a bit longer. But the idea got me thinking: could Louise and James be staying with Granny while their parents are on a Jubilee tour? I'm sure they have a nanny taking care of them, and their schools are in the Windsor area so they probably aren't spending the night at Buckingham Palace. But I'll bet they have some doting grandparents on the weekends when the Queen and DoE are in residence at Windsor!

We only got to see some minutes on video and the fact that HM did not speak to Catherine then doesn't matter much - she could talk to Catherine to her heart's delight in the car on the way forth and back. I believe the fact alone that the queen took Catherine with her speaks aloud of her liking for the new addition to the family.

Yes, I do hope the Queen does like and appreciate Catherine. Perhaps I am overly sensitive to appearances, it seems unnatural to me not to see any eye contact or conversation between them.
I have added a picture of the Queen's quizzical look at Catherine's shoes. I wonder what the Queen is thinking?!

I agree, but I guess that's to be expected for her first engagement with them. I think the royals are being protective of Catherine while William is away.

Thank you to everyone for the pictures and general updates!

Camilla has two dogs at Clarence House, too. Terriers, I think. Isn't one named Rosie? So all the Royal dogs will be in for a treat...

Just found that it's in fact two Jack Russels, Tosca and Rosie, plus Beth, the dog she adopted from the Battersea animal shelter.

I think if you took the crown off the cake and put it on top of the queen's head and substituted the crown with HM's hat, no one would really have wondered....

It does look like a missing layer of the cake doesn't it?

I love the cake, it looks yummy! Is it just me or Catherine seems to be very interested in that crown?!

'Those resemble stilts! Better her than me'. Just my interpretation of course . She could also be thinking that perhaps once Catherine gets home, she'll want to throw those shoes in the very back of her closet due to achy feet.

Thank you for the information. I remembered that she had a dog named Beth that was adopted, but didn't know if she was staying with her or not. Well, I'm happy all of their four-legged friends got yummy treats then.

Probably because it looks as if it was made from marcipan.... Or maybe she tries to remember the details to describe it to her brother, the cake designer...

Absolutely, since hats are certainly as much a part of the Queen's look as is a crown. Would give a delicious meaning to the phrase, "I'll eat my hat."

I love the part where Catherine grabs a chocolate and quickly puts it in her mouth. Her face is so cute like a little kid trying not to get caught

As Eugenie is still a full-time univeristy student I would be highly surprised as the normal practice has been to allow the young royals to finish their education before doing anything big time.

In addition all the evidence is that the York girls are not going to be doing royal duties at all and thus to have the accompany HM would send the opposite message.

Louise will not do engagements with anyone ever. She is being raised to be a totally private individual who will have the chance for an almost completely private life, like Peter Philips, as she grows up. She is already down to 9th in line and will only drop further and further as her cousins continue to marry and have their own families.

Don't forget that the photo is only a two-dimensional presentation. It's possible that the Queen was looking at something else and we can't see that in the current perspective.

I'm sure HM and Catherine were able to talk in the car before the engagement and afterwards. The fact that they arrived and left together could mean that they spent time together at Buckingham Palace before or after the event. But during the actual event, the Queen would have wanted to make sure she spoke to as many of the Fortnum and Mason employees as possible.

I'd imagine if Catherine attended, as a wife of one the Queen's grandson's, then perhaps Beatrice and Eugenie may attend with the Queen? I know William and Harry both do engagements, whereas the Princesses don't, but it would be nice to see them go with Granny. I know Lady Louise will never attend any enagements with the Queen, nor will she ever attend any with her parents, but it is a nice image to think of her with the Queen opening something. She'd love it.

Camilla's voice is very deep, isn't it? What I noticed about Catherine when she speaks is how clipped her voice is. The wives clearly receive some training regarding their word pronunciation, Sophie was never half as posh as she sounds now than when she began.
