I love the Queen's brooch. She looks wonderful for today's visit.

Apparently some of the crowds have been waiting since midnight to get a good spot. I would say there are thousands of people there.

The royals now conducting a walkabout.

I think the Queen must have given Kate some subtle coaching on allowing for a good picture :) At their last joint engagement together, there weren't very many good pictures of them both looking at the camera at the same time. They seem much more in sync on this engagement.

Style on the Royal express: Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen board train on first day of Diamond Jubilee tour
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen gave a lesson in how to travel in style today as they kicked off the Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK. The Royals looked a far cry from the average train commuter, causing quite a stir at St Pancras station in London.
Kate looked to the 1940's for inspiration, wearing an elegant teal peplum suit by L.K. Bennett and James Lock hat. The Queen wore a cerise cashmere dress and coat with black trim by Angela Kelly, and a matching hat by the same designer.
Some pictures:
- The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Cambridge
- The Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge
- The Queen and Kate applaud at a plaque unveiling ceremony
- The Duchess of Cambridge talking to Her Majesty
- The Queen is presented with a bouquet of flowers
- Kate with her flowers
- Kate walking discreetly behind the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh

As usual, Kate looks fabulous.

I suspect she wore a darker color so as not to upstage HM.

And probably because of the loss of six British soldiers that were killed in Afghanistan. Kate is married to an officer of the British Army, so it was only appropriate to wear darker colours out of respect.

I find it really nice that the entire Royal Family has sort of taken the task of protecting and taking care of Kate in William's absence. This joint engagements with senior members of the Royal Family, warm interactions between Kate and her in-laws - it all sends rather hopeful signals for future.

I quite like Catherine's coat, and so lovely to see her with Philip and the Queen. Nice to see them all interacting with everyone. I do love Philip's stance, he always looks like he's watching in amusement, thinking of a witty comment, wondering what on Earth the people in front of him are doing.

Just read that the Queen will be attending a service for Commonwealth Day on 12.3.12 at Westminster, along with Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla and Sophie. Another little family day out.

A couple of the photos are - the first one- the Queen looking all serious, and Kate smiling away!
And then the one just before the image and details of Kate's outfit, the DOE looks like he is saying " Where is our train? This way?

And on the fifteenth, the Duchess of Cambridge will accompany the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on a visit to his children and arts charity.

I am LOVING all of these family engagements! So nice to see them all working together.

Nice they are bringing Catherine along too, I think it's great they are all working together this year. Really nice to see the family together in occasions other than Christmas and Easter.

The poster they all signed was lovely, and it still amuses me that they all just sign their Christian name. I know they have no surname technically to sign, but it just highlights their royal status. "The name's just Catherine."

The Queen has lightened up quite a bit since her mother died 10 years ago. When she was alive The Queen Mother fulfilled the role of National Grandmother and now The Queen has takem on the role of smiling grandmother. It seems to make her much more approachable.

Hear, hear!
I absolutely love the family engagements; the fact Windsors are putting a united front and embracing their newest member is quite heart-warming.
