This really is turning out to be a nice series of engagements.

Today was a wonderful start for HM's Diamond Jubilee tour. Thousands turned out and, importantly, the people who came were of every race, religion and age. It puts paid to the idea that the Monarchy is only really valued by the 'Home Counties' set.

I feel that in taking family members with her on engagements, HM is trying to bring them along, as if to say, the monarchy will be in safe hands when I'm gone, the continuity will still be there. The monarchy is not just me. Does that make sense?

Congratulations to the winner; I'm sure she must be thrilled, but I'll tell you the truth - I only like the color of those shoes but not the style. I know Kate is adept at wearing stilettos, but these are extreme in height!

Lemme add to this something I just saw on youtube." Oh Catherine, don't open your mouth cause you say such silly things when you do"

ugh I cannot understand haters though. But no really great engagement cannot wait for the next one.

Those shoes are something to wear once because it is expected, and then to go to the back of the closet.

Thanks for that, can't believe I missed that one!

Oh, and another one - she smiles too much. I mean, the cheek of her to be pleasant to people she meets!!

Seeing the Queen, the Duke, and Catherine interacting with warmth and ease is delightful! I am happy that Catherine seems to have been accepted and is liked by the Royal family. There are so many wonderful pictures of today. They all look beautiful. Yea!

That about sums it up. The Queen is signaling an easy transition of the monarchy into capable hands by showcasing her family and involving them more in her engagements. I think it's a wonderfully subtle method (or maybe not so subtle) of her confidence that the monarchy will continue to thrive with future generations.

This makes complete and total sense and I very much hope this is something she continues to do often.

yes. I think they are also trying to make it not so noticeable if they cut back Phillips appearances as well. I would expect other members of the family to join in as well.

I like to think these past few years have been a truly happy time in The Queen's life, both on a professional and personal level. Most of the younger generation of royals seem to be coming along fairly well, they all seem to think the world of her as a grandmother, and I imagine it was satisfying for her to see William, especially, happily married to a woman who appears to be taking all the royal hoopla in stride.

Compared to the Fortnum & Mason visit last week, it seemed that the Queen and Catherine spent a lot more time chatting. It's only natural, seeing as they were seated next to each other during the fashion show and Philip was off elsewhere. I do wonder if Catherine has given the Queen any sort of fashion tips.

My understanding is that they took the Royal Train to Leicester, which would be a first for Catherine. However, from all the media reports, it sounds more like they took an ordinary scheduled train. Can anyone clear up my confusion?

I think it's far more likely that the Queen has given Catherine fashion tips than the reverse :)
