Anne, and her recycling of clothing...I give her credit for not being a clothes horse.

I love the video of Her Majesty talking to the girl. She appears to have a very easy way with children, and they're not afraid to approach her with their questions.

Amazing, I wonder how one keeps a storage system for 30 years of hats and dresses.

Watching the video of this walkabout by The Queen her age was very noticeable - at one point she appeared to be more shuffling than actually walking and even a slight stumble (I have watched the video a number of times to check) It is a little stumble but something I noticed because it was the sort of thing many of my elderly lady friends do.

She did look down at him in the video but she knew what he was doing.

I actually think it is impressive that he knew what tradition was. There are young men and women in my country that do not, and for that matter don't care to know. Even more impressive that he took the initiative to respect the Queen in that way.

Hey, when Nelson Mandela met the Queen, he laid down on the floor at her feet! A sign of respect for royalty in his country.
And when Princess Diana visited India, people touched her feet as a mark of respect.
What did the DM make of that?

I think its great that there are different ways of showing respect for a monarch. Its good to keep traditions alive especially when so many traditions are being lost. I admire that soldier who decided to do what he felt and knew was appropriate for who he is and what his people believe. Good for him. On the other hand, when people think its o.k. to touch the Queen, they either are ignorant or just plain dont care.

Wow, I wasn't aware of that custom, obviously not being from Fiji. I thought people only bowed/curtsied and/or shook hands upon meeting the Queen. I was, however, taught as a youngster to show respect for my elders.

I think it is just as respectful to others that HMQ makes the effort to remember all of the customs, both new and historic of her subjects.

The Duke of York, along with Beatrice and Eugenie, also attended.

ITNSource has clips of the event. I love it when they all greet each other by kissing their cheeks. Very cute.
