The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry admired the views from the building’s 42nd floor, 200 metres above street level, and met senior executives from joint developers British Land and Oxford Properties and members of the construction team, including four apprentices that worked on the project.

They were also presented with a bespoke Lego model of the building, created in tribute to the pioneering techniques employed in its construction whereby 80% of the building, including the 18,000 tonne steel structure, was pre-fabricated before being assembled on site.

The Leadenhall Building, also known as ‘The Cheesegrater’ on account of its distinctive sloping shape which is designed to protect views of St Paul’s Cathedral, is now close to fully occupied. Aon, the world’s largest insurance broker, has relocated its global headquarters from Chicago and recently welcomed 2,000 staff to the building. The company is joined by specialty insurer Amlin and twelve other companies from a range of industry sectors including the building’s architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

Lovely, such an event "out" together. The two of them really feel at ease with each other.

It probably was a very enjoyable afternoon for both the Queen and Camilla as they both dearly love animals and especially horses. From reading the article, it most definitely shows that HM sincerely has a passion for her horses and really grew to appreciate the work Monty does as the horse whisperer.

I just wonder if there were any kind of thoughts going through her head on how possible it would be to use "whispering" methods on politicians and statesmen and such.

OK first off- both ladies rock in those outfits! So it IS Monty Roberts! I thought for a sec- " Horse whisperer - Who? What in the world? Then I saw a photo in another thread, and thought it looked like Monty Roberts, but my eyes weren't sure. Then I saw more photos- and all makes sense. HM and Camilla look like they are in heaven. TBH, my first thought when I heard " horse whisperer " was " How awesome- HM and Camilla must have attended some event having to do with the themes of ACGAS, horses, and Robert Hardy." I am so silly!

Observations -
It is not easy to curtsy in a poncho.
The first photo that shows HM and Camilla sitting in the wicker chairs- the facial expressions are priceless!

Her Majesty made a surprise visit to the stables at the Royal Mews in Buckingham Palace with the Duchess of Cornwall to see horse whisperer Monty Roberts demonstrate his skills on the royal steeds.

Look from 1:45 when the Queen is walking. This is not a frail 90 year old.

Y'know- I don't know whether to laugh or cry happy tears here. You've got the Royals throwing wellies- and I can't tell who's having more fun - the children- or the so called adults.
Then you've got children hugging Kate- bring on the happy tears!
Then, it's on to arts and crafts, and again, I cannot tell who is having more fun- the children- or the so called adults- especially William! You gotta love when the future King of England is wearing a sheep hat on his head!
Love that special needs kids were included too.
So I ended up both crying and laughing!

I don't think a time was given, but it looks like all of the actors from the movie are arriving now. I imagine they'll be arriving shortly. Probably after all the celebs have arrived/been interviewed.

ETA: They are supposed to be arriving at 7 (UK time). So in about 45 minutes.
