The Queen does get to meet a varied lot in her role. Query what the conversation was about?

Just off the wall my guess would be the situation in Libya.

I recognise the name, but what is the General's role? Is he British military?
The Queen looks wonderful in that color.... but then she always looks wonderful!

Thanks... I should have known that, but I do not watch the news about the war... too depressing! If the Queen wanted news about the war in Afghanistan, wouldn't it make more sense for her to see the British General?
Don't get me wrong, it is wonderful that she cares about US troops. But wouldn't it be easier/faster to talk to the leaders in the UK military?

I am sure that she talks to UK generals but she is also knowledgeable enough to ask other people for their perspectives and knowledge.
