It's always delightful to see the big crowds wherever Her Majesty visits. It's obvious that she's loved and respected by the nation, and as always, I love seeing her with children. She literally lights up when greeted by them.

Thank you.

Good to see the Duke back. I don't think he's going to let anything slow him down too much no matter what his doctors tell him.

The Duke is such a support! I went to look at the Zimbio photos of the Trooping of the Colors and there are several lovely photos of Her Majesty and the DOE chatting. (See below)

Can anyone tell me if it is usual for Prince Andrew to not be in military dress for this occasion? The wide balcony shots show him off to Her Majesty's right in Morning Coat (I think that's what it is called).

It is usual, I don't think he's ever worn military dress to this event. He wears a morning coat (you were right ) and he rides in the carriage with his daughters.

Andrew doesn't wear military uniform for this occasion because he doesn't hold any relevant army rank. He only has rank in the navy and so doesn't participate in an army event.

If they had had a Spithead review - as has happened at other major royal events but can't know due to the shrinking size of the RN - he would have been in naval uniform as he was when he attended the church service last week to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War.

Charles, William, Ann, Edward and The Duke of Kent ride because they hold the ranks they do in the army - colonels and above (both Charles and the Duke of Kent hold the rank of Field Marshal - as does Philip of course).

Is that a burst blood vessel in the Queen's eye? Did anyone notice if she had it yesterday?

I thought so, dbarn67, thanks. I think HM's had this problem a couple of times before. It's one of those things that looks awful but hopefully it's not caused by a more serious problem.

So much for HM and the DoE getting some rest after Trooping the Colour.

I believe it's why she's wearing tinted glasses in photos at her fashion thread.

This is nothing serious, unless it happens really frequently.

Does anyone know what causes the dark areas around Prince Philip's eyes?

They're caused by blood vessels under the skin. Skin often becomes more translucent with aging, and the skin in that area is already pretty thin. Some people are just more susceptible than others to getting them, too; Prince Philip's were already starting to appear by 1992, and I believe his mother also had them.

I'm sure the Queen can't wait to meet a former member of the terrorist group who killed her cousin. An unfortunate part of the role of head of state - having to be polite to merciless murderers and terrorists.
