In the first pic, are we to take it that the Queen had a name plate?
I think the visit was a lovely way to round off the Jubilee year- and what a gift to have part of the world named after you - it can't get much better than that.

She actually did; it read "Her Majesty The Queen".

As if she has not shown over her 60 year rule, that she can be trusted with a secret or two...

"Prof Barker said: ‘It muddies the waters. It will mean potentially the Queen will know things she is not supposed to know and hear things she is not supposed to hear." -DM

And as if politicians begin babbling awkward secrets the moment they are around the Queen.

Is that the only site? I've tried that site, tried downloading the player. Unfortunately it brought with it a lot of unwanted spam and add ons and messed up my computer.

If you can't get it anywhere else then it will almost certainly go up pretty quickly on the official royal YouTube channel, I think the NBC news website normal puts it up almost as soon as its broadcast as well.

tommy100 already posted a link to the Royal Channel where you will be able to view the Queen's Christmas Speech live.
The broadcast will begin at 3pm (British time) on Christmas Day.
