I hope a British poster or someone might be able to answer two questions:

why did the congregation remain seated when members of the Royal Family arrived and why were there so few curtseys to The Queen as she processed to her seat?

David Dimbleby explained that members of the royal family other then The Queen and the DOE weren't there in an official capacity they were simply members of the congregation so the other members of the church did not rise to greet them.

It is a personal thing whether you curtsey to The Queen or not, it is not mandatory. A lot of people bowing and curtseying so tightly packed together may not be the best idea.

We have a correction Cepe!

"The Queen will once again be close to the St Edward’s Crown at Westminster Abbey – for the first time since her coronation 60 years ago."

Still not true, in 60 years I imagine she's seen it previous times.

She opened at least one of the remodeled display areas at the Tower, so she's definitely seen it once.

A very beautiful service. I think the royals are now going to lunch.

I think it's amazing that The Queen, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and the future King or Queen (baby Cambridge) were all at the Abbey for the Coronation Anniversary service.

Got another DM classic! Apparently David Cameron gave a speech. Interesting way to describe a reading from the Bible.

I did like the poem especially the way it incorporated the Queen's own words towards the end.

One of my favorite things to watch at these royal COE ceremonies are the vestments of the clergy. As usual they were spectacular today. They really are works of art.

Beautiful service, shame that they didnt take James. I think he would be old enough for this special service.

The video of Kare is lovely. I love to see the BRF interacting. It was lovely the way Timothy Lawrence patted her back and to see her chatting to Lady Louise.

I think many of us are waiting for the day Wessexes to take James along to these events.

Did anyone make out the three rows of family seating order in the church? The angle made it hard to discern those closest to the camera. I lost it this side of Harry and on back:

DoY, Beatrice, Eugenie, Edward, Louise, Sophie,

Anne, Tim Laurence, Peter Philips, Autumn, Zara, Mike Tindell,

Duke and Duchess of Glos; D and D Kent, P andPss M of Kent

In fact, its the order of precedence (or order of succession at least)

I didn't get to watch this, because I was at work, but the images are quite lovely. I love the clips of the family interacting with each other and as always, happy to see Lady Louise in attendance.
