Are the Queen and Philip attending Horse Guards Parade afterwards or are they just attending the morning service?

The Queen and DOE lived through the war. Unless ill health stops them, I can't see them not being there.

It's live on BBC one. The Queen and Philip was arriving in the Silver Jubilee Rolls-Royce Phantom VI who served as Her Majesty's official state car from 1977 to 2002, and its now used by Charles.

She looked great, as usual.

That has to be the worst outfit she has worn in many years. It looks like my dishcloths sewn into a dress with a blob on the hat as an afterthought. She really looks her age in these pictures. Philip looks younger than her for the first time in many years.

Maybe it's a harken back to the war years where you had to knit your own clothes. Not a good look but a great smile on the Queen's face.

The pictures are great. I'm surprised the Cambridge's didn't attend.

Well, these first months on the job William is working 100% to get into the job and team correctly before going down to 2/3ds later to allow for engagements. And Kate is still on "mat. leave". But if William went she would but she's not going without him. That's my guess.

HM looks wonderful, love her outfit and especially the major brooch she wore. So does the rest of the BRF, what a wonderful event.

I think the Queen looks great, perhaps a bit tired but then Prince Philip started his vacation before the Queen.

Prince Philip looks well rested.

Camilla looks lovely in the pale green dress.

Meant to say- loved Camilla's ensemble.

Now, I kind of like the 'blob on the hat' in an old fashioned sort of way. Must agree on the suit tho'.

The Queen, DoE, C&C have been the point royals on the WWII anniversaries with William playing more of a part in the WWI centennial.

Plus with the terror threats against this event, maybe they wanted William not there in case something happen. A two year old King isn't a good thing.

I saw her live on tv, and she was in sparkling form, as usual. She didn't look tired or frail at all.

I haven't a clue when it comes to fashion, but I always think she looks great in her own special way.

I like your posts and I don't mean to be rude, but you liked this outfit when she wore it at the flower market in Paris last year, but we are of course allowed to change our minds.

If the terror threats were that severe- no one would have been there.

Oh so I did say that, but with this closer view- I changed my mind. What was I thinking?

Well... They don't travel in the same cars and planes (exept for kids ia. Willliam and George) because of the risks if something happen. So it wouldn't be surprising if in a time with high terror threat level they thought about stuff like having a "backup" in case.... But in this case I just think it's that William is still working full time now.
