Oh, I didn't realise: I live in the UK so I sometimes forget about how British websites work for overseas viewers, and I also wasn't aware that you had tried this site before.

Does this work - Emotional tributes mark 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme? The article doesn't have much voiceover coverage, but it is written by someone who was at the event itself.

The weather may have been slightly overcast in Edinburgh this afternoon but the Queen certainly added a summary feel in her cheerful lemon ensemble.

The smiley monarch, 90, was joined by her husband the Duke of Edinburgh for the annual garden party at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

During her engagement the royal, who turned 90 in April, was presented with a commemorative stone bench by Nicola Sturgeon.

There are days when I look forward to these ceremonies and there are days when I don't look forward to them. Nice to see the royals though.

Why not? This is one of the things which make Great Britain great and makes me proud to be half british.

And our beloved Queen (again in high spirits) looks great:

Inside the Cathedral the processional route was changed ever so slightly and the procession used a ramp rather than the steps at the door (inside) so as The Queen wouldn't need to climb the 5-6 steps.

Well, it's a big day for Her Majesty.
And apparently, the DM decided it should be a big day for rear views of the males in the Royal Family (see also, the Mike Tindall Golf Tourney photos).
