The State Opening Of Parliament 2014 In Pictures

I heard a loud thud but I thought someone had dropped something. Now we know a page fainted.

Wow! Definitely thought someone had dropped something. Poor fellow.

This event is such a wonderful occasion - the new coach is an added treat, I agree about Camilla, she looks very regal.

The Hon. Charles Armstrong-Jones and Arthur Chatto were two of the pages and I got the impression it was one of them who fainted.

The Prince and Duchess were really worried.

No it wasn't, it was Viscount Airlie (?spelling?). And now of course its all over twitter and in the papers so he will be getting a hard time at school!

I too heard the thump and for a split second I thought the Imperial State Crown had slipped off HM's head and onto the floor! I'd just marvelled at the fact that in 60 years of doing this, that thing has never seemed to even wobble on the Queen's head. I suppose it's 'old hat' to her by now, no pun intended!

Camilla really did look truly cracking today, she really was made for that tiara.

I wouldn't be one bit surprised if he receives a letter wishing him good health and thank you for serving or something along those lines. Now that would be something to show his school mates eh?

Oh, I agree with you. And what a story he'll have to tell his grandchildren one day!

And facebook, and youtube, AND Google. Though if he gets teased at school for this I personally would shrug it off, they way I see it is Lord Arlie was chosen to be HM's Page of Honour and the other kids weren't!

Just watching a clip of the moment, I was both amused and in awe of the Queen's reaction - her complete unruffled response. Only years of experience can give you that ability to focus on the task in hand. Just a slight sideways glance at the end of a sentence without detracting from the delivery of the speech. Wonderful.

I like the Diamond Jubilee State Coach.
I like the fact that the crown atop the roof is carved from timber from Lord Nelson's HMS Victory.
I like the fact that there are timber segments from Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, Windsor Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Kensington Palace, and other buildings which were inlaid into the interior of the coach.
Very historic!
