Looks like a lovely morning in Windsor,nice crowds lining the streets,many of them are either Irish living in the UK or have Irish ancestry.RTE Radio1 interviewed many of them earlier.

Ceremonial welcome & carriage ride to the castle almost over,I never noticed the bells ringing at Windsor on previous State Visits.One Irish commentator quipped it was the Angelus bells (which still ring daily on Irish radio at 12 noon).

I'm so glad that we are getting a chance to actually watch this historic State Visit. I know it's happening because this is such an historic occasion but I really do wish more of these State Visits were broadcast Live either on a news channel or perhaps from the official Monarchy website.

I am a-tingle with the importance of the moment. This is what can happen when people focus on what they agree about rather than what sets them apart. And focus on the future, rather than the past.
Actually, that's an excellent recommendation for life in general and behavior on the Forums in particular.

Nice touch using the Band of the Irish Guards for the Windsor welcoming ceremony. The Irish Guards went to Cyprus on deployment after St Patrick's Day so they were not available.

Truly historic moment in history. Time has a way of healing old wounds. May both nations prosper together in harmony and friendship for many years to come.

Irish President Michael D Higgins has arrived in Britain for his country's first ever visit by a head of state.
His four-day trip is a sign that relations between the two countries have been transformed since the Queen's historic visit to Dublin in 2011.
But it has been overshadowed by the decision to invite Northern Ireland's deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, a former IRA commander, to a state banquet at Windsor Castle this evening.
Former MP Mr McGuinness, who refused to take his Commons seat because of the oath of allegiance to the Monarch, snubbed a gala banquet in honour of the Queen during her visit to Ireland in 2011.
