It's quite a bright, sunny day in Windsor. There are big crowds in place on the Long Walk. This is the sort of thing that the Queen will absolutely love, it's right up her ally.

I watched the last part of the parade and the one thing that stuck out in my mind was the stamina of Prince Philip and HM. I know I would have been uncomfortable standing for such a long period of time but to stand there as unflinching as these two were is so remarkable. Watching Philip at full attention and saluting, if I didn't know better, I'd be hard pressed to believe that man is close to 91 years old

They're not attending, no.

HM seemed to really enjoy the RAF jets flying past in the formation of my username. How nice of them to remember me on this special occasion .

Queen Elizabeth attended the Armed Forces Parade and Muster in Windsor Castle, Windsor, England, Saturday, May 19, 2012. More than 2,500 troops paraded before the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. Sailors, soldiers and Royal Air Force personnel from nearly all areas of the British Armed Forces were represented in the main body of the parade, together with a tri-Service Guard of Honour and six military bands.

Pictures from the Parade:

Queen Elizabeth looks great as usual.
Again another hilarious look for the King of Swaziland's consort

A glorious celebration: Queen watches troops parade at Windsor Castle as RAF fly past to mark Diamond Jubilee
Quote:
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh watched with pride today as thousands of troops paraded through Windsor to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. Crowds of onlookers wearing red, white and blue lined the town's streets to greet members of the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force as they marched. Some 2,500 servicemen paraded through the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle and then through the town, together with a tri-service Guard of Honour and six military bands.

First pictures of royal guests:
- Inkhosikati LaMbikiza of Swaziland
- King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia (and I believe it's Queen Mesenate Mohato Seeiso of Lesotho next to them)
- Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Prince Henrik 1
- Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Prince Henrik 2
- Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg
- King Simeon of Bulgaria and Queen Margarita

- The Countess of Wessex 1 (love the way Sophie looks at the Queen )
- The Countess of Wessex 2
- The Earl and Countess of Wessex
- Princess Anne
- Princess Anne and Prince Andrew 1
- Princess Anne and Prince Andrew 2
- Prince and Princess Michael of Kent

And for anyone who missed the parade, here is a video of the flypast. I was so exited to see the Spitfires.
Magnificent show! You Brits certainly know how to impress when you want to; I just hope you'll put as much effort into the Olympics.
How absolutely gorgeous were the formations, especially the "60". As for the "EIIR" formation by the Hawks - that was epic. The Queen herself looked quite thrilled, as the commentator rightly noted.

Once again I feel that Big Bird is missing some of his feathers. Her outfits stand out like Beatrice's hat did at Will and Kate's wedding.

Full view.
After yesterday's outfits, it's positively demure.

The Lancasters and Spitfires always bring a tear to the eye. The EIIR and 60 formations were great, some of those jets are just 5 feet apart. Then the Red Arrows to finish it all off, what could be better?

Mrs Swaziland has obviously adopted the motto 'if you're not gonna go big, you may as well go home' for this visit. She's certainly got us all talking about her, maybe that's all she wanted.
