The fly-past just started.
First planes: a Dakota flanked by two King Air aircraft.
They were followed by a Lancaster, Spitfires, and a Hurricane.
And finally, the Red Arrows! Perfect red, white and blue.

If Edward, Sophie and the children have gone to visit his father then I think any hopes of a last minute "Oh, bring them all out" have gone :(

It's such a shame that Lady Louise had to sit through the long service (no doubt extremely boring for a youngster!) and then isn't getting the fun of being out on the balcony.

Richard Palmer 's Twitter account:
Prince Edward is visiting Prince Philip in hospital in London at the moment, according to reporters at the King Edward VII Hospital.

It's a bit weird seeing so few members of the Royal Family up there though.
Much smaller in number than previous balcony appearances!

The Queen appears to be delighted.
They are all positively beaming.

It's been said that during this particular event, the Queen wanted the focus to be on her immediate successor (Prince Charles) and his family.

Jemma Samuel explained on Twitter what really happened with her flub during the service of thanksgiving.

That's why she was lost, because she had to find the correct page. Now I'm even more impressed with how well she recovered.

This is the start of the view of the official party in a King Charles reign. It has been talked about for awhile. He wants it down and this is sort of the phasing in of the furrier. You have now seen the NEW royal family.

Do you know this is the one thing that really annoys me....

Kate Middleton, Prince William Salute Queen Elizabeth II at Service of Thanksgiving - UsMagazine.com

The fact that over a year since their wedding The Duchess Of Cambridge is still been called Kate Middleton in the American Tabloids

What an amazing end to the Diamond Jubilee! The carriage procession was very nice and the crowds were unbelievable! I so wish I could have been there. I feel prouder of my Queen today than I have ever been before and truly believe that Elizabeth II is perhaps the greatest person of the modern era

I was a tad disappointed that the carriage procession was only 2 carriages strong and I felt disappointed that her whole family was not really included in the celebrations on the balcony and through the procession. I still am in awe of the amazing event that was a more than fitting tribute to our remarkable sovereign, but I really felt as if the Princess Royal, Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children should have also taken part - especially as you could see everyone behind the Queen craning for a look out onto the Mall. I think this would have given the occasion a bit more of the gravitas it deserved - I know that a King Charles is supposed to be all about a stream-lined royal family but it was the Queen's Day and it was about celebrating her, not what is to come, so I'm not sure what they were trying to say by only having Charles, Camilla, William, Kate and Harry as part of the celebrations.

Nevertheless I think the Jubilee has been remarkable and I will treasure my memories of it - even if they are from the couch

This nothing new I think King George VI had balcony appearance with just his wife and daughters.

The Queen has said all along,that she only wanted the Airs to the Throne, Aka Prince Of Wales and his family On The Balcony.

The Balcony

Why were so few of the royals on the balcony - would have thought that this would have been a perfect opportunity to see the children and grandchildren? What was the reason for choosing only 1 son and 2 grandchildren. I'm confused and a bit disappointed

I hate that too I know Kate probably doesn't but she will be Queen one day. I glad that Duchess of Cambridge is becoming more common now.

Can someone provide some source of this? I've only heard if this "Royal Family lite" concept in connection to Charles's accession. I simply think that on such a grand occasion such as this it was a tiny bit of a let down to see six of them on the balcony, that's all.
