The weather in London is currently looking abit dodgy for the weekend, so I do hope the most we'll get are a few showers and nothing more. But I am worried about the carriage procession! Not wishing to raise the Golden State Coach question again as that has been answered, but I wonder if it will be on standby in case of rain? The 1902 State Landau can be covered, but only has small windows, whereas the GSC has alot of windows!

I think it was said somewhere that in case of rain the Australian State Coach will be used.

The Queen not having her own children on the balcony is a major snub to them in my opinion. This is a celebration of her 60 year reign not another pr exercise for Clarence House. Anne, Andrew and Edward have never been disloyal to their mother, unlike Charles, and their participation in her reign deserves to be acknowledged.

I understand and agree with downsizing the monarchy but we're not talking about Princess Michael pushing her way to the centre of the balcony at Trooping the Colour, we're talking about excluding The Queens own children from a balcony appearance to celebrate her reign. It's a very cynical pr move. I would rather see her 4 children appear with her than William and Harry.

I hope the weather stays dry for everyone in London this weekend. The Jubilee will eclipse the Olympics. There won't be another monarch like her in our lifetimes and unless the unthinkable happens another Diamond Jubilee.

First off, warm greetings and welcome to TRF Thorstein! I hope you find being here as informative as I have and feel among friends.

I have never seen or heard of anything that would indicate that Charles in any way has ever been disloyal to his mother or the Crown. If anything, he's been the hardest working and most prepared Prince of Wales in history.

Along with this being a celebration of HM's 60 year reign, to me, it is also a celebration of the monarchy in general. Most of us alive cannot remember a time when there was someone else on the throne besides Elizabeth and for a lot of people that symbolizes continuity and a sense of security in good times and in bad. To me it is not unusual for the currently reigning monarch to show that she's very much aware that continuity needs to and will continues into the future and is taking steps to assure her people that this will be so. These subtle glimpses of the future of the UK and the Commonwealth shows how much HM has faith in her line of succession and paints a picture of hope. Most likely, this has been worked out ages ago as the "Firm" never does anything without it being carefully planned out and I seriously doubt that any member of the royal family hold any objection to the reasoning behind the message HM is trying to portray.

With all this in mind, I have a gut feeling that after the Jubilee celebrations are over and done with and the Olympic games finished, we're going to be seeing the Queen and the DoE being able to take things much easier and the Charles, Camilla, William, and Kate taking on more and more of the workload with the rest of the family in full support.

The Queen is likely to travel in a carriage with Charles and Camilla today due to the absence of the Duke of Edinburgh:

I am disappointed about the carriage procession to be honest, but i am sure everything will look great either way. A statement has said that Lady Louise is attending. That makes me happy!

Are there any possibilities to watch the service at St.-Pauls-Cathedral via internet? BBC will only broadcast it for all who are in the UK, but not abroad!

I'm so glad to hear that! I hope she can give her Granny a little of sunshine, since Prince Philip can't be there, and I'd imagine that Her Majesty may feel a bit subdued.

BBC America's coverage is starting now (HD feed on the east coast, at least). I'm trying to stay awake and highly regretting those two glasses of red wine that I had after dinner. But I'm sure this will be worth the lack of sleep.

BBC One has long since started the coverage.
They just showed people waiting outside, some of them apparently there back from last night's concert.

Aaaaarrrrrgggg!!! BBC Canada just cut into the service randomly!! Dude, seriously?!?!? Not a fan of the Beeb Canada right now.

At least CBC is just starting with a "hello and welcome" and didn't just all of a sudden come back from a commercial and was like "oh, hello!, we're not going to show you that show you were just watching, we're just going to all of a sudden cut to the coverage of the jubilee service of thanksgiving in the middle of whereever BBC One is with no warning - enjoy "
