I think stoicism was very much part of that generation. My parents were much the same and tried to teach us all that emotion, no matter if joy or grief, should never be expressed in public view.

the only time I remember where you could see HM crying was when the Britannia was decommissioned. But she was visibly close to tears today when the crowd was shouting Philip.

Oh my, I couldn't hold the tears back when Charles talked about Philip, the look on Her Majesty's face ... wow. The whole speech was so beautiful, such a nice tribute to the Queen. Well done Charles, well done.

I wonder if anyone will post any vids of the concert. I missed it though my luck I wouldn't have been able to watch it online. I know we will get some of it on ABC tomorrow night, but it would be nice to watch it without the commerical interupptions.

Charles speech was really nice and it got me a bit teary to.

I think it was so wonderful for Charles to pay tribute to both is parents ... he knows how important Papa is to Maman. Nice touch .. it is very much Prince Philip's Diamond Jubilee also.

I have just re-watched Prince Charles' speech. For 6th or 7th time. It's really one of the best speeches in my memory; touching, succinct, wonderfully delivered. Both the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall appeared to be not only touched by the Prince's words, but also very (and deservingly) proud of him.

My favourite parts:
- 0:03 (Mammy - love the Queen's smile)
- 1:17 (Thank God the weather turned out fine - the Queen's laugh and her remark to the Duchess is just priceless)
- 2:20 (loud cheers for the Duke of Edinburgh, followed by people shouting Philip! Philip!)
- 2:29 and 2:36 (the look on Her Majesty's face; she really is touched by the genuine outpouring of emotions)
- 4:10 (proud to be British)
- 5:10 - 5:20 (three resounding cheers)

I know, I've overused the replay button.
It's just it really was a wonderful speech.

Prince Charles' speech was very moving. He definitely has the art of public speaking down pat. His sincerity and love for his parents was very palpable as he spoke.

The crowds were amazing. In fact, everything about this Jubilee week is amazing.
You know, millions of people around the world - including Armenia - watched yesterday's Pageant and today's concert or part of them, and once again marvelled at British spirit. You really are fascinating lot! No one, not one single nation I know of can organise such splendid displays of pomp and pageantry full of meaning in every detail.

Well, that's one DVD I'm definitely buying.
Wonderful performances, legendary artists, a moving speech.

Yes, football hooligans aside, we are really a pretty peaceful group of people able to gather in the hundreds of thousands to celebrate and not have a riot break out.

Charles did an excellent job with his speech. He was absolutely spot-on. I almost felt like Camilla should have put her arm around the Queen to comfort her when she was overwhelmed with emotion. Then again, I'm not entire sure someone as stoic as HM would appreciate that in public.

However, I'm sure her children and grandchildren all gave her a big hug once they got back to the palace.

I'm sure HM got big hugs afterward, but I doubt she's have appreciated Camilla's (or anyone's) arm around her in public. She's stalwart and contained, and Camilla was smart to realize to just leave her be.

That's very kind of you to say, Artemisia. I hope your fellow Armenians enjoyed it.

Tonight has made me a bit more confident for the Olympics. I think the reason we do the pomp very well is that usually the Queen's staff who organise it all are ex-military. So everything is drilled and planned down to the minute. The Olympics opening and closing ceremonies are being organised by the elite artsy types who run and judge the Turner Prize. Google it to see why I'm worried about these people presenting our nation to the world.
