That's a lovely and debonair gesture; I hope she gave him a big kiss afterward!

I am sure they did; most of us have basically grown up listening to the marvellous artists and their beautiful songs.
Having so many of them together in one concert is a one of a kind occasion.

That picture of Prince Charles kissing the Queen's hand is so sweet! Prince Charles is always a gentleman.

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.

I worry about that too since I hear rumours they want to present a new modern Britain and think perhaps the monarchy and the military are a quaint and outdated image of the country. Hopefully they wont go too overboard with the avant garde and realize that traditions do have their place in the presentation of the UK.

Pic 1- Elton John's jacket- WOW, um yeah it's.... words fail me! If there had been a power cut, there would not have been an issue! No offense meant, but I hope HM does not join the DOE in hospital with an eye problem!
Pic 2- HM should introduce that guy to Princess Bea, .... or maybe not!

1st article- Grace Jones- OK, I have seen it all now! Can you imagine what Prince Phillip would have said?
Annie Lennox- How bizarre to strap angel wings to your gown!

2nd article-
Camilla's gown reminds me of Cinderella at the ball!

What a wonderful tribute to his mummy. I actually had tears in my eyes! And for the love of god why was Grace Jones there? Im sure they could have found someone more, how should I say, normal. I know its Grace but, really??? Anyway, good show and beautiful display of fireworks. I hope the DoE gets better soon, a shame he will miss out. Long live the Queen and long may she reign!! :)

I'm looking forward to hearing Her Majesty's Jubilee Address. I'm glad she's giving one on this momentous occasion.

I really enjoyed yesterday night concert. I wish I was British...I would have felt so proud.
Her Majesty has been with us for so many years that she is THE QUEEN even for the people from other countries, not just for Great Britain and Commonwealth.

Sorry is there any live streaming of the Service of Thanksgiving at San Paul's?

Centre stage for the Diamond Jubilee concert

I was fortunate enough to have standing tickets - right in front of the stage for last nights concert. Excellent! Such a shame about Phillip though. I have posted a review and excellent photos here.
