Unfortunately, I'm watching without any commentary so I'm sure I'm missing a lot of information and these personal interviews.

My, the manoeuvring is impressive.
But I bet there will be sighs of relief when the barge finally docks.

Very impressive parade but I agree that HM looks unhappy because of the cold weather. Don't think that was a stupid comment ....

If there is ever something you can count on, it is the fact that you can never rely of the British weather in the summer.

I'm almost certain they're not there. Nor is the Earl methinks. Not sure why.

No, it's not a stupid comment, it's just an observation. I thought HM looked chilly at times, but at least she's remaining where she is despite the less than ideal conditions.

Thanks, Artemisia, for the new link. I'll try it now.

- Picture
I guess the surprise appearances were for security reason?
Eugenie looked lovely.

Even if Elizabeth is cold she's still standing out there waving and watching all the boats go by, Philip at her side (not bad for a couple who are 86 and 91). I'm sure that means alot to the people participating in the pageant.

Louise and James didn't take part in the Pageant. Their parents were on the same barge as Boris Johnson.

Most probably.
Arranging proper security measures for street parties would have been very hard, not to mention annoying for all those present. Hence the suprise nature of the appearance.

I wonder as well if the suprise visits are partly so that there is no disappointment if a place "only" gets a lesser royal when you know somewhere else is getting someone more senior. Whereas any surprise visit is just a jolly nice surprise.

Louise and James are supposed to be on HMS President with the Camerons - wasn't the royal party mean to be coming off their barge and onto that to watch the finale? Are they running a bit late or maybe they've stayed put because of the weather?

You see them at big events but does that not make the Countess look like a "normal" what ever that it. Love this coverage from the BBC make me feel like I am in London. Will some day.

The comments about the Queen looking miserable are totally stupid in my view. The Queen has been in public view for some 3 solid hours by now, and not once has she sat down. It's impossible for anyone to smile and laugh for 3 hours straight. It reminds me that the Queen was accused of looking unhappy on a foreign tour somewhere and she said "my face is sore from smiling".

Add on to that the fact that it's cold, it's raining and she's been on her feet the whole time, only a robot would have a constant smile on its face in such a scenario.
