True - and in a less bright colour.
The noise must have been quite deafening though and she's an old lady, so I don't blame her.

Opening with a Big Bang! Disabled genius Stephen Hawking is the star turn at the London 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony
Quote:
The Paralympic Games exploded with a Big Bang as Professor Stephen Hawking launched the Opening Ceremony in front of more than a billion viewers on an 'exquisite journey of discovery'. The cosmos guru, who has motor neurone disease, opened the spectacular in his unique and distinctive voice. Sir Ian McKellan then portrayed Prospero from the Tempest before Professor Hawking guided the audience through 'the wonders of science' in a variety of narratives inspired by his seminal tome A Brief History of Time. While his exact role has been kept a closely guarded secret in the build up to the extravaganza, it is known Mr Hawking will explore themes including 'empowerment' and 'challenging perceptions of human possibility
Over-use of "Big Bang" if there had ever been one. Yes, we know Stephen Hawking is "cosmos guru". What an inspirational man though!

Going for gold: The Duchess of Cambridge glitters at the Paralympic Opening Ceremony alongside husband William (but where's Harry?)
Quote:
It will take more than a few delays and downpours to stop the royal family showing their sporting support. Tonight just over two weeks after the world class closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics Queen Elizabeth and her family took their places back in East London's Olympic arena to celebrate the opening of the 14th Paralympic Games. Arriving with the President of the Paralympic Committee Queen Elizabeth said: 'It is with tremendous pride that the people of London and the United Kingdom welcome the world to the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Thank you for the pictures. Everyone looks lovely. Her Majesty appears to be a little on the exhausted side though.

My word, they're making the GB Paralympians wear the same much-derided chavvy white and gold Next tracksuits that they had the Olympians wear. I mean, Stella McCartney, who managed to mess up the Union Flag for Team GB's kit, publicly denied having anything to do with them, which means they're seriously bad. Whoever made that decision needs to have a word with themselves.

At least the Queen wasn't caught picking her fingernails this time when GB came out. She actually managed to look mildly interested.

Princess Anne was getting into the spirit of things with her Paralympics GB scarf.

I'm going to venture and say that it's something like earplugs to dim the noise.
