Quote:

The Queen was today greeted by cheering crowds as she made her first appearance of her Diamond Jubilee four-day-long weekend of celebrations at Epsom racecourse. Wearing a regal Royal blue coat with matching hat over a white floral gown, Queen Elizabeth smiled and waved as hundreds of thousands of race-goers flew flags and shouted messages of support from the course sidelines covered in bunting. The Queen and Prince Philip were joined by a large party which included the Duke of York and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie and the monarch's racing manager John Warren.

What a great start to the jubilee. I thought all the royals without exception looked pretty wonderful & the sun came out too. Now if only it doesn't rain on the parade/ pageant

ghost_night554 06-02-2012 04:04 PM

For confirmation purposes I asked and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry , Charles, Camilla and the Yorks and Wessexs' will all be present during Jubilee celebrations unlike today with the absence of Harry, William and Catherine and Charles and Camilla

I think they didn't go to the Derby because they didn't want to take away the attention from the Queen. Since we'll be seeing them all weekend long I think they figured missing this one wasn't a huge deal. Atleast that's my guess.

Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: Jubilee Weekend: Thank you Ma'am

Speculation was mounting last night that the Queen will then make a televised address thanking the nation for joining in her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

A TV insider said: “Broadcasters have been put on stand-by for 6pm on Tuesday but nothing has been confirmed.”
